Singapore Heritage Food at Rempapa
Heritage food tends to get lost in the flood of new ideas and tastes that are being whipped up in a foodie paradise like Singapore.
But chef Damian D’Silva still keeps the fire burning under his heritage cuisine at his latest restaurant Rempapa, at the trendy Paya Lebar Quarter.
Damian doesn’t believe in holding on tightly to the old ways. He still whips up dishes the old way, but he is not averse to incorporating new ideas to keep up with current trends.
He is starting a new tradition of collaborating with young chefs to further the concept of heritage cuisine.
