Chef Han Liguang champions local cuisine with his rendition of mod-Sin fare, showcasing nostalgic influences from food he grew up eating
In a country where local food often means hawker food, chef-owner Han Liguang has been reimagining local flavours and dishes since 2014. The current tasting menu makes heroes of locally farmed greens and seafood to reflect Han’s roots and food memories. Signature dishes include the refreshing local flower chilli crab with ice cream and a nuanced version of Garden City Rojak with 14 types of local herbs and stingless bee honey from Batam. The Ode to Cairnhill Steakhouse course features Tochigi A4 Wagyu striploin with Hainanese red wine sauce, and was inspired by the chef’s grandfather’s steakhouse that operated in the 1960s to the 1990s. Tucked away in a corner of Esplanade Mall, the restaurant’s dim, dark interiors contrast with the powerful spotlight directed at the table, which is a great setting for photos. The wine list is concise but smart.
