Our Story

Inspired by Sichuan’s rich heritage, legend and anecdote, the founders decided to bring into Singapore the vibrancy of its cuisine. We were so taken in by the fiery Chong Qing Grilled Fish served in a simmering hot pot in Chong Qing China, we decided to bring the concept back. The Group’s flagship Fish kitchen dining concept opened its doors in 2010 and was the pioneer in introducing Chong Qing Grilled Fish to Singapore. The Group has gone on to set up Let’s Toss (Sichuan salad bar) in 2011 and Fat Bird in 2012 (Chong Qing Chicken Hot Pot).

The poem sums up the unique trait of Sichuan Cuisine, multiplicity. With just the three main ingredients, chilli, pepper and bean paste, lending its flavour in different combination and multiples, Sichuan Cuisine sets itself apart from the others. This extraordinary cuisine is well known for each dish having its own style and character.


Chong Qing, the former second largest city after Chengdu in the Sichuan Region, it is the melting point as well as a furnace, the point at which Sichuan meets the outside world. After its separation from Sichuan, Chong Qing went further and added their own personality to form their signature style known for its creativity and ever evolutionary taste. This forms the latter, Chong Qing Cuisine, the main representation of Sichuan flavours.


Chong Qing Grilled Fish

According to legend, this dish dates back to the Three Kingdoms period 1,700 years ago, and it was one of the favourite imperial dish. Made up of the harmonious cross between grilled fish and the ever popular Sichuan Hotpot, that was carefully prepared with the use of more than 20 herbs and spices, it had captivated its diners across the years. Keeping the roots of the dish in mind and innovating the taste and presentation of the dish, we had created our very own Chong Qing Grilled Fish that fully embodies the creativity and evolutionary taste of Chong Qing Cuisine.

据传,此菜可追溯到三国时期 1700年前,这种烤鱼不但诸葛亮百吃不厌,刘备、关羽等人也很喜欢吃,成了皇家御宴上一道不可缺少的美食。它结合了传统烤鱼及重庆火锅的吃法, 采用传统配方及超过20种香料与药材,新鲜的鱼肉,令人食指大动胃口大开,充分体现了 现代创意与传统文化相结合的美食精华。


* 点菜颇有讲究:
而重庆烤鱼品种繁多、口味多样、吃法也多多。首先需要选择鱼的种类,其次选择喜欢的口味(分为麻辣、香辣、甘香、鲜味等各种不同口味),再选择喜爱的配菜加以和火慢烧,让你既可品尝到烤鱼的焦香酥爽,又可品味重庆火锅的涮百味,从而真正体现了“重庆江湖菜”变化多端的味之本质。 干锅 干锅在底料和干锅香辣油上最为讲究,每一锅都是经过独特秘方配制,然后经过特殊工艺炒制而成,与火锅和汤锅相比,汤汁少,味更足。小火慢热后口感浓郁、 麻辣鲜香、越煮越劲味。

* 吃法颇有讲究:
首先把热气腾腾的干锅煲端上桌后,在小火焖烧的同时锅中香气四溢,满屋飘香, 让人食欲大动。在使用完锅中原料后还可添加美味的高汤, 涮上其它配菜,又一道传统火锅出现在你的面前。
