Family is at the heart of everything Chef Seow Tzi Qin, or "Chef TQ", does. He strongly believes that for family, you will always strive to be reliable, consistent and to do your best, no matter the circumstances. He brings that philosophy to the kitchen and believes that you will be the best version of yourself if you treat your kitchen staff, front of house and customers as your family.
That sense of reliability, consistency and doing one’s best has followed him through the myriad of cuisines he has experienced in his career, be it fiery woks and double boiled soups at Tung Lok Classics, tandoori and masala indian thali at Singapore Airlines, French entrees at the highly acclaimed Le Saint Julien and Les Amis, intense Spanish flavours at La Taperia, Asian-European fusion as he helmed the kitchen at 1919 Waterboat House.
Chef Seow Tzi Qin now heads up and manages the five restaurants in the Brewerkz family as the Group Executive Chef, including opening the newest Brewerkz One Fullerton in a style all his own. He has brought his signature Asian-European style with imagination and creativity, while keeping his food honest and not pretentious, transforming Brewerkz’s traditionally American bar food menu with delightful effect.
When asked what motivates him to serve the best food to Brewerkz customers everyday, we were somehow not surprised when Chef TQ quoted Aristotle: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”.
