About a year after popular Halal buffet restaurant 1 Market by Chef Wan closed at Plaza Singapura, the Malaysian culinary star is returning to Singapore with a new eatery, located on the second level of The Esplanade.

Called Chef Wan’s Kitchen, the a-la-carte restaurant will be dishing out a variety of cuisines, from Peranakan, Moroccan, Javanese to Spanish, across its choices of salads, mains, noodles, sides and desserts.

While the restaurant has been unofficially opened to the public for lunch and dinner from Monday (10 July), customers are recommended to dine from 25 July to ensure a fully satisfying experience.

Chef Wan’s return has been welcomed by many including Ummi Abdullah, owner of Noosh Halal noodle bar and grill that is also located at The Esplanade.

In a Facebook post on Sunday (9 July), Ummi said, “I grew up watching (your) cooking show. I was in my school uniform when my mother and I go for (your) cooking show. Your cooking book is my guide in cooking for my family.”

She added, “Today you become my neighbour… I welcome you Chef Wan, and you will always be my inspiration.”

Chef Wan, whose real name is Datuk Redzuawan Ismail, is expected to be in town for the official opening. Here’s a first look at the menu:
