The Ritz-Carlton, Singapore’s signature Cantonese restaurant, Summer Pavilion, has earned its first Michelin star in the inaugural Michelin Guide Singapore 2016. It is the only Chinese restaurant in a hotel in Singapore to receive this accolade.
“I am thrilled that Summer Pavilion has garnered a one-star rating from the world-renowned Michelin Guide, an achievement that demonstrates our commitment to culinary excellence in a city that is well known as a gourmand’s paradise. This recognition would not have been possible without our ladies and gentlemen in the restaurant operations and culinary teams, who are dedicated towards crafting a memorable and exceptional dining experience for all our guests,” said Peter Mainguy, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore.
Chef Cheung Siu Kong has been with the restaurant since 2003. In 2014, he was appointed Chinese Executive Chef and underwent a relentless drive toward culinary perfection to propel the restaurant to Michelin heights. Following an extensive transformation in late 2015, Summer Pavilion became a contemporary restaurant with six private dining rooms.
In celebration of winning this prestigious accolade, Summer Pavilion has launched special menus which feature some of Chef Cheung’s signature dishes. These include the barbecued Iberico pork with honey sauce, marinated South African abalone with roasted sesame dressing, double-boiled sea whelk soup with fish maw and chicken served in a whole coconut, poached rice with lobster and sautéed diced Japanese wagyu beef.
