The Orchard Cafe Singapore – Heritage Food Hunt with Chef Bryce Li

Singaporeans are crazy about local food, so much so that it is a MUST HAVE in every hotel buffet. The Orchard Cafe Singapore, an icon of Orchard Hotel Singapore for three decades commands a loyal following of fans who always return for their favourite local fare. As part of Orchard Hotel Singapore’s enhancement programme, The Orchard Cafe will be reopening after its refurbishment on 19 Nov 2018. Of course, the buffet spread has been given an upgrade too and you can be sure to expect lots of tasty creations by Executive Chef Bryce Li and his capable team.

In fact, while The Orchard Cafe Singapore was undergoing refurbishment, Chef Bryce took the chance to try the local fare all over Singapore’s hawker centres. I was honoured to be able to join him on his visit to Newton Food Centre to check out two local favourite dishes which is the BBQ Chicken wings and the BBQ Sambal Stingray for inspiration on what to create at The Orchard Café.

Below are the food (BBQ Chicken Wings and Sambal Stingray) from different stalls which we tried on that day. 

During the food hunt, Chef Bryce shared with us what he likes about the dishes from the different stalls he had tried and he shared that he was going to use all this inspiration for his upcoming dishes at The Orchard Cafe. I’m sure you can’t wait to try Chef Bryce’s enhanced version of the BBQ Grilled dishes and tasty, spicy sambals too!

When the restaurant reopens on 19 November 2018, you can look forward to a refreshed buffet experience called “A SIGNATURE CLASS BUFFET” featuring:

  1. Golden favourites – Braised Pork Belly Bee Hoon in Opah Leaf Pocket, Asian Noodles like Laksa, Thai Boat Noodles, Prawn Mee, Roast Meats selection from award-winning Hua Ting restaurant and Charcoal Grilled Satay.
