Dim Sum @ Crystal Jade Kitchen (翡翠小厨) Tampines Mall
It’s been a while since I had dim sum in a proper restaurant. I say this because one can get dim sum in kopitiams and food courts but the mass produced fare tasted nothing close to those of an established restaurant’s Hong Kong-styled dim sum.
Crystal Jade Kitchen is one of those establishments that is nearly as good as those from Hong Kong. The pricing is also affordable to most folks. Here’s what I had recently… Dim Sum @ Crystal Jade Kitchen (翡翠小厨) Tampines Mall with Jerry. I must admit we had ordered slightly more than we can finish but I was greedy after a long dry spell from proper Chinese fare.
My family started dining at Crystal Jade in 1991 at the now defunct Cairnhill Hotel. We were regulars eating there about 4 times a week for many years before they became a restaurant-chain. Throughout the 20 odd years, I have always enjoyed my meals at most of Crystal Jade’s outlets except for the Korean food experience at NEX Serangoon. The food was so so but the service at that outlet was terrible! I haven’t been back since. I know better places for Korean BBQ.
Crystal Jade (翡翠) chain of restaurants has made a name for itself with its Cantonese-style dim sum, congee, noodles, rice dishes, Chinese roast delights and other Cantonese “small eats” specialties. It started with traditional Cantonese and Teochew cuisine but has grown and diversified to include many different kinds of dining and culinary concepts i.e. bakeries, casual and fine dining, northern Chinese specialities, Korean food and in recent years, the C-Jade Viet Café IN located in Bugis.
I got this off their website’s promotions announcement tab so do check out the following to see if it is still available:
PIONEER SPECIAL – 50% OFF DIM SUM SET
Enjoy any two selected dim sum with any beverage at 50% off from 3pm to 5pm on weekdays. Available at Crystal Jade Jiang Nan, all Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao and Crystal Jade Kitchen (except Suntec City & Causeway Point).
You can almost always find a Crystal Jade Kitchen in every shopping mall. That’s how popular or aggressive they are, hahaha…
Happy eating and bonding 🙂
