Jade Restaurant Fullerton Hotel Nostalgic Feasts

As a tribute to Singapore’s golden jubilee, Master Chef Leong Chee Yeng of The Fullerton Hotel’s Jade Restaurant is introducing his SG50 Nostalgic Feast Menu inspired by traditional Cantonese dishes from the ’70’s and ’80s. The menu is curated in partnership with Wong Ah Yoke, the highly respected restaurant reviewer and food critic at The Straits Times.

When you look at the pictures of the dishes below, you will undoubtedly be able to recognise elements of yesteryear which we did not even realise have quietly disappeared with time’s passing. For example, when was the last time you saw coloured rimmed keropok adorning a banquet dish?

Wong Ah Yoke chose dishes that he used to eat as a youngster growing up in the 1960s and 1970s, where the dishes were served only at banquets and special occasions. For example, Roast Chicken or Chinese Eight Treasures Duck was served mainly at weddings or birthday banquets. Roast Chicken I believe I’ve seen served over the years, but I don’t recall 8 Treasures Duck at all! Do you?

Of course, this being Jade Restaurant at the Fullerton Hotel, all the dishes are jazzed up and presented exquisitely.

Jade Restaurant - Lobster Fruit Salad, Traditional Fried Prawn Roll (Hei Zhor), Fried Crab with Eggs, Crispy Kung Pao Chicken , Fried Pork Rib with Garlic and Red Fermented Bean (1)

Combination Lobster Platter : Lobster Fruit Salad, Traditional Fried Prawn Roll (Hei Zhor), Fried Crab with Eggs, Crispy Kung Pao Chicken with Cashew Nuts, Fried Pork Rib with Garlic and Red Fermented Bean

Don’t mind the messy table, but this elicited oohs and ahs from all the seasoned bloggers. I for one love the cold platters during wedding dinners.

Kung Pao Chicken with Cashew Nuts served in Buddha's Bowl

Crispy Kung Pao Chicken with Cashew Nuts $32

Kung Pao Chicken, always a crowd favourite for its smooth and tender diced chicken in sweet sauce. Check out the intricately carved figurines, which are hand-crafted by Chef Leong himself!

Jade Restaurant - Quail & Scallop in Melon Boiled in Clear Soup

Jade Restaurant - Nostalgic Steamed “Badin Fish’ with Special Sauce

Nostalgic Steamed “Badin Fish’ with Special Sauce $9 per 100gram

Jade Restaurant - Pan-Fried King Prawns with Special Sauce

Pan-Fried King Prawns in Special Sauce $23 per 220 gram

One of my favourite dishes for the evening. I really liked the special sauce, where the prawns are marinated with salt, dark soya sauce, and coated in Chinese barbecue sauce, tomato ketchup and sesame oil.

Jade Restaurant - (Roast Chicken) $32 for half, $58 for whole (2)

Roast Chicken $32 for half, $58 for whole

Here’s the nostalgic chicken with the colour rimmed keropok. Loved this dish for its simplicity and crispy paper thin chicken skin.

Jade Restaurant - Chinese Eight Treasures Duck

Chinese Eight Treasures Duck $90 per duck (please order 24 hours in advance)

I didn’t particularly appreciate the duck though, as I thought it was too embellished with too many things stuffed inside.

Jade Restaurant - Arhat’s Feast for Vegetarians

Arhat’s Feast for Vegetarians $28

This is a jazzed up version of the Lo Hon Chai that those who sometimes eat vegetarian may be familiar with. I’ve always liked Lo Hon Chai for its mixture of crunchy vegetables in a savoury sauce, plus the gluten bits! Love the gluten bits!

Jade Restaurant - Pan-fried Red Bean Cake, Chinese Sugar Egg Puff, Steam Layer Cake with Salted Egg and Nuts

Pan-Fried Red Bean Cake $10, Chinese Sugar Egg puff $10 and Steamed Layered Cake with Salted Egg and Nuts

Alas, nostalgic desserts that I don’t mind bidding adieu to. I much prefer mango sago and the likes. Smile

Jade Restaurant - Braised Bird's Nest with Almond Toufu

Braised Bird’s Nest with Almond Toufu $32

This dessert, every single person at the table finished to the last drop. A few were on the verge of turning the glass upside down to get every last shred of the bird’s nest! Definitely a very good idea to finish the heavy feast with something as refreshing and light as this.
