For some, enjoying delicious cuisine is more than simply sampling the dishes and savouring the flavours that greet the palate. Over at the Jade restaurant in the iconic Fullerton Hotel Singapore, enjoying the Cantonese delicacies also brings along with it the culture, heritage and values that have helped shape the restaurant. Nine years after it first welcomed diners, the restaurant has updated its décor and menu that is said to enhance the “dining experience for connoisseurs of Cantonese style dining.”
The term ‘Eight Treasures’, which is derived from a Tang Dynasty dramatic work, stands as the inspiration for the restaurant’s fresh new décor and menu. “With this revamp, we have sought to refocus our culinary concept and further seal Jade as the destination for exceptional Chinese dining. The refocused culinary concept will also poise it as the social centre for business lunches, family gatherings and even weddings,” said Cavaliere Giovanni Viterale, General Manager of The Fullerton Heritage.
Chinese Executive Chef Leong Chee Yeng, who leads the team that whips up the soulful items that have been enjoyed by patrons over the last decade, has also been a source of inspiration for the restaurant’s décor. As a skilled ceramicist, Chinese painter and calligrapher, his 18 ceramic pieces line the walls of the restaurant — and interesting touch that compliments the jade colour scheme of the restaurant. Alongside the artworks, the interior designer of the establishment used the chef’s table centre piece that he once created of gelatine and sugar as the basis for the newly commissioned wallpaper.
Embodying the theme of ‘Eight Treasurers’, is a tantalising menu that consists of eight signature dishes. Using only the finest ingredients, Chef Leong and his team conjure up authentic Cantonese-style dishes that often require labour-intensive processes. With dedication and attention to detail, diners are able to enjoy classic dishes such as the Crispy Roasted Pork Belly, Deep-Fried Prawn with Wasabi Mayonnaise, Double-boiled Dried Seafood in Superior Broth and Sautéed Diced Beef Tenderloin.
The Jade restaurant offers lunch and dinner set menus that begin from SGD$58++, as well as an a la carte menu. For more information or to make reservations, head to Fullerton Hotel Singapore.
