Ivan had a strong passion for entrepreneurship. At the university he attended, he opened his first café, from where his exploration for the hospitality industry began.
Ivan was very interested in bread culture from the beginning and through trial and error created a bread full of originality. His passion brought great success to his first café, but three years after opening it, he moved it from the university and at the same time challenged a new business, a central kitchen for bread, which now successfully supplies several restaurants.
Three years later, he had a fateful encounter with Dempsey Hill. Inspired by the place, he established the concept of fine dining with local and Asian cultures and named it “Hathaway”. Enjoy the relaxing interior and natural healing outside the window, as well as the homemade bread baked in the restaurant and Peranakan’s style fish curry, which he inherited from his grandmother and can only be sampled here.
“Quality was the most important factor. I have worked with other suppliers for a long time, but in order to serve quality-oriented dishes, I decided to take on a new challenge with Hoshizaki, who has been well received as a kitchen supplier for a long time. ” says Ivan. “The kitchen was satisfactory, but not only that, I am also very happy with the after-sales service with them. I think they are the best partner because they respond so quickly.”
