Shisen Hanten, a prestigious two-MICHELIN-star Sichuan restaurant nestled within Singapore's Mandarin Orchard, is renowned for its Chen's Mapo Tofu, a signature dish featuring silky tofu stir-fried in a spicy, aromatic Sichuan pepper-infused sauce. While dining at the fine establishment can be quite an indulgence, fans of this culinary masterpiece can now savor it without straining their wallets at Shisen Hanten's more casual offshoot, Chen's Mapo Tofu. At the helm is Executive Chef Liew Tian Heong, who collaborated with Shisen Hanten's Chen Kentaro to craft the menu and concept for this laid-back eatery, which has received the prestigious MICHELIN Bib Gourmand accolade in 2019, 2021, 2022, and 2023.

Chen's famed namesake dish has been reimagined here as Mapo Don. Beyond the bold spice and the tantalizing mala sensation from Sichuan peppercorns, the meat sauce offers a rich depth of flavor, thanks to the imported fermented broad bean paste from the Sichuan-Pidu district. Meticulously prepared with velvety soft tofu upon order, the mapo tofu finds its perfect pairing on a bed of fluffy Hokkaido white rice. Opt for a set and explore the Szechwan Popcorn Chicken, featuring a crispy outer layer and a juicy, boldly seasoned interior.

For noodle enthusiasts, the new Rakki-Rakki Yakiudon is a must-try, presenting yaki udon bathed in a spicy Szechwan kombu-bonito sauce that delivers irresistible umami goodness. It's adorned with succulent abalone and prawns, and accompanied by crispy Duck Karaage and a flavorful soup, creating a satisfying meal.

Vegetarians aren't left out with the Meatless Katsu. This dish features a succulent Japanese vegetarian patty coated in breadcrumbs and deep-fried to a golden brown perfection. It can be paired with your choice of Hokkaido Rice or Wheat Noodles, ensuring a delectable option for all preferences.
