Shangri-La Jakarta introduces Chef Yeow Wei Ho, who will lead the Dim Sum culinary team at JIA.


In his new role, Chef Ho is responsible for developing creative Dim Sum and dessert menus, along with bringing innovative takes on the much-loved Chinese dishes. Having grew up in Malaysia, Chef Ho’s passion for cooking stemmed from his love of the culture and food, particularly in the art of Dim Sum making. Chef Ho started his culinary journey in Singapore before moving to Indonesia in 2007. His 17-year-long culinary journey has now brought him to Shangri-La Jakarta.

Chef Ho presents his fresh take on Dim Sum by incorporating contemporary twists within his dishes, while remaining respectful of its tradition. His dedication to the craft of Dim Sum making is coupled with his deep understanding of the Indonesian palate, having worked in restaurants and hotels in Indonesia for 15 years. Diners can indulge in Chef Ho’s signature creations for lunch and dinner at JIA such as Steamed Fish Dumplings with Shrimp and Black Truffles, Baked Bird Puff Pastry with Lotus Paste, Steamed Chicken Dumplings with Black Pepper, Fried Swan Taro Puffs, Edamame Bun and Chilled Orange Pudding with Ice Cream.

Inspired by his journey, Chef Ho is keen to share his knowledge and skills with his team, to impress discerning palates with dishes that are both tasteful and pleasing to the eye. “I am looking forward to bringing my own take on Dim Sum making and working with JIA’s group of motivated chefs to provide our guests with an enjoyable dining
experience,” said Chef Ho.
