Kris+ Gastronomy Series 2022
Not sure which is the best and most delicious Gastronomy Series deal? Here is our curated list of 6 restaurants which will bag you a bunch of miles to boot.
1. Si Chuan Dou Hua
Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant is the paragon of fine Sichuan and Cantonese cuisine in Singapore. A meal here is not just a culinary experience but an immersion into Chinese culture. Diners are regaled with superb examples of Asian cuisine as well as fantastic performances by skilled Tea Masters who combine martial arts, dance and showmanship.
Kris+ has partnered with Si Chuan Dou Hua, PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road to bring you an indulgent 7-course culinary journey (S$68 Nett per pax). A minimum of 2 diners per reservation is required to enjoy this menu.
Your taste buds begin their adventure with Roasted Duck with Marinated Jellyfish, Mushroom with Wasabi and “Chong Qing” Chilled Chicken with Spicy Bean Paste.
Each delectable pair has been carefully selected for its ability to extract complementary flavours and the result is a wonderful start to your meal.
The soup course is Double-boiled Fish Soup w Marrow Melon & Conpoy. The ingredients are absolutely top-notch and impart their flavours deliciously into the soup.
The Stir-fried Scallop with Truffle Sauce and Prawn in XO Chilli Sauce was my favourite— the scallop melted in my mouth, and the prawn was battered and flavoured just to my liking.
I was surprised that the fourth course of Pan-Fried Cod Fish in Homemade Soya Bean Crumb Sauce with Dried Scallop, Sakura Shrimps and Prawn Roe Sauce was so enjoyable. I am not the biggest fan of seafood, especially with so many varieties together but this dish balanced it out very well.
If your kids don’t eat their vegetables, the fifth course of Braised Homemade Bean Curd with Assorted Mushrooms may be the thing to change their mind. The wonderfully tender bean curd paired flawlessly with the bite of the mushrooms. The light sauce was perfect with it.
The penultimate course was Sichuan Dan Dan Noodle. The noodles were pleasantly springy— a fragrant and flavourful bowl that’s sure to fill your tummy.
Dessert was a welcome creative change in the form of Chilled Peach Resin with White Fungus, Lotus Seeds, Figs and a Deep-fried Sesame Glutinous Rice Ball. The light fruit competing with the thick texture of the rice ball was very interesting.

Delicious Western cuisine meets a modern Asian flair at Jarrell’s, an inviting retreat away from the buzz just outside the CBD. Known for its chill vibe and scrumptious fusion meals, it is one of the coolest places to kick back and indulge your sense of taste after a hard day.
In conjunction with the Kris+ Gastronomy Series, Jarrell’s is offering discerning diners a special S$45++ set menu per pax with starter, main and dessert.
There are two choices of starter, with the first being Decadence (Pan Seared Foie Gras). Take a bite and savour the combination of soft boiled egg, baby spinach, asian style mushroom ragout and balsamic reduction.
The equally appealing alternative is Cure For Hangover (Venus Clams In Superior Broth) that contains ginger, garlic, shao xing wine and chilli padi.
I haven’t had the opportunity— yet – to test its therapeutic abilities, but I can definitely say that it tastes good!
There are two mains options, too. The first is District 9 Pasta (Thai King Prawn).
Served with Tom Yum stock, lime leaf, garlic & squid ink spaghetti that really bring out the flavour of the prawns, this was an enjoyable experience.
Option 2 for your main course is the Minotaur Burger (Wagyu Beef Burger).
The patty is served in a brioche bun with kicap manis sauce, grilled onion, lettuce and tomato keeping it company.
The meat was as good as I would have imagined it could taste in such a casual setting. The sweet sauce countered the savoury meat well and the fries were simply *chef’s kiss*.
Dessert was a very serious-sounding Legacy of Eemin (Brown Sugar Sea Salt Panna Cotta).
Fortunately, the combination of black tea jelly, brown sugar crumble, sea salt foam and a shot of Baileys was much more jovial in taste. I would have had this as a starter as well, if given the choice.

Inspired by the warmth of the Mediterranean sea. That self-description by Levant is almost as tantalisingly seductive as the fare you will find inside. Its unique location atop a conservation shophouse in Tanjong Pagar affords an interesting palette of views ranging from steel and glass office buildings to squat, stoic blocky apartments.
Whichever you prefer, its combination of sun and shade, music and wind is a siren song you can’t resist for long. It’s hard to find a better setting for their Kris+ Gastronomy Series deal of Levant sharing platter for 4 (S$78 Nett).
The platter consists of Smoked Duck & Truffle Samosas with Mango Amba Sauce, Beef Kofta Sliders, Smoky Baba Ganoush Warm Pita, Eggplant Fritter & Green Chilli Shatta, French Fries and Ras-el-Hanout Spice Mix.
My favourite of these was the pita that was just the right level of fluffiness – it was like eating clouds! A close second was the Eggplant Fritter & Green Chilli Shatta.
No one told me truffle samosas were a thing but I am definitely glad to have discovered them at Levant. Crispy samosas with a smooth savoury filling pair magnificently with a tipple on a warm day.

Daily: 5pm to 12am
With a name telling of its location above the National Art Gallery, Art is designed to inspire all the senses and not just your taste buds. The visually stimulating décor makes the perfect setting for Executive Chef Daniele Sperindio’s curated 8-course Degustation Menu (S$298 Nett per pax).
The intriguing names promise a gastronomical journey beyond the pale: Aperitivo, 4 Amici al Bar, Pane e Poesia, Cameo, Colazione nei Campi, Seaside, Scarpetta, a Way of Living, Christmas Dinner, Porto Antico, Pollice Verde, On the Shinkansen, Grandparents, and Sunday Gathering… Closing Credits.
Aperitivo, 4 Amici al Bar brings together the most common snacks you would find in an Italian pub: millefoglie, Taggiasca olives and peanuts, magically compacted into a single bite. It comes with a breadless mortadella panino with pecorino cheesecake.
Pane e Poesia (Bread and Poetry) is sourdough served with olive oil from Puglia and a special pâté. Colazione nei Campi is a wonderful concoction of pears, baby artichokes, and aged sand carrots.
Scarpetta (little shoe) alludes to how a piece of bread mops up the leftover pasta sauce just as a shoe scrapes up what is on the ground. The dish uses San Marzano tomatoes reduced to a thick sauce with aged parmesan cheese. It is served with Altamura bread.
Christmas Dinner is culugriones (stuffed pasta) with truffles and girolles (mushrooms) in a shallow broth of toasted corn. Sunday Gathering is dessert in the form of an assortment of small sweets.
Japanese-inspired On the Shinkansen showcases the chef’s love of Kyoto bamboo shoot. Faraona (guinea fowl) aged 3 days is infused with rosemary for an Italian touch and topped with fegato custard (goose liver) and topped with farmer’s wafer (a crunchy feuilletine-like dough made of guinea fowl skin). The shoot is braised, then grilled and served with amarene (sour cherries) and an aged celeriac jus.
Every creation is made of the season’s finest ingredients, and inspired by Chef Sperindio’s Italian roots as well as his international culinary adventures. It seems that the creative vibes from the art gallery below have indelibly made an impression on the chef. Art Restaurant is a safe bet if you want a dinner that makes you think, too.
