LOW YEUN KUNG
Restaurant: Tin Gow Best sellers: Seafood Bean Curd, Kway Teaw, Sweet and Sour Pork
Profile: Low Yeun Kung is a shy man who would rather stay away from the limelight, but he is undeniably one of the biggest stars in the culinary scene of Cebu. It is because of him that Tin Gow, Waterfront Hotel Cebu’s Chinese restaurant, has consistently managed to be one of the city’s best dining places since it began its operations in 1999.
His dishes have been known to attract people outside of Cebu, and in fact, it is said that there is a customer who regularly visits Cebu all the way from Singapore because of Low’s Seafood Bean Curd, one of his many specialties. Coming from a ChineseMalaysian family of chefs, and having worked all over Asia since he was 16, Low now calls the Queen City of the South his second home, and luckily for us, he has no plans of showcasing his kitchen expertise anywhere else.
