Help us shop and eat well in Hong Kong.

My wife and I are soon visiting Hong Kong for eight days and are looking to spend some of that time improving our wardrobes and eating well.
- Beyond getting suits and shirts tailored, is there a place we can go to have existing items reproduced? Specifically, my wife has some jersey knit and non-"structured" garments that she loves and would like to get made in different colors. Price is not necessarily a prohibitive factor but we'd like to pay less than it would cost at home in London.
- Besides tailors, what are some ready-made clothing shops you would recommend visiting that can't be found in the US or UK? Think more Anthropologie/Muji and less Abercrombie/Gucci.
- We love good food and would appreciate any recommendations for unmissable meals. One of our favorite cuisines is Korean Food, specifically Korean BBQ. How should we go about fulfilling this urge?
All advice is greatly appreciated, thank you!
