Introducing another super-qualified, super-friendly, super Foodie! This week, our new Makan Kaki is a French pâtissier by training and was the creative force behind popular bakery chain, Bakerzin.
Chef Daniel Tay is an established F&B entrepreneur with three creative concepts under his belt – Foodgnostic, a state-of-the-art food solutions company; catandthefiddle.com, a cheesecake specialist; and oldsengchoong.com, a revival of his parents’ old confectionery, specialising in traditional treats such as Chinese yam cake, rum balls and apple pie.
Here’s what Chef Daniel Tay is all about – simple, honest, natural flavours and food that is cooked well, no gimmicks, no fanciful adornments. He’s not into big name brands or molecular gastronomy, but isn’t opposed to trying new things, but ultimately, he still comes back to basic, tasty, simply prepared food.

Today, Chef Daniel tantalises us with his favourite Japanese restaurant – a place he always heads to when he’s in need of a pick-me-up. His friend, down-to-earth Sushi Chef Edwin, is a local with some serious Japanese knife skills. When we talk about sushi, the most basic given is that the fish is exquisite, super-fresh, deep in flavour yet clean tasting. You’ll get all that at YOYOGI SUSHI SAKE BAR!
Chef Daniel adores their lunch specials, because not only are they great value for money, but of course, the food is tasty and the service is good. He recommends you order, over everything else on the menu, the Bara Chirashi. It’s beautifully prepared & presented in a gorgeous bowl, a true colourful feast for the eyes and your tastebuds! Delicious morsels of seafood sashimi layered over perfect seasoned rice – so simple, so delicious, so comforting! You’ve got to try it!
