Celebrity Cuisine is located inside the Lan Kwai Fong Hotel. The boutique hotel is a perfect alternative for everyone looking for something different compared to Hong Kong’s many famous lavish five star hotels of international brands. Lan Kwai Fong’s signature restaurant is also a great alternative to the more well-known hotels restaurants. Several of the best restaurants in Hong Kong are located in the most famous hotels.
The nightlife and entertainment area of Lan Kwai Fong and SoHo is just within walking distance from restaurant Celebrity Cuisine which is one of Hong Kong’s best classic Cantonese cuisine restaurants. The small restaurant of just 40 seats is most famous for its delicious poultry such as the braised duck with conpoy and chestnut, the bird’s nest stuffed in chicken wings and the chicken with the Chinese Shaoxing Wine. You should order in at least one poultry dish, but there are several other delicacies as well, like the fried or the steamed crab claw stuffed with minced shrimp. Order in several dishes at once and do not forget to include the superior soup with shrimp and the stirfried tripe with black bean and chili sauce.
Chef Cheng Kam Fu was the personal Chef of the Hong Kong textiles tycoon Lim Por-Yen before he started to work full-time with his own Celebrity Cuisine. His simple philosophy of cooking which makes his guests happy works well indeed, because you are going to leave your dinner at the small restaurant with a smile on your face. Cheng Kam Fu wanted to share his culinary gift with more people than just the patron he used to work for and we are grateful for that. The restaurant has been well-known amongst the local top clientele and many outside Hong Kong have started to find this gem of a restaurant as well.
Chef Cheng’s savoury Cantonese cuisine is one of the best in Hong Kong and a must for all foodies seeking top quality food in a smaller cosier environment. You will have a good time and the relaxed atmosphere in the dining room combined with a delicious palate makes a reservation essential.
