Hong Kong Tatler Best Restaurants (Hong Kong / Macau) - - Editor’s choice -

hen Dud­dell’s opened i n the spring of 2013, it seemed to un­leash a wave of con­tem­po­rary Chi­nese restau­rant open­ings, where clas­sic re­gional flavours were cel­e­brated i n en­vi­ron­ments that di­verged from the stereo­typ­i­cal East­ern aes­thetic. As t he i nau­gu­ral joint project be­tween restau­ra­teur couple Yenn Wong and Alan Lo, plus Lo’s busi­ness part­ner, Paulo Pong, Dud­dell’s was un­like any­thing we had seen be­fore in Hong Kong. A restau­rant that also dou­bles as an art gallery? Could this trio really put their money where their mouths were?

Fast-for­ward to July 2015, as the restau­rant cel­e­brated its sec­ond an­niver­sary with a high-oc­tane shindig that, in clas­sic Dud­dell’s fash­ion, paid homage to tra­di­tion­all Chi­nese arts and crafts as well as i t s c uu ll ii nn aa rr yy spe­cial­i­ties—the en­trepreneurs, sur­rounded by scores of their clos­es­tst friends, fans and supporters, toasted d to the night be­fore dig­ging into lucky peach-shaped buns (sym­bols of longevity) and set­tling down into a game of mahjong.
