05 | 11 | 12

The Michelin-starred chef behind Hong Kong's acclaimed Bo Innovation restaurant has revealed more details about his forthcoming London eatery, Bo London.

Alvin Leung will launch the new site on December 6th, following the completion of refurbishment work in the Mayfair establishment, which will be fully fitted with modern kitchen equipment and appliances.

London-born Leung has been thrust into the spotlight following the runaway success of his Hong Kong venture, despite the fact that the self-taught chef has only been cooking professionally for eight years, reports Caterer and Hotelkeeper.

Having initially trained as an engineer, the talented restaurateur won his Michelin stars in 2008.

He told the magazine that he has been keen to launch a restaurant in London for years because of his connection with the city and his enthusiasm for its vibrant, interesting food scene.

"London has this unique energy and just feels different from any other city I've been to. It has a wonderful rich history of tradition, ceremony and craftsmanship," he explained.

Praising the city's exciting fashion, music, art and design scene, the acclaimed chef added: "I'm really looking forward to opening Bo London and becoming part of it."

Bo London will introduce Leung's signature style to the capital, combining traditional Chinese flavours with modern touches and cooking methods to produce what he describes as 'x-treme Chinese cusine'.

The menu will feature some of the highlights of Bo Innovation's selection as well as brand new dishes inspired by British cooking.

Your Studio has designed the interior, which takes its influence from the four elements of fire, water, wind and earth and is expected to include a combination of wood, marble and coarse-cut granite to create a stylish effect.

Writing about the Bo Innovation, the South China Morning Post said: "This is one of the best meals I've eaten in Hong Kong and by far the most innovative".ADNFCR-16001031-ID-801481969-ADNFCR
