Having established itself as a top dining destination for refined traditional and contemporary Chinese cuisine, Crystal Jade Prestige has recently unveiled a refreshed menu comprising new specialty creations, recommended dishes from recently-conferred One-MICHELIN star sister establishment, Crystal Jade Golden Palace, as well as introduced a Signature Weekend Brunch which is available every weekend; all compelling and tantalising reasons to return for a meal with a view overlooking Marina Bay, over and again.
NEW Crystal Jade Prestige Specialities
Having impressed diners with expertly-prepared and artfully-plated plates that range from comfort foods to exquisite delicacies, the culinary team has crafted more tempting dishes to satisfy discerning palates.
Pique the palate with appetisers like Chilled organic tomatoes with sesame sauce ($10.80); cherry tomatoes with a delightful burst of fragrant and savoury sesame within, and a dim sum menu of well-loved classics; some of which are jazzed up with interesting touches, the Prestige Signature dim sum platter ($10.80/portion of 4 items) comprises four pretty-in-pastel inventive steamed items – Prawn & carrot dumpling with black truffle, Assorted mushroom dumpling, Osmanthus dumpling with prawn and celery and Water chestnut dumpling with olive and parsley.
Undoubtedly the show-stopper among the additions, the new Classic Pipa duck ($18/reg, $28/half, $48/whole) and Prestige Pipa ($18/reg, $28/half, $48/whole) are highly-recommended.
First butterflied to allow better penetration of flavours from the 10-hour homemade spice blend marinade, each duck is then blanched and basted with golden maltose sugar and vinegar, air-dried for another 10 hours before roasted to a perfect crisp finish.
The Prestige Pipa duck rendition is brushed with an additional coat of fermented beancurd sauce before roasting; the sauce imparts an extra umami taste to the slightly fatty duck. Presented in its namesake mandolin shape, both variations of duck are also available as a duo platter; Best of both worlds ($48/whole).
Other highlights include a fragrant Stir-fried assorted mushrooms with basil in claypot ($22/small, $33/medium, $44/large), lusciously-sauced Braised American beef with Chinese yam and red date ($28/small, $42/medium, $56/large), and succulent Grilled cod with fresh lemon lime salt ($16.80/person).
Equally satisfying as a one-dish meal for one or for sharing among fellow diners is Crystal Jade Prestige’s new Crispy noodle with seafood in superior sauce ($12/portion); featuring fragrant deep-fried egg noodle with scallop and prawn paired with a luscious robust ‘golden’ gravy.
Sweet temptations are served in the form of Coconut jelly with fresh milk in coconut ($8.80); a refreshing chilled dessert with coconut flesh, and a fluffy-soft Steamed pandan bun with green tea custard ($6.80/portion of 4); a pandan-infused exterior enveloping a sweet-savoury molten lava filling of quality matcha or green tea, and salted egg yolk.
