HAUTE CAN­TONESE CUI­SINE

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Wine & Dine -

Look­ing for some­thing dif­fer­ent this Mother’s Day? Cas­sia at Capella Sin­ga­pore is a beau­ti­ful place to spend time with fam­ily and friends. In­spired by the an­cient spice routes in South­ern and Western China, and by the seas around Sin­ga­pore, this fine-din­ing Can­tonese restau­rant is as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the stom­ach, adorned with flo­ral screens, lac­quered de­tails, or­na­men­tal lamps and scal­loped booths. There’s also a ter­race with sea views, per­fect for sun­set cock­tails or post-din­ner drinks.

The vast à la carte menu of­fers ev­ery­thing from steamed dumplings and Pek­ing duck to suck­ling pig and wok-fried wagyu, plus an ex­ten­sive as­sort­ment of seafood spe­cial­ties. Our per­sonal favourites in­clude the sig­na­ture Chilean sea bass en­hanced with black gar­lic ($22), seafood fried rice ($12 per per­son) and steamed har gau – prawn dumplings with as­para­gus and dried scal­lops ($6 for two pieces). And don’t miss the in­cred­i­ble “Chef’s Sig­na­ture XO Sauce” made with Parma ham, sole, chilli paste, dried scal­lops and more.

For a day­time treat, try the weekend dim sum set lunch ($59 per per­son), or the East Meets West af­ter­noon tea ($39.90), where you can choose be­tween a dim sum menu and a tra­di­tional English tea ex­pe­ri­ence. 1 The Knolls, Sen­tosa Is­land. 6591 5045 | capel­la­ho­tels.com/sin­ga­pore
