HAUTE CANTONESE CUISINE
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
