Ce La Vi: Sky High Hawker - dining in the sky

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 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 the hour and a half allotment for eating, eat and went for a beer with a view too.

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 food of 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…?

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

Braised burgers, literally dripping with scrumptious goodness… Oh my these are going to be just so very good…

Hawker food on steroids. Seriously look at that plating, the funny thing is the cutlery with this was wooden.

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.

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!!
