Chef Jimmy Kwok rumored to have died in Shanghai

(Gary Soup) #1

Talk among Chinatown restaurateurs is that renowned Vietnamese chef Jimmy Kwok (Bodega Bistro, Begoni Bistro, etc.) has passed away. After being cut loose from a struggling Begoni Bistro, he relocated to Shanghai and opened a restaurant there, and reportedly suffered a recent fatal heart attack.

I have not found confirmation of this in the English media. Perhaps someone more competent than I in searching the Chinese media can check the story out.


None in the chinese media either searching his name 郭羣之.

I don’t know him, so I have no idea of his his face. The rumor has he passed away when?

I found this Jimmy Kwok (who I believe to be a Vietnamese chef as well) made his last tweet on Oct 19th.

Not him.


My sources have confirmed this to be unfortunately true, coming from those who were friends with Jimmy.
