Chinese cuisine done how the French like it
Xin Divine brings modern Chinese cuisine to Duxton Hill, in a three-storey shophouse unit with an elegant aesthetic to match. The concept is a branch-off from owner Jolin Lee’s first business—Divine Palate, a bespoke private fine dining business. At its Duxton Hill shophouse, the restaurant occupies the upper two floors, while the ground floor is home to sister entity Divine Bar—where you can load up on bar snacks like bite-sized XO Carrot Cake and Szechuan Chicken Karaage.
On the menu at Xin Divine are Chinese, Szechuan and Cantonese dishes handled with modern European culinary techniques; particularly from French cuisine. Signatures include the Szechuan Style Tortellini ($18)—minced kurobuta pork in wanton skin twisted to resemble Italian pasta; and the Poulet De Bresse ($35)—foie gras and French chicken in premium Chinese wine Nu Er Hong. Dessert too is an exciting affair, with the “Orh Nee” ($12) fluffy yam mousse (sprinkled with coconut biscuit and shallot crumble), and the jelly treat Osmanthus Sphere ($12).
For beverages, a wine cellar with over 200 labels offers great variety by both the glass (from $22) and the bottle ($68). Else, pair your meal with a house pour, starting from $12.
