That new place in town

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."
