WOK°15–Great Chinese food with a marina view!

WOK˚15 Kitchen - Chilli Crab $55 per kg (1)

If you’re looking for a good Chinese/Cantonese restaurant with a view, you might just want to put the five month old WOK°15 at ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove on your radar. Helmed by Executive Chef Chum Kar Ho, WOK°15 aims to serve exquisite Cantonese dishes such as seafood and dim sum dishes in an artful presentation. Wong Ah Yoke from the Straits Times had given WOK°15 the thumbs up, so I was quite keen to pay this restaurant a visit despite it not being so close to my home.

Thankfully, and thoughtfully, all diners to WOK°15 get free entry into Sentosa as well as free parking at ONE°15, so make sure you ask for the entry letter into Sentosa when you’re making your reservation.

Avenue Joffre at Sentosa (Restaurant)

If you’re looking for a restaurant to try out good and authentic Shanghainese/Sze Chuan/ Cantonese food, you might just want to check out Avenue Joffre at Sentosa this month. Avenue Joffre will be hosting legendary Culinary Master Chef Zhou Yuan-Chang where he will present his award-winning signature dishes for a limited time only until 31 May 2016!

Chef Zhou is regarded as one of the most famous chefs in China. He has won awards including the China Golden Chef award, and the “Middle Age Cooking Elite” award of the first “Champion Cup” in Shanghai. His dishes have been praised by movers and shakers such as China National People’s Congress Wu Bang Guo and former USA Vice-President Walter Mondale. Chef Zhou deploys authentic but rarely practiced Shanghainese cooking methods to create natural flavours and textures in the dishes that he serves. Just in case you find the name “Avenue Joffre” familiar, this is the former name of Huai Hai Road in Shanghai during the 1930s.

We had the pleasure of sampling a number of Chef Zhou’s dishes. While the dishes may look like what you would find in many Chinese restaurants, we soon found out that there’s more to it than meets the eye. Here are the dishes I enjoyed the most.

Avenue Joffre - Deep-fried chicken wing stuffed with birds' nest $15

Deep-fried chicken wing stuffed with birds’ nest $15

This might just be my first time eating stuffed chicken wing, much less one stuffed with birds’ nest, although apparently this is a classic Cantonese dish. Love how the crispy skin complements the delicate bird’s nest stuffing!

Avenue Joffre - Simmered Mud Crab with Asparagus Lettuce in clay pot

Simmered Mud Crab with Asparagus Lettuce in clay pot (market price)

Absolutely loved the taste of this soup that I had at least 3 servings. Those green strands are not noodles but asparagus lettuce shredded into thin strands to act as noodles. A lot of knife skills going on here. They were the perfect vehicle to soak up the aromatic mud crab broth. A must order!

Sentosa Siloso Beach BBQ

In conjunction with Sentosa’s 40th anniversary celebrations, I was invited to attend Sentosa’s BBQ by the Beach pre-launch party last Thursday. You can attend too but you have to be quick because this special BBQ will only be on until 22 July 2012.

Venue : Siloso Beach (Between COASTES and Azzura Beach Club) Take the Sentosa Monorail from the 3rd floor of VivoCity and stop at Beach Station, the last stop.

Apart from my company family day held at Sentosa Wave House and KM8 which has since closed down, I don’t believe I’ve had ever dined on the beach, at least not under the moonlight! In fact, as my guest and I arrived very early, we managed to snag a table on the jetty. So we were actually dining amidst the lapping waves, definitely a first for me. It was a really breezy evening and I was thankful to have brought along a hair clip or I would have been like a mad woman. Scroll down further to see pictures of the Sentosa BBQ by the Beach party, complete with crooning guitarists!
