Taikoo Lane Hotpot, is a restaurant that doles out authentic Sichuan and Cantonese hotpot broths and offerings! The concept is a brainchild of Chengdu Restaurant, which is known for its mouth-watering Sichuan cuisine. Taikoo Lane boasts a mixture of individual pots and large shared pots, so solo diners or large groups can enjoy a hotpot session anytime they have a craving.
Taikoo Lane’s version of the Sichuan Spicy Broth follows the traditional method of using beef tallow instead of oil. The beef tallow-based mala broth is much more flavourful than the oil-based renditions other hotpot restaurants in Singapore serve.
Chengdu Green Pepper Broth is another Taikoo Lane special Mala broth. Taking inspiration from Chengdu Restaurant’s best-selling Fish with Green Peppercorn Soup, the green peppercorn broth is a brand-new offering specially created by the Taikoo Lane team. Peppercorn oil and green peppercorns are Sichuan specialities, and the restaurant imports the ingredients from the province.
For diners who prefer non-spicy broths, there are offerings available such as Fish Soup Broth with Fresh Milk and Collagen Nourishing Pork Bone Soup. Both of these soups will appeal to ardent appreciators of Cantonese dishes. Able to alleviate the symptoms of excessive dampness in the internal system of our body, the nourishing fish soup broth is made with specially selected fresh fish and salmon bones. The gelatinous pork bone broth is superbly tasty and moreish — a medley of pork bones, whole chicken, pig skin and spices are cooked for over seven hours to achieve a rich and milky consistency.
Taikoo Lane offers a smorgasbord of unique hotpot ingredients. A DIY dish, the Lobster Noodles pays tribute to Hong Kong’s popular version. Simply immerse the crustacean and noodles into the broth, then mix the cooked items with the special sauce and condiments and voila! If so inclined, cook the seafood and noodles separately in different broths so that they can soak up different flavours for a truly unique dish. Living up to its name, the Magical Growing Mushrooms promises a culinary spectacle. Arranged artfully in a garden of lettuce, tomatoes and eggs, the enoki mushrooms will grow taller before your very eyes as you water it!

Led by award-winning Chef Fung Chi Keung, Kai Duck by Kai Garden at Ngee Ann City introduces modern diners to a refreshingly new concept in contemporary Cantonese casual dining.
In keeping with the faster-paced lifestyle adopted by today’s millennials, Chef Fung’s innovations with his Cantonese-style roast duck is a classic example of this thinking, together with other innovative dishes that can now be enjoyed by parties as small as two.
Although the restaurant prides itself in its more casual, relaxed atmosphere, the ambience never-the-less evokes the decadence of an emperor’s courtyard, which is juxtaposed with its central location on the 5th floor of Ngee Ann City on Orchard Road.
Hong Kong-born owner and Group Executive Chef Fung Chi Keung of Kai Garden and Kai Duck is an established and sought-after name among discerning diners of traditional Cantonese cuisine.
His 30-year culinary career has taken him through Hong Kong’s local Chinese restaurants and Singapore’s Mandarin Orchard. In 2005, as the Group Executive Chef for Paradise Group, he launched the group’s first fine dining restaurant, Taste Paradise, which won multiple awards over consecutive years. Chef Fung also won several awards for the group, including a Gold Medal at the Food and Hospitality Asia 2012 - Imperial Challenge.
His dream of building his own brand and eventually a chain of Chinese restaurants to celebrate the legacy of Cantonese cuisine, is brought closer with the launch of Kai Duck. The restaurant features casual dining, and the menu features quick bites inspired by the signature Cantonese-style roast duck menu he developed for Kai Garden.
When one door closes, another opens. As renowned French patisserie Antoinette bids farewell to its Mandarin Gallery outlet, it also welcomes to its fold a gorgeous all-day dining venue perfect for indulging fresh bakes, sweet treats and savoury bites.
Newly launched in Millenia Walk, Antoinette’s latest abode offers CBD dwellers and brunch lovers the grand experience of dining the French way. Guests can choose to enjoy pastries in the Parisian chic confines, pick a cosy corner in the ‘al fresco’ area along the atrium for a spot of coffee or a meal; or simply choose from Antoinette’s wide array of treats for takeaway.
But of course, Antoinette’s arrival to Millenia Walk is accompanied by a classy entourage of Antoinette’s bistro-style dishes, breads and pastries -- both new and long-time favourites curated by chef-owner Pang Kok Keong.
Chef Pang has combined both the breakfast and sandwich menu into one and added new sandwiches such as the Sloppy Scrambled Ciabatta and Smoked Salmon. This sandwich menu - Le Menu Sandwich, will be available on weekdays from 8am - 5pm.
Apart from the Le Menu Sandwich, the all-day French bistro-style menu including soufflé pancakes and crêpes is available from 10am to 10pm, daily.
A quintessential Parisian pâtisserie, restaurant, and salon du thé that pays homage to Marie Antoinette, the last queen of France revered for her exquisite taste and lavishly indulgent love of excess, Antoinette is a venue for all things excitingly sweet and savoury. Decorated with elements inspired by the French neoclassical period, and with ornate finishing covered in carvings of garlands and ribbons, Antoinette is perfect for sophistication and luxury for dining.
