Named after the road in Shanghai’s French Concession during the ‘30s and ‘40s, Avenue Joffre, located along Festive Walk at Resorts World Sentosa serves a variety of Chinese cuisine, and is led by four master chefs. Executive chef Ip Chi Kwong handles Cantonese cuisine, master chef Gu Xiao Rong is in charge of Sichuan cuisine, while chef Zhou Yuan Chang oversees the Shanghainese cuisine, and master chef Ge Xian’e works with the restaurant team to create new dim sum dishes. Occasionally they do promotions where they invite chefs to cook up cuisine from other parts of China including Zhejiang and Beijing.
Signature dishes include Cantonese doubled-boiled chicken consommé with sea whelk and morel mushroom ($28/person, $230/pot), Sichuan poached sliced red snapper in chilli oil ($38/small, $59/medium, $78/large) and roasted Peking duck ($80/duck).
If you're there for yum cha, Avenue Joffre incorporates both Shanghainese and Cantonese cooking techniques in creating their dim sum. Expect the usual favourites of har gao ($6), xiao long bao ($7) and pan-fried pork buns filled with soup ($7), but all made with a thicker skin.
