PETALING JAYA: Celebrity chef Datuk Redzuawan Ismail almost came face to face with former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak at a Japanese restaurant in Pavillion.
The chef, better known as Chef Wan, said he almost bumped into Najib while having dinner at the Japanese restaurant in Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur.
"As soon as I sat down, the waiter told me that 'CW (Chef Wan), Najib is dining behind you la'.
I thought it was a joke, and when I looked inside the room, yes there he was - dining with another guy! Ada aku kesah? (Do you think I care?)" he said on his Instagram account on Friday (July 12).
Chef Wan also uploaded a video of his interaction with the waiter who gave him the information.
However, it is not known if the two men actually met each other at the restaurant later on.
Chef Wan and Najib have recently traded barbs on social media after the chef was bestowed the Felda Icon award.
Najib asked if Felda needed an icon and criticised Chef Wan for allegedly calling Felda settlers "lazy".
In turn, Chef Wan rebuked Najib, saying the former prime minister intentionally twisted his statement to make him look bad to the public.
