Former Executive Chef of Hong Kong Government House and Lai Bun Fu Present Traditional Chinese Cuisine with Authentic Hong Kong Hospitality
Gourmets will be excited to discover a new restaurant offering fine traditional Chinese cuisine with a modern twist that opens on 18 December at 18 On Lan Street in Central, a discrete yet fashionable district in the heart of Hong Kong’s Central Business District that, with the addition of a few new restaurants, is fast becoming the newest dining destination. Named “Lai Bun Fu”, the fine-dining restaurant will be helmed by former Government House Executive Chef Chung Kin Leung.
In Cantonese, Lai Bun means “hospitality”, while “Fu” refers to “sifu”, or master chef. As a result the restaurant aims to present guests with exquisite dishes served with conviviality. The restaurant also represents Hong Kong, as Chef Chung previously prepared dishes for world leaders such as US President George Bush and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, presenting the best of Hong Kong and the region through the finest ingredients and culinary skills.
At Lai Bun Fu, the authentic cuisine is prepared by a team of experienced chefs helmed by Chef Chung, coupled with a carefully selected premium Chinese tea and international wine collection, innovative cocktails and cutting-edge interior design to create a novel culinary journey. Harking back to Chef Chung’s 10 years at the Hong Kong Government House, Lai Bun Fu will recreate the timeless sophistication and elegance of European architecture.
Originally from Guangzhou, the home of “yue cai” or Cantonese cuisine, Chef Chung became interested in food at an early age which further blossomed when he arrived in Hong Kong at a formative age. His passion for learning more about food led to him to pursue an apprenticeship at the age of 16 at a renowned catering group that specializes in banquets and premium ingredients. It was here that Chef Chung learned the art of fine traditional Cantonese cuisine and his culinary talent and interest in food propelled him quickly up the ranks to become head chef of this top catering group. His unique ability to execute traditionally simple dishes with exquisite flavours into a fine dining experience quickly earned him numerous accolades and high praise. In 1998, Chef Chung’s culinary prowess caught the attention of prominent epicurean and then Financial Secretary of Hong Kong, who invited him to become head chef at his official residence. From 2001 to 2005, Chef Chung was then given the esteemed opportunity to head the kitchens at the Chief Secretary Residence and most recently at Government House from 2005-2014, where he showcased his culinary talents to formidable diners, including numerous dignitaries, international business leaders, and heads of states.
The highly anticipated menu will showcase a number of Chef Chung’s signature dishes from his Government House days as Executive Chef there, as well as VIP favourites. These include Sifu’s Crispy Chicken with 5 flavour condiments, and Foie Gras Prawn Cutlets on Toast, featuring whole fresh prawn on bread topped with smooth and creamy foie gras. Featuring Hong Kong’s exquisite dried seafood, Lai Bun Fu Extra Special Hot Pot combines fish maw, abalone, sea cucumber, and goose webs, which are carefully simmered in a claypot, resulting in a flavourful experience.
Traditional Cantonese double-boiled soups feature prominently on the menu, with such health-conscious concoctions as Bird’s Nest with Minced Chicken Soup, Vegetarian Shark’s Fin with Abalone Soup, Fish Maw with Chinese Cabbage and Shiitake Mushroom Soup,Chicken Soup with Eel and Preserved Salty Cabbage and more.
The extensive menu combines Chef Chung’s secret recipes and premium ingredients, such as Fresh Crab Claw Stir-fried with Egg White and Milk in Traditional Style, Traditional-style Steamed Chicken (to be pre-ordered one week in advance), Poached Thick Cut Conch with Oyster Sauce and Shrimp Paste Dip, and Typhoon Shelter Crab with Garlic and Chili.
For greener and healthier choices, Lai Bun Fu’s menu also features tantalizing vegetarian specialties, including Poached Seasonal Vegetables with Silk Beancurd, Steamed Bamboo Fungus, Elm Fungus and Asparagus Roll, Braised Winter Melon Stuffed with Assorted Mushrooms, and his signature Stir-fried Five-Coloured Vegetables.
Lai Bun Fu features an interior of over 2,000 sq ft of dining space that seats 52 guests and a private room for up to 14 guests.Designed by Hands Hospitality Limited, the interior and meticulous detailing of Lai Bun Fu recreates the old British colonial Hong Kong yet with a new innovative zest of modernity. Endowed with an East-meets-West ambience, the nostalgic aura with a modern twist exemplifies the past, present and future of Hong Kong. The flooring features classic beige and white checkered marble, while the walls will be covered with fine leather panels decorated with elaborately decorated ceramic plates with architectural themes.
For a touch of wit, the theme of the top hat and coat rack along the windows pay homage to the forever suave James Bond, while a striking pendant lamp is made of crystal cut glass ice buckets.
Lai Bun Fu is located at 5/F, 18 On Lan Street, Central, Hong Kong.

Battery technology has continued a steady improvement in recent years, as has our experience in optimizing total vehicle efficiency. We have long been excited to apply our learning back to our first vehicle, and are thrilled to do just that with the prototype Roadster 3.0 package. It consists of three main improvement areas.
The original Roadster battery was the very first lithium ion battery put into production in any vehicle. It was state of the art in 2008, but cell technology has improved substantially since then. We have identified a new cell that has 31% more energy than the original Roadster cell. Using this new cell we have created a battery pack that delivers roughly 70kWh in the same package as the original battery.
The original Roadster had a drag coefficient (Cd) of 0.36. Using modern computational methods we expect to make a 15% improvement, dropping the total Cd down to 0.31 with a retrofit aero kit.
3. Rolling Resistance
The original Roadster tires have a rolling resistance coefficient (Crr) of 11.0 kg/ton. New tires that we will use on the Roadster 3.0 have a Crr of roughly 8.9 kg/ton, about a 20% improvement. We are also making improvements in the wheel bearings and residual brake drag that further reduce overall rolling resistance of the car.
Combining all of these improvements we can achieve a predicted 40-50% improvement on range between the original Roadster and Roadster 3.0. There is a set of speeds and driving conditions where we can confidently drive the Roadster 3.0 over 400 miles. We will be demonstrating this in the real world during a non-stop drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles in the early weeks of 2015.
When he's not creating art with his famous Wiemeraners, William Wegman has other dog related interests. He designed a series of dog beds for Crypton that feature his drawings as fabric patterns. The beds are virtually water proof (technically water and moisture resistant) and resist stains and bacteria.
