Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant
Filed in best chinese restaurants | February 19, 2019
There are so many things to love about Wah Lok, who has established itself as an institution in Singapore’s restaurant scene. It has been operating for about three decades now, and has recently received acclaim from the Michelin Guide Singapore. Its claim to success is being meticulous about sourcing world-class produce from different parts of the globe to befit its brilliant Cantonese menu.
Authentic Cantonese Dim Sum: Foodies can attest that Singapore is a haven for great-tasting dim sum but only a few restaurants can transport diners to the province of Guangdong for its remarkable authenticity. Wah Lok’s bo luo bao, or pineapple bun, is believed to be the best in all of Singapore.
Guangdong-born Chef: Wah Lok takes pride in its Guangdong-born chef with Hong Kong culinary training – a combination that results in upgraded award-winning authentic Cantonese classics.
Vegetarian Dishes: Wah Lok is one of those few places where vegetarians and carnivores are both spoilt for choice. Their vegetarian dishes are so ingeniously crafted that they practically appear to be indulgences.
