Crystal Jade Palace Restaurant (翡翠皇宫酒家) is one of the restaurants under the Crystal Jade group. The restaurant is located at the shopping belt of Orchard Road.
I had strong cravings for Chinese food and we went to Crystal Jade Palace at Ngee Ann City. We were warmly welcomed by the serving staff and ushered to our table. The Crystal Jade Group has many different product brands and Crystal Jade Palace is one of the premium restaurants under the organization.
Spicy French Beans with minced meat (肉松炒玉豆) was one of my favourites. The crunchiness of the french beans and the spicy minced meat gave texture and also taste to the dish. It is best eaten with white rice. (Food rating: 3/5)
Buddha Jumps Over the Wall was a rich and savoury soup. I love the way it was brewed. (Food rating:3/5)
BBQ Combination of three meat selections (燒味三拼 － 叉燒，脆皮燒肉，燒鴨) - I never fail to order the BBQ combination whenever I am dining at one of Crystal Jade's restaurants. This time, I chose duck instead of chicken, roasted pork and char siew pork. I could even eat it alone with white rice. (Food rating: 3.5/5)
Personally, I found the Scallop with Cashew Nuts (蔥油海蜇拌小黃瓜) were a little weak. I expected to taste sweetness of the scallops. However, I did not taste it. (Food rating: 2.5/5)
Pan-Fried Sea Bass Fillet (煎X鱸魚件) amazed me greatly. What amazes me is the sweet and fresh the fish fillet is. It was delicious and enjoyable. The sauce complemented the fish so much that the entire dining experience was superb. (Food rating: 3.5/5)
The last dish, Ee-Fu Noodles with scallops and egg white (鮮帶子西伊面), was finally served. The ee fu noodles were well cooked and then mixed with egg white and scallops. The dish was suitable to be eaten as an entree. Although the dish was delicious, we were bloated after french beans, BBQ combination, scallops and fish fillet. We could not finish the food. It was best to eat it with their spicy chilli. It added that oomph to the whole dining experience. (Food rating: 3/5)
