It was a bit confusing getting to Crystal Jade Prestige because it is not exactly located within the underground Marina Bay Link Mall. Rather, the private lift to the second floor where the restaurant is located is situated at Ground Plaza outside the mall itself.
Once we got there, we quickly ordered and enjoyed the champagne. The 10 course weekend brunch costs $58 for adults and $28 for children. It is an additional $40 for free flow of exquisite Veuve Clicquor Yellow Label champagne. Also, you may also opt for their Signature Tea Smoked Roasted Duck for $48, instead of the usual $78.
We had a choice of five Dim Sum:
Poached Beancurd Skin, rolled with prawns in superior broth.
Steamed Shrimp Dumpling with Black Garlic.
Steamed Shanghai Xiao Long Bao. The XLBs were really juicy!
Baked Abalone & Chicken Pastry. I really loved the pastry, which was buttery and flaky!
Steamed Pork & Shrimp Dumpling, topped with caviar.
Following that, we had a choice of appetiser:
Deep Fried Cod Fish Cube with Passionfruit Sauce. I found the sauce lacking as there was not enough flavour.
Our choice of Roast was Soya Sauce Chicken with Rose Wine. I really enjoyed this, especially with the chive dip that accompanied it.
Out of the three soups, we went with Chef’s Special Soup of the Day, which was black chicken soup. My sis could not stop raving about this.
There were plenty of Wok-Fried Dishes to choose from and we decided on Simmered Fillet of Garoupa with Egg White and Sake. It was quite sad that the fish was a bit bland, but the egg white and broccoli were superb.
Last but not least, for dessert we had Chilled Mango Puree with Pomelo and Sago.
The brunch is in conjunction with the upcoming Fathers’ Day. It is available on Saturdays and Sundays, 11:30am to 3pm, till 26 June 2016.
