The Overview

An airy kitchen-cum-dining room, Corner Kitchen seats just eight. In fact, the only difference between dining here and supping at a friend's is that owner Vivian Herijanto hands everyone an apron. A meal at Corner Kitchen doubles as a cooking class.

Herijanto once worked as a chef at some of New York's top restaurants such as Jean-George Vongerichten's Spice Market; while she remains passionate about food, she soured on the restaurant industry's cut-throat nature. She's also a food stylist with impeccable taste - sitting down at the exquisitely decorated teak table is an aesthetic as well as gustatory pleasure.

"A kitchen without boundaries" is how Herijanto describes her eatery. The menu traverses the globe, from Bali to France to New England. Learn to make spicy ikan betongol (Indonesian tuna salad), rich coq au vin or a briny Catham Bay cod stew - the choice of recipes is varied, but they're all delicious.
