Chef Jungsik Yim Brings New Korean Cuisine to Singapore

Two Michelin-starred Chef Jungsik Yim, dubbed the King of Korean Cuisine, is set to make his first culinary debut in Singapore on 19 and 20 May, hosted by the five-star resort Capella in collaboration with Acqua Panna and S.Pellegrino.

With just two days in town, expectant diners will need to book ahead for the chance to take part in one of the two exclusive dinners set to showcase Chef Yim's groundbreaking “New Korean Cuisine”that has garnered him international acclaim. Both dinners will take place at the hotel’s fine-dining restaurant, Cassia, alongside executive chef, Lee Hiu Ngai.

Yim's five course experience menu will reflect his contemporary style of “New Korean” making for an exciting appointment on the sophisticated Singapore dining circuit.

A selection of traditional Korean dishes using molecular gastronomic techniques includes: oysters breaded with squid ink and truffle-flavoured beef tenderloin wrapped with seaweed, braised abalone with seaweed-anchovy dressing, charcoal-grilled branzino served with aged kimchi finishing with a Mexican-inspired corn-based dessert with caramelised pecan and cayenne pepper.

The chef has since gone on to secure two Michelin stars for his cool Jungsik New York restaurant.
