Crystal Jade Prestige Presents 10-Course Weekend Brunch
Mother’s Day is 8th May 2016. You can do better than a dozen carnations for Mother’s Day this year to show Mom how much you love her. This Mother’s Day, Crystal Jade has planned something different. Besides offering the usual set menus at its outlets, the new Crystal Jade Prestige at Marina Bay Financial Centre has launched their Signature 10-course Weekend Brunch from 1 May to 26 June 2016 between 11.30am to 3pm.
Overlooking a picturesque view of the Marina Bay area, make her special day unforgettable with this luxurious weekend brunch. Whether your parents are dim sum fans or would prefer free flow champagne, they can have the best of both worlds with option of free flow Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label champagne.
You can customize your brunch menu by picking 10 items from 5 different categories: appetisers, dim sum, BBQ meat selection, soups, wok-fried dishes and desserts.
Soup is a must when I visit any Chinese restaurant. Of course, it’s definitely our parents’ favourite too. For the weekend brunch, select one soup from three – chef’s special soup of the day, Szechuan hot & sour thick soup or scallop and asparagus thick soup. I like the thick soup that showed off the soft tofu and crunchy asparagus in a flavourful broth.
It would be a mistake, however, to limit yourself to the soups, when you can experience the best chinese food in this new restaurant. Their crisp and unctuous pork belly and BBQ pork with honey won my hearts. They also have a good dim sum selection including poached beancurd skin rolled with prawn in superior broth, steamed dumpling with shrimp & black garlic, steamed shanghai xiao long bao, baked abalone & diced chicken pastry, steamed pork & shrimp dumpling topped with caviar and more.
I was very excited to find chilled pig’s ear in the menu because this dish has become rare over the years. Like bacon strips, the pig’s ear is pressed down like the classic french terrine and sliced thinly. It’s the high gelatin content of the ears that makes the dish work.
Not only do they serve classic Chinese dishes, Crystal Jade Prestige also comes up with contemporary dishes such as crispy chicken with foie gras and mango, deep fried cod fish cube with passionfruit sauce, pan fried quail filled with foie gras sauce and red wine, sauteed prawn with white pine mushroom and black truffle sauce. The pan-fried kurobuta pork with wild fungus is memorable. Chef’s special sauce brightens up the rich, porky interior with umami flavours.
End your meal with chilled desserts like lemongrass jelly & sour plum in lime, chilled black sesame with coconut milk, chilled mango puree with pomelo and sago.
The warm, welcoming service and unique home-style food complete the package. Between mouthfuls, I would scurry over to the full length window and absorb in a beautiful view of the Marina.
Crystal Jade Prestige Signature Weekend Brunch is priced at $58 per person ($48 per person for Jadeite members with payment made using DBS/POSB card), or $98 per person ($88 per person for Jadeite members with payment made using DBS/POSB card), inclusive of free flow of exquisite Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne. Diners partaking in the weekend brunch can also enjoy Crystal Jade Prestige’s signature Tea-smoked roasted duck at just $48 (usual price: $78).
