The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore’s signature Cantonese restaurant, Summer Pavilion has earned its first Michelin Star in the inaugural Michelin Guide Singapore 2016. It is the only hotel Chinese restaurant 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.
Summer Pavilion is helmed by Chef Cheung Siu Kong, who has been with the restaurant since 2003. In 2014, he was appointed Chinese Executive Chef, and under his stewardship, has propelled the restaurant to even greater heights. Following an extensive transformation in late 2015, Summer Pavilion now boasts brand new contemporary interiors, including six exquisite private dining rooms.
“My cooking philosophy is simple. I believe that the key to creating authentic and exquisite Cantonese dishes is through modest cooking techniques which bring out the natural flavours of the ingredients. Having been in the industry for more than 25 years, my passion is fueled whenever I see the smiles on the faces of guests after they taste my creations,” said Chef Cheung.
In celebration of winning this prestigious accolade, Summer Pavilion has launched “Michelin Star” lunch and dinner set 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. Priced from SGD 88, the “Michelin Star” set menus will be available from 22 July to 30 September 2016. Please refer to Appendix A for the set menus.
