If you are looking for a cosy spot to have a modern European meal, a drink or just for afternoon tea in the Mohamed Sultan area, think of House of MU. And if you are on the lookout for teak furniture, think of House of MU too.

Chef Tyrell Joon helms the kitchen here, having worked at Michelin-starred restaurants Les Amis, Au Jardin and Iggy’s. Step into House of MU and breathe in the indisputable sylvan scent of Burmese teak furniture that can be purchased.

One of the three partners at House of MU is David Yong. David’s maternal grandparents owned a logging company in Indonesia while his father founded Evergreen Teak Trading with factories in Myanmar. Today David runs his father’s timber business and also founded Burma Teak Asia, the company’s furniture arm that produces designer furniture using Burmese teak products. By venturing into House of MU, he is able to showcase his furniture in a restaurant setting.

David’s other two business partners at House of Mu include Joel Low and Suzanna Ho. Joel was previously a sommelier at Les Amis Group, a consultant building up his portfolio of buying restaurants, reinventing them and then selling them for profit and also an investor funding start-ups and the F&B industry. Joel also started Agrivo International to provide funding for agricultural companies.

Suzanna was born in the UK and worked in Hong Kong as an investment banker for many years before making Singapore her home. After leaving her banking career, Suzanna started an empire of restaurants in the UK. She pursued her love of wine and spirits and has been a student of the Master of Wine Institute since 2015.
