The Dragon Chamber “Secret Society” Restaurant and Bar Returns

The Dragon Chamber is now hidden behind a fridge at a Circular Road kopitiam, this speakeasy restaurant and bar marks a new partnership between Ebb and Flow Group and Tung Lok Group. The Dragon Chamber was previously hidden within Lokkee at Plaza Singapura.

The Dragon Chamber is for diners who are looking for a culinary adventure at every turn. Dare to step into a restaurant that pushes the boundaries and traditions of Chinese cuisine. Overseeing the kitchen team is Chef Wong Meng Ooi. The 36 -year-old started his love affair with the culinary arts from an early age, and has over 20 years of experience under his belt.

The generously portioned dishes are presented communal style. There are new dishes such as Dragon Mountain (S$88 / $138), which is a treasure trove of fried whole lobsters, tossed with crispy garlic, crushed fermented soybeans, sliced chillis and Sichuan peppercorns. 

A luxed up version of the trendy chicken and waffles dish is the Firecracker Chicken and Maple Fritters (S$16 / S$28).Diced chicken are deep-fried till golden brown and topped with chopped dried chillies, cashews, chives and Sichuan peppercorn. Crispy you tiaofritters drizzled with maple syrup are served on the side for that extra crunch.

Then, brace yourself for dishes that will push you past your comfort zone. Served with a savoury fish sauce blend, the unique Roasted Pig Tail (S$28)is a flavoursome offering. Fat-insulated meat is encased within deliciously charred skin, and served with crunchy and refreshing lettuce wraps that help to balance the meaty indulgence. The Dragon Claw (S$45)is a showstopper fit for the brave — the foot of a Singapore-farmed crocodile is soused in braised herbal sauce and perched on a bed of kale. The bold will be rewarded with amino acids and potassium, which help to prevent heart disease. Follow that with D*** Soup (S$30),which features crocodile penis in a chicken- and pork-based soup that has been double-boiled for six hours.

Loyal fans of The Dragon Chamber will be delighted to know that there are also returning favourites. The new and improved Wagyu Truffle Beef Hor Fun(S$68) showcases wok-fried flat noodles in a moreish truffle gravy. The noodles are topped with exquisite slices of A4 Kagoshima wagyu, crispy deep-fried hor fun strips and poached egg.
