Tay Su-Lyn

Director, Violet Oon Singapore
Location: Singapore

Think Peranakan food and the name Violet Oon will likely come to mind—be it the restaurant brand or the feisty matriarch behind the business. In recent years, the family business began embracing its second-generation leaders—namely Violet’s two children, Tay Su‑Lyn (pictured left) and Tay Yiming—to drive the business forward. For older sibling Su-Lyn, her responsibilities lie in building the brand, which includes her mother's flagship restaurant in Bukit Timah and four others around Singapore, such as National Kitchen by Violet Oon at the National Gallery Singapore and Violet Oon Satay Bar & Grill in Clarke Quay. Regardless of changes or new additions to the family business' restaurant portfolio, the director of Violet Oon Singapore says tradition still reigns supreme. “Our traditional Peranakan preparation methods, though laborious, are precious to us as a culture and we hope to preserve this taste of history.”
