Dewakan: From University Experiment To 2 Starred Michelin Restaurant

In November, local upscale restaurant Dewakan picked up a second Michelin Star at the second edition of the Michelin Guide Kuala Lumpur and Penang, making it the first two-Michelin starred restaurant in Malaysia. An honour that has backed up the establishment's name that translates to ‘food from god’.

On this episode of Open for Business, you will learn what turned an educational entrepreneurial effort at a local college into this two starred Michelin restaurant, what it takes to survive and strive in the highly competitive culinary scene, and whether the restaurant business makes business sense, with Chef Darren Teoh, founder and head chef of Dewakan.
