DC Restaurant, also known as, Darren Chin Restaurant is known for being adventurous with their cuisine. Chef Darren’s expertise after all is derived from years of training, and he even trained in France for a period of time.

The restaurant itself is located in TTDI. It consists of 3 floors and each floor has its designated purpose. The ground floor is known as the Le Comptoir which stands for “the counter”. This area offers a dining experience which is casual. As such, guests can expect to dine close to the chef who would be preparing their meal.

The first floor, known as La Salle which stands for “the room”, is DC’s main dining area and it offers more of a formal environment. Here, guests can expect a gastronomic experience that pushes boundaries.

The third floor, known as L’atelier, is the workshop/test kitchen. It is a private space for chefs to try their hand in creating new recipes and perfecting old ones. Chef Darren also occasionally shares his techniques and ideas with other chefs here. The interesting element of the top floor is that it features a mini greenhouse which supplies herbs and vegetable to the restaurant.

All I ask for is our clients to come into DC restaurant with an open mind. Allow the chefs and staff to take you on a special gastronomic ride, as our dishes and techniques constantly evolve.
