Parents' Day Promotion at Crystal Jade (till 30 Jun 2019)

Crystal Jade Group makes it easy to celebrate the rocks of our families, our parents, with their Parents' Day Promotion that runs through 30 June 2019.

For those who haven't visited Crystal Jade in a long time, the group's new Group Executive Chef Martin Foo has revamped most of the menu through the concepts with a nod to contemporary and unique twists, but still sticking to comforting, familiar flavours.


A definite highlight from our tasting menu includes the Double Boiled Giant Grouper Head with Ginger and Premium Nan Zao ($22 per person).

Made using the heads of collagen-rich giant grouper and premium black dates, its humble, clearness is but an illusion. Lips meet a delicious, full-bodied and nourishing liquid, and leave coated with a slight sheen from all the collagen.

Available at one-Michelin-starred Crystal Jade Golden Palace at Paragon. Set menus also available, start $128 per person.


In the style of a Peking Duck crepe, chef plates up a filling of crispy fried beancurd matched with a rich, fatty slab of foie gras—a treat best enjoyed with your fingers.

The fried beancurd was slightly salty when we had it, so if you're sensitive to that, best to remove some from your little indulgent 'burrito' of Pan-seared Foie Gras with Crispy Beancurd wrapped with Crepe ($16.80 per person).

Available at soon-to-be reopened Crystal Jade Palace at Takashimaya. Set menus also available, start $98 per person.


The Deep-fried Grouper Fillet ($26.80 for 4 pieces) brings together mini celebrations of spiced, crunchy fried garlic bits with the mellow sweetness of prawn paste sandwiched between grouper fillets. Addictive and had us scraping for remaining garlic bits.

Available at all Crystal Jade Kitchen outlets. Set menus also available, start $68 for two, to $498 for a table of 10.


I’ve always been a fan of tangy-vinegary flavour profiles, so I dived straight into the Deep-fried Yellow Croaker with Sweet Vinegar Sauce & Pine Nuts ($29.80). Masterfully executed, fresh yellow croaker fish made the perfect canvas for its coat of appetising sauce melding together vinegar, hawthorn, and red wine lees.

Available at group’s newest dining concept Crystal Jade Jiang Nan. Set menus also available .Exclusively for Jadeite members only, complimentary Lychee mocktails will be served to mothers and fathers with any order of a Parents’ Day set menu at Crystal Jade Jiang Nan.


Chef’s Chargrilled Iberico Pork Rib ($26.80 per portion) is delicious from taste of smoke and garlic, but the spotlight is actually on its accompanying piquant, garlicky Mala dip—which I’ll recommend saving some for the rice.

Available at all Crystal Jade fine dining concepts.


The Supreme Fried Rice with Prawn, Bacon, and Lychee wrapped in Lotus Leaf ($30) will probably divide views. Sweetness from the lychee has already permeated the rice and was sufficient, but the generous addition of chopped up lychee tipped the balance between sweet and savoury for me—and that’s where some of that tasty Mala dip comes in handy.

Available at soon-to-be reopened Crystal Jade Palace at Takashimaya. Set menus also available, start $98 per person.


For diners at their fine dining brands, try also their Lychee Begonia Flower-shaped Pastry ($11.80 for 3 pieces), or better yet their inventive Crème Brûlée Ginger Egg Tart, a delicate yet refreshing pastry decadently crowned with bird’s nest ($6.80/piece).
