I had eaten in Xi Yan in Wan Chai, Hong Kong some years ago by chef Jacky Yu. This year I would like to go back for another meal, to my surprised in the open rice website, it is marked closed. Since I didn’t have my computer with me at that time, and his website was in Flash, I didn’t bother to look up for him anymore and replaced with other meals. Now that I have returned home, I looked at his site, he didn’t say anything and there were still his addresses. His Facebook disappeared. Some Google cache said he closed his restaurants in mi-July, 2016.
Does it mean that he is retreating to Singapore? Anybody from Singapore can confirm this?
I don’t know how the locals in HK thinks about him, but he is a pretty high profile chef, even Phaidon has a book by him. It is such a shock that he is abandoning Hong Kong though.
