Thetraveljunkie.org – The best thing about going to a new country is that local people will recommend new places to see and eat. That’s exactly what we did when we went to Singapore. We found the quintessential Singaporian spirit of hygge in JUN: it was quiet and welcoming. It was pure bliss. Set in the new Capri by Fraser, China Square, JUN, aims to deliver the authentic Singapore experience through its culinary expertise.
In line with the hotel’s design-led style, this place fills itself with a chinoiserie-chic interior brought out by oriental elements and multicoloured wall art, featuring a distinctive presentation of “tradition” and “modern” created by local artists.
Highlighting the union of traditional cooking techniques paired with the freshest ingredients, JUN puts a new spin on familiar Chinese and local cuisine, promising diners a hearty feast and a visual treat.
Here’s what we ate.
Chilli Crab Rillette Kueh Pie Tee Crabmeat, Tobiko, Shredded Lettuce.
Homemade Ngoh Hiang Prawn Roll served with Plum Sauce.
Crispy Shrimp Paste Mid-wing Chicken served with Garlic Chilli Sauce.
Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup with Cordyceps flower, Radix, Red Dates and Goji Berries.
