Owner's description

Ling Chiu and Daniel Liu. Daniel stems from a long line of restaurateurs and Ling has a knack for cooking and design (she’s an architect by trade) as well as an innate understanding of flavour (they both LOVE food).

They’ve spent every holiday over the last few years travelling and tasting the world – their most memorable trip being across the peninsula of Southeast Asia: a 35-day food marathon that inspired them to start experimenting in the kitchen when they returned home. Then lockdown hit.

Ling took the opportunity to start a food blog on Instagram, documenting her food journey. Soon friends began to beg her to make the food for them. She asked them to bring 2L ice-cream tubs that she would fill up and freeze – a lunchbox of sorts. “Obento” is the Japanese word for lunchbox. Daniel’s mother (a restaurateur and chef) got involved making dim sum and ramen noodles and sold their frozen meals online before they took their concept to The Fourways Farmers market to test it out. Needless to say their food was a knock-out.

    Paying R280 for a bowl of broth and noodles is excessive and unjustifiable. Everything is VERY expensive. You get charged R15 per person whether you want the “palate cleanser” and a jug of room temp water (tap), or not. Both dishes we wanted we couldn’t have because items were out of stock. Something else was recommended in place of those which we accepted and were charged heavily for. Conveniently for them. But we should have only been charged for the dishes we actually wanted. No salt, pepper or soy sauce is provided in case you feel like some extra seasoning. The meal was 6/10 but I won’t return. I felt financially abused.
