Chef Wan to open buffet eatery at Plaza Singapura

The 500-seat restaurant in Plaza Singapura will serve a halal buffet of South-east Asian cuisine


Famous Malaysian celebrity chef Redzuawan Ismail, better known as Chef Wan, will open a 500-seat halal buffet restaurant at Plaza Singapura by early November.

Called 1 Market By Chef Wan, the restaurant is a collaboration with Food Junction Holdings, which owns a chain of food courts and Mediterranean restaurant Medzs at Orchard Central.

The 11,000 sq ft food arena will feature South-east Asian cuisine with dishes from Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Indonesia - all made with his recipes.

The 56-year-old tells Life! that the project, his first restaurant venture, has been in the works since last year.
