Former Masterchef contestant Reynold Poernomo has opened a sister location to Chippendale’s Koi Dessert Bar in Ryde.
Koi Dessert Kitchen will feature a café with eat-in and takeaway options as well as a cooking school, with classes from some of Sydney’s best dessert chefs such as the Shangri-La Hotel’s Anna Polyviou, Berkelo Bakery’s Tom Eadie, and Poernomo himself.
Poernomo promises a different menu from the Chippendale store, complete with themes and interactive elements.
Poernomo is running the joint with his mother, Ike Malada and his brothers, Ronald and Masterchef Indonesia judge Arnold Poernomo.
