Good food with friendly service

From the outside, Jade Palace Seafood Restaurant does not look like much. However, it has a strong following of regulars given its consistently delicious food. The claypot rice, in particular, is one of the best around town IMO. They also have one of the most impressive selection of wines among the Chinese restaurants in town. BYO is also allowed.

We love Jade Palace

Why ? Well, corkage is free and the friendly male captains are happy to help you finish your bottle - always a good sign of a good restaurant !

What else other than a drinking session ? The seafood is fresh. Especially the fish.

In almost all other Chinese restaurants in Singapore, you can see the fish in the fish tanks. When you order a fish, most zombie captains will recommend the expensive and probably frozen one to you, or the particular fish they want to get rid of ASAP !

At Jade palace, when you order a fish, there is an uncle who would bring the live fish from the tank and show it you in a pail for approval before frying the fella. That is fresh fish. That is how you should order a fish in a restaurant.

Most diners under the age of 35 will not be able to discern the quality and freshness of fish. Remember when you were young - always rejecting fish from your mom ?

So go out and have great fun at this place: Noisy, crowded, good seafood and great fun !

Bad Pork Lie

We had a so-called Kurobuta pork char siew.

Said it's from Japan.

It was a complete lie.

The pork didn't even taste like good quality kurobuta from the states.

Let alone Japan.

And we had a scowling manageress attend to our table.

Corkage is free so that's handy.

Fortunately we were also waited on by a waitress Beth who's smart and great.

All 10 service points go to her.

10 years later - still as memorable

I remember my first time at JP since it was not only a good dinner (mmm lobster sashimi) but also the first meal I ever had with my now-wife's family. This was a decade ago. Flash forward to the present and the second time that I've eaten here the in-laws have grown more numerous, but the food is still just as memorable. The dishes here are more traditional and slightly less refined than the high end competitors, but frankly having eaten through most of the Imperial Treasure, Crystal Jade, etc... chains, JP just exudes much more personality and soul.

The ambience is reasonable, and the service decent enough. The food is the clear standout. Try the claypot rice - it's d*** good. Be sure to have the "burnt" rice served as a soup as well. If budget allows- definitely try the Alaskan king crab served two ways. The steamed custard of egg and roe is simply heavenly.

Worst dim sum...ever!

Went there over the last weekend.

I've never tasted dim sum as bad as I had at Jade!

I ordered the century egg pork porridge. What I tasted was almost like water with rice and shreddings of tastless pork.

The xiaolongbao I ordered was bad too. Tasteless..even with the vinegar and ginger!

It shall be the first and last time!
