Chinese New Year 2018 – Tamarind Hill, literally a hidden gem in Labrador Nature Reserve

[Media Invite]

Situated atop the densely forested Labrador Nature Reserve, and yet only a 10 minute walk from Labrador MRT Station, the restaurant Tamarind Hill qualifies to be called a hidden gem. When you arrive at the restaurant, it’s hard not to be wowed by the charming colonial bungalow that has been decked out to exude a rustic-luxe Asian flair, amidst vast greenery. It really feels as if you are cocooned away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Singapore.

The bungalow may seem small from the outside, partly because it is obscured by all the plants. But once you open the main door, you will surely be wowed by this imposing and grand looking bar area. This is probably the most instagrammable spot in the entire restaurant!

The restaurant serves traditional and contemporary Siamese cuisine, and is led by Executive Chef Wanthana Nikonsaen who hails from a small village near Laos, North-East of Thailand. But I was there to try the Lunar New Year menu, so I was keen to see how this menu might be different from all the Chinese New Year menus I have tried in the past few weeks.

For $88/pax, Tamarind Hill will be offering a 4 course set menu comprising fixed dishes of appetisers, soup, mains and desserts. If you want to have Yu Sheng / Lohei, that’s an additional $38 (small for 3 – 4 pax) or $68 (large for 7 – 8 pax). Check out the photos of the food below. If you have the chance, sit outdoors in the al-fresco area because the greenery all around is just so pretty.
