Students who enjoyed food from Hong's included: Aryan Abazari, Cheng He, Hongdi Zhang, Jiajie Li, Jingjie Zhang, Kimie Shiozawa, Lingfeng Song, Yixuan Jiang, Yutong Lei, Jiaming Huang, Jianhao Chen, Jiawei Li, Shun Liu, Zhengzheng Wang, Bruno Marques, Jud Fom, Mengjun Chen, Roseline Kanssole, Saira Bano, Salman Hassan, Jianglong Huang, Shuyu Wang, Yuan Song, and Peiyue Shen.
