The Chef & the Brigade


“Years of crazy adventures have led us to this delicious point, and gēn 根 is born. It represents a fresh start to me, also serves as a reminder that nature is all around us. I am delighted for being a Malaysian chef, able to discover our beautiful local produces, flavours and cultures.”

We Care


At Gēn 根, it is very important for us to understand each and the ingredients and the communities that they are sourced from.

For our produce, we use local farmers who maintain sustainable practices and actively care for the health of their land and livestock. We support farm-to-table buying and avoid the use of processed foods and chemicals. We source all our ingredients locally and actively support small local farmers rather than large corporations.

We personally visit each farm from where we buy our produce.


We endeavour to understand the real costs of the ingredients and maximise our use for the every part of the produce to achieve minimum waste.

We also use methods such as ferments, pickles and preserves in our menus to create a collaborative network that integrates sustainable food production, processing, distribution, consumption and waste management in order to minimise our environmental footprint.


“gēn 根, which translates as the word “root” in English, is a culinary project run by two young, creative Malaysian chefs who pride themselves in using only seasonal local ingredients. Whilst the island of Penang is known for its street food, gēn 根 brings Malaysian dishes to a new level.”

Kim, the discoverer.
