Jam at Siri House
Time Out says
Ever wondered what it'd be like to dine in a luxurious condo owned by Bangkok's super-rich? Jam at Siri House gives you a taste of that experience – all without leaving Singapore. The 42-seat restaurant is an intimate space that houses an eclectic range of furniture from mid-century antiques and dazzling chandeliers to plush lounge sets dressed in bright handwoven Jim Thompson silks. It's a partnership between a team of chefs and one of Thailand's largest property developers, Sansiri, which also showcases Thai art, design and goods that you can take home to spruce up your place.
Settle into one of its many velvet-draped seats and expect to be blown away by food that escapes narrow definition. The Chicken in a Biscuit ($12), harks back to one chef Ming Tan's – formerly of Lolla and Park Bench Deli –favourite childhood snacks. He elevates it by smearing ginger and garlic cream cheese over a chicken fat cookie that's topped with crispy chicken skin. As evidenced by the cookie, the food at Jam at Siri House is playful, fun to eat and outrageously delicious. The spicy potatoes ($16) are Hasselback potatoes covered in mala mayo, crispy beef lardons and parmesan; the pappardelle ($33) utilises prawn and lobster heads to make an intoxicating bisque-like sauce that's tossed in freshly made pasta and finished with smoked mussels and a roasted tiger prawn; and the cod ($38) is a novel take on traditional Chinese steamed fish– Chilean seabass is slow cooked till flakey and paired with a delicate mushroom dashi and Asari clams to make for a light yet satisfying main course.
Don't skip dessert 'cos the ones you'll find here aren't heavy on the palate – or a full stomach. The pavlova ($17) features an airy meringue filled with yuzu curd and topped with segments of fresh orange and grapefruit – and to tie the acidic and sweet elements together, the dessert is finished with a quenelle of sour cream ice cream.
