MS. MARIA & MR. SINGH
What began as a simple origin story to guide the conceptualization of a restaurant has become a narrative with a life of its own. Ms. Mary & Mr. Singh freshly prepared more than just food; the concept provides narrative, romance, and speaks to the fusion of cultures so familiar and present in Singapore, a country defined by global innovation. Over the years patrons have become as dedicated to the love story at the core of the concept as much as they are dedicated to the food. Running through the spine of the project is an undercurrent of rebellion and tenacity as Ms. Mary and Mr. Singh defy both their families to be together. Their infatuation of food and mutual appreciation of each other's cultures leads to an exploration of their native cuisines, eventually becoming their restaurant which perfectly encapsulates not only their marriage but the marriage of their cultures. The result is an eclectic, irreverent, and joyful cuisine guided by love.
