Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The Crystal Jade Kitchen has re-opened its doors at the newly renovated Great World mall. And to mark its new chapter, the brand has rebranded to Crystal Jade Hong Kong Kitchen, debuting a contemporary space with fresh additions to the menu. The place, dressed up with splashes of pink and modern furnishings, you’ll find unique creations that include sticks of turnips ($5.30) stained pink with roselle and marinated in a refreshing mixture of sour plum and orange peel, a Scotch egg-inspired dish where a marinated egg comes covered in prawn paste and deep-fried ($5.80), pan-fried pumpkin and yam cake ($5.30), and sautéed Chinese spinach with prawn paste and studded with fish roe ($16.80).
Beyond the inventive, other additions to the refresh menu still remain true to Crystal Jade’s roots of serving traditional Cantonese fare. For carbs, you can choose to have your rice topped with pork lard ($2.80) or scallion and ginger ($2.80) – both fragrant on its own, but better when paired with the restaurant’s signature roast meats. Or slurp down some comforting congee – the rice porridge here is boiled down to a smooth, slurp-worthy gruel, with new flavours include one that comes boiled with live prawns and salted egg ($23.80) or another stirred with abalone, shredded kampong chicken, and conpoy ($28.80). Don't forget to save room for the homemade tofu ($16.80) made with organic soy milk and eggs, and served with bits of prawns, salted radish, and dried shrimps for texture. Be the first to sample these new dishes at Great World, before they are launched across various Crystal Jade Hong Kitchen outlets islandwide in mid-April.
Looking for an afternoon snack? You'll find a retail selection of freshly baked Hong Kong pastries for takeaway – exclusive only to the Great World outlet. Choose from classic egg tarts (from $1.80), baked chicken mushroom pie (from $2.10), Hokkaido milk tart (from $1.90), and the rare treat of Sha Qi Ma (from $1.50) made with fried dough pieces in sugar syrup.
