Flavours of Chinese Spices @ Jade Restaurant, The Fullerton Hotel

Master Chef Leong Chee Yeng and his culinary team are back again with a medley of Cantonese signatures for their latest “Flavours of Chinese Spices” promotion. Available for a limited time only, from now till 30 November 15, this six course set dinner meal pays tribute to the powerhouse of Chinese spices that are an integral part of any Chinese dish but would usually go understated.

We started with an appetizing Tasty Trio Combination made up of a Chilli Crab Meat Ball deep fried to a crisp but stuffed with a generous amount of shredded sweet crab meat smothered in a spicy thick sauce that fills your mouth when you bite through the exterior. The middle was a refreshing Pomelo and Mango Salad topped with a skillfully- carved Crispy Peking Duck Skin while the last item of Crispy Prawn intrigued with its coating of Chocolate Mayonnaise and Oat that was part nutty, subtly sweet and interestingly tasty.


The next was a comforting bowl of Superior Broth, obviously boiled and simmered for a copious amount of time to produce that rightfully thick, rich and collagen-packed liquid goodness. Brimming with quality ingredients such as Braised Abalone, Sea Cucumber, Duo Fish Maw and Dried Scallops, I would like to believe that my complexion benefitted from every spoonful of this nutrient- dense broth.


The Pan Fried Seven Spiced Garoupa which featured a golden-brown fillet marinated in seven quality Chinese spices was well received at our table. The highlight had to be that weaving layer of sliced ginger, chilli and spring onion, fried to a crisp and complimented the flaky white fish beneath it quite effortlessly and I adored the homemade sauce at the side which added a three-dimensional touch of flavour to it overall.


Moving on to the Oven-Baked Lemongrass Flavoured Pork Ribs which was delightfully tender and literally finger-licking good. The distinguishable citrus notes of the lemongrass brought out the meatiness of the pork in a light and delicate way while that base of smooth sweet potato mash added not just aesthetic qualities but also a creamy finish to this evenly cooked pork rib.


My favourite dish was the Simmered Egg Noodle with River King Prawn in Traditional Style which warmed my belly instantly. The plus-sized prawns were bursting with sweetness and peeled off its shell quite easily but surprisingly, it was the egg noodles that stole my heart with its sufficiently chewy texture and nostalgic homemade oriental flavour.


We ended our gastronomical spiced journey with a Chilled Roselle Sorbet accompanied with Glutinous Rice Ball with Walnut Filling– fancy looking and certainly unique. Inspired by the medicinal plant, Roselle, this dessert was not just charming to the eyes but also packed with numerous health benefits, especially for the ladies. Complete the experience with that QQ- doughy textured glutinous rice ball and you are set for the evening.
