Diners at the 220-seater Shang Social will be brought on a culinary journey conceptualized by three of Shangri-La's highly acclaimed master chefs. The extensive menu, nearly 100 dishes, features traditional and contemporary interpretations of classic Chinese cuisine while staying true to their authentic flavors and roots. Between the formal dining space, the casual MRKT and Bar, Shang Social is specially designed to cater to everyone and for every dining occasion.

"We are excited that our first standalone F&B outlet is at Jewel Changi Airport," said Mr. Lim Beng Chee, Shangri-La Group chief executive officer. "Jewel's strategic location at one of the world's busiest airports offers us an ideal opportunity to showcase our many Chinese specialties to a global audience. With Shang Social, we are taking our first steps to bring our collective culinary heritage to a wider community outside of the hotel setting."

"We are honored that the Shangri-La Group has chosen Jewel for their first standalone dining establishment," said Ms. Hung Jean, chief executive officer of Jewel Changi Airport Development. "Our team has carefully curated a fine selection of dining options to delight even the most well-traveled taste buds, and the addition of Shang Social is testament to our commitment to curate the highest-quality retail and dining offerings for our guests."

Three Master Chefs, One Unparalleled Gastronomic Experience

The Shang Social menu is carefully curated with inputs from three of Shangri-La's highly acclaimed master chefs, each a master in either Cantonese, Huaiyang or Sichuan cuisine.

"MRKT"

Shang Social will also feature a contemporary Chinese-style marketplace abuzz with diners enjoying casual communal dining.  The Shang Social MRKT will showcase exciting seasonal culinary delights from around the region at its pop-up feature kitchen.
