JAAN Restaurant – a Top Restaurant in so many ways

JAAN 5 course menu

JAAN is a modern French restaurant in Singapore that is a top restaurant in so many ways. Perched on Level 70 of the hotel tower at Raffles City, JAAN Restaurant’s lofty heights and expansive windows mean that it is one of the best restaurants with breath-taking views over Singapore. Its position as one of the top restaurants in Singapore is reinforced by the 1 Star awarded by Singapore Michelin Guide 2016, its inclusion in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017 and its appointment as Krug’s First Restaurant Ambassade in Singapore. JAAN’s menu is a creation of a top chef – Kirk Westaway, winner of the S. Pellegrino Young Chef 2015 for Southeast Asia. The interesting set menus of JAAN Restaurant have received much praise. Having had lunch there recently, we must say that we had a top notch experience and JAAN is now one of The Ordinary Patrons’ (TOP) favourite restaurants in Singapore.

Amuse-bouches

JAAN Restaurant Singapore

We had the 5 course set. The lunch started with amuse-bouches, which impressed us immediately. There were a series of them – which included “fish & chips”, foie gras & truffle macaron and mushroom tea. Each was artfully presented. They all looked wonderful and tasted really good.

After the amuse-bouches and bread and butter were served, the 5 course lunch began. Each dish was beautifully presented. The server would tell us about the ingredients and give background information or anecdotes of each dish. We could not remember most of what we were told. Maybe we were too distracted – admiring the artful plating and trying to photograph all the pretty culinary creations. Each of the dishes were interesting, with an exciting mix of quality ingredients, and very enjoyable. We will show you our photos and leave the rest to your imagination.
