    Cocooning myself to meditate on The Greatest Chinese restaurant in the world (outside Greater China)

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | July 10, 2007

    I’m back, shaking off jetlag, from with one last chapter to write: The hunt for the greatest Chinese restaurant in the world outside Greater China (which is subtly different from “best Chinese restaurant in the world outside Greater China,” because one can be the greatest restaurant without being the best.  (The chapter explains) This crazy search took me to a bunch of different countries/cities: London, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, Seoul, San Francisco, Singapore, Los Angeles, Lima, Melbourne, Sydney, Vancouver, Toronto, Bangkok, Mauritius, Dubai, Auckland, Mumbai, Kingston (Jamaica). It was actually in Tokyo that I went to Yuji Wayika’s Wakiya, and London that I went to Alan Yau’s Hakkasan (both of who were tapped to open a Chinese restaurant for the Gramercy Park Hotel).  So I’m cocooning myself until this chapter is done.
