Chef Yew Eng Tong’s Homecoming Joins Alma by Juan Amador – The Straits Times

“Brave is the chef who spurns a cushy job overseas to come back and deal with all the problems that plague Singapore restaurants. You know what they are: manpower crunch, rental woes, the high cost of ingredients.

Brave is chef Yew Eng Tong, back on home turf after four years in Hong Kong. The 45-year-old is now the executive chef and general manager of one-Michelin-starred Alma by Juan Amador and has already put his stamp on the menu. The food is modern European, with Asian accents and lots of fruit and vegetables. Tasting menus are priced at $198++ for six courses and $248++ for eight courses. 

The chef is used to cooking under pressure – he has represented Singapore in many culinary competitions, including the Culinary Olympics. He led the Singapore National Culinary Team in that competition in Germany in 2014 and it took the top spot. He has also represented Singapore at the Bocuse d’Or from 2013 to 2017, notably coming in tops in the Asian selection part of the competition in Shanghai in 2012.”
