Known simply by his moniker “demon chef” Alvin Leung is a pivotal figure in Hong Kong’s culinary landscape. Leung first made a name for himself with his flagship restaurant Bo Innovation, which has retained three Michelin stars since 2013.
There, Leung popularised his signature X-Treme Chinese cuisine, throwing out all the rulebooks to create modern, inventive Oriental food. Leung is also a familiar face on MasterChef Canada, where he serves as a judge.
Now – for the first time ever – Malaysia will have an association with the famed chef through his partnership with Fuhu Restaurant & Bar, the new vibe dining concept by Zouk Group set to open tomorrow at Resorts World Genting.
“The launch of FUHU Restaurant & Bar is a monumental occasion for Zouk Group, as it marks our first foray into F&B,” says Andrew Li, chief executive officer of Zouk Group.
“We are committed to providing the best, and there is no better way to mark this milestone than to partner a culinary mastermind such as Alvin Leung.”
Leung’s involvement is certain to inspire innovation and a bold, sanguine direction for Fuhu, which will feature a modern spin on classic Asian fare.
Menu items to look out for include Fuhu roasted duck, Boston lobster noodles, Szechuan-style hot & sour lobster soup and fried chicken and waffle.
Fuhu seats up to 150 diners and will feature an interplay of dining, nightlife and music, the latter of which the Zouk Group is most well-known for.
Aesthetically, the restaurant is designed to inspire wonder and joy, with a Chinese apothecary themed entrance, gargantuan sakura tree and floor-to-ceiling mural by grafitti artist Kenji Chai taking centrestage.
