He learned the traditional Chinese cooking techniques from a few experienced chefs including Hugo Leung (食神梁文韜) in Hong Kong, and applies the skills he learnt to different cuisines.

Leo studied hospitality management in Australia, he proceeded to worked in various restaurants there for 5 years after his graduation. After his return to Hong Kong, he gained experience in opening new restaurants together with a former hotel Executive Chef.

Chef arrived our home in the afternoon and started preparing the dinner before I came home after a birthday party with my children outside. I felt so relaxed because I could spend time to chat with my guests and leave the kitchen work to Leo. I’m not a fan of Chinese food, so I didn't expect much when I saw the menu. I just picked food that suits most people’s appetite, however, Leo’s food surprised us, his dishes are impressive!
The soft crab shell is never a food I like, but Chef made his 椒鹽軟殼蟹 in a special way, he specially filled shrimp paste in the crab shell. It is impressing and tastes so good! For the clams 油鹽水魚湯大蜆, I originally thought it’s a dish you could easily find in a restaurant, yet Leo's tastes much more special, you will know what I mean even if you just smell it! -- "love at first smell" ! And also his chicken rice 河源走地雞配籠仔荷葉飯, the smell was already making us hungry when he prepared it during the afternoon!
Since we live in Sai Kung where seafood is fresh and easily found, we often buy and cook fresh abalone at home too! This day, Leo prepared the abalone 夜魅燒汁大鮑魚with a slow cook method, which keeps the texture soft and the taste fresh, totally different from traditional cooking method that sometimes may make it chewy.
We are already planning the next dinner with Leo. Can’t wait!

It was wonderful dinner with Chef Leo and mobichef on the birthday dinner. Mobichef provided very comprehensive and thoughtful service from the very first min we contacted till the end of the dinner. All the service, foods, dishes, presentation, people are amazingly well planned and professional. We had a 10-course dinner that night and every single dish brought us brand new favors on those ingredients.
The curry beef in pineapple bun was surprising. The bread was freshly baked in our oven, perfectly raised. The slightly sweet bread crust and curry beef were unexpectedly matched. The free-range chicken was perfectly cooked. Even the last dish of the menu – Mango sago dessert was incredible. Sago was chewy, mango was sweet and the dessert soup base was naturally flavored. Every ingredient on Chef Leo’s selection was fresh which is most important in the meal.
Big thanks to Mobichef and Chef Leo for the remarkable night.
