Whilst a wait staff taking our food orders, Chef & B Louis Poh Yu-Ming came over for a chat and recommended us a few dishes in his menu. Combination of fresh ingredients and zen-like presentation are the keys to his signature dishes. So we tasted Pumpkin sautéed with Szechwan peppercorn and sprinkled with French sea salt.
After our meal, we have a chance to get to know Chef Louis who is also in charge for service as well, over a cup of fresh coffee.
“This resort is my second work place in Thailand as a chef, where the first was a luxury resort in Hua Hin”. To tell you the truth, Louis is friendly and humorous, open-minded and yet cheeky in cooking his food style. He cheekily loves to have fun cooking his food using ingredients that able to touch my many palates in all senses. “Passion, love for food and versatile are among fundamental qualities that most chefs should have to be successful” and we totally agreed with every words he mentioned. He relaxes in the evening and ensures a good 7 hours of sleeps to re-charge for another next new day to come; telling us “generally, I am not into drinks but loves it in cooking”. It sounds unbelievable but true!
“My experience comes from working at the grassroots level to management which was indeed an arduous voyage” he smiled – I knew that he is happy with his career no matter how hard it is because he already put his effort into it!
