Upholding the legacy of the famed Szechwan restaurant chain in Japan, Shisen Hanten – founded by the father of Szechwan cuisine Chen Kenmin – Shisen Hanten by Chen Kentaro sees Chen Kenmin’s grandson continuing the journey in Singapore. As a third-generation culinary wonder, Chen Kentaro made a name for himself when he scored two Michelin stars in the 2016 and 2017 Michelin Guide Singapore for Shisen Hanten.

The magnificent dining hall at Shisen Hanten by Chen Kentaro boasts lavish details like the majestic chandeliers and, of course, the unrivalled views of the city from 35 storeys above the famous Orchard Road.

Signature dishes that have won diners’ hearts include the original Chen family recipe Mapo Doufu – a meticulous dish of boiled tofu cooked in a spicy doubanjiang sauce that has been fermented over three years. Then there’s also Chen’s original spicy noodle soup, which is Chef Kentaro’s unique take on the traditional dan dan mian – yellow noodles coated in spicy sauce and sesame paste – among other innovative delicacies on the menu.

The merriment starts with the choice of seven prosperity themed set menus, including the eight-course Prosperity menu for four persons and the Splendour menu for 10 persons featuring braised four-head Australian abalone with sea cucumber, among other exclusive courses.
