The Chef and the Brigade
Full BioHong Kong-born Chef Richie Lin began his career by moving to Australia to cook, where he met Australian chef, Kai Ward, at Restaurant Quay. The two were working under guidance of Peter Gilmore, and the young chefs (and later business partners) hit it off immediately.
Following Quay, Richie then headed north to Copenhagen where he met fellow NOMA chef and future co-head chef, Long Xiong.
Post-Noma, Chef Richie was brought on as a consultant for an ambitious opening in Hong Kong and thought that Chef Long having previously worked at Per Se (NYC), might have something to add to the equation. After going through a difficult but very educational opening in Hong Kong, Richie realised it was time to make his own dream a reality. He brought both chefs Kai and Long onboard, introducing them to the abundant, untapped and underrated local resources of Taiwan, applying modern European techniques to create the extraordinary cuisine of this casual fine diner. MUME, is the word for the plum blossom, the national flower of Taiwan, and also shares the same Chinese characters of Richie’s mother’s first name.
