We help travelers understand why the food here is so special and how it is intricately connected to the identities of the people who make it. George Town is a new city, but it is a city with a storied past that shapes our present. We've realised that food creates a connection between people, cultures and experiences. It is a bridge between the place you're at and the place you're from. Right now, the world needs more bridges between people.

Our Values

1. It's Personal

We believe that connecting with people is one of the most rewarding things in life. We’re passionate to explore, thirsty for stories to learn and tell, and hungry for new experiences. We really care about what we do and we like to do it with flair and passion and a sense of fun.

2. People Matter

Food is intrinsically linked to human connection. We don’t just eat: we experience, we remember, we bond. From our earliest memories of the morning aromas in the kitchen, to the comfort of finding those same memories in a far away place, food is often the means to something intangible but no less nourishing.

3. Do Good

We don’t know if we can change the world, but we have a chance do some good things in our little corner of the globe. Travel is such a powerful activity - the opportunity to experience new unfamiliar places, to meet people with diverse lived experiences and to discover the boundaries of our own knowledge - it’s a powerful, transformative thing.
