Morsels, founded by Chef Petrina Loh in 2013. Originally, in a shophouse on Mayo Street in Little India. In 2017, the restaurant was moved to the current location in the lush greenery of Dempsey Hill.
25 Dempsey Road, was originally the historical Civil Service Clubhouse built during the British era. Well-preserved by Singapore Land Authority, our current location has been redesigned by Chef Petrina to a cozy barnyard cottage, where one might find furnishings from materials repurposed, memorabilia from her travels, plate ware from all around the world but also some from our homegrown potters, Mudrock. Look around the walls, and one might find Chef Petrina’s paintings and landscape photographs, sharing her love for the arts and nature.
Our cuisine, predominantly Asian Fusion, is innovative and progressive. It is a reflection of Chef Petrina’s childhood heritage as a homegrown Singapore local, to her travels in seek of inspiration globally. Our award- winning celebrity Singaporean female chef-owner frequently seeks out fellow artisans be it winemakers, farmers, sauce makers and incorporates them into our menus.
Originally, a small plates sharing menu concept, this year, in our 10th year, Morsels, has blossomed to feature a tasting menu concept with a fixed menu showcasing the season’s best with our own fermented sauces and ingredients which Chef Petrina has been making since 2018. In our cozy rustic cottage, we share our love for food, wine, sake and greenery. Not forgetting, our stewardship to the environment with our zero-waste policy and sustainability focus ingredient driven mission.
In her fifth year, MORSELS moves to a brand new location that is partially tucked away in the green oasis of Dempsey Hill at 25 Dempsey Road in late January 2017. The 1000-square-foot rustic barnyard-style house is a labour of love by chef-owner Petrina Loh, who is a California Culinary Academy graduate of Le Cordon Bleu program. Engaging her green thumb and love of social company, the 40-seater restaurant is almost instantly inviting and cosy employing a simple colour palette, natural materials and personal accents that set the overall relaxing ambience.
Hanging plants and tableside flowers soften the hard cement floor while adding life to the open layout room. Repurposed and reupholstered wooden furniture, as well as the walls were repainted to enhance the distressed and weathered qualities resembling barn wood. Four high chairs at the bar face the wines and spirits display wall frame one side of the room, and another four high chairs face the adjacent wall, looking right into the kitchen, marked as Chef`s Table scheduled to be launched in the second quarter of 2017. Exposed roof beams and brick walls mounted with counter tops further reinforce the interior design devised by Chef Petrina.
Chef Petrina’s experimental fusion cuisine defies boundaries and ignores attempts at pigeonholing, so to speak. She shares, “I like to work with a variety of ingredients, teasing their natural flavours to release into the mouth a trained frenzy of sweet, salty, bitter, sour and umami, tempering the temperature and texture, all on one plate.” The chef-owner’s life tenets extends to the restaurant's ethos-genuine, artisanal and approachable.
