Alvin Leung takes over heritage building The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore's main restaurant. Known for his out-of-the-box creations at Bo Innovation in Hong Kong, the Demon Chef applies that same creativity to Singaporean cuisine at 15 Stamford. There's laksa ($32) amped up with housemade dried shrimp floss, tiger prawn tempura and tea-smoked quail eggs as well as a hefty chargrilled bak kut teh pork chop ($38) marinated with the same herbs and spices that give the iconic soup its distinctive taste. Served with compressed watermelon and angelica root barbecue sauce, the tender pork chops are a crowd pleaser.
But it's not just local flavours on display. There are grilled Hokkaido scallops ($12) served with adobo butter and Boston lobster with mangosteen, tomato and spicy Thai dressing ($58). We don't think the combination works, fans of Leung's avant-garde style of cooking might appreciate the left-field creation.
