Big name Executive Chef Lai Ching-Shing of One Michelin Star Cantonese restaurant YUÈ at City Garden Hotel, Hong Kong has once again teamed up with Jade Restaurant‘s Master Chef Leong Chee Yeng from The Fullerton Hotel Singapore to deliver an unmissable collaboration dinner – titled “A Culinary Feast of Two Cities“.
Chef Lai Ching-Shing is no stranger to the Cantonese culinary scene in Asia. With 30 years of culinary experience in China, Singapore and Taiwan, he has brought great success to YUÈ after having won its first star in the world-renowned culinary and travel guidebook 2012 edition, the restaurant continue to receive several prestigious awards and accolades from 2011 to 2014.
The Fullerton Hotel Singapore‘s Master Chef Leong Chee Yeng has nothing short of awesome culinary prowess as well. He was nominated for the “Asian Cuisine Chef of The Year”, Awards of Excellence category at the World Gourmet Summit this year and also helped Jade earned the top spot as the winner at G Restaurant Awards 2015’s Awards of Excellence category.
To help celebrate these wonderful milestones, the two stellar chefs are joining forces to prepare the city’s most epic cuisine for your enjoyment. From 2 to 8 November 2015, the Jade Restaurant will serve exquisite dishes from the “A Culinary Feast of Two Cities” menu which features a selection of dishes from Chef Lai and Chef Leong’s creations.
Dishes on the a la carte menu start from $10 per person, or you can simply indulge in the special Six-Course Set Dinner Menus for $98 and $118 per person. Below highlights from the set dinner menu B ($98 per person).

Dishes for the evening that standout to me were the Stir-fried Sliced Grouper with Truffle Egg White accompanied with Superior Fish Maw Broth; and the award-winning Steamed Minced Pork with Foie Gras and Scallops. With a complex flavour profile of ingredients that meld together beautifully, I can understand why every one at the table gives a unanimously nod to the two dishes.
The Chilled Fresh Abalone with Chinese Wine, Cherry Tomato in Pomelo Vinegar was simple yet delightful to the abalone lover in me. The Poached Spiced Salt Water Kampong Chicken presents the nostalgic flavours of ‘Nanyang which was almost forgotten – thank you for bringing back those flavours. And desserts, of course a natural highlight for the sweet tooth.
For only 7 nights, ‘A Culinary Feast of Two Cities‘ is a unique collaborative dinner dedicated to showcase the highest quality ingredients and meticulous preparation, allowing you to sample the very best of what Jade Restaurant has to offer with a special guest chef all set to ignite some gastronomical fireworks of two cities.
