Meet Sous-Chef Kadek Singgasana

Kadek has travelled the world as he sailed the seas with several cruise ships for over nine years. The Real Madrid lover has been with us since 2015 and is highly appreciated by the whole team. Find out what motives him and what his challenges are.  

What inspires and motivates you as a chef?
I have a passion for everything culinary. I love the challenge of creating and researching for new menu items. Seeing guests happy and enjoying the food that I have prepared gives me great satisfaction.

Where have you worked before you set anchor at bridges?
After graduating from the Culinary School, I was a trainee in Ritz-Carlton in Jimbaran. After that, I worked on cruise ships from 2005 to 2014 in many different departments, widening my experience. Before joining bridges, I worked in Kuta.

What is your biggest challenge as sous-chef at bridges?
One of my first challenges was to learn each team member’s character as we work with people of various backgrounds in our kitchen. Knowing your team is important and helps transfer knowledge among all of us.  The team here is very helpful and eager to learn. Besides that, they also make a very solid group—one team, one goal. Another challenge that I face is having a broad understandings of every element on our menu. Luckily, I have a very good memory!

What are your favourite dishes at bridges?
This is a tough question. I love all the dishes, each of them having its own characteristics. But, if you insist, I would choose Thai-Inspired Barramundi and Chilled Sambuca-Poached Pear.

What do you like to do in your free time?
I liked to go on Instagram and look for the latest food trends. I also like be in the nature and truly love Bali’s rice terraces. And watching a game of football is a hobby of mine as well.
