Yan Ting @ St. Regis Singapore - Rediscover a New Inimitable Dining Experience


With the reopening of Yan Ting at The St. Regis, the restaurant now boasts a refreshed modern look that exudes a lush, rich, and moody ambience. Alongside this aesthetic transformation, Yan Ting has welcomed newly appointed Executive Chinese Chef Chan Chung Shing, who masterfully pays homage to authentic Cantonese cuisine while infusing it with diverse modern flavours.


Appetiers 4.5/5

We began our meal with a quartet of appetisers featuring Yan Ting's signature dishes: Honey-glazed Barbecued Iberico Pork, Fried 'Pik Fong Tong' Radish Cake, Pan-seared Hokkaido Scallop with Caviar, and Chilled Abalone. Among these, the 'Pik Fong Tong' Radish Cake stood out with its unique execution, incorporating a distinct Hong Kong flavour into a dim sum classic.

Braised Superior Bird's Nest, Crabmeat, Pumpkin Broth 4.8/5

Following the appetisers, I savoured a bowl of Braised Superior Bird's Nest with Crabmeat and Pumpkin Broth. The naturally bland bird's nest was elevated by the sweetness of the crab meat and pumpkin, resulting in a comforting and nourishing finish.


Steamed Leopard Coral Grouper, Dough Stick, Garlic 4.2/5

The next dish was Steamed Leopard Coral Grouper with Dough Stick and Garlic. The sweet and flaky grouper flesh was beautifully infused with a garlicky aroma and paired with the crispness of dough sticks. While I'm accustomed to pairing steamed fish with soft tofu, the dough stick provided a refreshing and unique dimension to the dish.


Crispy Beef Short Ribs 4.2/5

Another savoury delight was the Crispy Beef Short Ribs. The dish featured a delightful contrast of tender meat enveloped in a satisfying crunchy coating, complemented by a medley of spices and aromatics.

Wok-fried Lobster Angel Hair Pasta, Truffle 4.2/5

An unusual yet innovative take on Cantonese cuisine, the Wok-fried Lobster Angel Hair Pasta with Truffle was a standout dish. The incorporation of pasta added a bold modern twist, resulting in an indulgent and harmonious combination of textures. Each mouthful was infused with the rich, sweet flavour of lobster, accented by the light, earthy notes of truffle.

Chilled Panna Cotta 4.2/5

To conclude our meal, we enjoyed the Chilled Panna Cotta. This dessert struck the perfect balance between firmness and creaminess, offering a smooth, silky, and light experience that was both elegant and comforting.

Yan Ting's reopening under the guidance of Chef Chan Chung Shing promises an exceptional dining experience. It blends the rich traditions of Cantonese cuisine with contemporary flair, and the combination of innovative dishes and classic flavours ensures that every visit is memorable.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
