Biography

Vlorla (Flora) was born in an Indonesian Chinese family. After her grandparents migrated to Hong Kong in the 70’s, they had opened two small Indonesian restaurants named “Subur” and “Good Luck” in Hung Hom and Tsuen Wan respectively. Her mother brought her to the restaurant kitchen since she was a kid. That’s why she now describes herself “someone being raised in the kitchen”.

After grown up, Flora took some cooking courses to further equip her cooking skillset. However, the kitchen work in restaurants in the reality is too harsh for her that she could only share her food with friends. Word of mouth spread since she started to cook for friends at their home, and she started being a part-time private chef in 2017. Flora keeps the Indonesian recipes from her mother, many of the Indonesian dishes she does are not vastly available in Hong Kong restaurants. Every time when she cooks in a private occasion, she freshly blends the spices from scratch and prepare the sauces on-day for her homey dishes. Flora is a happy and approachable chef; she cares about the taste and also the presentation of her dishes as both make up a complete dining experience for the Gourmets.

We hired Flora for a dinner party of six because we wanted something different. She helped us prepare an Indonesian-Thai menu with the request of no spicy and limited seafood selection. No spicy for Indonesian-Thai food? Yes, she did it and the food was great! It was different from dishes you see in a regular Thai or Indonesian restaurant. You can tell she put a lot of effort into it. We would definitely recommend Flora! And we look forward to hiring her again in the future!

昨天是與太太之相識紀念日, 現今已是一家四口, 小孩還小, 工人姐姐放假, 外出或自煮都有難度. 決定第一次嘗試用MOBICHEF的服務, 並選了FLORA作為一第一位大廚. 7點半開飯, FLORA很準時, 4:30便到家了. 與我想像不同. 打開門, FLORA 換好制服後, 全程自動化. 7:30 便可準時用餐. 這次也邀請了外父外母, 4個人也很滿意. 已在討論下次要吃什麼了.

I’ve always enjoyed the service with Mobichef and Fanny’s assistance on everything. This time my friends and I want to give 5 plus stars with Chef Flora’s cooking and hospitality. Every dish was amazing and nicely presented. We loved Flora’s humbleness even though her food was amazing and the portion was generous. I will definitely have Flora back to my home again for another wonderful culinary experience.
