Kim’s Story: Where it all began

IIt all began when Kim was running a modest Chinese restaurant in Richmond when Chinese food supplies were limited. Crispy duck pancakes were constantly short of supplies and without it, you cannot serve ‘crispy duck’ which was and still is the favourite Chinese dish in the UK.

Kim decided to make his own Chinese pancakes but at the time, he was only making Chinese pancakes for his own restaurant and never thought of supplying to others.
Word of mouth got around the Chinese restaurants in the area and soon they all started to buy Chinese pancakes from Kim. At the time, it was all hand made and Kim could not possibly roll out enough Chinese pancakes for himself and others. Which is where the story began, Kim decided to make his own Chinese pancake machine and from then on, he never looked back!
