Established in 2018, Chilli Manis is one of the latest additions to Neo Group’s growing stable of catering brands and marks the Group’s first foray into cuisine specific catering.
Helmed by Madam Serene Hoh who is a seasoned veteran with more than 36 years of culinary experience under her belt, Chilli Manis is dedicated to serve a fusion of rich and delicate flavours to each event, yet retaining its authentic Peranakan heritage.
Madam Hoh’s passion for the Peranakan cuisine was first inspired in a culinary class by Madam Chua Jim Neo, a doyenne in the fare. Since embarking on the pursuit to perfect each Peranakan dish, she has spent countless hours in the kitchen, reinventing flavors, examining textures and fine-tuning visuals – all for the purpose of retaining the signature tastes of Peranakan food yet incorporating her unique touches into the recipes.
The brand, Chilli Manis means “sweet chilli” in Bahasa Indonesia and seeks to showcase the best of the cuisine’s dishes that have amalgamated signature flavors across Chinese, Malay and Indonesian fares.
