So this is where it all began, the launding point for the career of Hong Kong's gold medal winning Olympian, Lee Lai-shan (San San): The Cheung Chau Windsurfing Centre. Set on a tiny headland between Cheung Chau's two main beaches, the centre commands fine views of the island, and eastwards to Lamma and Hong Kong Island.
Just heard that one of Cheung Chau's non-Cantonese seafood restaurants may close before long. Hasn't been open a real long time.
Hardly an uncommon tale: someone opens a different type of restaurant here, the food may be decent, but after a while, it's bye-bye. Nepalese, Italian pizza, Malaysian, Thai ... the list goes on.
So what is it about Cheung Chau and non-Cantonese style seafood restaurants? We have plethora of seafood places, a smattering of dai pai dong type joints, a very few doing something like western, but not much else that works for long.
