*Reminder: The food portion in all the pictures are meant for 15 people. However the price mentioned were meant for 10 pax (reference). Prices will be adjusted according to head counts.

After patronizing this restaurant (including those days before I was even born), never once I have complete pictures of the course dinners :S It's very difficult as there will be many eyes staring at me taking pictures of the food.

Four Seasons (四热洴盘) consisting Money Bag (金錢满袋), Jellyfish with Octopus (海蜇日本墨鱼), Stuffed BBQ Chicken Wings (烤鸡翅) and Mini Abalone Stuffed with Fish Paste (攘包贝)

It looks alot because we had 15 people eating in the family LOL. So as I said the portion are based on head counts.

I suggested the combination. There are a lot of other combinations but of course when I had the opportunity to choose, I just choose the ones I like lah! Each one of these variety has been around for donkey years but it is only recently we started ordering it. Practically, I grew up with the Money Bag, my favourite..uhm...snek.

Previously, the honey chicken wings come unstuffed but due to its amount of work, they decided to change it to stuffed wings with fillings that taste like bak kwa or lap cheong. Fish paste sandwiched between a slice of waterchestnut and mini abalone is light on the palate. The crunchy-factor is still there despite the fish paste is soft. The Japanese Tako and jelly fish are just like the ones we had at other place but I believe the sauce was refined.

Shark Fin Soup with Crabmeat and Conpoy (dried scallop)(干贝蟹肉鱼翅, about RM100) is another must have whenever we have dinner there. 15 people so extra money :S


Double boiled Herbal Chicken (药材纸包鸡,RM35)came next after slurping the shark fin soup.

As you can see, lots of herbal 'broth' was produced. The broth is sweet (probably due to the sweet based herbs being used such as honey dates & yuk chuk) and chicken was tender-soft. No wonder mom asked why I ordered all old people dish :S

Time for some vege to kick in after all those meat. Braised Sea Cucumber with Mushrooms and Broccoli (海参冬菇兰花,RM70). I can't believe my grandpa actually say the sea cucumber was pig skin O.o

The so called "pig skin" would be a very expensive one LOL. Mild flavour would be suitable to cleanse one's palate after so many heavy dish.

Another light dish, Steamed Red Snapper (清蒸红獅鱼). Nothing unusual about this but its fresh and the sauce was slurped clean :S This fish costs about RM45 per tail depending on the weight.

Ah yes, the chilled Thousand Island Prawns (沙拉千岛虾 RM80). Perfectly fresh and crunchy with savoury thousand island dressing. Cold and refreshing with apples and mengkuang cubes bedding. The prawn's body shell were removed leaving the tail and the head for presentation purposes.

My uncles and aunties love Jade Palace Fried Noodle. The restaurant's signature noodle (招牌炒面,RM20). Make sure its the egg wantan noodles (全蛋面) upon ordering. Springy noodles with good wok hei. The beauty of this dish is the bean sprouts and specially made egg noodles. The heads and tails were removed, thus they stay crunchy without being limp. As for the noodles, the restaurant requested the noodle factory to make the noodles solely using only eggs and flour. Not even a drop of water is allowed. This is how we differentiate a road side fried noodle from restaurant ones.

Remember to ask for their sambal belacan to go with the noodles as it enhances the noodle flavour.

The chilled Pandan Sago Kuih (西米冻糕,RM10)here is another dish I grew up with. Not available always though. Love the smooth texture with the santan and pandan flavour.


Finally, a dinner is not complete without dessert. Water Chestnut Cream with Silver Fungus (雪洱马蹄露,RM20). Another smooth textured mildly sweet dessert with crunchy waterchestnut bits. I can almost feel my face is getting smoother...LOL

The restaurant has been around for more than 30 years. It began as Ming Court but later changed to Jade Palace after moving their location.
