Best Dim Sum in Singapore

I love dim sum/yum cha and I have been to the top dim sum restaurants in Singapore (and Hong Kong).  In my opinion, Crystal Jade Golden Palace is the best in Singapore, despite having a lower rating than some others on HungryGoWhere.  My opinion was reaffirmed yesterday.  We ordered a variety of dim sum - har gow, siew mai, cha siew bao, cheong fun, lor bak gou, wu gok, lor mai gai, siew yuk, pei dan jook, among others.  Each dish was masterfully prepared - delicate and delicious.  The service and ambience were very good.  And at $30 per head, it was excellent value.  One of my favourite restaurants in Singapore - highly recommended.

Yummy Teochew Cuisine!

It has been a long time since I am back at Crystal Jade Golden Palace at Paragon. This is one of the few restaurants in Singapore that offer Teochew cuisine in an upmarket environment.   The décor is very chic, with chandeliers on stands located on the main dining floor. The restaurant has a very modern chic ambience.   Here are the dishes we had: - Roast Duck: We ordered half a roast duck. You can choose between roast (where you get duck meat and the skin together) or Peking Duck, where you enjoy the crispy duck skin with crepes.) - Appetiser Platter of Braised Duck, Octopus, Pork Belly and Tofu: The Braised Duck and Octopus items were good, and were all gone in no time. - Pomfet with leek and radish stew: This was the best dish of the meal. The manager had recommended it. The soup gravy went well with white rice and it was flavourful. The pomfret was large and sliced up, fried and cooked in the stock.  - Mustard Leaves with egg white sauce: Mustard leaves are usually bitter. This was done well. The mustard leaves were only slightly bitter and the egg white sauce gave a sweet smooth after- taste. Try it. - Oyster Omelette: This was good. Generous amounts of oysters were in the omelette. I liked this dish. Recommended. - ‘Luo Han Zai’: It was ok. Would order other vegetable dishes for future visits. - Wok-fried ‘Chai-Po Kway Teow’: This was much like your char kway teow. I had better ones elsewhere.             We couldn’t end our meal without dessert. So we ordered the Teochew dessert ‘Or-Nee’. It was well prepared and we finished our desserts in no time.   Try this restaurant, if you are looking for traditional Teochew delights.

Cosy ambience suited for reunions

For full review, please visit http://www.makeyourcaloriescount.com/2014/02/sg-crystal-jade-golden-palace-cosy.html

With the abundance of Chinese restaurants out there each offering their Chinese New Year dinner sets, diners are absolutely spoilt for choice. Of Teochew origin, we decided to return to our roots. Focusing on the cooking techniques of poaching, steaming and braising, Teochew cuisine is however often influenced by the Cantonese-style of cooking, therefore do not be surprised if you find elements of the latter.

Stepping into the exquisitely designed Crystal Jade Golden Palace for the first time, we quickly realised that it was not the usual Crystal Jade franchise restaurants that are readily spotted at shopping malls. Offering Teochew and Cantonese-style fine dining with a contemporary twist, the menu would please those who are health conscious as it even has a section that offers healthier options. This multiple award-winning restaurant not only specialises in its food offering but more importantly the wide range of fine wines, not forgetting premium Chinese liquor such as maotai.

We were shown to our table, located at a cosy corner of the restaurant which suited us well since it was a small family reunion. The manager left us to deliberate over our preferred dishes and stepped in with his recommendations after a while when he sensed that we were still undecided. He first warmed up to us by conversing to us in various dialects from Cantonese to Teochew and that immediately struck off on the right note. I personally find that it takes passion from one to be able to deliver such dedicated attention and service in your line of work. It is often walking that extra mile, offering that additional personal touch that impresses customers and turn them into regulars as a result.

Hearty Five Treasures Yu Sheng | S$78.80/++
This was highly recommended overly its normal Salmon Yu Sheng which was offered at S$43.80 so we were highly piqued about how special this Yu Sheng was and decided to let our taste buds do the testing! The fresh vegetables were hand-shredded and we really enjoyed the thick and generous slices of salmon and hamachi (otherwise known as yellowtail).

This was initially offered only to the VIP guests when it was first launched in 2012 but due to popular demand, it is available to public at a slight premium. This was however well justified with the premium ingredients used, such as hazelnut oil and the quality fresh fish. For the health conscious, expect to be delighted as the unusual addition of pine nut, sunflower seed and pumpkin seed makes this a must-try. The homemade sweet plum sauce was so good that I had to find out what was in it and later did I realise that honey and fresh lemon juice was added to control and create the balance in flavours. Apparently it was so good that some of the staffs use it as a spread for their bread!

A great idea for CNY dinners

See the full review at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2014/01/invited-tasting-revisit-crystal-jade.html

The Crystal Jade Group of restaurants is one of those reliable chain-name restaurants that one can always depend on for a good meal. Of the lot, the mixed Teochew-Cantonese Golden Palace branch at Paragon is the most refined and my pick for a meal that'll definitely impress. The imposing décor with deep red and s*** black hues, luxurious chandeliers and large cavernous hall, is matched by the exquisite fare and generally faultless service.

We were here for an invited tasting, and returned twice to sample their festive CNY offerings.

1) Hearty Five-Treasure Yusheng ($128.80): best yusheng ever. Golden Palace's rendition is truly one-of-a-kind, with luxurious gold leaves, juicy mangoes, and hazelnut oil all upping the ante in extravagance. The large portion can easily feed up to 12 persons.

2) Deep Fried Japanese Amadai ($54 at $5.50 per 37.5gm): some Jap delicacy, u hv to eat the scales and all. A lightly adorned dish made delicious by great frying and really fresh ingredients.

3) Stewed Canadian Lobster ($88 at $11 per 100gm): that velvety halibut fish gravy is awesome, it complemented the delicate springy flesh of the lobster

4) Sauteed Kurobuta Pork Strips ($28): note that this is an ADVANCED order, so remember to call ahead to pre-order this. Very scrumptious, the succulent pork strips were uniquely fragranced with extra virgin coconut oil

5) Braised Sea Cucumber and Scallop ($68): sea cucumber was braised to chewy perfection, and the scallops were cooked just right, but its pricing was quite excessive

6) Glutinous Rice Cake ($23.80 for whole cake) or "nian gao": steamed and lightly tossed with shredded coconut and peanuts. It didn't have that yucky sickeningly sweet and slightly stale after-taste present in most nian gaos. I don't usually eat this, even during the CNY festive period, but I actually finished this up, so that's saying something.

Fancy place with just slightly over average food that is overpriced

On the whole, I would sum up crystal jade golden palace as a really cute, fancy place with mediocre, just slightly above average cantonese food that is definitely overpriced. Using my favourite Crystal jade dining in as a benchmark, the quality of food served here is less good and more expensive as it is smaller in portion. Dim sum too, isn’t as delicious as dining in. It’s quite a pity as this restaurant is really pretty I thought. Spent about $62 per person here.
