Kwoklyn Wan


British born half Chinese, half English food fanatic! In his own words, Kwoklyn is totally in love and completely fascinated by food.

This third generation Chinese Restauranteur trained as a Chinese chef at a very early age. His Grandfather Wan opened the first Chinese Restaurant in Leicester back in 1962, and then Poppa Wan opened the first Cantonese Restaurant in Leicester in 1978 and now Kwoklyn has his own ‘Wantons’ – a Hong Kong street food cafe and beer bar in Leicester which is in the same premises that once housed his parents’ first restaurant, The Panda – and where he first worked in a kitchen.

Kwoklyn regularly contributes food related articles to magazines and newspapers as well as interviews and features in publications, nationwide. In February, you may have seen him cooking live on ‘This Morning’ with Phil and Holly. He’s currently filming as a presenter for a BBC documentary set to air in September and also filming for his ‘Kwok On’ online cookery programme.

Away from the stove, Kwoklyn is also known worldwide as a Martial Arts expert
