The China Club

Lung King Heen – the best Chinese in the world?

Lung King Heen is the only restaurant in Hong Kong that got three Michelin stars. Obviously, it is the only Chinese (Cantonese) that I know who has such a high rating. So is it really the best Chinese in the world? I am not a big connoisseur of Chinese food.…
