Emily Lim - DABAO

Singapore-born and bred, Emily fell in love with California and moved to San Francisco in 2014 to build her professional experience in fine dining and casual dining establishments. With her undying love for the hustle, a long-term commitment to heritage foods and food culture, and a deep desire to build cultural bridges and to give back, she grasped the opportunity to create something that was missing in San Francisco - authentic Singaporean hawker foods.

DABAO Singapore was founded for one purpose: To provide opportunities to our friends in the food and beverage industry who lost their jobs whilst recreating the experience of eating at a hawker centre in Singapore with friends and/or family.
