JASON CHEW, 32, OWNER OF HEMISPHERE@REGALIA COMES FROM A POOR FAMILY IN KEPONG AND SIMPLY WORKED HIS WAY UP! AFTER 6 YEARS AT BRITISH AMERICAN TOBACCO HE SAVED ENOUGH TO OPEN HEMISPHERE,A FINE DINING WESTERN RESTAURANT!
"I was taught by Mum how to cook since 10 so no chefs can blackmail me!" he laughs. Jason Chew is big, hale and hearty but is quite shy initially as he is not the pushy, keehuachee-type. "I go to the markets daily to pick the best cuts and freshest vegetables and am here almost every night in the kitchen. This is my first and only restaurant and as a one-man show, I am determined to ensure Hemisphere is a success as I put my entire life savings into this venture. This is my dream as I have always wanted to run a quality, high end restaurant."
The chef is French too as Jason Chew is adamant authenticity is paramount since many residents in Regalia are executives and westerners used to fine food. The meal was excellent but this menu is being changed so you have until Chinese New Year to enjoy what I did before the new menu is introduced.
The airconditioned main dining hall seats 90 while the al fresco outdoor terrace can accommodate another 50. Fans cool the ambiance outside which affords magnificent, sweeping views of Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower plus everything in between.
I have reserved a table here for 31 December 2017 as Pel Loh said from this vantage point I could see 4 fireworks going off simultaneously!
