Candlenut is the first Peranakan (a blend of Chinese, Malay and Indonesian cultures) restaurant in the world to win a Michelin star. Chef Malcom Lee elevates his Straits-Chinese culinary roots – passed on by his mother and grandmother – to new heights with inventive twists on curries and stir fries. Combinations of one-bite dishes give diners plenty of options, alongside an omakase tasting menu, as well as à la carte. Buah keluak (a poisonous fruit made edible by fermentation) ice-cream, Valrhona chocolate, chilli and warm chocolate espuma defines his style with aplomb.
