Syed Asim Hussain 

Founder of Black Sheep Restaurants 

Asim founded Black Sheep Restaurants in 2012, becoming one of the most prolific innovators at the forefront of Hong Kong’s ever-evolving culinary scene. Black Sheep Restaurants curates distinct dining experiences that tell a story about a particular time, place, culture or cuisine. 

In December 2018, Asim became the world’s youngest restaurateur to hold two MICHELIN Stars when BELON and New Punjab Club were honoured with one MICHELIN Star each. Both restaurants retained their MICHELIN Stars in the 2019 announcement. 

In 2020, Black Sheep Restaurants shared its COVID-19 Playbook in support of the hospitality industry devastated by the global pandemic. It has been shared from Argentina to Australia, picked up by businesses and governments beyond the hospitality world, and translated into five languages.
