Executive Chinese Chef Tam Kan Tong

Chef Tam Kan Tong entered the professional culinary world when he was 15 years old. In the past 43 years, he has worked in Singapore, Seoul, Macau and other destinations in Asia to please diners. One of his specialities is to host large-scale events, often at state banquet level with 500 to 1,000 guests. The most remarkable event of his career was the 10th annual reunion celebration of Macau and People’s Republic of China with Hu Jintao, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, as the guest of honour. Chef Tam has a base of celebrity fans including Lee Kuan Yew, former Prime Minister of Singapore and Jackie Chan, Hollywood movie star.


“Density” is Chef Tam’s philosophy for authentic Cantonese cuisine. It not only has to deliver a condensed flavour of natural ingredients but also must be prepared with the perfect cooking heat. With his seasoned skills and passion for culinary arts, Chef Tam creates breathtaking dishes that go beyond the imagination.
