Watch Jamie Oliver speak Cantonese, eat fish balls and deep-fried tofu (VIDEO)

Jamie Oliver has opened ANOTHER restaurant in Hong Kong, a second Jamie’s Italian set for Harbour City this May. 

With Hongkongers falling for his failed but adorable attempt to speak Cantonese the first time he opened a restaurant here, Oliver set out to win more hearts by expanding his local vocabulary even further in his latest video.

He even tastes some of the local street food, sampling fish balls, egg waffles and deep-fried tofu! 

“Visiting Hong Kong was an amazing experience, and it was fantastic to be able to spend time doing what I love most – being in the restaurant amongst the team and really getting to know them,” said Oliver.

Get ready for more pasta, like his Fresh Crab Spaghettini, Squid Ink Spaghetti and Truffle Tagliatelle, as well as decadent desserts like his Epic Brownie and Tiramisù. 

But whatever, Jamie –  just speak Cantonese to us and we’ll eat anything you put in front of us.
