Delectable Deals - Duck and Dim Sum

Considering that a main course at a swanky western restaurant can cost you over $45, we think the seven-course Peking Duck dinner menu that The Fullerton Hotel recently rolled out is fine dining at desperately great value.

At $58+++ per person, we especially like the tender skinned Peking duck pancakes, supremely smooth truffled chawanmushi (yums!), Peking duck with luscious foie gras and the aromatic, delicate pineapple fried rice with duck and crab meat.

It’s mod-Chinese cooking in the super elegant, old world interior of Jade Restaurant. Don’t forget to accompany the dessert - luscious smooth chilled almond pudding with gingko nut, snow fungus and papaya puree – with a pot of the restaurant’s special chocolate tea ($18). Very heady, subtly sweet, richly aromatic and so so unusual.

Nice! Now if only the chef will just vary the menu once in a while…..

And if you haven't already heard.....

Jade Restaurant is also serving up weekend dim sum buffet lunch on Saturdays and Sundays (11.30 am – 2.30pm) at a gob-smacking $28++ per person. 

The food’s cooked a la minute, and the 23 varieties of dim sum is more than adequate with a decent dose of creative morsels tossed in - Taro Paste wrapped with Truffle and Mushroom, Abalone Siew Mai, Steamed ‘Xiao Long’ Bun, Steamed Shark’s Fin and Scallop Dumpling, Beef Ball with Sun-dried Orange Peel…this is just a teensy little taste. 

The menu also offers some really slurpilicous double-boiled soups that you really shouldn’t miss - We tried them! We know! – even though it’s limited to one bowl per person. (No seconds….sigh!) Just a note of caution though – Chinese tea starts at $8 per person…so drink with care. Oh, and finally – MUST make reservations! MUST!
