deep rooted love for food started from an early age by being
inspired by my Mum’s Malaysian cooking at home, then hosting
my own dinner parties. And I got so much inspiration and joy
from these, I realised that it could become my profession too.
I started working in various kitchens across Glasgow, then moved on to doing street food events where there’s still that social, more interactive element I was lucky to work with some of the best female head chefs in Glasgow who have influenced my entire journey. I opened my first restaurant in 2017 and my latest adventure Gaga, has been thriving since its doors opened at the end of 2021.
Part of being brave and part of being adventurous is trying new things. And for me, food can open doors and open up conversations you’ve never had before.
“You look for a feeling when you drink something. Food can open up doors and open up conversations you’ve never had before. The most adventurous things is to try and have the fullest, longest life with loads of amazing people around you. For me there is true adventure in that.”
