was buying a birthday lunch for a friend couple & decided to go Jing for the weekend ala carte buffet lunch on 28.12.2013. Jing is a joint venture by majestic chef yong bing ngen & low lik peng. the location is better however somehow i always find majestic food better. anyhow had not been to jing for many years so thought i would try it out again.
the weekend ala carte buffet is S$48pax, with 1 fee for 3paying using citibank credit card. previously it was S$36pax also with the 1 free promotion but perhaps that was sometime ago. anyway these days most better ala carte buffet would have cost this amount.
previously peking duck was served at a cold cut station. this time it was served as a table order which was preferred. it was competent.
the fish maw soup was good as usual. we also tried the dumpling soup which was very tasty too!
we ordered 3 dim sum – a scallop dumpling, a deep-fried dragon beard scallop dumpling & a abalone crystal dumpling..they were good too.
the korean-styled galbi beef ribs with kimchi (top photo) was good as usual. :chopstic
k:the wasabi prawns were crispy, juicy, good, though my personal preference was for less mayo (like at majestic). the chilean seabass was kind of disappointment as majestic served a very tasty chilean seabass – this one was not firm & flat in taste.
the deep-fried soon hock was competent. the chilli crab was better than i expected as i had previously very poor chilli crab at majestic.
we had the money head dish – quite a meaningless nothing dish for me, just tasting the sweet sour “gong bao” taste.
the sliced beef with sweet basil was poor. most zi char did this better, even the S$9 thai basil beef set at le wu.
the sharkskin “pao fan”, a soupy rice dish, was also a dish that could do w/o, basically just eating carbo.
the mango pomelo dish was very average, nothing like that the 杨枝甘露 at tunglok signature.
overall, my guests felt it was quite a good lunch. i thought i was ok too, though i didn’t really think it was any better than peach garden’s ala carte buffet which was cheaper & had wider choice of food.
i got a birthday cake from swissbake called paradiso, & Jing kept, served & arranged for the birthday boy to bring back the cake.
Not worth the money. I don't mind for the high price they charged if it's first class standard in quality but found the hawker centres or coffee shop stalls can produce better than their chefs. Agree with some reviews said "TWRE" so far.:(
I went here with my wife tonight. I am not gonna say much. I signed the bill as "TWRE", which means "The Worst Restaurant Ever". I think that explains. This restaurant ruins the image of Singapore. Should be out of business as soon as possible.
I went there with two work colleagues - one who was visiting from UK. The view is amazing and it was the only thing that drew us to to the venue. We ordered the Peking Duck which was expensive at $49 and it turned up as a few pieces of skin and meat, dried up pancakes and a few pieces of vegetable - I've never seen such a hideous looking meal nor it it taste good. There are so many places in Singapore to have fantastic duck that also include the meat in another dish ($30 for half a duck elsewhere) so why can't Jing get it right. We also ordered Crabmeat Tofu at $29 but hard pressed to find the crab. The dish was tasteless and inedible and we left it. Although the Kai Lan at $26 was ok, not sure why the pine nuts were added but maybe this is why it's so expensive. The only dish we remostely enjoyed was the Pepper Steak $26 however the serving was incredibly small so didn't go very far. They even had the nerve to charge us $3.80 for a small bowl of crisps - they must be kidding
We will definitely never go back, there are so many excellent restaurants in Singapore we just wouldn't waste our time or our money. Just felt sorry for our out-of-town guest who couldn't eat her dinner. Absolutely no connection with the staff - service was cold and disconnected at best.
