Executive Chef, Hai Tien Lo, Pan Pacific Singapore
Chef Lai helms Hai Tien Lo, Pan Pacific Singapore’s award-winning Cantonese restaurant with more than 20 years of culinary experience under his belt. Passionate about experimenting in the kitchen to come up with creative and memorable dishes, Chef Lai believes that the culinary journey begins with the fundamental ingredients to bring out the overall textures and flavours of his dishes. Serving temperatures and immaculate presentations are also important elements that contribute to the overall culinary experience. Through persistence in this mantra, Chef Lai has steered Hai Tien Lo to become one of Singapore’s top Chinese restaurants. In 2013 and 2014, Hai Tien Lo was named ‘Singapore’s Best Restaurant’ by Singapore Tatler. Last year, the restaurant was further recognised by the magazine as ‘Regional Best Restaurant’.
