A three-star Michelin Chinese restaurant from Hong Kong challenges the north with a branch in Beijing. Pauline D. Loh explores the menu and the stories.

Two white stone lions guard the entrance, and red ribbons tied around their necks announce that the restaurant is officially ready for visitors, finally. Sun Tung Lok is now in Beijing. As is fitting for a Chinese restaurant that has won the rare honor of being awarded three Michelin stars in its native Hong Kong, Sun Tung Lok comes with major baggage - its formidable reputation. Its owners, the Yuen family, are from a culinary dynasty that has been in the business for more than 40 years, and they are setting out to conquer the capital with a carefully planned strategy.
