CHEF RICKY THEIN
Tai Zi Heen
No votes yet

Hot and brand new at Tai Zi Heen is Chef de Cuisine Ricky Thein Yiew, who comes from a family deeply involved in the hospitality industry. With almost 20 years of experience in modern Cantonese and Asian cuisine, working in Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan and Thailand, Chef Ricky cites his family—including his cousin, Master Chef Bong Jun Choi—as well as masters from Hong Kong as his influences. “Food is one of life’s greatest pleasures,” says Chef Ricky. For him, food is art as well as nourishment: “People must know how to enjoy their food, and not just eat to fill their stomachs! I love eating well, and I love presenting food well.”
