Poh Ling Yeow’s first restaurant just opened in Melbourne


Queen of the kitchen Poh cooks up her first in-restaurant experience, The Singleton’s Delicious Discoveries at QT Melbourne

The menu is a suitably colourful affair including a roster of delicacies inspired by a trot around the world: fried chicken, kimchi and kewpie mayo bao and french fries with an anchovy cream sauce. Sweet temptations include a riff on an Italian classic; strawberries, mascarpone yoghurt, roasted almonds, aged balsamic and basil and a cheeky Easter take on old favourite; apple miso caramel turnovers with vanilla crème fraîche.

MasterChef royalty Poh says: “I wanted to take The Singleton’s unique world of single malts into a new flavour realm, playing on QT’s signature quirk to create a dining experience that is bursting with colour and taste. For my first restaurant takeover, I ignored the sensible and embraced the playful.”

Poh was catapulted into the centre of the Australian food scene when she won the hearts of Australia as a finalist on the first season of MasterChef Australia. Since then, Poh has graced our screens with her shows; Poh’s Kitchen and Poh & Co.

In addition, Poh has authored four cookbooks, Poh’s Kitchen – My Cooking Adventures, Same Same But Different, Poh Bakes A Hundred Greats, and What I Cook When Nobody Is Watching. And let’s not forget her bakery Jamface, selling homemade sweet and savoury treats at the Adelaide Showgrounds Farmers Market. The Singleton Delicious Discoveries will be the only location in the world where guests can sit down and enjoy Poh’s creations in a restaurant setting.

The Singleton Delicious Discoveries will be available to book from Thursday 2 February. It will be open until May 1. Available Thursdays – Sundays. Book here.
