Home chefs are given the opportunity to operate from a professionally fitted 24-pax restaurant at Clarke Quay Central mall! 

Venue: 6 Eu Tong Sen St, Clarke Quay Central, #03-103/104 Singapore 059817
Opening Hours: Differs for each resident chef 

Far East Organization launches Chef X, an initiative that provides homebased chefs and private dining chefs with a sandbox to operate their own full-fledged commercial restaurant within Clarke Quay Central mall for four or eight weeks. From 26 April 2024, each resident chef will serve out of a professionally designed F&B space fitted with commercial-grade kitchen equipment, with a dining area that can accommodate up to 24 diners.

To Experience running a Full-Fledge Restaurant

Each resident chef, who will helm the restaurant for four or eight weeks, will showcase their culinary skills and individual styles, cooking at the unit for dine-in customers, with the option of takeaway. 

The chefs will get to experience what it would entail for them to run a restaurant at a commercial space within a mall at minimal risk. Apart from physical resources, resident chefs will be offered guidance from a mentor chef. They can look forward to receiving advice and tips - from menu planning, food presentation and recipe refinements, to business and human resource management, from Chef Isaac Tan, Head of Culinary & Product Innovations for Commonwealth Concepts.

The Current Line-Up

The current line-up will see a rotating roster of four home chefs, cuisines ranging from heartwarming food inspired by grandmother’s kitchen and Korean kimchi-based dishes, to Japanese bentos and a seven course omakase.

  • Kicking off the project is Royaleys Smoky Boat from 26 Apr to 21 Jun 2024.¬†Named for their boat-like form, these banana¬†leaf parcels are stuffed with premium quality¬†rice topped with a range of ingredients ‚Ästchicken, fish, prawn, or soybean ‚Äď naturally¬†seasoned with tempered spice pastes.

  • Wanting Kimchi, a popular brand with many kimchi fans, will be¬†the second resident chef at¬†Chef X from 1 Jul - 26 Aug 2024.¬†Apart from her usual best-sellers, fans will also get to try¬†a selection of hot food too!¬†

  • Popo‚Äôs Kitchen offers wholesome and¬†comforting flavours reminiscent of the food¬†found in one's grandmother's kitchen. They specialises in handcrafted soon kuehs and roast chicken¬†platters, and¬†will be expanding its offerings during its Chef X residency from 5 Sep to 30 Oct 2024.¬†

  • The last chef to take over Chef X in 2024 is¬†ooomahmee, serving¬†chilled
    Japanese-style dishes spanning bara chirashi to chilled noodles topped with a variety of raw seafood from 16 Dec 2024 to 10 Feb 2025. 

These chefs have established themselves as home-based chefs and this will be their first foray into having a physical store. So, do visit and support them, and also be understanding of their first-time status! 

Other chefs will be announced at a later date. 


Chef X will be located at level three of Clarke Quay Central mall, at #03-103/104. The opening hours will differ for each resident chef.
