TENG WEN WEE
AGE: 34
INDUSTRY: FOOD AND BEVERAGE
EDUCATION: University of Pennsylvania
Wee changed the scene for the young and hip in Singapore forever when he cofounded White Rabbit, a restaurant/bar in Dempsey Hill that was so far removed from anything that was available (a fine dining restaurant in a converted chapel). This was the beginning of a personal empire that he continues to build: one separate from that which he was born into as an heir of a prominent Singaporean banking family. The success of White Rabbit was followed by more restaurants, Loof, Singapore’s first stand-alone rooftop bar; OverEasy, an American-style diner; Tanjong Beach Club, a seaside restaurant and bar; Extra Virgin Pizza; and most recently the art-deco gem Black Swan, all under the restaurant group he co-founded, Lo and Behold.
