Asia / Chinese / Smart
Located near the Asian Civilisations Museum, Empress is a great place to stop by after a museum tour for some dim sum or modern Chinese fare. Window seats offer a pretty waterfront view, while the 14-seater private room means you can comfortably hold business lunches here too. The triple roast meat platter is a signature, featuring sticky spare ribs, char siew, and crackling roast pork, while crispy duck is turned into a refreshing salad with nashi pears, figs and a plum-citrus dressing. Cocktails here are well-executed too—Empress & The Pea is a cheeky play on the fairytale, translated into an adult tipple made with Larios gin, lime juice and butterfly pea flowers.
