2015: Tao @ InterContinental

This restaurant is a sanctuary of serene sophistication, with a lavish centrepiece of ceiling lights that conjure an under-the-stars impression, bearing down on walls with a pink peach blossom motif (‘Tao’ is Mandarin for peach) and shelves with ornate teapots assembled from across Asia.

Executive chef Wong Lian You works miracles with masterpieces like Peking Duck with black truffles, oven-baked cod fillet with pomelo and plum sauce, and warm sponge cake with green tea ice cream and chocolate sauce, which illustrate how Chinese cooking can be winningly complemented by contemporary elements. 

If you’re visiting in a group, reserve one of the ravishing private rooms decorated in the fashion of the Han, Song, Tang and other Chinese dynasties. Many thanks to Tao for hosting this meal.
