The secret to Chef Kelvin’s dishes are fresh ingredients and his ‘less is more’ philosophy that gives a clean and enjoyable taste without overpowering the palate and taking away from the main protein.
“The main protein like fish, chicken and seafood are carefully selected to ensure its fresh, which will result in great texture and natural sweetness when cooked and it absorbs the flavours that are added to it with a subtle sauce or just as simple as salt and pepper.”Chef Kelvin
