Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Lot 10 Hutong for a luncheon hosted by Tan Sri Francis Yeoh, Group Managing Director of YTL Corporation Berhad, to showcase a classic “Dai Chao” cooking by one of his favourite chefs, Chef Wong of Wong Wok.

An award winning restaurant chef, his cooking technique is a classic Chinese “Dai Chao” style, where the focus is on meticulous steps taken in each process of cooking and the rendering of dishes that we Malaysian grew up with.

While other six year olds were frolicking outdoors, young Chef Wong was busily engaged in the kitchen. His family discovered he had a natural gift for taste. With a bite and a whiff of Mama Wong’s cooking, he could instinctively decipher which ingredients were used and how much, as well as the style of cooking.

Mama Wong was a much-loved cook in their village. At the tender age of seven, young Chef Wong became Mama Wong’s assistant. His village, Kampung “Ang Moh Bah”, had high hopes that young Chef Wong would bring the Kampung “Ang Mo Bah” flavour to the world.

Misfortune befell upon him when a big fire burnt down Mama Wong’s food court, this tumultuous event spurred young Chef Wong to leave Kampung “Ang Mo Bah” to the city of opportunities, Kuala Lumpur, to realize his dream.

In time, Chef Wong searched out old chefs to apprentice under them in order to learn their cooking technique. As fate would have it, Chef Wong’s passion was recognized in Kuala Lumpur and he joined the YTL Food and Beverage team. With Wong at the helm of Shook!, YTL’s Chinese Kitchen, his signature Dancing Prawn, Sang Har Sang Mee, was birthed.

As his culinary talent came to a zenith, Chef Wong created many new dishes. Cooking from his heart, he continued to yearn for the flavours of his childhood: steamed salted fish minced pork cooked with salted fish from Kampung “Ang Mo Bah”. Today, Chef Wong’s salted fish minced pork is a delight.

Tan Sri Yeoh instinctively realized his talent and his passion. Above all, Tan Sri has belief in Chef Wong and wants to lend him a hand to realize Chef Wong’s dream to bring “Wong Kee” to every corner of the world where there is Chinese.
