Yas Plaza Hotels appoints Do Van Quy as new Chef de Cuisine of Jing Asia at Crowne Plaza Yas Island

Yas Plaza Hotels in Abu Dhabi has appointed a new Chef de Cuisine at their renowned foodie’s favorite Asian restaurant in the capital, Jing Asia at Crowne Plaza Yas Island. Vietnamese national, Do Van Quy will be stepping into the Yas Island property directly from one of the top IHG hotels in Vietnam, the Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, bringing with him over nine years of outstanding culinary experience in the hospitality industry working with four different international hotels and resorts. Chef Quy brings a wealth of talent to the venue at Yas Plaza Hotels to further enhance the Asian culinary offering at the property.

Chef Quy started his professional career in 2013 in Hai Phong City by opening his own restaurant. Here he began to specialize in Pho soup noodles, while also learning some key management skills that landed him several roles with leadership responsibilities in his career ahead. Later in 2016, to pursue international opportunities with diverse culinary talents, Chef Quy had his first Middle Eastern hospitality experience at an Accor property in Bahrain, Sofitel Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa where he worked as a Demi Chef and kickstarted his fine-dining chef experience. He steadily rose up the ranks and in 2018 took the position of Chef De Partie at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in Bahrain Bay. This is where he began to specialize in hand-pulled noodles, wok, and Peking duck which soon became his expertise.  

From 2019 to 2021, Chef Quy had the honor of working with some of the top IHG hotels around the world such as one of the prime tourist destinations in Maldives, the InterContinental Maamunagau Resort. There, he assisted the executive chef in setting up the culinary department during the pre-opening of the resort. This secured a well-deserved promotion from Chef de Partie to Senior Chef de Partie within two months of him joining. From here, it continued to go uphill for him through his impeccable flair in Asian cuisine, along with being a great team player. Henceforth, he was then recruited as a Junior Sous Chef at the InterContinental Hanoi Westlake Hotel & Resort, in the Vietnamese capital. Soon after, he became IHG group’s Sous Chef at InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, where he took charge of the main kitchen while excelling in all-day dining at Citron restaurant.

Coming from a rich culinary background of working with several renowned hotels and restaurants worldwide, Chef Quy moved to Abu Dhabi in 2022 to join the team of Crowne Plaza Yas Island’s beloved Asian restaurant, Jing Asia as their new Chef de Cuisine. He is dedicated to wowing the diners of the UAE beyond the usual culinary experience, hence he will be leading a cooking class on August 28th to impart with gastronomic fanatics his unique skills of mastering hand-pulled noodles. Yas Plaza Hotels is also set to launch Chef Quy’s Exclusive Pop-up Series every Sunday evening from August 7th where diners can enjoy Chef’s delectably prepared hand-pulled noodles and wok at the live station, accompanied by serving everyone a scrumptious Peking Duck on a trolley.
