About
Ho Lee Fook, which translates to “good fortune for your mouth” in Cantonese, is a funky Chinese kitchen inspired by old-school Hong Kong cha chaan tengs and the spirit of late-night Chinatown hangouts in 1960’s New York. Taiwanese-born chef Jowett Yu’s innovative cooking style reinterprets classic Chinese dishes and flavours with premium ingredients, modern techniques and a touch of humour.

Heard about this place from many friends and was very excited to come. I knew what I was going to order months ahead of time, and it lived up to my expectations. The Short Rib was perfectly cooked, and eternally memorable.More

The decor is super nice and very different than usual restaurants. The menu is tight and quite interesting, but food is generally bad: there was so much salt and msg in everything we had. Spicy chicken wings and crispy chicken were better... steamed asparagus, bamboo...More
