Master chef, maverick and culinary rule-breaker, 3-Michelin-starred Chef Alvin Leung is known for defying the laws of culinary gastronomy, crafting stellar dishes that excite the senses and go far beyond merely tasting superb.
Newly opened, 15 Stamford by Alvin Leung over at The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore pays humble tribute to various Asian cuisines in and around Southeast Asia. The menu features a host of dishes that showcase innovation, gutsy elaboration but above all, a contemporary twist on Asian favourites, all designed by the self-proclaimed “demon chef” himself and inspired by his many travels across Asia.
Designed to tease and astonish in a myriad of ways yet keeping true to the spirit of each style of cuisine, we were thoroughly impressed by the 72-Hour U.S. Short Ribs Rendang and Pickled Cabbage that, besides being tender beyond belief, was richly aromatic and nuanced.
The menu is carefully designed to suit anyone and everyone, from those new to the deeply-rooted flavours and recipes of Asia to locals keen on experiencing a contemporary approach to classic favourites.

Evoking the same archetypal atmosphere of a classic high-end steakhouse in New York—from their mahogany furnishings to the sounds of Sinatra playing in the background—Morton’s The Steakhouse beautifully encapsulates the classic, speakeasy-style of American fine dining.
This steakhouse juggernaut in Mandarin Oriental impresses in more ways than one, from the impeccable standards upheld by their service staff to their array of phenomenal meat and seafood offerings. Every detail—the honest selection of succulent, wet-aged USDA Prime steaks, fresh seafood, extensive and award-winning wine list etc—attributes to why we absolutely love dining here.
The signature orders here include the wet-aged Prime Ribeye Steak and the colossal 48-ounce Porterhouse but for non-meat eaters, they also serve up a solid range of fresh seafood such as Maine Lobster, Honey-Balsamic Glazed Ora King Salmon and the must-try Seared Cod with Romesco Sauce that you can opt to have off their seasonal menu.
It’s easy to feel intimidated by a high-end restaurant like Morton’s especially so in all its classy, mahogany-clad glory, but truly, there is so much more to this steakhouse institution that goes far beyond just being a destination for business meetings and special occasions. With their stellar line-up of house classics coupled with their ever-changing seasonal menu, there’s bound to be something to tickle even the most discerning of palates.
