Jade Restaurant's Weekend Dim Sum ala carte buffet has been on going for few years. There are two sittings for this buffet. First timing is 11.30am - 1.30pm ( $28++ ) and the 2nd timing is at 1.30pm - 3.30pm ( $33++) We went for the first slot ( both slots have the same menu..so yeah..i would of coz choose the first slot.. why pay more ? )
It was said that one would have to wait rather long ( like need to book 1 -2 months in advance ) to get reservations , but I guess it has been much easier of late as we were able to get a table in 2 wks :)
There were some hits and misses for this buffet. Not everything on the menu is worth ordering. Well, here are some of the items available :)
Let's start with the hits!
Each person is entitled to
one serving of the soups
( there are 4-5 choices )
Some are double boiled, while some are broths.
Sarah had the spinach with crabmeat (left)
while I chose the shark's fin
We gave them both thumbs up :)
We simply love the
prawns with wasabi mayo!
James gave the prawn an
exquisite look :P
These bite size egg tarts

Deep Fried Taro Paste Wrapped with Truffle and Mushroom
