Globally famed as the “Demon Chef’, Alvin Leung opens his first restaurant in the Middle East at Caesars Palace Dubai
Dubai, 22 March 2022: Asia’s most notorious chef, Alvin Leung makes his big debut in Dubai with the launch of Demon Duck, a new concept restaurant that brings a creative twist to Chinese and Asian Classics. Located at the luxurious Caesars Palace Dubai, Demon Duck joins the resort’s exciting repertoire of world-class dining destinations.
Expect the unexpected at Demon Duck. Known for his creative culinary style, this culinary mastermind delivers a straightforward yet playfully refined approach to much-loved Chinese and Asian dishes with a trendy Hong Kong inspired, speak-easy style bar. Signature highlights include Alvin’s Slow Roasted Peking Duck, reimagined versions of classics like Shrimp On Toast and Black & White Dover Sole, and an inventive sweet twist on a Middle Eastern staple with Aromatic Pineapple Shawarma.
Designed to capture the essence of Hong Kong nightlife, the speak-easy style Bar at Demon Duck features a cocktail menu inspired by famous bars, and the electrifying buzz of the city’s many iconic streets and districts. From leisurely meanderings with Escape to Cheung Sha, bustling vibe of The Mong Kok to living it up with Party in Lan Kawi Fong, the Bar at Demon Duck sets the mood for an easy, casual evening to a sultry, late-night cap.
“Opening Demon Duck, my first restaurant in the Middle East, is a dream come true and truly special, because of how the vision came to life,” says Chef Alvin Leung. “Launching in a new place with someone I trust was very important to me, so what started as friendly conversations during the pandemic with Anthony Costa, Regional President of Caesars Palace Dubai, evolved into an agreement and thereafter, many virtual meetings later, Demon Duck was born – with special thanks to zoom for being our constant angel in this process! For me, it’s always about the simplicity of dishes, the authenticity of flavours, and the goodness of ingredients. When these combine well with a creative, playful spin, you create magic. I believe we have something special here that Dubai will love and am excited to bring you my latest creation!”.
Anthony Costa, Regional President at Caesars Palace Dubai comments, “My vision is to build a dining destination here at Caesars Palace, which caters to a discerning dining community that enjoys good food, great drinks, an excellent vibe and friendly service. I am so delighted to have the opportunity to work with Alvin in bringing this special concept to Dubai that will energize the Asian dining scene with its playful authenticity, creative flair and refreshing simplicity. I am thrilled for Dubai to discover Demon Duck!
Featuring an outdoor garden terrace and a stylishly modern indoor dining space, Demon Duck exudes a chic, sophisticated and trendy air, accented with eccentric, quirky depictions of duck art by Hong Kong based photographer, Mark Chung on the walls to playful graffiti and Middle Eastern inspired mosaic patterns on Monica Tsang designed crockery.
