Wan Hao Chinese New Year Feast
This Lunar New Year, ring in the Year of the Monkey with Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel's newly appointed Executive Chinese Chef Brian Wong Shiuh Yean of its award-winning Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant. Trained in the rich and intricate art of Chinese cooking and driven by a zealous passion for exquisite culinary creations, Brian has acquired more than 15 years of culinary expertise from his tenure at notable restaurants in Singapore, Malaysia and Italy. 

Brian started his career in year 2000 as a Kitchen Assistant and with unbridled drive, he rose quickly to become the Executive Chef of Ruyi Chinese Restaurant in Rome, in 2006. His most recent stint was at Scholar Chinese Restaurant, NUSS Club in Singapore as Sous Chef. 

The 32 year-old has garnered gold medals for prestigious awards including “Taiwan World Culinary Competition 2014”, “Lee Kum Kee International Young Chef Competition 2014”, “FHA Kuala Lumpur Malaysia Chinese Chef Competition 2013”, “Hong Kong Ming Huo International Chinese Chef Competition 2012”, to name a few.

Brian believes in playing up the strengths of Asian culinary traditions while harmoniously introducing new ingredients and produce into his dishes. Without compromising on quality when it comes to the cuisine he presents, he continuously explores the interplay of taste, texture, imagination and presentation, balanced with a multitude of cooking techniques. He pushes the culinary boundary by challenging the conventional approach to Cantonese cuisine through his imagination, creating distinctive dishes while retaining the essence of traditional Chinese cooking. 

“I believe in introducing dishes that relates to a diversity of palates, rather than a recipe that is one-dimensional. I enjoy creating lasting impressions where plates are transformed into edible canvases bursting with exquisite tastes and flavours. It is important to bring out the flavour of each ingredient and let it shine through. And at the same time, presentations and serving temperatures are also critical elements that contribute to guests’ gastronomic experience,” said Brian. “With the team at Wan Hao, we will strive to breathe new life into this award-winning restaurant’s dishes through their flavours and presentation and to contribute to the food and beverage scene in Singapore,” he added.
