大龍鳳 Dailongfeng (daai6 lung4 fung6) translates to “Gigantic Dragon and Phoenix”, a common name for traditional Chinese restaurants, but also a Cantonese idiom meaning to create a spectacle/ hoax.
This is a weird comic where foodie meets horror. Set up in an imaginary Chinese restaurant run by stars, 8 very different guests gather around the dining table to share cuisine and personal opinion. What happens when different palates clash? Expect table talk, backdoor drama, an uninvited guest, a 5-star cooking demonstration, and tea-spilling action.
Kayla Lui came up with Dailongfeng in Feb 2020, influenced by heavy doses of socio-political news of Hong Kong, a slice of her childhood memories, and a dash of uncertainty towards the future (plus existential thoughts in general). The result is this monster mash of chaotic dialogue and absurd realities with no singular interpretation.
