Welcome to 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 Ho Lee Fook in Hong Kong, Chef Jowett Yu and his team sit down for a pre-dinner service staff meal featuring roast barramundi, steamed loofah, and fried anchovies.

"Restaurants are open on holidays, Christmas, New Year's, Chinese New Year—when everyone else is playing, we're here working," Yu says. "So I like to make a point of making a big Christmas dinner or Chinese New Year's dinner because if they're not going to see their family, at least we want to make it worthwhile when they're working here."

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