Janice Wong. 2am:dessertbar
The boundaries between sweet and savoury are there to be pushed. To do just that, Janice Wong created 2am:dessertbar, where she offers a cerebral experience with carefully researched, high-tech dishes. Thoughtful and creative in the realm of desserts (and far beyond), she started out in the culinary world after graduating in Economics from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. She learned from some of the best chefs in the world, including Thomas Keller, Grant Achatz, Oriol Balaguer, and Pierre Hermé. Wong has received worldwide recognition for her cutting-edge creations and is a regular on the global pop-up circuit – proof that 2am:dessertbar is more than just a sugar-rush. In 2013, she was awarded Asia´s Best Pastry Chef by the Asia 50 Best Restaurants. A firm favorite among sweet-toothed Singaporeans, her dessert bar in Holland Village – established as one of the city’s principal food and drink hubs – has redefined the genre.
