SHISEN HANTEN BY CHEF KENTARO
Mandarin Orchard Singapore, Level 35, 333 Orchard Road, S(238867)
TEL: 6831 6262/66 Helmed by chef Chen Kentaro, Shisen Haten is located on the 35th floor of the Mandarin Orchard Singapore. He’s famous for Sichuan fare, which includes a stunning appetiser of foie gras chawanmushi with crab roe. This indulgent dish is made up of a rich blend of foie gras, smooth egg custard, crab roe and shredded crab that’s lovely with every mouthful. Not to be missed is the dish of chicken with chilli peppers—the savoury meat is first deep-fried to perfection and seasoned with a balanced but spicy kick. The stewed fish fillet with pickled vegetables is another dish to try. Served in a hot stone pot, the broth is refreshing, with subtle hints of spice and pickled vegetables adding a refreshing tang. For meat lovers, the Sichuan-style stir-fried kurobuta pork with garlic leaf is a winner. Conclude the meal with the Shinsen Haten Coconut Fantasy, featuring a generous portion of bird’s nest and almond pudding served in a young coconut. The creamy, smooth texture of the almond pudding matches well with the natural sweetness of the young coconut.
