About Chef Vindex Tengker
Having grown up in a family of diverse backgrounds, Chef Vindex is always proud to showcase this trait in his culinary exploration of local food. His mother is from Ambon, Maluku, while his father is Manadonese.
Thanks to his gifted and adoring Oma (grandmother), Chef Vindex was accustomed to great Indonesian cooking while growing up. Not only did he get to enjoy her food, but he also had fun getting involved in the process of creating it. This family background helped form Chef Vindex’s culinary talent as well as his love for it.
To this day, Chef Vindex is always improving and exploring his abilities in serving Asian, European, Mediterranean, and North American cuisine, as well as his specialties: Asian fusion and modern Indonesian fare. He does that by piling up on experiences, which starts from studying Hotel Management at Akademi Perhotelan Jakarta.
From there, he then went on to become chefs at highly regarded places in Indonesia like Amandari Hotel, Four Seasons, Dharmawangsa, and Garuda Indonesia.
Chef Vindex has been traveling around the world to promote Indonesian cuisine. He also has the experience of working overseas to spread excellent Indonesian cuisine to people around the world. Two of the cities he worked at were Mallorca, Spain, and Los Angeles, United States.
One of the most memorable moments in his career happened when he got grounded by his Executive Chef for not making a consistently good taste of his Rawon soup every day as well as one of his VIP client, an Austrian couple who did complain about his dishes. This incident really makes Chef Vindex push himself hard to improve and learn to make the best every day he could as if it is the last time he could serve those dishes.
All these great experiences of him will be well presented on guest’s own table. The rich selection of Balinese, Manadonese, Javanese, and Sumatranese flavours in Chef Vindex’s dishes will surely cure any longing for authentic home-cooked meals.
