Names Can Be Deceiving

March 30, 2015
My Humble House

Don’t be fooled by the name, Singapore-born dining concept My Humble House is anything but. With a selection of awards already in the bag since its inception in 2002 (including Best Dining in the Singapore Experience Awards 2010), the younger Beijing incarnation quickly followed suit with a merit from Time Out Beijing for Best Asian Fine Dining in 2014. But it’s not the shiny trophies that have caught our eye – it’s the polished service and neo-Chinese menu, which exquisitely blends traditional flavours with modern cooking techniques.

The Miura Sakae-designed space of bamboo-lined windows, blond-wood surfaces and leather-wrapped armchairs sprawls across two storeys of the striking Parkview Green complex, and creates an elegant but perfectly neutral ambiance for the changing seasonal menu. Fire off with the wok-fried tiger prawns in black pepper sauce; plump for their signature three-way Peking duck with the off-beat accompaniments like beets, red onions and green pancakes; then pair with a bottle from their Euro-heavy wine list (think Alsatian pinot blanc); and finish with a sinful Valrhona chocolate cake encased in a spherical candy shell. Oh, My Humble House – don’t be so modest!
