Josh and Caleb Ng are the duo be­hind Twins Kitchen, the brand and plat­form be­hind some of Hong Kong’s most ex­cit­ing F&B ini­tia­tives. The twin brothers have piled a lot on their plates over the years—in­clud­ing open­ing a dumpling bar, Gao, in Copen­hagen

and launch­ing In­ter­val, a cof­fee bar and event space on Welling­ton Street, all while ex­plor­ing even more pos­si­bil­i­ties in the culi­nary space. In 2018, the duo saw the need

to sup­port bud­ding lo­cal en­trepreneurs and chefs, and launched Taste Kitchen at PMQ, the city’s first in­cu­ba­tion pro­gramme for restau­rants. By of­fer­ing the space (with a fully func­tion­ing kitchen and bar) at a nice price, as well as sup­port staff at the front and back of house, the twins have cre­ated a space where lo­cal in­no­va­tion can thrive. At least two chefs—Stephanie Wong of Roots Eatery and Zahir Mo­hamed of Baked— have opened in­de­pen­dent eater­ies soon af­ter their stints at Taste Kitchen, and we can’t wait to see how else the brothers will use their re­sources and in­flu­ence to help

grow our lo­cal din­ing scene.

RUN­NER UP With his vo­cal sup­port for homegrown pro­duce and lo­cal seafood, Vicky Cheng has been a solid cham­pion for what Hong Kong has to of­fer.
