Chef felix tai


Executive Chef Felix Tai was born and raised in Malaysia. His passion for flavors was learned at his mother’s knee. “She always told me 'Cooking is love', and even more importantly, she showed me what love tastes like. It’s hard to describe, but you know it when you taste it. It's comforting, yet unique. Food is culture, food is tradition, and food is love, this is when I found passion in creating flavors and cooking. It was a generational ritual that my mother had left me that I now share with the world.
