H One in the IFC Mall is among the restaurants affected by the international drama caused by Iceland's volcano because they couldn't get their regular produce from Europe. Luckily, they have a guest chef from the Middle East by way of Australia. Lebanese-Australian Zahi Azzi (pictured) owns two popular restaurants in Sydney called Kazbah, but he'll be here preparing his contemporary Lebanese and Moroccan cuisine at H One until April 29. 'Some of the staff can't speak English so communication is a little tough, but the kitchen is coming along fine,' Azzi said. 'I've brought some ingredients from Australia but most things you can get anywhere now. My flavours are the same [as traditional dishes], but the dishes are more modern. There's a big Lebanese community in Sydney and they have everything there.' While H One is relying on the antipodes for kitchen inspiration for the next week and a half, the JC Group's other IFC dining outlet, Harlan's, will be preparing for a trip across the harbour to its new home. According to director Eric Ting Koon-tak, the continental fine dining outlet will pack up at the end of May and migrate to Tsim Sha Tsui, to a new mall off Nathan Road called The One. 'We'll be on the 19th floor of a shopping centre,' Ting said. 'We'll have a full panorama view and the private dining room has its own balcony. We've also been talking to the top chef in Thailand to open a new place in the ICC when that is finished later this year.'
