Chow Ngan Ping

Chow Ngan Ping is the Executive Chef of Mandarin Oriental Wangfujing, Beijing overseeing the culinary production and quality across its outlets of Café Zi, Mandarin Grill and MO Bar.

Widely-travelled Chef Ping has worked for premium hotels and restaurants across the globe. He has been working for Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group for fifteen years, his previous experiences include Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong and Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo. Before joining Mandarin Oriental Wangfujing, Beijing, Chef Ping held the Executive Sous Chef position at Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo where he led the hotel’s one Michelin starred experimental Tapas Molecular Bar for more than seven years, since 2014, and had been creating unconventional surprises for diners from all over the world with his passion, dedication, and creativity.

Hong Kong-born Chef Ping honed his skills in Switzerland, and during his time travelling around Europe was impressed by the diversity of Western cuisine. His cooking style was also hugely influenced by his time at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, since joining in 2005. The innovative cooking methods at the hotel vastly expanded his thinking and expertise, which directly resulted in him mastering molecular gastronomy techniques.

The outgoing, vastly experienced chef is keen on outdoor sports and new adventures, which also represents his character, which is boundary-pushing and self-challenging. His easy-going personality, strong affinity and natural interaction with others will enable him to make menu recommendations to diners, and explain the philosophy behind his sophisticated food.
