Introducing the premiere episode of Family Meal, a new Tatler Hong Kong mini-documentary series featuring chefs and restaurant teams in Hong Kong. Here's a behind-the-scenes peek at what happens at a restaurant in between lunch and dinner

Family Meal is a new mini-documentary series from Tatler Hong Kong that features a behind-the-scenes peek into the between-lunch-and-dinner-service space with chefs and restaurant teams who embody the city's spirit of innovation, creativity, and culture. At Ando, Chef Agustin Balbi's team sits down for a pre-dinner service staff meal featuring wagyu end cuts, choy sum with garlic, and tomato with egg and chorizo.

"Staff meal is the only time we're going to sit together and enjoy a relaxing moment," Balbi says. "It's very important because we spend more time here than we spend at our house. This is our family."

This video was filmed in August 2020, during the government-mandated evening dine-in ban.
