A Maltese chef who has a flair for cooking exquisite Asian dishes, Joseph was a protégé of an Executive chef when he first started his career. He claims his mentor was an immense influence in his career path and has encouraged him to try new types of cuisine, with new tastes, aromas and spices. This led him to create TemptAsian’s menu and its delicious signature dishes. Inspired by the diverse cultures and cuisines of Asia- from China, Japan, Thailand, India and a touch of Malaysia and Indonesia, the opportunities are endless with regards to flavours. The dishes which have created and are presented on the menu, are craved by repeater guests, who most of the time have their favourite dish, which transports them to a part of the Asian world. Joseph or ‘Chef’, as he is usually called, is very proud of his team and of the success they helped him bring to the restaurant.
