Chief Executive Chef PeleChef Pele has 14 years of experience in the FnB industry. He started at the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur, and since then have worked at Renaissance Hotel, JW Marriott, Brussels and BLVD to name the more prominent ones. His culinary philosophy could be summed up as “Everyday comfort foods that are affordable.”
Head ChefAt first glance, his approach to foods are instinctive and creative. For one, they are all visually appealing, with lots of bright colours, all artfully arranged with spices and condiments that enhance the flavour of the dish. From the mouth-watering Egg Benedict to the colourful Salmon Yaki Salad, everything was a blend of good taste and subtle playfulness.

Egg BenedictEgg with muffin, turkey ham and sautéed mushroom. It was literally mouth-watering, with the awesome hollandaise sauce oozing from the perfectly poached eggs sitting on a bed of sautéed mushrooms and the ensemble crowned with Ebiko, or Flying Fish Roe. This was the perfect starter, and was a but a prelude for the many wonderful things that were to follow.
Salmon Yaki SaladTeriyaki salmon, radish slice and half-boiled eggs. The salmon was flaky, juicy and delicious. It went really well with the salad and eggs, with the lime adding a zesty freshness to the salmon.
Char-Grilled SquidThe char-grilled squid had a nice chewy texture that was not stringy, with the stirred in salsa giving it some nice colours and the green lime adding a nice contrasting sourish taste.
Vietnamese Beef NoodleWhen it comes to simple comfort food on a cold evening after work, a bowl of piping hot pho serves the same role as Chicken Soup for the Soul. The noodles were chewy, the broth was savory and the tender slices of beef and meatballs were tender.
Salmon en PapilloteThis was a very interesting dish and quickly became a favourite! The salmon was extra juicy, with the flavours and texture perfectly intact due to it being baked in an oven inside it’s wrap of baking paper. Sitting on a bed of vegetables, Beurre blanc or French White Butter is then poured over the ensemble to give it a wonderful savory taste and aroma. For the discerning diner, Beurre Blanc is a hot emulsified butter sauce made with white wine and or reduced vinegar, into which butter is blended in. The resultant creamy sauce is a classic and often served with fish.
Trio of MantouThis wonderful ensemble consists of the deep fried Mantou or chinese bun served like hamburgers, and comes with three different kinds of stuffings, hence the name. They are Smoked Duck w/ mango salsa & balsamic vinegar, Smoke Salmon & olive with Lemon Creme Fraiche and finally Turkey Ham with grilled pineapple & honey mustard sauce.
Ebiko Fried RiceWhilst it might be odd to espouse the virtues of fried rice, being asian, Chef Pele’s Ebiko Fried Rice was nothing short of amazing! Not only was the fried rice savory, but the prawns in sambal that came along with it was simply to die for! Comfort food cannot get any better than this dynamic combo, and the generous topping of Flying Fish Roe crowning the fried rice was a nice touch.
Chicken QuesadillaThis succulent delight was mixed with a nice topping of creamy cheese, and is a great finger foods with the kids.
Oreo Cheese CakeThis was just too sinful but too good to ignore. A slab of cheese cake sits atop a bed of crushed oreo crust and is crowned with a jelly. A sweet strawberry cut into the shape of a flower accompanied this treat, and the chocolate syrup completed this ensemble perfectly.
