The perseverance of Old school dishes

Now, Thomas, the second generation has continued the family trade and expanding restaurant operation for online ordering making it easy to order your favourite Chinese cuisines and enjoying at the comfort of your home, sharing “he values how important customer feedback is to their trade”.
Ongoing into F&B
As his father worked as a chef, Thomas grew up watching him cook and decided to give F&B a shot He says, “F&B is in my blood. When I started, I told my friends that I’m not selling the food; I’m selling the culture. I wanted to preserve the taste of comfort food.”
Thomas is serious about learning the ropes from his father. “I didn’t want to take a high risk to join F&B. I’ve not done it before and I lack experience in this line,” he says.
He explains, “Our concept is very simple. We sell good food, quality ingredients. We provide a wide range of tasty menus that is at a reasonable price.”
Ingredients source fresh daily
Thomas is happy to share more about his food with his customers, should they ask. “Before I joined F&B I was very shy. Now I can talk,” he laughs.
A lot of the ingredients we use are source fresh daily. “We understand how fresh ingredients make all the difference in taste,” he says, and we work together with our suppliers and staffs to ensure food quality.
From our Covid experience, we know how difficult it has been for customers and F&B. Taking the initiative to improve their eCommerce has made ordering easy for customers and bringing more orders for the restaurant.
