Cheap & Really Good for Economic Rice

ee my full reviews & photos at = http://chefquak.com/2014/12/02/cheap-really-good-for-economic-rice-joyful-palace-clementi-ave3-on-2dec2014/

went with a friend to try out joyful palace, a coffeeshop at clementi ave 3 (clementi central locality) on 2.12.2014.

i had seen the economic rice when passing & wanted to try this. i had the steamed fish. it was probably the cheap vietnamese pangasius, a cheap catfish, the common supermarket sutchi fillet. i also had the belly pork & spinach. the fish was very good. of course it was not fine dining restaurant standard, but it was equal or better even than what you get at zi char places. the belly pork preparation was not my preferred braise, a bit sweet sauce, but it was really good standard. very nicely done. spinach was quite fine. & it was just S$4.50!  and for that price & the quantity i had, this was excellent actually.

Low priced option for HK style food.

Searched HGW for steamed buns and found this place nearby. The variety of food do they serve is very wide. They serve noodle and rice dishes, dim sum, n cooked dishes at night. dim sum service stop at about 4 p.m. Food: we order two portions of steamed buns and a plate of noodles char siew n roast pork. this is as good as the top hong kong restaurants in singapore. However the steamed buns were good but not memorable. Xiao long pau. value: coffee shop prices. service. The ring the steaed buns to join your table Ambience: lots of fans but still warm

Coffeshop prices, Restaurant cuisine

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.
