What a big week. My restaurant, Hello Miss Dong won the editor’s pick for outstanding south-east asian restaurant of the year by CityWeekend, and I woke up to people showing me, myself on the newspaper the morning after.

Big thanks to Shanghai Daily for the full page feature of me last Friday. That said, I was not informed about the headline they would choose, and definitely DO NOT claim the title of a ‘walking restaurant encylopedia’ , but you can call me whatever you want. 🙂

Here’s the full article, original published on the Friday 27th May 2016 edition of the Shanghai Daily newspaper. The online version can be found here.

Fred “The Shanghai Kid” Lin was born in Singapore, and grew up in a family of foodies and home-cooks. He moved to Shanghai in 2007 and fell in love with the city, eventually carving a self-made career out of digital media design and development. He founded The Shanghai Kid food blog in 2013, and opened an award-winning Singaporean restaurant in 2014, which won CityWeekend’s Outstanding Southeast Asian restaurant of the year in 2016.
In 2017, he decided to reboot, and shut down all his businesses in Shanghai before moving back to Singapore with his wife.
Fred plans to immigrate to Melbourne in the near future.
