Gwai Lohs (which means "foreigners" in Cantonese) held its soft
opening on September 21.
Billed as "the newest restaurant in town," the eatery situated opposite
the Hotel Inter-Continental (see map) offers "food that gwai lohs have enjoyed
all over the world, dishes ranging from the curries of India, the roasts of Olde
England and the spicy dishes of South East Asia."
Chef Patron Nick Medhurst says the restaurant will offer a different menu everyday
and that he makes his own hams and tongue dishes. The establishment is owned by Paul
and Gene Cable, who also operate the Cat House.
History buffs will recall that, under different management, the newly-renovated Gwai
Lohs used to be called Tutti Frutti and before that was the site of the Oasis, famed
for its fondue dishes, not to mention the site of the now-defunct Mosbar factory.
Gwai Lohs is set up to handle outside catering and private parties and, according
to Medhurst, "anything to do with great food."
