Bossier’s Restaurant Best Friend and Wine Pairing Pioneer Passes Away
When I First Moved to Shreveport-Bossier I felt Like I Was the One to Discover Lucky Palace.
My brother who is a chef and lover of wines had heard of a man named Kuan Lim. Mr. Lim wasn't your typical restaurateur, he was a wine whisperer, who could perfectly pair any dish on his menu with the perfect wine. Of course, this meant that my brother who is a very successful restaurateur had to meet this man for himself.
Yes, we were making our way to a hidden gem to get some of the best Chinese food and check out the biggest wine selection in town that was intricately picked out by Mr. Lim.
It Was Not Long Before I Realized That Mr.Lim Was Everyone's Best Friend.
Kaun Lim treated everyone who walked into his restaurant as if they were his guests of honor. He made you feel like somebody important and was always eager to share his love of wine with anyone who wanted to expand their tastebuds.
Holly Lim Who Runs Lucky Palace Took to Facebook to Share the Devastating News that Kuan Lim Passed Away.
Her Facebook post said:
"Dear Family and Friends of my Kuan Lim, my best friend, and Lucky Palace work husband, It’s with a heavy heart to let you know that Lim passed peacefully Tuesday, October 4th at home surrounded by loving family and he is now with our Lord and Savior.
