Bintang specialises in delicacies from Malaysia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Vietnam & Philippines. The restaurant takes inspiration not only from the exotics of East Asia but also from the creativeness of its dwelling in Camden Town, London. Read our interview with Jasmine Fairfax from Bintang below.
Describe your relationship with food in three words.
Irreplaceable, obsessed, adventurous.
If you weren’t a street food trader what would you be doing? Tell us about your journey.
I got more involved in the business so that my brother could focus on his new project MAMASONS DIRTY ICE CREAM. If I didn’t work in the restaurant industry I would probably would have listened to my parents and became a vet. Growing up I had always been working at Bintang from a young age and I knew this is where I needed to be.
What would be your last supper or your last meal on earth be if you could choose?
It would definitely a meal cooked by my mum. My mum helped my dad a lot in the kitchen when Bintang had just opened, being honest my mums’ fried chicken is insanely good which is partly why I can’t get enough of Bintangs’ wings.
Who would you love to cook for (past or present)?
My grandmother.
What is your foodie guilty pleasure?
Ice blended honeydew bubble tea.
What’s been the hardest thing so far?
As we know London has a great variety of restaurants and the most challenging part is keeping it stay relevant, so are always trying to keep up with social media and creating new original dishes that people find interesting.
What’s been the highlight so far?
Being able to see Bintang grow over the years has truly been an amazing experience to be a part of.
What advice would you give to people who are thinking of starting their own street food business?
Being able to see Bintang grow over the years has truly been an amazing experience to be a part of.
