CHEF MAY CHOW
With a reputation for creating unexpected flavor twists, mixing fine dining techniques and traditional ingredients, May Chow has garnered a loyal following of diners as well as critical acclaim; being named Asia’s Best Female Chef 2017. Chow burst onto Hong Kong’s foodie scene in 2013 with Little Bao; a hipster haven serving inimitable Chinese burgers. Five years later, diners are still lining up outside for a taste. In 2018, Little Bao expands into a new location in Causeway Bay. Little Bao’s instantly recognizable baby head sign has become a Hong Kong icon, while Chow’s Chinese-American burger invention continues to turn heads and her top-notch drink selections keep tongues wagging.
In 2017 Chow’s Chinese heritage and American upbringing inspired the opening of Happy Paradise. Here, Chow reinvigorates classic recipes and underappreciated ingredients; forging the future direction of local cuisine without losing any of its original essence. The results are equally satisfying for nostalgic locals as for neophiles seeking out a brand new experience.
Chow’s success is due to more than her style and creativity; her work is underwritten by dynamic cross-cultural knowhow. Her popularity stems from skill as an innovator – always looking for the next inspiration – and her understanding of what makes diners really tick.
