It's uncustomary to speak of dessert at the start of a meal, but we can't help ourselves — Yàn's Chilled Mango Cream ($12) is THAT good. It comes served in a coconut, with vanilla ice cream and oats that give a welcome crunch to the silky smooth cream, and a bonus of coconut flesh to scoop out! Sweets aside, this chic restaurant (perfect for a lunch catchup with mom) at The National Gallery does a mean Peking Duck ($40 for half) with homemade crepes. The glistening skin nails the fine line between crisp and fat, and the delicate crepe barely holds everything together. The second course ($10 for half) sees the duck meat fried in black bean sauce and tossed in chilli powder, and is deliciously savoury with just the right hint of heat. You won't go wrong with the roast meats here — the Roast Crispy Chicken (from $23 for half) is a favourite with the Burpple community. For a refreshing approach, opt for the Omakase Lunch option ($60 for six courses) and let the chef dictate your meal. Pro tip: Get an order of their Steamed Custard Bun filled with Salted Egg Yolk ($6 for three pieces) and request for it to be deep fried instead. It is stunning.
Avg Price: $60 per person
