Tony Cheng

CEO, Founder, Drawing Room Concepts

Hong Kong

Tony Cheng, CEO and founder of Drawing Room Concepts (DRC), started his culinary business in 2009. Today, DRC owns and manages nine restaurants with seven unique concepts, including AMMO, Hainan Shaoye and Made in HK.

Tony’s devotion to cooking and hospitality started at the age of 14 when he made roast chicken for his friends. He developed his interest professionally at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in London while studying a Bachelor degree in Economics at University College London. After graduation, he joined PricewaterhouseCoopers and Macquarie, where he learnt the financial side of managing a business.

In 2008, he finally decided to follow his passion and committed himself to the restaurant business. He worked as Chef de Partie at RistoranteAll’Oro in Rome, and met his mentor-and-friend Chef Roland Schuller after returning to Hong Kong and together they started The Drawing Room.

Apart from being a restaurateur, Tony is also a popular celebrity chef who has been featured in cookbooks and journals and has hosted various cooking shows such as NOW TV’s Chef Corner & RTHK’s Food & Culture.
