Contemporary dining that serves flavours of rich roots
with an approach that is all progressive
Celina is a fashionable cook and her life story includes stints in private banking, running a gastro bar and hosting supper clubs. Her kitchen is her lab and her aim is to give local flavours an interesting twist.
At this Signature Experience, she shares the stage with one of her earliest gastro bar customers, Nikki, who is a thespian and international presenter seen on the likes of Fox Sports and Nat Geo People’s “Food Files.” Also present might be Celina’s husband, Kok, an electrical engineer, who if not travelling for work, can be found tending the garden, cooking, and entertaining you with stories of past and present Singapore.
Past the hawker centres and Michelin-starred restaurants, this Singapore home offers the flavours of rich roots with an approach that is all progressive. Enjoy drinks on the garden terrace with a canapé before progressing to the dining room for a meal from Celina’s gastronomic past and modern Singapore family.
Dishes served might include home cured pork, preserved fruit, spicy salads and slow cooked curries. As Celina emphasizes local ingredients and cooking techniques, the menu changes according to what inspires her.
A contemporary home built for entertaining, guests will enjoy plenty of space to mingle and enjoy the entertainment that is part of Celina and Nikki’s signature experience.
The home is situated along Upper Thompson Road, with direct access to Lower Peirce Reservoir (Singapore’s second-oldest reservoir) and the original Singapore Grand Prix track. Guests can take in surrounding views of mature forests, rubber trees and oil palms that recall the days when Singapore was covered with plantations.
We encourage guests to take a self-guided stroll along the 900-metre boardwalk before joining your Hosts for sundowners.
