The Emmanuel Stroobant Group is proud to announce the opening of Shoukouwa, the premiere fine dining Japanese restaurant under the Group's stable of restaurants.
At Shoukouwa, our master chefs specialise in making the perfect sushi — a delicate balance
of the quality of the fish, proportion and temperature. Ideally, the perfect sushi should
be consumed within seconds of being served, with either chopsticks or clean hands.
Chef Emmanuel Stroobant launches a new stand-in concept of a luxury French brasserie at Quayside Isle @ Sentosa Cove.
Born over an after-work social get-together by the Saint Pierre team, Jean Doré takes its name from the Francophone version of John Dory. John Dory is also known as Saint Pierre or Peter's Fish; legend has it that the dark spot on the fish's flank is the thumbprint of St Peter, the patron saint of fishermen.
Serving classical French brasserie fare, Jean Doré takes over the spectacular view of the marina at Quayside Isle. Relax with a glass of aperitif before savouring the delicious food prepared lovingly by the culinary team there.
After taking his restaurant from a posh setting to a more casual one, Belgian chef Emmanuel Stroobant is returning to his fine-dining roots.
The 47-year-old chef's French restaurant, Saint Pierre, will open at One Fullerton in March, taking over a 2,000 sq ft space vacated by the Butter Factory nightclub.
At the new space, Saint Pierre will seat 30 diners, a stark contrast to the 100 seats in Sentosa. Its Central Mall location had 60 seats.
The menu at the revamped Saint Pierre will also be reduced. There will be no a la carte menu, just two six-course menus and two 10-course menus for dinner, including a vegetarian option each.
Some of the offerings include lobster with clams and milk rice; carrot with orange, cacao and tonka bean; and a chocolate dessert with vanilla and passionfruit. He also uses Asian ingredients, such as tamarind, ginger, kaffir lime and lemongrass.
The chef says the dishes have been streamlined to focus on key ingredients, and laughs about writing a much shorter menu now compared with a long list of ingredients before.
And unlike many fine-dining establishments that do not welcome children, the father of two girls aged six and four has a special kids' menu to encourage children to dine out, teach them fine-dining etiquette as well as educate them on flavours and where their food comes from.
Founded by acclaimed chef Emmanuel Stroobant and Roxan Villareal, Rocks Urban Bar + Grill has reopened at The Sail @ Marina Bay, in the heart of the central business district (CBD). Located on the second floor of the building, its view of Marina Bay and the city skyline, and convenient location make it a great place for a smart, but unfussy, business lunch or a quiet dinner. There is also a function space, good for private dining or a cocktail reception.
The restaurant has understated contemporary aesthetics, furnished in elegant neutral colours, and has an interesting highly textured feature wall made using a countless number of stones! Near the entrance, the bar stocks up on a wide range of wines from all over the world, cocktails, beer and more.
When it comes to the food, you can expect quality, as with all Emmanuel Stroobant Group establishments. From fresh seafood, such as freshly shucked oysters and scallop carpaccio, and starters — try the signature crab cake and steak tartatre — to main dishes that include grilled meats, fish, wood-fired pizzas and more, you get variety as well.
The latest brainchild of Celebrity Chef Emmanuel Stroobant at Ngee Ann City focuses on fresh, artisanal produce, with more vegetables and fruits, and less meat, as he believes in the adage that a healthy outside starts from the inside!
