Set in a row of shophouses in Singapore’s colorful Chinatown and restored under designer Anouska Hempel, gold is strongly highlighted the lobby, overlooking black-framed glasses of Duxton’s urban sprawl. Yellow Pot at Six Senses Duxton has revolutionized Chinese cuisine through its commitment to sustainability and fresh, organic ingredients —a good analogy for the recent food scene.
In Singapore, people talked about food. The food they had yesterday, the food they want tomorrow…
I will praise Chef Sebastian Goh for his “innovate and authentic skills to Chinese cuisine’s detail”. There’s a passionate pursuit of clean and healthy Chinese classic dishes. I checked in for a dinner, the meal begun with juicy and bursting chilled organic vine-ripened tomatoes ($8++). What a refreshing appetizer to start off!
There was a five minutes of fame over the super special fried lion’s mane mushrooms ($16). It was both meaty and light.
The crispy duck ($36++) was totally unforgettable, bringing with a myriad of flavors.
The Yellow Pot menu features quality, sustainability-certified ingredients including seasonal line-caught tiger prawns, super-locally farmed Kühlbarra Barramundi and grass-fed premium beef.
The steamed Kühlbarra Barramundi ($32++) was well covered with ginger-scallion pesto. It’s probably the best highlight of the evening.
Wok-seared organic grass-fed beef tenderloin ($38++) with a lot of focus on taste and texture.
I have only one answer to the common Cantonese greeting of “Have you eaten?” If you’ve yet to try the food at Yellow Pot, you will have to try!
