Pan-Asian restaurant and lounge Taikun reopens following revamp
Taikun Pan-Asian Restaurant & Lounge has officially reopened its revamped doors today.
Having undergone a subtle refurbishment during its temporary closure, Taikun’s layout, décor and offering has been elevated, seeing the outlet reposition itself as a dine-and-dance venue, with dinner shows set to launch by year-end.
Under the culinary direction of Lincoln Hospitality’s Group Executive Chef Brian Voelzing, the menu has been curated to showcase quality ingredients and impactful Pan Asian flavours inspired by multiple traditions. Offering a feast of Asian cuisine, the menu includes a variety of sushi, wok dishes, and traditional street food.
Highlights include raw dishes such as beef tenderloin tataki with onion ponzu, pickled radish and roasted garlic, and seabass ceviche with mango, yuzu, pomegranate and celery, followed by sushi platters including spicy tuna, prawn tempura, chuka wakame, wagyu with fresh truffle, and more.
From the wok, options include chicken cashew, and Malay beef with shitake mushrooms, while the robata grills servings of miso black cod, avocado teriyaki and yuzu chimichurri striploin, plus others.
Bringing dinner to a close, the dessert selection offers choices such as assorted mochi, Thai coconut mango, yuzu panna cotta, chocolate fondant and more.
Designed with three experiences in mind, Taikun now houses a restaurant, bar and al fresco terrace. On the weekly agenda, visitors can enjoy live entertainment by resident DJ on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, ladies’ night every Tuesday from 7pm (launching September 1, 2020), and weekend brunches.
Taikun Restaurant & Lounge is located at Vida Downtown.
