The Chef & the Brigade


“初 INITIAL is an expression of my own culinary aspirations. After years of working and travelling overseas, I decided to return to my roots in Johor Bahru, to bring the beautiful local Malaysian produce into play by showcasing it in a refined way with a touch of European and Japanese flair.”



“Located in the centre of Johor Bahru, 初 Initial is a farm-to-table restaurant serving modern European cuisine with a Japanese twist.”

Kim, the discoverer.
