Meet the Chef
Leading the culinary charge at Quiero Más is notable Cuisineer and Chef extraordinaire – Alex Fargas. With an early career in his native Spain at the famed El Bulli hotel’s 2 Michelin-star “La Alquiera” under the mentorship of superstar-chef Ferran Adria, Chef Fargas moved from strength to strength pioneering innovative and creative Spanish cuisine at each opportunity – first in Beijing’s 1 Michelin-star “Mare Nordstrum” and then to the Jumeriah’s “Pisces” in Dubai – sharpening his skills and honing his culinary dexterity at every venue.
Arriving in Hong Kong over a decade ago, Chef Fargas has been enticing home audiences with his own twist on contemporary Spanish creations, first holding the helm at “Fofo” by the El Willy Group and then leading the team at “La Paloma” in Sai Ying Pun as the Chef-owner.
At Quiero Más, Chef Fargas expands on the Spanish gastronomic base to innovate a new level in ‘Mod-Med’ cuisine, melding as well, the renowned tastes of the regions of Spain, Southern France, Italy, Greece and perhaps even a hint of North Africa to scintillate Hong Kong’s culinary curiosity with original, fresh, exciting, and delicious dining experiences.
