Chef Scott Hallsworth ‘Freak Scene London World Tour’ at Raya Heritage

 |  May 30, 2019

Chef Scott Hallsworth was born and raised in Western Australia, at the age of sixteen he left school in order to pursue an apprenticeship at a hotel in Collie. After completing his apprenticeship, Scott moved to Perth and worked for well-known restaurants such as the Hyatt Hotel, 44 King Street Brasseries, and Hayman Island resort on the Great Barrier Reef. This is where he built up a repertoire of Asian dishes, many of which have inspired Freak Scene’s menu.

After brief stints in Toronto, Zermatt, Western Australia and Chamonix, Scott moved to London in 2001 and joined Nobu as Chef de Partie. Six years later, he moved up the ranks and become the Michelin-starred restaurant Head Chef. In 2007, Scott moved back to Australia to help Nobu open a new branch in Melbourne. Yet, later he decided to leave Nobu in order to set up his own venture in Dubai, where he opened Mirai. In 2012, Scott returned to England to open Wabi in West Sussex, as well as a second branch in London.

In 2013, Scott was inspired to create his own restaurant, where tapa-style plates are served in a casual setting. This is when Kurobuta was born; a Japanese Izakaya restaurant with a unique and chilled out ambience located at London’s Chelsea Kings road. In 2017, Scott left Kurobuta and founded Freak scene, a Pan-Asian pop up in Farringdon with his partner Phar Shaweewan, former Private Dining and Events Administrator at Nobu. Currently, the pop up store has a permanent home on Soho which opened in March 2018.
