(#wanderlusttips #eastingrandhotelsaigon) In endless efforts to bring and expand the authentic cuisine experience to guests, Eastin Grand Hotel Saigon has appointed William Ong as its new Executive Chef.
Specialized in Modern European and South East cuisine over twelve years of culinary experience culled from his various posts in various hotels and restaurants, he believes in continuously refining the art of cooking through improvisation and experimentation.
Born in Singapore, Chef William started as an apprentice cook at the age of 16. As his creativity began to flourish, he started moving up through the ranks and was last employed at Novotel Bangkok Bangna Hotel as the Director of Food and Beverage cum Executive Chef. Before working in Thailand, he had been working in some other Asian countries: China, Oman and Japan. Chef William imparts the same coaching he has received and mentors the kitchen staff, encouraging them to engage their jobs with a sense of passion and ownership. This is the philosophy he lives upon everywhere he goes.
“Café Saigon – Our main restaurant will feature dishes inspired both by the Mediterranean and South East Asia region alongside a few carefully chosen Vietnamese specialties” said Chef Ong. “We will also feature a selection of prime cuts of meats and seafood cooked over an open flame on our hot stones grill. At the same time, we will have a selection of luscious offerings such as Wagyu beef, foie gras and lobsters. The concept will be ‘elegant yet simple’, focusing on the best possible ingredients and natural, organic keeping flavors.”
