met a friend for a chat at food loft clementi ave 3 blk 443 this evening on 19.3.2015。 i wanted to try the laksa and order a S$4 bowl from teck hin fishball noodles for myself. my friend was having dinner at home afterwards, so we decided to just order a S$3 xiaolongbao 小笼包 from joyful palace 怡乐宫 to share. this S$3 xiaolongbao 小笼包 (for 5 pieces) turned out to be pretty good.^^ the soup was very sweet, as good as any of the restaurants crystal jade, imperial treasure, canton paradise. skin was ok not the smoothest but pretty good still. meat was tasty, kind of a bit big but then what was there to complain if it was nice? joyful palace 怡乐宫 is located at the food loft @ clementi ave 3 blk 443. in addition to dimsum it sells the hong kong roast meats and also ramen with the roast as well as dan dan mian & mala chicken ramen. not sure if i would try those if i am there, more likely to take the laksa.^^

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.

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

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.

What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
