A Jumbo Floating Restaurant in Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s famous jumbo floating restaurant sank in the South China Sea. This floating restaurant, once a popular tourist attraction in Hong Kong, has sunk after moving away from the city. It was opened in 1976 and is considered to be top notch in Cantonese food. This floating restaurant has been a historic and unique institution in Hong Kong for many years. It also included celebrities like Queen Elizabeth and Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise.

The restaurant has been closed since the COVID 19 pandemic, and has not reopened since. Despite years of efforts to revive this old restaurant, its owners have not been able to find any investors to reopen it. He was eventually removed from Aberdeen Harbor in Hong Kong. Aberdeen Restaurant Enterprise, the company that operates the restaurant, told the media that the cost of running the business is increasing day by day. It was becoming impossible for him to continuously invest money in the restaurant. The company spent millions of dollars each year on maintenance and inspection costs, but did not profit much from the revenue it received.

“We do not think it can resume business in the near future,” the company said in a statement. Let me tell you, this floating restaurant was taken by many boats, a small crowd of locals, who had gathered to bid it farewell. Many onlookers who witnessed his departure said that an era had come to an end. Previously, some local politicians had expressed interest in securing the restaurant with government investment, but this idea was rejected by Hong Kong’s chief executive, Kerry Lam.
