One of Asia’s most internationally-celebrated chefs, Justin Quek is famed for his expertise in French fine dining and his deep understanding of Asian cuisines. His Franco-Asian cuisine – borne of his Asian heritage and his extensive experience in Europe – is represented by signature dishes such as his foie gras xiao long bao, and lobster Hokkien noodles. As a leading chef from Asia, he has served numerous politicians and dignitaries such as former Chinese president Jiang Zemin and Microsoft founder Bill Gates. He also famously cooked for all of Singapore’s founding prime minister Lee Kuan Yew’s birthday dinners since 1993.
Think dishes such as Singapore-style breakfast options of soft-boiled barn laid eggs with superior soy sauce, paired with kopi peng concocted using Vittoria coffee; an umami-packed prawn noodle soup, made with live crustaceans; or Chef Quek’s signature mee siam.
