About Kar Yee

Designer by day, home chef by night. Original member of Court Tree Collective. Daughter of a chef. Lives in BK. More about me: I spent the first 6 years of my life in Hong Kong with my sister and Grandfather. On weekends my Grandfather would take us to the busy and vibrant street markets to eat. The variety of smells from the food vendors would fill the streets. The noodles became my favorite. Elbow to elbow, bowl to bowl, perfect strangers became friends. Sharing the love and appreciation for these simple yet intricate dishes. For myself, the noodle symbolizes comfort, my culture and the lasting memories of my time in Hong Kong. It’s a memory that will last with me forever.
