Crystal Jade Prestige Launches New Specialty Dishes
Set against the backdrop of central business district, Crystal Jade Prestige offers a repertoire of Cantonese specialties that have been refined and elevated with modern culinary techniques and incorporate top quality ingredients. This contemporary Chinese restaurant has recently refreshed its menu with new specialty creations. Now it’s time to bring your families over for a good meal!
To begin, Chilled Organic Tomatoes with Sesame Sauce ($10.80) are bursting with sweetness, nuttiness and subtle tanginess. It definitely opens the palate and prepares us for the sumptuous meal ahead.
Everyone was eagerly anticipating the colourful Prestige Dim Sum Platter ($10.80 per portion). The assortment is tempting, comprising of prawn & carrot dumpling with black truffle, assorted mushroom dumpling, osmanthus dumpling with prawn and celery and water chestnut with olive and parsley. These are classic dim sum reinterpreted in a cute way. The dumplings are plump and grease-free. It’s all good.
Undoubtedly, the show-stopper among the additions is the Best of Both Worlds ($48/whole) – a duo platter comprising of Classic and Prestige Pipa duck with fermented beancurd sauce.
I’d be happy with either of these as both are delicious! The butterflied duck is marinated for 10 hours with a homemade spice blend and air-dried for 10 hours to achieve the extraordinary, crackling-crisp skin; the mark of an excellent Chinese roast duck. The duck is basted with golden maltose sugar before roasted to a perfect finish.
The Prestige Pipa rendition is brushed with an additional coat of fermented beancurd sauce which imparts an extra umami boost to the fatty meat. The glistening dark brown skin of each piece says it all.
Not only can you enjoy perfectly- executed ducks, you can also savour a compact selection of specialities from MICHELIN one star restaurant – Crystal Jade Golden Palace. Baked Lamb Rack with Red Wine & Black Pepper ($19/pax) is an east-meets-west creation. A succulent lamb chop is simmered red wine; which adds body and sweetness, and finished with a black pepper sauce. The result is a deep, dark and rich flavour reminiscent of coq au vin.
Other highlights include a fragrant Stir-Fried Assorted Mushrooms with Basil in Claypot ($22 small, $33 medium, $44 large) and Signature Fried Rice ($20 small, $30 medium, $40 large). The fried rice looks unassuming but it’s imbued with the breath of the wok and studded with egg, spring onions, crunchy diced homemade radish and some finely-chopped salted fish.
I know you are already rubbing your belly by now but hey, how can we resist these sweet temptations? Steamed Pandan Bun with Green Tea Custard ($6.80 per portion) is a pandan-infused bun enveloping a creamy molten matcha lava and salted egg yolk; while the Coconut Jelly with Fresh Milk in Coconut ($8.80) is served chilled with coconut flesh. Crystal Jade Golden Palace’s Sugar Coated Yam ($13) is addictive. It’s light yet fragrant, coated with crystallized sugar.
