Fresh from a multimillion-dollar enhancement, Orchard Hotel Singapore’s iconic restaurant, The Orchard Cafe, returns with a vibrant and chic brand new décor characterising the colourful cultures of our island’s heritage ethnic cuisines which are served up in abundance at a Signature Class buffet spread.
“The Orchard Cafe has been a steadfast culinary icon of Orchard Hotel Singapore for almost three decades; a beloved space known for culinary flair and great attention to detail. Our dedicated team, headed by newly-appointed Executive Chef Bryce Li, look forward to creating delicious memories for loyal fans as well as diners discovering the restaurant for the first time,” shares Mr Byron Chong, General Manager of Orchard Hotel Singapore.
Elevated, Heritage-Inspired Cuisine
Heeding the national call for keeping Singapore’s unique heritage of ethnic dishes alive, The Orchard Cafe’s all-new Signature Class buffet presents a revival of golden favourites – many of which are fast-disappearing from Singapore’s foodscapes.
Take Tau Kwa Pau, a classic example of a popular side dish often found at Teochew Duck Rice stalls up till the 1990s. Today, few are aware of this delicious pocket of deep-fried Tau Kwa stuffed with overflowing chopped egg, fried yam, cucumber and fish cake, served with braised duck sauce.
At The Orchard Cafe, diners will get to savour this Teochew-style delight at a newly-installed open kitchen, enhanced by our chefs with a luxurious topping of specialty Pu-er Tea Smoked Roast Duck from the award-winning Hua Ting Restaurant. Fans of roast meats will also find a mouth-watering selection of dishes on rotation, including Roast Crispy Kurobuta Pork Belly served with Egg Fried Rice and Braised Soya Sauce Chicken accompanied by Fragrant Chicken Rice.
A Signature Class Icon
In elevating The Orchard Cafe to new heights, Executive Chef Bryce Li and his team have curated a hand-picked buffet selection worthy of its Signature Class direction in all aspects: from the seafood on ice featuring premium Alaskan King Crabs, Fresh US Oysters and Blue-Lip Mussels, to a colourful, eye-catching salad bar elegantly lined with individually-prepared jars of superfood-rich salad options, as well as upscale versions of heritage-inspired local dishes such as Wok-Fried Fragrant Truffle Egg Fried Rice, Lobster Roti John and Chilled Jasmine Scented Tau Suan with Coconut Milk.
Tasteful morsels of house-cured, marinated meats are also a new feature of the revamped buffet. Diners can indulge in surprising taste pairings such as Salmon Cured with Laksa Leaves, whilst a dedicated area for Western-style carved meats will showcase a rotation of premium beef and pork cuts alongside seasonal greens.
Complementing the exceptional cuisine is a revitalised and contemporary ambience featuring soothing tones from a stylish, tropical-inspired palette of green and grey tones. A brand-new layout also incorporates a chic indoor bar and al fresco seating amidst lush landscaped greenery – a cosy haven to dine and savour sips from a menu of curated cocktails and wines.
The Orchard Cafe also continues its legacy as an outstanding all-day-dining destination, with a hearty Breakfast Buffet spread setting an energetic pace each morning and an a la carte menu of tasteful best-in-class contemporary dishes available throughout the day.
