TUNG NAM LOU

Lo Chi Ching is the founder of Tung Nam Lou and his vision has always been to encourage art as the medium to strengthen interactions among people. As an entrepreneur from Puning, he came to Hong Kong in the 1930s to build his culinary business and set up Tung Nam Lau Restaurant in the year of 1950. Improving public and social welfare, education and promoting art were his visionary goals but he also offered help to his hometown, Puning. To fully embrace Lo’s vision, Tung Nam Lau Restaurant has been given a new life in the form of Tung Nam Lou—a place where art and cultural interactions are not limited by any restrictions, bringing people closer together.
