My China Story – Emma Chen introduces authentic Chinese food to South Africans
“For me, food always represent family interaction, passing down of culture, passing down of customs,” said Emma Chen.
Emma Chen is a restaurant owner in Johannesburg, South Africa. Emma came to South Africa to study in the 1980s, and has made South Africa her home.
Her cuisine comes from Northern China. She has two restaurants, one called the Red Chamber, in Hyde Park, and the other Pron, a noodle bar in Linden. Both are very popular with customers here.
