Head Chef of Tatsu Japanese Cuisine
Chef Tommy Kuan Soon Seng
Chef Tommy Kuan Soon Seng joined InterContinental Kuala Lumpur in 2015. With a combined culinary experience that spanned across 2 decades, his appointment as the Head Chef of Tatsu Japanese Cuisine is inevitable.
Inspired by his brother, Chef Tommy first got his footing in the culinary world when he took up an apprenticeship with a Chinese Restaurant. With a burning passion, he found his true calling when he joined Nadaman Japanese Restaurant as a trainee cook and expanded his learning by moving on to Iketeru Japanese Restaurant at Hilton Kuala Lumpur in 2006. Through sheer hard work and dedication, Chef Tommy climbed up the ladders and became a sushi chef at Benkay Japanese Restaurant of Nikko Hotel Kuala Lumpur in 2008. Not before long, he was then appointed as the Head Chef of Tatsu Japanese Cuisine in InterContinental Kuala Lumpur in 2015.
To master the art of Japanese cuisine, one must be precise and meticulous, Chef Tommy devoted himself to doing just that, by mastering his knife skills and preparation methods of various fish species. “To become a good chef, I always believe that it takes lifelong learning no matter if you are the head chef or a commis. I like to be hands-on and my favourite place to be is in the kitchen. I want to do this for as long as I am able to,” he says. Apart from being strong-willed, Chef Tommy is also ingeniously creative for he is able to use various seasonal catches and ingredients to invoke both bold and subtle flavours into his art.
With Chef Tommy now at the helm of Tatsu Japanese Cuisine, diners can expect a distinctive selection of authentic Japanese cuisine with seasonal produce ranging from the finest wagyu beef to fresh catches being flown in twice weekly from Japan.
