A Taste of Home.
The Chow Kit Kitchen & Bar is the warm heart of our hotel - an open space designed to celebrate the spirit of open houses - where strangers become friends and friends become family over a shared meal. Our dishes, crafted from spoken recipes passed down from generations in Chef Ell's family, celebrate the multiculturalism of Malay cuisine, drawing from the north and south of Malaysia. Our food is simple and delicious, celebrating the honest flavours of locally sourced produce, from local artisanal vendors and the nearby Chow Kit market.
About Chef Ell
Chef Juwahir Mustafa, or Chef Ell, as he is known, has been cooking since he was 17 years old. For the past 21 years Chef Ell has built his career from the ground up through hard work in Malaysia’s most established kitchens before his appointment as Executive Chef of the Ormond Group. Despite having worked across multiple culinary disciplines in big and small kitchens, his one true love has always been cooking comfort Malay food, put together by memories of his grandmother’s and mother’s cooking. Having spent years creating off-menu Malay dishes for his regulars over the years, The Chow Kit Kitchen & Bar is the culmination of his life long passion.
