  1. Bio

    Hi! I'm Hon Sing and Magarita Santiago is my wife, founders of Hungry Mario. Cooking started as a hobby. I have always been surrounded by awesome home-cooked food by my mom, but never really cooked in the kitchen when I was young. Yet I have always watched her prepare traditional Hakka dishes like Yong Tau Foo, Lui Cha, fried pork with fermented tofu, steamed pork belly layered with yam and the list goes on! I started cooking as a necessity. Mainly because my wife loves to eat! Sixteen years passed and the passion for cooking lives on.

    As a self-taught chef, I embrace the world itself as an interactive classroom, which has allowed for a truly authentic, hands-on culinary lifestyle. With artistic creativity on every plate, I strive for balance, color, and texture diversity.

    We love to travel. We have been to countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Korea, China, Australia, Dubai, France and Netherlands. Travelling have much influenced my cooking and made me a better chef.

    My life motto is to be happy. Steve Jobs once quoted “The only way to do great work is to love what you do”. I hope I can achieve that through food.

A group of friends decided to experience something new and different for a birthday celebration.
Never having dined this way before, we didn't know what to expect.
Communication from the start was great.
The dining room was very inviting and the Chef very attentive.

The food was beautifully presented and totally delicious.

A great evening and definitely a dining experience to repeat.

Reply from Hungry M.:  Thanks for your humbling words. We are glad you and your guests had a wonderful time here. It was lovely to get to know your friends too! Hope to see you again soon. ;)

If you are having a hard time choosing between fine dining & home cooked goodness, think no further and head to Hungry Mario's Supper Club. Being served with delicious gourmet food in a warm homely environment, Chef Sim compromises none when it comes to providing a truly remarkable dining experience.

The ultimate foodgasm cooked with love and passion. Their creations will definitely set you wanting for more.Their cured bacon codename "bacon jowl" is a must to try. Beats any bacon out there. Their warm hospitality is something you to look out for.
Such friendly and fun couple. I'll be coming again soon!

Fabulous use of home & hand made ingredients, featuring a plethora of common and quirky ingredients and always served in grandiose portions. Worth every cent.

The main highlight of the evening is definitely Chef Sim's Porchetta. The extra crispy pork skin married with the juicy tender pork steak is sinfully delicious. This is an amazing feat to achieve as you have to find the right timing and control of heat to reach the pinnacle of roasting pork meat. The stuffing does a great job keeping the meat moist and tender. Dont forget the roasted apple too! The best side dish with a twist.
We'll be back for more most definitely!

Best pork steak in town, nice ambiance, friendly hospitality, very good looking chef + beautiful hostess... a tad pricey above average, but if you are looking for a one-of-a-kind supper club experience, recommended!

I must say I'm a big fan of Chef Sim's dishes. Taking normal recipes and adding hints of flavor from a wide range of cuisines to make unique tastes you can't get anywhere else. The chef and hostess are also very hospitable and charming. 3 thumbs up!

I was fortunate enough to be able to attend not 1, but 2 scrumptlicious dinner get togethers hosted at Hungry Mario's. I would say that if one is looking to be surprised by culinary artistry, Hungry Mario's the place to go. Their introductory starter 'Best Chicken Wings Ever' lived up to its name as the aroma and taste I had last weekend still linger in my thoughts even as I am writing this testimonial. What sorcery! Or shall I say "What sauce-ery!"

Its difficult to decide if i should start with the superb hospitality of the chef and the gorgeous hostess who are consistently making sure I had everything I needed and that it was up to expectations, the perfect intimate setting for dinner among close friends or just being straight to the point and and telling them " You are missing out on an experience". All in all, Hungry Mario offers you a friendly environment with fantastic tasting fine dining like food at an affordable price. Go give it a try, great tasting food cooked with quality ingredients and love are definitely hard to come by nowadays, but then again, i don't need to tell you that, you already know it ;)
