I LOVE THE CONGEE!!

For full review with images, pls visit: Plain Food for the Sick ~ Crystal Jade Kitchen


Crystal Jade is a place suitable for casual family meals as older people tend to prefer Chinese food. They serve the BEST congee in Singapore and it is very authentic Cantonese flavour indeed! I will always eat congee from Crystal Jade whenever I am sick / unwell. Thanks Crystal Jade for preparing such wonderful congee!!!

Affordable, quality dim sum - one of my favourites.

Crystal Jade has always been my (my family too) perennial favourite for quality dim sum. They seem to be quite good when it comes to quality control - the standards of dim sum don't fluctuate much despite there being so many outlets in Singapore. The Parkway Parade outlet would be the one I frequent most. 

One would expect to queue for a table if you arrive at the peak hour (i.e. weekends at 12pm) and queuing for a table at this outlet is not a good feeling - you'll be blocking the very narrow entrance and it is extremely stuffy because the entrance leads you to OUTSIDE the mall. Be sure to arrive early. The restaurant, as with most Crystal Jade outlets, is very lively, yet not to the extent of making you feel like you're in a fish market. The staff there are mostly efficient when it comes to taking orders and requests. One major drawback for the Parkway outlet however, would have to be its ventilation system. Sometimes the place can prove to be stuffy and its a slight challenge to consume a hot bowl of porridge in that environment. 

The dim sum has always been good at Crystal Jade. I love their Lor Mai Gai the most. Flavourful with minced meat and eggs inside, the rice is gooey to the right extent (not till it sticks to your chopsticks and hard to break apart) yet not oily. Yum. They also have very nice Custard Buns 流沙包 in which the bun itself is orange in colour and the filling is BRIGHT orange! Looks good. Siu Mai and many other dim sum are fresh and served fast. Their congee is also cooked to perfection, with the right mix of fresh ingredients. I've always wondered if they have a secret recipe to their porridge?

I wouldn't recommend their roasted meats though - not that they aren't good, but the portion isn't worth the price. There're noteworthy ones at other places as well.

Efficiency would be the best word to describe the service standards of Crystal Jade; and quality to describe their food. Good for family lunches.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
