Alvin Leung, the two Michelin starred chef of multi award-winning Hong-Kong based restaurant Bo Innovation is to bring his X-treme Chinese cuisine to London in September 2012. Bo London in Mayfair will be Leung’s first establishment outside Hong Kong.
“I was born in London, although I spent many years in Canada before moving to Hong Kong. I have wanted to open a place in London for years. I love the city and am frequently here. I think London offers one of the most diverse and exciting restaurant scenes in the world and I really want Bo to be a part of that”, said Leung.
Originally an acoustic engineer, Leung is a self-taught chef who has combined his extensive knowledge of world cuisine with his cultural heritage to create a unique brand of cuisine that he calls “X-treme Chinese”. His approach has modernised Chinese cuisine through combining aged recipes with modern cooking techniques.
By changing perceptions of traditional regional Chinese food, Bo London hopes to bring an evolution of Chinese gastronomy to London. Its menu will feature signature dishes from Hong Kong Bo Innovation alongside other new dishes created with a British inspiration.
“I like to challenge people’s expectations, to surprise and excite them. My aim is to have people say ‘That was the best meal I’ve ever had”, and just work backwards from that”.
Bo London is to open in September 2012 in the heart of Mayfair.
