Crystal Jade Kitchen @ Holland Village

This was dinner two Sunday nights ago. It was sort like a big family gathering with our parents, uncle & aunt and cousins.

If you remember it was a warm night and no one wants to slave in the hot kitchen. We went to Holland Village for dinner instead. It seems that everyone decided to eat out on the hot night too! There were long queues everywhere. It was a 40 minute wait because we needed a table for 11.

The rest went walking around while I queue and waited. It was ok for me because I was playing "We Rule" on the iPhone. Anyone of you playing this game too? :-)

We finally got our tables and looking through the menu and we ended up ordering the "Reunion Set Meal". It looked rather attractive!


This was the BBQ Combination. It was lovely. We have always liked their BBQ meats. I like their mustard dip! It gives you this rush in your head as you eat it!

The Braised Shark's Fin Soup with Seafood & Bamboo Pith.

This is interesting. Can you guess what this is?
It's Hokkien Fried Rice.

It's Fried Rice topped with Seafood &  Mushroom Gravy. Some people call it "Mui Fan".
It's kinda nice if you are those who likes gravy stuff.

Braised Sea Cucumber. That was what it said on the menu. But looking at this now, doesn't it look like mushrooms? It's around two weeks ago and I forgot what we ate. hehe...

This was really delicious. Steamed Live Prawns with Vermicelli and Minced Garlic.

I loved it because there were loads of garlic on it! The vermicelli was delicious because it  had soaked up all the sauce. The prawns were easy to eat too (no peeling required). You can't really go wrong with live prawns :-)

Simmered Chinese Spinach with 2 types of Eggs in Superior Stock. I think this is now many people's favourite veg + soup dish.

By now we were already quite full! It was probably the starchy sharks fin and the fried rice!
Oh no.... We realized there were 2 more dishes coming and a dessert coming too!

This was the Deep-fried Tilapia with Minced Pork. It was tasty, it had curry leaves so it was fragrant and a bit spicy. What a pity we were too full to really enjoy it.
 
We realised there are also doing the 2 small fish instead of 1 big fish here too.

Finally the last dish was served. Crispy Roasted Chicken.
We were just too full to eat the whole chicken. We asked for a takeaway. :-)

But no matter how full, everyone seem to have some space for the mango pudding!

There was great fellowship at the table which made it very enjoyable.

The 10 persons menu is meant for 10 very hungry people. We had 3 or 4 small eaters and we just could not finish the food. :-)
