YEN Chinese Restaurant is located on the fifth and sixth floor of the hotel. The restaurant offers 37 seats, seven private dining rooms and the bar Liquid at YEN. Inspired by the glamourous days of 1930s Shanghai, the design cleverly combines modern fashion and the Ws fun-filled elements to present the complete experience of YENs signature food and beverage. This dinner was the perfect showcase of this concept. 

MIC DROP AT YEN was divided into two parts: the dinner and the live performance. The dinner was crafted by Kong Khai Meng, the Chinese Executive Chef from Singapore. Chef Kong selected the seasonal ingredients and broke all the rules to create a wonderful five-course food and beverage journey full of innovative ideas. The journey was divided into five courses: Savor, Allure, Glitter, Sparkle and Sip. The YEN-Style Boston Lobster Bisque with Jasmine Rice of the second course exceeded guests expectations, while the main course, a Double-Cooked Black Cod Fillet with Spicy Savory Black Bean Sauce, captured the essence of Chinese ingredients and flavors. 


Cantonese cuisine needs to be made with certain procedures. With complete devotion we wow our guests, said Kong Khai Meng, Chinese Executive Chef of W Shanghai The Bund.

The night at W Shanghai - The Bund was amazing, said Fifi Rong. The restaurant concept of YEN is the same as my musical inspiration, which is East meets West. Performing my songs here under the Pudong skyline was an epic experience.
