Requiring just as much culinary finesse to perfect, the essence of excellent claypot dishes lies in the smoky flavours skilfully imbued into the ingredients under traditional charcoal fire. This nostalgic dining experience begins when diners enter the restaurant, where they will be greeted by a rustic set-up of claypots cooking on traditional charcoal stoves, permeating the restaurant with the inviting aroma of sumptuous home-style food.

Another star item is the Braised Oxtail with Porcini (牛肝菌焖牛尾煲), with its soft meat wonderfully slow cooked with wild porcini mushrooms from Yunnan.

This Mid-Autumn Festival, InterContinental® Singapore celebrates its 20th anniversary with a  commemorative box, reflecting the multifaceted facades of the historic Bugis district where the hotel stands resplendent.
