When I first checked out Madame Fan at The NCO Club, I was completely won over by the brilliantly-executed dishes, the ambiance and more importantly, the juxtaposition of old world nostalgia and new world charm.

Madame Fan at NCO Club - A Distinctive but Authentic Chinese Fine-dining Restaurant

The NCO Club is one of the latest lifestyle destinations in Singapore this year and it houses four distinctive F&B concepts - Madame Fan (Chinese restuarant), Cool Cats (jazz bar), Fish Pool (Champagne and Oyster Bar) as well as Stags' Room (wine bar). Located on 32 Beach Road, The NCO Club is located in between the JW Marriott Singapore South Beach as well as the distinctive Raffles Singapore.

Chinese New Year (2018) at One Michelin Star Summer Pavilion - The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore

The Summer Pavilion at The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore needs no introduction - it was the first Cantonese restaurant in a hotel to receive One Michelin star in Singapore and the food has always been consistently good. I have been to the restaurant on multiple occasions (usually in the day) and the lighting has always been great but unfortunately this time, I was stuck with a dinner tasting of the Chinese New Year menu and therefore the images do not do the food any justice.

Chinese New Year (2018) at Jiang-Nan Chun - Four Seasons Hotel Singapore

When Jiang-Nan Chun at the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore was re-introduced approximately two years ago, it brought along a wave of new dishes that combines the best of Cantonese-cuisine with a modern interpretation. One of the most memorable dishes for me personally was the Signature Peking Duck that is served with caviar even. This year, with a new chef at its helm, the culinary team over at Jiang-Nan Chun has once again reinvented itself to serve not only delicious food but one that is intricately-plated as well.
