Q In the Kitchen

Chef Kai Ward, Richie Lin and Long Xiong.

Even though all 3 chefs come from various countries, they’ve joined together to open a restaurant in 2014 that soon entered into the “Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants” in 2017. It also won the highest climber award as it was listed at No 43 in 2017 and quickly climbed to No.18.
Chef Richie Lin grew up in Canada and started his culinary career in Europe and then moved on to work in various restaurants around the world in Sydney and Hong Kong. Then during a meeting, the three chefs understood that they all have the same kind of aspiration and hence decided to open their own restaurant Mume. They always insist that most of their dishes were created using ingredients that are 90% sourced from the local farms.
