Fook Lam Moon (Traditional Chinese: 福臨門) is a Chinese restaurant chain with its main and original branch at 35-45 Johnston Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong. Fook Lam Moon means "fortune and blessings come to your home." The restaurant is often dubbed the Cafeteria for the Wealthy (Traditional Chinese: 富豪飯堂) by the media, and is frequented by the rich and famous, most notably Joseph Lau Luen Hung, Chairman and CEO of Chinese Estates Holdings.
The restaurant was known as Fook Kee before changing the name to Fook Lam Moon in 1953. Hall dining was first introduced in the 1970s at the Lockhart Road premises and in 1989 the restaurant was expanded and relocated to Johnston Road at Wanchai.
Mr. Chui Fook's son Chui Wai Kwan became his father's apprentice at the age of 14 in 1962. Since then Chui Wai Kwan has maintained his late father's principles of fine Cantonese cuisine by becoming the head chef, while his elder brother, Chui Pui Kun (Chairman), took care of the business' commercial and accounting side.
The restaurant's signature dishes are braised Japanese dried aged abalone (or Bao yu) with goose web, fried crispy chicken, roast suckling pig, baked stuffed crab meat and onion in shell and a variety of double-boiled soups.
Fook Lam Moon operates nine branches in Asia. These include the original restaurant Wanchai, in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, four in Japan (Osaka, Nagoya, Ginza and Marunouchi), and three in China (Shanghai, Shenzhen and Beijing).
The Wanchai and Tsim Sha Tsui branches of the restaurant were awarded two and one stars, respectively by the 2010 Michelin Guide, following the one star rating in the guide's inaugural 2009 Hong Kong and Macau edition.
