Very sad news for the Spanish restaurant scene!

      Most reports are saying that, while the exact cause of death is still unknown, it was likely a heart attack and not related to air travel.

        The El PaĆ­s article says he died in his restaurant in Singapore:

          What a shocker :-(
          I don't know what's going to happen to his Singapore venture now - it was a nice restaurant, situated right next to Guy Savoy's and 2 doors away from Tetsuya Wakuda's Waku Ghin.

          I was at Can Fabes a few years & simply loved his cooking. Still have his cookbook with his personalized message & signature. Sad :-(
