Forbidden Duck is among Chef Leung's latest offerings, and began with an outlet in Hong Kong's Causeway Bay last year. The Hong Kong restaurant's dim sum menu offers items including crispy duck skin with smoked soft-boiled duck egg and salt and pepper bombay duck while its a la carte menu includes barbecue Yunnan black pig "char siu" and lobster and vermicelli with black truffle har mi XO.

MBFC will also add another eatery in April - the one-Michelin-starred restaurant, Qi - House Of Sichuan. This branch of the Hong Kong restaurant will feature contemporary Sichuan dishes.
