Name: Ho Yum何 鑫
Originally from Fujian, Chef Ho Yum has 37 years' experience in the art of noodle making.
For over a decade, Chef Ho mentored under a highly acclaimed noodle champion who helmed the now-defunct Five Dragon Restaurant in Hong Kong, before moving on to several well-established Chinese eateries, including the Michelin-starred MAK's noodles.
Chef Ho takes great care in crafting each and every component in his dishes, particularly his signature wonton noodles. The soup for his wonton noodles uses a special blend of herbs such as wolfberries and "luo han guo", which flavours the rich pork broth and gives it its delicious fragrance and natural intensity.
Besides the soup, Chef Ho also insists on preparing the traditional shrimp wonton using his personal painstaking technique of constantly introducing oxygen into the water while rinsing fresh prawns, a trick that he believes ensures a natural crisp texture when the prawns are cooked.
