Once a while, comes a restaurant that is conceptualized and built from a partnership and this is true in the case of the De Tittle Dining Cabin. However, this partnership is from a life long friendship who had the same schooling, dreams, hobbies and interest.

De Tittle Dining Cabin is owned and operated by life long friends, Ean Lau and Janice Ooi who practically did things together literally, loves to travel around the world and enjoys cooking. As soon as you walked inside the restaurant, you can see the personal and in a sense touches Ean and Janice had put into their restaurant. They painted their restaurant themselves with with the help of friends and the decor reflects their personality, young, contemporary and chic.

Their inspiration comes from the love of travel and they wanted to bring back a small part of the country they visited and what better way is through food.
