Opening of Syun At Resorts World Sentosa + Tangerine’s New Spa Cuisine Menu

Syun

Resorts World Sentosa has a belt of dining outlets for all kinds of budgets and occasions, and we never run out of options whenever we are in the compound. We have our favourites, but recent new additions and revamped menus got us all excited.

First up is Syun – a Japanese outlet helmed by famous Japanese Chef Hal Yamashita. Joining the line-up of celebrity chef restaurants, Syun – which means a season of new beginnings – focuses on modern Japanese contemporary cuisine. The Singapore outpost is Chef Hal Yamashita’s first venture outside of Japan. Singaporeans’ love for Japanese food knows no boundaries, and this is one place you have to check out. We will share more in a bit.

Tangerine

Meanwhile, Thai Chef Ian Kittichai – who has 11 restaurants, including his flagship Thai Restaurant Issaya Siamese Club in Bangkok – has taken over the role of consulting chef for Tangerine at ESPA, and he has introduced a brand new menu which highlights his take on spa cuisine. Spa cuisine is known to be light and healthy, but Chef Ian Kittichai has elevated it to a whole new level. We will also be sharing some of the highlights from his new menu.

Now, mark your calendar. It’s time to head back to Resorts World Sentosa for more gastronomical escapades.

New Weekend Set Lunches at Joël Robuchon Restaurant and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Singapore

Joel Robuchon Restaurant

Having a meal at a Joël Robuchon Restaurant is not just about the food; it is about the overall dining experience right from the moment you step in to the restaurant.

When Joël Robuchon was in Singapore back in December, we met up with him for an exclusive session to get an insight, as well as to experience the magic in the restaurant’s kitchen - the sacred ground of haute cuisine. It was an unforgettable afternoon – to interact with the humble man, and to catch glimpses of his talented team at work.

Most people have the misconception that it is expensive to dine at a Joël Robuchon’s establishment. However, that is not necessarily the case. Joël Robuchon Restaurant and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon at Resorts World Sentosa have just launched its new weekend set lunches and the prices are super reasonable for the quality of food you will be getting, and the luxe dining experience.

Resorts World Sentosa’s Chinese New Year Dinner 2015

Feng Shui Inn

There are the kind of places where you bring your date to for a private celebration, or for a team lunch. Then, there is also the list for more intimate experiences with friends and families. For Chinese New Year 2015, Resorts World Sentosa has two perfect options for everyone.

Want an elegant space with top-grade Chinese cuisine for a night of sheer indulgence? Feng Shui Inn is the kind that fits the bill. Mark this place down and consider it one of the places to feast at.

Apart from Lo-hei of several options, there is an a la carte menu. The Poached Seasonal Greens with Live Lobster and Black Fungus (S$38 for a small portion) is highly recommended. For something even more flavourful, try the Pan-seared Oysters with German Pork Knuckle (S$68 per serving). This dish packs a wicked punch and is good for sharing. And for the prettiest dessert? The Soft Layered Cake with Custard & Golden Flakes (S$48 per whole cake) will set everyone’s hearts aflutter.

There are also set menus of different configurations, and prices start from S$1,188 for 6 persons.

Forest

If you prefer somewhere quieter and romantic, Forest is for you. Helmed by Chef Sam Leong and his wife, Forest, this modern outlet offers exquisite Chinese dishes in a refined setting.

Dine with your discerning loved one(s) at Forest with a range of lunch and dinner sets. To begin, every set comes with a fruity salmon yusheng. Something fresh and something different.

But if sets are too much for two, there is also an a la carte menu, from which we really love the Four Treasures Soup (S$32 per person). Braised with fish maw, sea cucumber, conpoy and crabmeat and served in a young  coconut, this is one soup that is luxurious and oh-so-sweet. Mains includes Boston Lobster that is wok-fried with green chives and fresh lily bulb (S$58 per person), Canadian Geoduck Clam (S$38 per person) and Marble Goby Fillet that is steamed with yellow bean sauce (S$34 per person). But we’d go for the Kurobuta Pork (S$28 per person) anytime – charcoal-grilled pork that is accompanied with asparagus, this dish is a fine mix of sweet and savoury.

Of course, there are many more dining options over at Resorts World Sentosa. You can find out more from their website, or like them on Facebook and Instagram for more updates. For reservations, call +65 6577 6688 or email [email protected]

Highlights of RWS Food Affair Outing

AdvertorialRWS Food Outing

As the annual RWS Food Affair is nearing (14 to 22 September 2013), the excitement builds up and everyone is looking forward to a week of feasting. Last weekend, a group of 25 readers and friends joined me at Resorts World Sentosa for a preview of some of the exclusive menus by the celebrity chefs, and it was a fulfilling day spent over good food and company at the dining destination of Singapore – Resorts World Sentosa.

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen a few posts of the tantalising dishes we had. Check out the hash tag #rwsfoodaffair and you will see everyone else’s posts too. For more details about the RWS Food Affair, log on to www.rwsentosa.com/rwsfoodaffair.

Tangerine ESPA

We started off with a 3-course lunch at Tangerine; a cosy spa cafe nestled in the tranquil ESPA. Helmed by Chef Sam Leong, Tangerine boasts a healthy menu that emphasises a lot on eating whole foods with maximum nutrition without compromising on flavours and aesthetics. We had the honour to have had Chef Sam Leong himself and Chef Forest Leong – his wife and Consultant Chef at Tangerine – introduce the menu of the day to us all. With Chef Forest Leong being a Thai, we learned more about her choices of inculcating Thai flavours to the dishes at Tangerine. And with that, everyone was filled with anticipation for a great lunch ahead.

Also, read more to find out about the 5-course dinner menu – a combination of Forest, Osia, and Executive Pastry Chef Kenny Kong’s RWS Food Affair menus served during the 9 days - that we had at Forest.
