Know more about Chef Karim's Cooking Style with these sample menus.


How did you start your journey?

Cooking is more than mixing ingredients and creating aroma. After several years of hard work, I felt myself closest to the Japanese & Asian cuisines. Playing a new harmony between Japanese-Asian & the Mediterranean creates my "Own cooking Style" touch.

Where is your cuisine inspired from?

Born to cook, not an easy word, but when you dare yourself to professionalism, you can achieve it. I graduated from La Sagesse University - Faculty of Hospitality Management, with the academic certification of Ecole Hoteliere de Laussane Switzerland. And working in a Three Michelin Star Restaurant "De Librije" top best restaurant in Netherlands for more than 11 years and one of the Top Restaurant in the World.
