Kylie Javier Ashton, Momofuku Seiobo, Sydney
Manager. Wine enthusiast. Professional waiter. Amateur boxer. Kylie Javier Ashton brings a singular skill set to her work, which seems all the more apt considering the idiosyncrasy of the fine-diner she runs. It’s a tribute to the experience she gained working at the high-flying likes of Tetsuya’s and Bentley that through the transition from the Noma-inflected style of the restaurant under original chef Ben Greeno to the haute-Caribbean flavours of Paul Carmichael, a winning sense of continuity kept Momofuku on the up and up.
IN SHORT Floating like a butterfly, stinging like a bee.
