Ju Feng Garden Kitchen 聚丰园小厨 @ 7 Tanjong Pagar Plaza
In my previous post almost a year ago…
Ju Feng Garden Kitchen serves wonderful cze char with authentic local taste at very reasonable price and friendly service. It was so good some of our kakis (Wilson Wong is one) are planning their own family trips there. As Su Suling said, “Cooking is excellent. Highly recommended.”
My children were out since late morning, house hunting for the newly engaged (Ryan and Valerie), and they left the dining venue to me. By late evening, Vanessa texted me that they were almost done with the last viewing and ask where the venue for dinner would be.
Erhm… Truth be told I haven’t planned but I remembered Adrian Aw Yong’s posting a promotion from Ju Feng a couple of days ago and called to ask him if the promo was still on. Grrrring….
Ryan loves crab and Ju Feng had a crab promotion for their new location – 2 crabs for S$25 and 3 crabs for S$29. That’s a ridiculously good offer! We had to go for it!
Grrring… ring… “Hello…”
“Hello Adrian, is the crab promo still on?”
“Yes, it is. But let me check if there’s any crabs left. I’ll call you back in a couple minutes.”
Keeping my fingers crossed…
The children had not eaten at Ju Feng Garden Kitchen before. They had not had any good cze char lately and I was hoping that Ju Feng with it’s crab offering would satisfy them.
“They just sold their last crabs. Let me see if I could get some. Call you back.”
My children were getting impatient about getting an answer from me, “Where are we eating?” They were very hungry by now.
“Where are you?”
“We’re at Sejong. Came to take some documents.”
“Ah, good. I found a cze char place at Tanjong Pagar, within walking distance from Sejong.”
“Is it good?”
I didn’t answer that direct question as I couldn’t. From my previous experience, the food was very good but this time, Adrian had dutifully informed me Ju Feng has a new and very young chef.
“There’s a crab promotion and Ryan loves crabs and it’s nearby so we’ll go there. Call you once I’m in the cab.” I hung up the phone.
Adrian called again and gave me the good news. He managed to get some crabs! Phew!!!
The kids didn’t know I knew Adrian and were surprised that I was familiar with the lady boss Mdm Zhao (Adrian’s girlfriend’s mother) when we finally reached there.
Kyung (Ryan’s younger brother) asked, “Did they forget the fried rice? If so, I’ll order plain rice.” I thought he wanted to cancel the fried rice because obviously we had a lot of food on our table. So needless to say but I will say it anyway…
We loved the food and service here!
I doubt we were given special treatment which they wouldn’t do for others. I know these people and know that kindness and politeness are in their nature. That’s just how they are, sincere.
I told Adrian I was very happy with Ah Liang’s cooking and would do a post on tonight’s meal. Guess what he said?
“You must tell your readers that we do the marketing ourselves. I woke up in the middle of the night to go to Jurong Fishery Port and choose every single fish and seafood myself.”
And so I did 😉

Perhaps we were lucky to have ordered all the right dishes but it is rare to find a cze char stall where everyone at the table agree that every single dish was well executed. Don’t just take my word for it.
