F&B group Jumbo Group announced that it has introduced a new F&B concept, Slake, to its portfolio of restaurants and has opened two additional Kok Kee Wanton Noodle stalls in Singapore, bringing the brand’s network to six outlets across Singapore. 

Slake is a homegrown modern Southeast Asian restaurant by self-professed food enthusiast, Jeremy Cheok. From the Opera Estate neighbourhood, Slake is now open at the city-centre at The Riverwalk. The new concept opened its door to customers on Dec 8, presenting a menu peppered with culinary creativity for an epic Southeast Asian feast. Originally a Jumbo Seafood outlet, the group converted the space into a venue for gatherings and celebrations, offering a relaxed and fun ambience to dine and wine. The outlet has a seating capacity of 93, with an option of indoor and outdoor dine-in.

Separately, the group is also on track with its plans to open more Kok Kee stalls in Singapore. The new stall located at 301 Punggol Central, #01-06, Stall 5, Singapore 820301 started operations on Dec 13, while another, housed within the newly revamped Kopitiam in Jurong Point, 1 Jurong West Central 2, #03-42, Singapore 648886, officially opened on Dec 21. 

Kok Kee was acquired by the Group in December 2020, with its flagship store at Foch Road.  Standardisation of processes and centralised production of certain products at the central kitchen have facilitated the group in extending the operating hours at the flagship store, and the opening of five new outlets within a year, with consistent food quality maintained across all outlets. 

Shares in Jumbo closed at 32 cents on Dec 21.
