The unique culinary art of Dim Sum originated with the Cantonese in Southern China. Dim Sum is usually liked with the older tradition of Yum Cha (drink tea) from a relaxing respite to a loud and happy dining experience. Besides that, Yum Cha also treated as a weekend family day. Occasionally, I will bring mum for Dim Sum and to "tan-cha" over the lovely Sunday too ^^
A picture of me and Chef Lo - Chef Lo Tian Sion fondly known as Chef Lo, the Dim Sum Chef of Toh Lee Chinese Restaurant at Hotel Nikko Kuala Lumpur has made his mark in many well-known restaurants and hotels in Kuala Lumpur with his experience in culinary scene for more than 19 years.
With a humble beginning into the culinary world in the year 1989, he start as an apprentice at a small coffee shop in Johor and went on to the Concorde Hotel in Singapore as a Comis I (1991). In 1993 Chef Lo moved to Kuala Lumpur as Chef de Partie of Pan Pacific and Concorde Kuala Lumpur (1994).
Chef Lo in action ^^ Chef Lo joined the Toh Lee Chinese Restaurant, Hotel Nikko Kuala Lumpur in 1995 as an Assistant Dim Sum Chef until year 2000 he was promoted as Dim Sum Chef. During his services with Hotel Nikko Kuala Lumpur, Chef Lo honed his dim sum skills while he was training in few places, Japan, China, Taiwan and Bali, Indonesia.
His responsibilities include overseeing the dessert section of banquet functions and dim sum section of Toh Lee Chinese Restaurant. How lucky I am to get to learn from Chef Lo ^^
