Executive Chef Wilson Fam & Chef de Cuisine Angelo Wong – Yí at Morpheus, City of Dreams
Dynamic chef duo Wilson Fam and Angelo Wong are the creative talents behind the critically acclaimed menus at Yí. Together, the chefs take Chinese gastronomy to new heights, and promise an innovative showcase of regional cuisine that reflects Yí’s contemporary soul.
Previously of Singapore’s iconic and world-famous Raffles Hotel, Executive Chef Wilson Fam has been instrumental in achieving the much-coveted MICHELIN stars for restaurants at City of Dreams, Macau. With his passion for authentic regional cuisine and wealth of culinary creativity, Morpheus is proud to present chef Wilson as the driving force behind the hotel’s contemporary Chinese restaurant, Yí. As Yí’s inaugural Chef de Cuisine, chef Angelo Wong oversees a team of specialist cooks from almost every province of China to bring a distinctly modern edge to a variety of classic Chinese dishes. Following a short tenure at the Greater China Club, chef Angelo went on to head the Hong Kong opening of Howard’s Gourmet in October 2015, leading the restaurant through an astounding series of accolades. Since 2016, he has also been a key member of the Hong Kong Culinary National Team, representing the city on the international competitive stage.
At Yí, guests experience a daily and ever-evolving chef’s menu that showcases a one-of-a-kind blend of regional Chinese cuisines served in a ‘non-menu’ style – the first of its kind in Asia.
Vicky Lau – Chef-Founder of Tate Dining Room Hong Kong
The undisputed queen of innovative French-Chinese fine dining in Hong Kong, chef Vicky Lau takes pride in her talent for visual artistry from her previous life as a graphic designer.
