A Singapore chef shared on social media yesterday that he was the subject of racist remarks by guests at a Chinese New Year event he was hired to cook at, recently.

The freelance BBQ chef, Musitharthan, said that the remarks were made in Mandarin – a language he is familiar with. Revealing that the incident took place on Sunday (25 Feb) at a condomunium, Musitharthan shared:

“So here’s the thing, i went to this condo to cook for a CNY Get-together While i was cooking yesterday..This group of people were talking in Chinese about the food, they said “Look at the curry cooking so carefully and slowly without burning the food to his colour!”
