Marco Pierre White. Remember him? The one-time enfant terrible of British cooking (and one-time youngest chef anywhere to boast three Michelin stars) has alighted in Singapore, where his latest sally as restaurateur, a 150-seat beauty on picturesque Mohamed Sultan Road called The English House (theenglishhouse.com), is generating quite a bit of buzz (not least for a fish and chips priced at SG$98, or about £56 – for which money, incidentally, you can fly to Phuket from here). Set to open in a matter of weeks is The English House’s hotel component (from about £383): 18 cosily appointed rooms, spread across the upper floors of the restaurant’s two ample shophouses. Pierre White shipped in materials, hardware and many furnishings from the UK, with a goal to effect a bit of country-house charm – complete with a leafy guests-only garden – in the equatorial heat of the Lion City.
