In the heart of cosmopolitan Singapore, amidst the glittering city skyscrapers and the bustling streets, is a restaurant that distills the essence of Asia’s rich and diverse culinary traditions into an unforgettable evening full of flavour.
Nestled in a colonial-era building a few streets away from Raffles and Marina Bay, 15 Stamford at The Capitol Kempinski Hotel is a pan-Asian culinary playground curated by the distinguished two Michelin-starred ‘Demon Chef’, Alvin Leung.
From the fiery, piquant palate of Thai cuisine to the earthy, profound depths of Korean gastronomy, each dish on the extensive, meat and seafood-heavy menu impeccably captures the spirit and essence of its origin, which Chef Leung says is inspired from his “years of walking through Asia”.
This culinary voyage catapults diners from one flavour-intense locale to another, immersing them in a vibrant tapestry of tastes and textures unique to the gastronomic wonders of the continent.
Take the Konasu Eggplant, its robust flavours amplified by Saikyo Miso, allowing for a rich umami profile. The addition of Nanami Chilli Pepper lends an exhilarating kick, each fiery spark on the palate stoking anticipation for the next bite.
The building itself, a proud beacon of the city-state’s colonial past, juxtaposes beautifully with Chef Leung’s culinary innovation, creating an experience that is as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the tastebuds.
Echoing the holistic ethos of the establishment is the restaurant’s meticulously curated bar, renowned for being home to one of Singapore’s largest collections of rum labels.
The array of cocktail classics on offer at the bar further reinforces the commitment to creating a comprehensive experience in all facets.
Undoubtedly, the pièce de résistance of 15 Stamford is the Tropical Sunday Champagne Brunch. Think live stations teeming with an assortment of modern Asian delicacies, grilled meats and seafood, complemented by fresh lobsters, seasonal oysters, and a decadent foie gras station.
