Jade 玉楼 @ Fullerton

Fullerton Hotel, since its reopening, has been quite disappointing with its F&B offerings. While its sister establishment One Fullerton was much better, the hotel was not somewhere one would go for a gourmet dinner. Until Jade went for a revamped.

For 11 years, Jade restaurant has offered diners an authentic Chinese cuisine of exceptional quality and hospitality of unforgettable warmth, amply earning for itself the revered reputation of its precious gemstone namesake. With its revamp in 2017, the restaurant upped the ante by unveiling a more focused culinary direction by Executive Chinese Chef Leong Chee Yeng and new interiors, enhancing the dining experience for connoisseurs.

Diners may now sample a menu that takes inspiration from the Tang Dynasty in an elegant Tiffany blue and white setting. First timers to Jade Restaurant have it easy when it comes to placing your orders. The restaurant has curated a menu highlighting Jade’s ‘Eight Signature Dishes’ which includes must-try items like the Crispy Roasted Pork Belly, Deep-fried Prawn with Wasabi Mayonnaise and Sautéed Diced Beef Tenderloin.

Their signature wasabi may coated deep fried prawn. The tangy mango salsa gave it that dimension of sweetness.

This was the highlight of the evening. The fatty cod fish was matched with the preserved cabbage which took away some of that greasiness.

“Interesting” presentation, almost like a coffee shop roast store. Presentation aside, the pork belly crackling was crispy and the meat tasty.

Sorry, the photo was blurry because my guests were all complaining about my photo taking. The rice was like 京都排骨, a savoury sweet and sour sauce that you can mopped with the provided mantou.

Think of the Honey Caramelised Banana like a piece of goreng pisang coated with honey. This was the highlight of the dessert. The classic Chilled Cream of Mango with Green Lime Jelly was updated with bits of lime jelly instead of grapefruit and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Not to be confused with the Jade Dragon in Macau, that’s the 3 Star Michelin restaurant and the two have no relation at all except they both served Cantonese cuisine. The price here is Micheline level, but the quality is not quite there yet (just Plates).
