Whether dining at the Hosts’ place, delivery, self-collect or even hiring a chef to cook at your home, Dine Inn opens up a new culinary frontier of home-style cooking. And just like home-made meals, Dine Inn Hosts allow you to customise your meals according to your preferences and budget.
The Dine Inn concept is the brainchild of Singaporean F&B veterans Chef Eric Teo, who possesses over 30 years of culinary experience, and Luke Lee, business owner of six dining establishments in Singapore. Besides being an F&B co-founder of a wide variety of F&B concepts including IKKI @ Metropolis, Park @ Holland Village, and FIVE bars, Luke also imports and markets a global portfolio of wines and spirits like Zonin wine, Borie-Manouxwine, Pravda Vodka, and more. Luke’s passion in F&B also inspired him to set up a handmade chee cheong fun hawker stall with his family in Holland Drive Market & Food Centre.
As advocates of Singaporean food, they believe that the nation’s gastronomic gems are hidden from plain sight and in the kitchen of every home. As such, Dine Inn serves to put a beacon to these culinary treasures for diners to find them at a click of a mouse. Unlike a regular food business, Dine Inn is more than just a transaction: it operates in a social context where it lays the foundation to foster community spirit and personal empowerment.
“The premise of Dine Inn is about improving the lives of people through their love for food. It creates interaction among families living in the same community when they order or dine at each other’s house and provides supplementary income for unemployed spouses who had perfected their cooking skills over the years. Last but not least, it opens up a new horizon for consumers who crave for the sincerity and affection of home-cooked meals,” said Luke Lee, co-founder of Dine Inn, who is responsible for managing the infrastructure and operations of the business.

“For aspiring chefs, Dine Inn is truly heaven-sent as the system takes care of the marketing, ordering and billing functions necessary to run a business. Wastage is minimal since food is made to order. Given these favourable auspices, Dine Inn Hosts enjoy a greater shot at success especially since they now have more time to focus on practicing and perfecting their culinary skills,” said Chef Eric Teo, co-founder of Dine Inn.
Chef Eric continues: “As a Dine Inn ambassador, I endeavor to mentor and cultivate a new generation of home chefs, they can many of whom I know are diamonds in the rough, as well as impart the knowledge they can market their menu effectively. We strongly believe that the success and longevity of Dine Inn rest on the collective shoulders, of our talented Hosts.
