Mitzo Restaurant & Bar sets out in the second half of 2017 to bring local gastronomes a taste of its well-loved progressive Cantonese cuisine—matched with the culinary sensibilities of Singapore’s top chefs—through a series of collaborative dinners, ‘Friends of Mitzo’, hosted by Mitzo’s Executive Head Chef Nicky Ng.
Forming this year ‘Friends of Mitzo’ collaborators are three present-day vanguards of Singaporean cuisine—LG Han of Labyrinth, Petrina Loh of Morsels, and celebrity chef Shen Tan. Each chef is set to helm three epicurean evenings alongside Chef Nicky in this cross culinary crusade.
“We’ve done well in carving out a niche for modern Cantonese cuisine. By collaborating with these chefs—each innovators in their craft—I hope to bring new dimensions to our offerings,” says Chef Nicky.
Kicking off the series in July is neo-Sin pioneer and chef-owner of newly-minted one Michelin star restaurant, Chef LG Han of Labyrinth, who will be lending his mastery of the five basic taste sensations—sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami—to complement Chef Nicky’s modern Cantonese fare.
Held across three consecutive evenings from 25 to 27 July 2017, both chefs will come together to put forth a special six-course collaborative set menu for an intriguing meeting of styles, as Chef Han harmonizes modern inventive cuisine creatively with the contemporary Cantonese flavours of Chef Nicky.
Savour the unexpected through dishes executed in contemporary techniques such as a jointly constructed Dim sum platter of Sea Urchin Custard Bun & Truffles Shrimp Dumpling, a luxurious Abalone Tart with Labyrinth homemade Oyster sauce, and an Elevated Fish Congee
served with sea bass and ginger espuma, among others.
“My collaboration with Mitzo has been a long time coming. Chef Nicky has been steadily building a reputation in Singapore for modernising Cantonese dining; keeping things interesting without sacrificing its flavours and soul. Similarly, I started the neo-Sin movement to do just that,” affirms Chef Han, who was recently lauded with his first Michelin star. “I am excited at the prospect of combining both our culinary agendas, and am confident that the end result will leave diners visibly impressed.”
The first ‘Friends of Mitzo’ collaboration, featuring Chef LG Han of Labyrinth, will take place across three evenings from Tuesday to Thursday, 25 to 27 July 2017, priced at S$118++ for a six-course dinner and $168++ per person with cocktail pairing.
