GOURMET Alan Mercer, an international financial planner with interests in Hong Kong, claims to have had one of his finest meals ever in the territory.
A member of the Chaine de Rotisseurs for two decades, Alan has been hoping to visit the Yung Kee restaurant in Wellington Street ever since Fortune Restaurant some 20 years ago named it as one of the finest in the world.
In those days, it was a simple lunchbox eatery with premises on the fourth floor only. However, people would queue all the way along the street to get a meal.
Now Kinsen Kam, the general manager, caters on four floors and the walls are covered with certificates of merit.
'It certainly deserves all the plaudits,' said a satisfied Alan. 'The minced pigeon was delicious.' DETAILS of the new-look Radio 3 line-up will be announced next Wednesday after a thorough review by its recently-appointed head, Martin Clarke. The new schedule will begin on April 3 and to mark the announcement, the lunchtime show with Liz Case will be broadcast live from Queensway Studios. Expect the station to be less - how can we put it? - safari-suited in future, although Ralph Pixton will be staying put.
TALKING of RTHK, Radio 3 quite literally gave the Hilton Playhouse the bird yesterday. Liz Case received a call from Hilton PR manager Philippa Yule to say that the tape of a cuckoo needed for the production of Blithe Spirit, which opened last night, had been damaged. A rummage through the sound archives duly produced a replacement and saved the day for producer Derek Nimmo.
