Jim’s Malaysia opens at The Corner


Since he first found his passion for food in his home country of Malaysia, chef Jim Yong has been continuing to share his delicacies with those fortunate enough to try his cooking.

In a bid to perfect his craft, he studied under the instruction of a Sifu master, with the Nyonya communities in Malaysia, and at coastal and remote villages including Kuala Terengganu and Kelantan.

All these travels have ensured an authentic taste remains in all Jim’s dishes.  

In fact, he continues to visit countries like China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand to build on his extensive skills’ list. 

After more than 30 years’ experience in the food industry, he has bought his culinary skills to Australia, winning hearts and mouths in venues across Sydney.  

Last month he opened the doors of the Hunter’s first Jim’s Malaysia restaurant, launching a dine-in and takeaway outlet at The Corner, on the outdoor fringes of Charlestown Square.

Celebrated for its Heartly Char Koay Teow, Homemade Laksa and Hainanese Chicken Rice, his team in Charlestown is also hoping to impress locals at home, introducing catering options to their extensive menu too. 

And, if customer reviews are anything to go by, Jim’s dishes are already impressing Novocastrians, gaining a string of positive feedback in less than a month.

Our top tip: Heartly Char Koay Teow. Jim’s Malaysia’s signature dish. Flat rice noodles stir-fried over very high heat with light and dark soy sauce, chilli, and garlic. I can see why this is the most popular street food in Malaysia. I felt like I was sitting by the beach in Penang again.
