The G.O.D. of All Things

Hong Kong Tatler - - Off The Record -

Hong kong’s cel­e­brated king of knick-knacks, home­wares, fur­ni­ture and fash­ion, Dou­glas Young, can now also claim the ti­tle of restau­ra­teur. The founder of the G.O.D. life­style la­bel will open his eatery at PMQ at the end of the month, serv­ing din­ers scrump­tious Can­tonese com­fort food in­spired by his mother’s home cook­ing from the ’70s. The She­ung Wan cafe will cook up fresh, healthy Asian fare that uses herbs and vegetables grown in its own kitchen gar­den. “I’ve al­ways be­lieved that with fresh in­gre­di­ents, you don’t need to over-em­bel­lish with the cook­ing,” says Young. The cafe is in­spired by “sim­ple hon­est places that hap­pen to be cool and not all hyped up,” such as the River Cafe in London and The Never End­ing Sum­mer in Bangkok. The name is yet to be re­vealed. Young did, how­ever, de­vise the risqué name of El­gin Street dumpling house Ho Lee Fook, so we sus­pect it will be some­thing suit­ably catchy.
