Master Chef

Despite being a native of Japan, I developed a passion for Chinese culture from an early age.

I honed my skills and style during the first ten years of my illustrious career by working at a number of Shanghainese restaurants across Japan.

My specialty is traditional Shanghainese cuisine. Come and visit me at the Yu Lei restaurant in HK.
