Selection by Du: Re-evolution of the “Amazing Chinese Cuisine”

In March this year, I paid my first visit to Selection by Du, the flagship of “Amazing Chinese Cuisine” located on the Bund. It reminded me of my last conversation with Mr. Du four years ago.

Since its opening in 2020, Hansik Goo has been crowned a Michelin star.
