"Food is a way for people to share their history, their culture, and their hopes for the future. It’s an art form that we enjoy daily. I love the food I grew up with, that’s why at Jing Yaa Tang I try to pay homage to classic recipes and ingredients."

Li Dong

Executive Chef at Jing Yaa Tang and Superfly, The Opposite House
