Chef Addis Tan from Love Handle

Addis Tan: Thinking out of the butcher's box from shredding skate parks to killing it in the vegan kitchen. He was an aggressive inline skater who represented Singapore on tournaments. But a serendipitous opportunity took him back to the kitchen — a place where he spent his childhood playing commis chef to his mother — and he soon swapped wheels for whites. A love for food has always been flowing in the veins of Addis Tan. While travelling on competition, he would zip through streets and alleys on his wheels in his own time: not to find the coolest skate hangouts, but the sickest street eats. This could be a food truck doling out sloppy burgers or a cult joint selling tacos. After being pulled to help out in the kitchen of a steakhouse he was working at, Addis rekindled his love for cooking. “I was 17 and had a side gig in restaurant service to earn more, even though I was skating semi-professionally. Then I got called to help in the kitchen when a chef went MIA, and I enjoyed it so much.” He subsequently became part of the opening team when the steakhouse opened a new outlet. Before he knew it, the kid who dropped out of school at 14 voluntarily enrolled in At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy. “Others visit museums and places of interest— I discover a city through its streets and its food on the street.”
