Through a good friend’s recommendation, I visited Jade Restaurant over the weekend, which offers the “Delightful Weekend Dim Sum Gourmet Brunch” buffet. Located at The Fullerton Hotel, Jade Restaurant is arguably one of Singapore’s popular venue for reasonably priced dim-sum buffet.
Jade Restaurant doesn’t shout for it’s presence. In fact, it would be quite easy for any passer-by to miss the restaurant due to the understated exterior decoration. However, if you manage to find the “gem”, it tells a rather different story.
The interior of the restaurant consists of the main area and some private rooms to cater for different dining needs. Overall I quite like the spaciousness of the venue.
Its worth noting that the Weekend Dim Sum Gourmet Brunch is valid only on Saturdays & Sundays with 2 separate seating.
- 1st Seating from 11:30am till 1:15pm
- 2nd Seating from 1:45pm till 3:30pm
Prices starts from:
- Normal Weekends: $33++ per adult and $23++ per child (from 6 to 11 years)
- PH / Festive Season: $48++ per adult and $28++ per child(from 6 to 11 years)
All in all, there are more than 50 items of different variety for you to choose from its menu, ranging from Dim Sum, Soup, Appetizers, Main Courses, Rice, Noodles , Congee and of course, Desserts. Here’s what I’ve tried for the day.
From the Dim Sum menu
Steamed Chicken Feet with Oyster Sauce
Deep Fried Prawn with Wasabi Mayo
Guo Tie Dumpling
Beautiful to look at, really delicious to eat. The chives within compliments the pork meat very well and best of all, its not too oily to taste.
Pan-Fried Shrimp Bean Curd Roll
Deep-Fried Golden Cheese Dumpling
Fancy for something cheesy? I reckon not all would love this cheese dumpling due to its sticky texture but its really not too bad.
Crispy Prawn Dumpling
Deep-Fried Taro Paste Wrapped with Truffle and Mushrooms
Generous serving of taro paste and mushrooms, I love the crispy-outside with piping hot ingredients inside.
Crispy Vegetables Spring Roll
Steamed Superior Stock Xiao Long Pau
As usual, eat it while its hot. The Xiao Long Pau here is not the best but definitely worth to make an order from the menu.
Steamed Char Siew Pau
Generous serving of Char Siew within but I would prefer to have a not-so-thick skin around.
From the Soup Menu (One Serving Per Diner)
Hot & Sour Chicken Soup
From the Rice, Noodles and Congee Menu
Congee with Preserved Egg and Shredded Pork
Wok Fried Egg Noodles with Shredded Chicken
When I tried this dish it was a little bit too salty for my taste so if you are ordering this dish, inform the kitchen to go easy on the salt.
From the Appetizer Menu
Crispy Chicken with Dry Chili and Spiced Fragrant Salt
I really like the Crispy Chicken here. It’s not too salty and both the chili and herb leaves bring out the full flavour of the chicken.
From the Main Course menu
Sauteed Seasonal Vegetables
Sweet & Sour Chicken
From the Dessert Menu
Teochew Yam Paste with Coconut Milk
Die-die must try if you love Yam Paste. Served hot, the yam paste is of the right “stickiness” and the coconut milk goes really well with the yam paste. What’s lacking inside is perhaps some ginko nuts!
Mango Sago with Pomelo
For its usual weekend price, I really find it hard to fault any of the food here. I wouldn’t say every single item is fantastic but there are some dishes here worth trying, such as those with added positive descriptions.
To no surprise, it was full house when I visited the restaurant hence I strongly recommend to make at least a 2-week advance booking if you wish to eat here. No doubt, some might find the timing of the seating to be rather tight (with a little bit less than 2 hours to enjoy your food) but this “problem” should be easily overcome by reaching on-time to maximize your eating duration. Try it and you should enjoy the food here. I know I did.
