The newly opened Joyful Palace is like Crystal Jade or Canton Paradise, except that it is in a Coffeeshop. The dimsum is steamed when ordered, the egg tarts are divine with a light, flaky crust and soft egg custard. At just 90cents, they are a real steal.I found the egg tarts similar to the ones at Canton Paradise, at a fraction of the price. They beat Crystal Jade's egg tarts and Tong Heng as well as other old brands. I made a order of 40 of them and the staff got them ready at 9am for me to collect. There is also roast meat, duck, chicken rice and noodle dishes. Have not tried these but the zi char is unique. Eg fried tofu skins stuffed with fruit and meat, pumpkin and salted egg ribs, etc. The zi char is again, of restaurant variety, not the normal coffeeshop zi char. Many unique dishes like Calamari, flavoured with curry leaves. Everything was fragrant and tasty, without being overpowering. Vegetable dishes were also just right and flavourful. I eat here 2-3x a week and like the variety and prices. Dimsum start at 8am, Roasted items at 10am and Zi Char at 2pm.
