Sky High Hawker Part Deux @ Ce la Vi

 

Back we go today for Sky High Hawker Part Deux @ Ce la Vi. This time it is just the ladies, with some of Singapore’s best female Chefs displaying their food skills. How could we resist? We came here last time for Part I and it was bloody brilliant, including fireworks for National Day. So it was a must for family Kennett to secure a table for lunch. And we are all so very glad we did.

We had the best weather of the day for our 3-hour slot.

We had cracking seats with amazing views and cool breezes wafting us.

We had a stunning array of a mixed variety of foods.

We had fun. We had absolute fun. And we extended after the hour and a half allotment for eating, eat and went for a beer with a view too.

Sky High Hawker Part Deux @ Ce la Vi = heavenly!

Watch your calendars for October folks too as another Sky High Hawker is a-coming. This time it is coined Heritage (I think) with 3rd generations Chefs coming to cook their hand-me-down recipes from their great grand-parents type thing. We will absolutely be sitting in Ce La Vi in October. How could we miss that? We are very much looking forward to that!!!

But first, let’s have a look at today, shall we?

What an amazing and interesting line-up. Bring it on ladies, let’s be having those dishes… So excited. Sadly though we could not see any of you as you were all hidden somewhere – I assume because it might rain. Also, we were only allowed to sit for 1.5-hour grazing shifts as the next eating shift would be coming in.

I had the very good fortune to meet one of the Chefs in person about 2 years earlier, just after she had appeared on StreetFood Asia on Netflix. The amazing Chef Aisha Hashim of Haig Road Putu Piring.

Chef Petrina Loh from Morsels then kicks in with this stunner. And I mean, STUNNER. Rendang Beef Tartare, Belinjo Cracker. This was a beautiful dish. Rendang spice overtones with super-tender beef but not so much heat, and then a kick from the onion almost like a pickled tartness. With the cracker you then had texture battles going on too. A bloody brilliant dish. Who else do you think loved this one apart from me…?

You got it. Jude Jude was into this one in a big way bless him. I love his food adventurousness. Not bad for a 6-year-old right?

Up next was this rather interesting dish from Chefs Zirah & Ijah of Cookoh Project. A complex title for a complex dish. Signature Potato Begedil Cutlet & Popiah Spring Roll Set. Two meals in one here. The popiah had a load of seaweed or some fishiness in there so it became a no-go for Jude Jude and me, but wifey and Strawberry Blonde really liked it. One part of this is though was right in our domain – deep-fried tofu stuffed with Mozzarella, Parmajiano cheese & minced beef – oh yes!!!

How stunning is this dish from Chef Claire Ariela Shen of Rainbow Lapis? Jut reading the description in the menu it was a must for Wifey and she loved this. Not only did it look beautiful but she rated this as the best Otah she has ever had. This is her Spicy Scallop & Barramundi Pastry Parcel. I reckon we’ll be hunting down Rainbow Lapis so Wifey can get this again. Just beautiful all-up.

And it even gets served with this little descriptor card. How good is that? A superb little touch to a perfect dish in the first place.

A beautiful dish for a beautiful Wifey. Very happy!!!

Chef Aisha’s Chicken Rendang ‘w’ Lace Crepes Roti Kirai & Signature Steamed Rice Pancakes ‘w’ Rendang Spice. Which was a complete cock-up as we were actually ordering the dessert, but hey we’ll have that another time… This is possibly one of the very nicest chicken curries I have ever eaten. The sauce was just off-the-charts good. I could have had a bath in it, so very good. And those crepes where stunners too, perfect for dip, dip, dipping!!! And there still was Putu Piring but this time it was stuffed with this incredibly aromatic rendang spice mix. Double yummo!!!

OK, one make did sneak in. One of the resident Chefs at Ce La Vi with his signature Bao bun hybrid burgers. We had these at the first in the Sky High Hawker series and they are bloody tasty as, so… Great work again Chef Joseph Sergen. Here, in focus is the Char Siu Pork Bao.

And here is #2 the Truffle Wagyu Sukiyaki Bao. The juiciest burger you’ll ever likely to have…

Yes, I was there, and yes I was having a ball – what a view for a lovely hawker lunch. See you again soon in October.

Jude gets his bashful on, or his I can’t be bothered to smile… We’re finished eating now. Rigidly set to 1.5 hours and out, which is not how we roll. We are a slow grazing family haha. So, luckily we were able to get another table outside for another hour and a half. Soak in the view and a couple of beers too. As we sat there we could see the storms all rolling in. As I said, we go the best of the weather this day for our roof-top dining and fun.

Even a photo of the happy couple haha… One day we’ll get a photo of us two and there won’t be any kids there either. Proper date-time!!! Bloody Covid-19…

Make that two photos…

Yes, we were soaking up those stunning East Coast views, with beautiful cool breezes and chillout sound from the DJ also wafting around our ears. But check those clouds out. Yep, time to leave and perfect timing as the skies opened…

Another cracking event at Ce La Vi. Please keep the Sky High Hawker series going. It really is a genius concept. It almost feels like a staycation lunch in another country, especially with the variety of food on offer today. Chefs be proud as the food you cooked was up there in the amazing bracket. Just superb. Thank you for you and your crew cooking efforts this day. Family Kennett had an absolute blast. I recommend these events highly (excuse the pun). Sky High Hawker Part Deux @ Ce la Vi – ENJOY!!
