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.
Kam’s Roast is proud to announce the launch of their brand-new 75-seater outlet at Jewel Changi Airport. This marks the first time the celebrated Kam’s Roast Goose brand, which hails from Hong Kong, is opening an outlet in an airport setting.

The Roast Duck Travel Gift Pack, which comprises the restaurant’s signature roast duck, is an exquisite travel gift pack that travellers can bring on their flight journeys. The cured sausages — lean pork, goose liver, or mixed flavours — will also be available in boxes so travellers can enjoy them back at home or gift them as souvenirs.
Local coffee-roaster, Liberty Coffee, has set-up a new coffee bar and retail space at 387 Jalan Besar.
They also have a roastery on Mactaggart Road (by appointment only) and the roastery is fully-licensed by the AVA, allowing them to supply wholesale coffee to cafes, corporate offices, hotels and home brewers!
Liberty Coffee sources a wide range of beans – from single-origins for slow brews to extract their fine nuances, to coffees prized for the balance they bring to espresso blends. These coffees come from diverse regions, such as the Central America (e.g. Guatemala), Africa (e.g. Ethiopia, Kenya) and Asia (e.g. Indonesia). Through their quality products and delivering on their promises time after time, they are achieving their mission to elevate your coffee supply!
Common Man Stan, a newly opened outlet by Common Man Coffee Roasters in the Singapore CBD is a maturing of their ideas around what a café can offer, how they represent coffee as a unique product in itself and who they would like to engage with as they progress in their mission to be a Champion for Specialty Coffee in this region.
They want what they do to celebrate the relationships formed throughout the journey between bean and cup – from the farmers and millers to baristas and drinkers.
You can expect some of your favourites from their 22 Martin Road outlet's menu plus some new dishes that they have created especially for the outlet, reflecting the vibe of the new neighbourhood. Where possible, they have incorporated local produce into their dishes, proudly working with Citizen Farm, Kuhlburra Fish, Tiong Bahru Bakery and Nurti-nest Honey to name a few.
This is all set amidst a sleek backdrop of the cafe, which combines natural textures of wood and rattan, marble and raw cement brought together with a touch of gold. They hope this reflects both CMCR's history and also their goals for the future.

The good people of Selfish Gene Café (SGC) are proud to announce the opening of Selfish Gene Patisserie (SGP). Located on level 2 above the café at 40 Craig Road, SGP is a patisserie with a difference – they serve plated desserts focusing on familiar flavours with modern presentation.
During the conceptualisation of SGP, their challenge was to present themselves in a new improved concept, but yet to retain their core culinary philosophy of homemade, quality food that appeals not only to the palate but also to a sense of familiarity. Finally, they decided to develop their core strength in making things from scratch and move their existing pastry preparation upstairs. In doing so, everything seemed to fall into place and SGP was born. SGP will operate independently from SGC as the concept and style of service differs. SGP will offer table service and present more interaction between the patisserie and customer.
After several months of testing and recipe development, SGP is proud to present seven different plated desserts. The desserts menu is ordered in increasing intensity of flavour starting with the light & fruity and leading to the more intense & robust ones. Some of the mentionable desserts include a Japanese inspired Soya which harmonises soya ingredients with tofu cheesecake, red beans, homemade mochi, red miso caramel and green tea ice-iream. There is also the Ginger featuring warm candied ginger pudding topped with a luscious sticky toffee and accompanied caramel ice-cream. All cakes and ice-creams/sorbets are made in-house.
SGP will serve as an event space for private/corporate events, meetings and product launches. In addition, they hope to be able to do pop-up dinners with guest chefs in the near future. And so, selfish Gene continues to evolve.
