Master of the Wok

Chef Lung is one of the main Wok chefs at Chung Ying Central. His skill and expertise in flavouring and combining ingredients at the right time using the wok is well known in the Chinese and Vietnamese community.

Lung started in 1987 at Chung Ying Garden as a kitchen porter, he worked his way up at Chung Ying Garden to become one of the most respected chefs in China Town. Lung is Vietnamese-Chinese so when he isn’t stir frying some delicious dishes up for customers at Chung Ying Central, he is making authentic Chinese and Vietnamese ‘off the menu’ items for staff and customers to try.
