It’s beyond us how chef Tan Yong Hua finds time out of his TV cooking schedules to open up shop. Nonetheless, this modern black-and-fuchsia space on Joo Chiat’s restaurant row is a welcome addition: touted as the successor to the outbound Private Affairs (relocated to 25 Boon Tat Street), the hot-stone chicken with black fungus, dried lily buds and flower mushrooms is said to be superb ($20), as is the mirin-flavoured pumpkin soup with lobster meat served in a mini pumpkin ($16 per person). His signature lychee-wood-smoked Peking duck (half, $38) is a meaty choice too.
Main courses $6-$52.
