Corner House in Singapore is a wonderful colonial house located in one of the most beautiful botanical gardens in the world. It is also the working place of Jason Tan, one of the most talented chefs in South East Asia right now.
Jason Tan's cooking is of French inspiration with some Singaporean twists, extremely delicate, refined and well balanced. His forte is the sweet and sour flavors which he combines masterfully.
For our dinner on January 6th 2018, we opted for the "Gastronomic menu", served in four sequences plus the usual amuse-bouche and petit fours for 115 Euros without drinks.
From the Hokkaido scallops to the chef's interpretation of Kaya Toast (a well-known snack every kid in Singapore loves to have for breakfast or as an afternoon snack) through the New Zealand blue cod, every dish was perfectly cooked and presented, the New Zealand blue cod being one of the best fish dish we had ever tasted: it was crispy, savory and simply plain delicious.
The wine list was impressive and eclectic. Your choices range from a glass to a magnum bottle.
The service was welcoming, professional, kind and in tempo.
Jason Tan is a chef whose talent is worth making a detour to discover.
There was only one (minor) flaw in this marvelous place: the beautiful colonial house is in need of some interior refreshing, particularly the salon area and the carpet on the stairs (new carpet needed), the restrooms need to be redone and upgraded as well in order to make this Corner House the perfect destination for fine dining in Singapore.
