Located at the cafe, Ground Coffee , Damansara Utama, Anon.kl is the newest restaurant in the scene. As reported by Malay Mail, Muhammad Adeeb Palil is the genius chef behind this eatery and his culinary experience is just as impressive as his cooking skills.

He also worked at Nathalie's Gourmet Studio by the one and only Chef Nathalie Arbefeuille who was named Chef of the Year 2011 by Time Out Magazine.

Adeeb further expanded his professional career by working at La Bergerie in Toulouse, France and world-renowned Boulud Sud in New York owned by Michelin Chef, Daniel Boulud.
