Heavenly Peranakan flavours ascend at The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore as Celebrity Chef Philip Chia, the Culinary Director of Golden Dragon Cuisine and Culture, and Singapore’s custodian of Peranakan food takes over The Private Room of 15 Stamford with a lunch and dinner menu that will spotlight Peranakan cuisine at its best, bolstered by the quality ingredients and service of Kempinski.
Hosted as a small private dining concept of no more than 12 persons per session, the menu will be prepared live in front of guests by Chef Philip himself. The menu comes with a specially curated sake pairing to make it a dining experience to remember.
A Joo Chiat native born and bred, Chef Philip was already toiling in the kitchens by age of 6. At 17, he became the youngest finalist ever in the history of the prestigious Sime Darby’s cooking competition judged by the late Mrs Lee Chin Koon (the late mother of Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew).
Chef Philip has done stints at well-known hotels such as Phoenix Hotel, Fairmont Singapore, Grand Copthorne Waterfront, Hotel Ramada Chao Fah in Phuket, Thailand, and most notably The Fullerton Bay Hotel where he has an annual showcase. Backed by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), he was chosen to represent Singapore in the international food exposition held in Yokohama, Japan. He is also one of the few chefs to ever receive a Letter of Commendation from the legendary Chef Otto Weibel, the President of the Singapore Chefs’ Association (SCA).
