Cantonese cuisine is a fine art.
Preparation of Cantonese dishes requires a great deal of skill and expertise as the flavours of Cantonese cuisine must be well-balanced, not greasy whilst ensuring that its primary ingredients are the stars of the dish.
Situated on the 5th floor of Singapore’s iconic National Gallery and led by Master Chef Chan Kung Lai, Yàn specialises in authentic Cantonese cuisine that’s artfully prepared and presented. It is the perfect place for birthday celebrations, business luncheons and family gatherings!

Tucked away in the corner of the 3rd floor of PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road, Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant is a family’s favourite and is renown for its outstanding Sichuan and Cantonese dishes.
This year, Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant at PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road celebrates its 6th anniversary.

A dining experience at Orchid Live Seafood is akin to teleporting yourselves back into time. While the old-school seafood restaurant is tucked away in a remote corner of Sembawang, its inaccessibility has not deterred its loyal customers from patronising it.
Award-winning Orchid Live Seafood has received many public figures over the years and that list includes Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
Orchid Live Seafood’s superbly fresh dishes are seriously worth travelling for, and can we say just how much we love the kampong-style experience?! The restaurant is also home to a huge collection of South African craft beers.
From now until 31 December 2016, quote ‘ladyironchef’ to enjoy 40% off craft beers with any purchase of items on the menu (valid only on weekdays). Meanwhile, here’s what you can expect from Orchird Live Seafood—also the creator of the famous Lobster Porridge.
We have never experienced dim sum the way we have at Mitzo Restaurant & Bar. The swanky, sleek and modern interior is a stark contrast to the traditional Chinese cuisine that is served here. To match the trendy interior, most of Mitzo’s classic dim sum dishes are elevated with stunning presentations and intricate plating, while still retaining the original flavour palette.
While we love their tantalising and luxurious dishes in their Weekend Brunch, we are stoked that we now have a new reason to pop by on weekday afternoon - Mitzo is launching the all-new value-for-money lunch sets on 12 October 2016. A 3-course meal goes for S$28++ per person, and a 4-course meal is S$38++ per person.
Dim Sum – or what we know as little parcels of happiness – is essentially steamed Chinese-style tapas that are usually served in bamboo baskets. The consumption of dim sum started from the Cantonese community and is now a favourite afternoon past-time amongst Singaporeans too.
As dim sum is usually eaten during the day, most Chinese restaurants only serve these dainty dishes until late afternoon (only a few restaurants serve dim sum until ate night). The variety of dim sum is exhaustive – baked barbecue egg tarts, steamed shrimp dumplings, salted egg yolk buns, fried radish cake… and the list goes on.
Here is our guide to The Best Dim Sum Restaurants in Singapore.
Doubled boiled soups are an important part of the Cantonese dining culture. A good bowl of traditional double-boiled Cantonese soup is gratifying and flavoursome, using simple yet nutritious ingredients that are often very beneficial for one’s health. It’s said that the mark of a good Cantonese restaurant also comes down to the taste of its double-boiled soups.
From now to 31 October 2016, Yàn at National Gallery Singapore will be introducing a ‘Prosperity Soup Feast’ which consists of 25 double boiled soups! Each soup order (S$13.80++) comes with a bowl of fragrant crispy rice, lightly poached in superior stock,to complete your meal.
TungLok Seafood — a concept by the reputable TungLok Group — has made quite a name for itself amongst Singaporeans with its exceptionally fresh Singapore-style seafood delicacies.
