Chef Jimo’s Recommendation
The Imperial Tower – Enjoy authentic fresh global ingredients of selected Marlborough Oysters, Spot Prawns, Maine Lobster, Abalone, White Shrimp, Jade Whelk, Alaskan Crab Legs and Baeri Caviar. This luxurious seafood tower brings you nothing but the most indulgent gastronomic experience.
Black Truffle Pizza – Considered as the diamond of the culinary world, black truffle is a delicate ingredient that brings a characteristic aroma to the rich cheeses used in our signature pizza. This magical combination leaves a unique taste that lingers on the palate.
Spaghetti All’astice – A recreation of Niccolo Kitchen’s celebrated signature dish, ‘Spaghetti All’astice 2.0,’ uses fresh pepper seasoning with an enhanced exclusive lobster broth that brings fresh excitement to your favourite dish.
Mr. Ryan, Chinese Executive Chef, studied under Hong Kong celebrity chef, Mr. Leung Chi Meng, and previously worked at Hakkasan Restaurant at Atlantis Dubai. Cooking is like solving riddles. It should be entered into with all creative methodologies, or not at all.
Chef Ryan’s Recommendation
Signature Wok-Fried M5 Wagyu Beef – Enjoy premium M5 wagyu beef in a creative dish. The renowned beef is cooked with dried chilli, Sichuan peppercorn, fresh mint and Japanese mustard to bring out a distinct flavour that intrigues the taste buds.
Double-Boiled Beef Broth with Tiger Fungus – Slow boiling beef for eight hours enriches the soup base and perfectly preserves the natural aroma of beef broth. Sink into the Luxurious Tiger fungus of Yunnan along with beef and oyster meat that deliver a firm texture and mellow taste.
16 Minutes Simmered Eel & Basil – Chef Ryan interprets the classic Huaiyang dish of tasty eel creatively with a famous Cantonese pot-cooking technique. The simmered eel is prepared with fresh basil and house-made sauce to highlight its tenderness and mouth-watering aroma.
