I am a former CFO, PADI Diver, Photographer, and follower of expat wife for 10 years in Asia. We lived in Shanghai, Jakarta-Indonesia, Dhaka-Bangladesh, Shanghai again and Hong Kong now. I always enjoyed with cooking to my family and the friends. Cooking has been my biggest hobby since my childhood. I grow up in my grandma's kitchen.
A couple of years ago, I have started hosting home dining events first in Dhaka, and then in Shanghai, where my cooking quickly gained popularity. Now, I would like to continue my cooking journey with our valuable guests in Hong Kong. If you want to spend your evening with finger-lickingly good foods and friendly, cheerful, talkative host, please do booking...
You will never regret!
We were very lucky to be hosted by Erdal. It was a finger licking and authentic turkish cuisine. You will get served like how you would had in a fine dining restaurant. I have tried a lot of the regional cusine when I was living in Middle East, yet this dinner surprised me and set a new standard for me. I definitively will come back for his other menus.
Me and my boyfriend had a incredible time chatting with Erdal. He shared with us his fond of Turkish cuisine with passion. This experience totally represents how plate culture is like- cultural sharing through home dining experience. We need more home chef like Erdal!
His balcony overlooks the repulse bay beach. The night we went was drizzling a bit, super romantic and surreal!
It was a great Authentic Turkish meal. The dishes are prepared with the 2 most important ingredients of the Mediterranean food-very good olive oil and spice. The vegetables are fresh. The meatballs are perfectly cooked with a slightly pink center and a well done shell. I also like the fact that the whole meal is on the healthy light side compare to the conventional Mideastern/Mediterranean cuisine-which tend to be heavily loaded in olive oil especially the appetizers/vegetables. Chef Erdal is also well traveled like us. We enjoyed talking to him about the cultures, histories of the places we all visited. A evening of good food and good company. Highly recommended.
My wife and I were so lucky that we had the chance to taste Erdal's delicious food both in Shanghai and Hong Kong. It was one of the best dining experiences ever, and the food tasted definitely better than several fancy restaurants out there. I definitely recommend you to try Erdal's signature dishes. You won't regret. Five stars for Chef@Home *****
I do not know how and where to start to describe Erdal Chef's cooking. Well the starters ... They are simply delicious and you could feel every single ingredients taste separately with an amazing harmony with the feeling of umami where you can reach this level in top star Mediterranean or Turkish restaurants by paying 100s of dollars and beyond that his main dishes and pizzas are also great and he is a master on desserts as well
Beyond all the food experience it is a previlage to chat with him as he is a total traveler and a sophisticated man .... This is an amazing experience and we are also planning to visit him in Hong Kong very soon once our baby is ready to meet his cookings !!!
We have met with Erdal Chef's food while he was in Dhaka and it was totally amazing . Not only the food also the way he serves as well as his friendship and it is hard to describe as he really works hard to improve his recipes and make us amazed whenever we had our dinner with his food.
As a " Meze Lover " ( Mediterranean&Lebanese& Turkish Appetizers ), I would say he is one of the best in all over the world and his cold dishes are extremely tasty and you can eat similar only in Michelin Starred Restaurants and once I remember eating his pizzas and the dough and all the cheese and every single detail was perfect. I could say more and more but this experience is for tasting not for writing and hard to describe with words.
To sum up, I could recommend Erdal Chef's not only for the food which has been made by his love and passion also the way he serves and the way he communicates and deals with every single detail to the table as well as the customers. You may feel like you are having a dinner at your house... A must have experience for food lovers and gourmets...
I feel lucky to have had the chance to eat Erdal's amazing dishes! He really cooks with love and this can be tasted in his food. All the dishes I had brought me back to Turkey and made me want more, very hard to get enough! Look forward to tasting more of Erdal's mouth watering food very soon!!
Erdal is a master of Traditional Turkish food as well as Mediterranean cuisine.He is so curious on making delicious trials which make you impossible to stop!
Not only his skills as a cook ,his personality is also 5 star(you would call Michelin 3 star in cultural level) that makes you spend added-value time for your life experience.At last ,he is a great father and photographer.Lots of things to learn from him :)
Thank you Erdal for your greatness !
