Indulge In Wuisan Chandra’s New Menu At Whisper Restaurant And Gin Bar

Full name : Wuisan Chandra
Position : Executive chef

Every fine restaurant deserved a refined chef at the helm, someone to guide the way, inspire the menu and select dishes that will transform a delicious meal into an experience you will remember.

Indonesian Chef, Wuisan Chandra, understands this first hand, having started his own culinary journey in 2006 in Australia.

He worked in Sydney for a few different restaurants over a period of four years.

But home was calling for Wuisan and he decided to go back to Borneo, Indonesia.

Using the skills he developed in Sydney he opened a restaurant in his home country.

“I was privileged to open a restaurant with my friend in 2010, it was a beautiful menu comprising of modern Japanese dishes,” he said.

After working in his own restaurant for some time he was offered a position as Executive chef with Arma Resort, Chapung Sebali resort in Ubud, and a beach club in Jimbaram Bali.

During his time at the resorts Wuisan developed his skills as a chef, but the urge to open his own restaurant was too strong, and in 2019 he took the leap and opened his own restaurant in Seminyak.

His hard work and delicious food did not go unnoticed, and it wasn’t long until one of the biggest hospitality companies in Australia offered him a head chef position at a rooftop bar.

Drawn to new challenges and wanting to express himself as a chef by cooking Indonesian dishes, Wuisan decided to bring his career to the Whitsundays.

Recently hired as Executive Chef at Whisper Restaurant and Gin Bar, Wuisan said he wants to add his personality to the new and exciting menu.

“I love to cook Asian food with a western twist,” explained Wuisan,

“My aim is to stamp my personality on the Whisper lunch and dinner menu, to give our customers a dining experience they won’t forget, highlighting my delicious unique signature dishes.”

Wuisan is loving his new life in the Whitsundays and said “Starting my day looking at the beautiful views from the Mirage Resort doesn’t get boring and breathing the fresh Whitsunday air.”
