CHEF RIO NEO
Chef Rio's philosophy is simple - "Cook from the heart, enjoy the process, and your guests will feel it." His culinary journey began in his parents' humble economic bee hoon stall at the hawker centre, leading him to the kitchens of Fat Cow and Kinki Restaurant & Bar. Now, as the head chef at Kabuke and TANOKE, Chef Rio combines traditional Japanese techniques with modern flavours to create a fresh repertoire of contemporary Japanese cuisine.
With a deep respect and appreciation for Japanese cuisine, Chef Rio was a finalist at Japan's World Washoku Challenge in 2015 and 2016. At Kabuke and TANOKE, he pushes the boundaries of traditional washoku by designing a menu that's adventurous, playful, and packed with umami - the ultimate marriage between food and sake.
