Remember all those times you visited Crystal Jade with your family, loved ones and friends? The soft lighting of the 140-seater restaurant creates the ideal warm-and-fuzzy atmosphere for great conversations to be born. Crystal Jade Steamboat Kitchen enhances the experience with their knowledgeable and friendly employees. I asked several questions about the origins of the food and they KNOW them all!

2. Choose from six different soup bases

These include Pork Bone soup, Tomato soup, Curry soup, Miso soup and Superior soup. Those who have fiery tastebuds and would prefer something more intense, challenge yourself with the Spicy Mala soup. Each steamboat pot comes with two compartments so you can choose to enjoy different soup bases.

3. All-you-can-eat steamboat with free flow of drinks and soft ice cream for lunch and dinner

Crystal Jade Steamboat Kitchen offers a wholesome spread of more than 35 ingredients including fresh chicken, pork and beef slices, mussels, mushrooms and vegetables. This is probably more than the average number of ingredients I usually have at reunion dinners at home!

4. The Minced Pork Paste and Chicken Paste are home-made

What's so special about home-made food? Well, the recipes ignite nostalgic memories in your subconscious. I really loved how Crystal Jade enables us to be creative in shaping our meat with these slabs of paste. You can simply dunk the entire slab into the soup in one flat squarish chunk, or attempt to make your own meatballs, and trust me, that takes a lot of skill. More importantly, the intense flavours and smooth texture of the meat pastes were well-received by my tongue.

5. Daily Special: Deep-fried items to snack on while you wait for the soup to boil

Most of us simply want to tuck into our food without waiting. I was delighted to know that cooked items are offered daily at the buffet counter. I tried the Deep Fried Fish Skin, Deep Fried Chicken Skin and Deep Fried Mushroom Stems. They were flavoursome on their own, but you may choose to dip them into the soup for that extra richness. My personal favourite would be the Fish skin because it was really crunchy and chock full of briny deep-sea goodness!

6. Fine slices of fresh pork, chicken and beef

You don't like beef? Not to worry — there's pork. You don't like pork? Well, there's chicken. These meats are kept refrigerated and only served upon ordering. This ensures their freshness!

7. Missing the traditional Cantonese favourites? They didn't forget your roasted combination platter!

The Roasted Combination Platter (S$25.80/per serving) is definitely great for carnivorous beings like myself. The Roast Duck is served with a golden proportion of meat and fat. These ducks are specially selected from Ipoh duck
farms, where newborn ducks are raised to 7 weeks of age. The ducks are seasoned with various Chinese herbs stuffed in their stomachs before being
roasted. The Quality pork belly is seasoned with salt and five-spice powder, before being roasted for 1.5 to 2 hours. The crispy skin and flavourful juicy meat is not to be missed! Last but not least, the Honey Barbecued pork is glazed with a mixture of honey and sauces and skewered with long forks
before being placed to roast.

8. The crispiest Deep-fried Yam Puff with Minced Meat

Another quintessential favourite at Cantonese dim sum restaurants, each piece is packed
with soft, fragrant yam with juicy minced meat and deep fried with delicate golden flakes. You can get this a-la-carte for only S$4 per serving (3 pcs).

9. They have one of the freshest Ha-Kau you can find!

The fresh shrimps are wrapped
with a thin layer of dough skin and steamed in a traditional bamboo basket until the skin is
translucent. They're really juicy and fresh! Didn't understand why they were so slippery to pick up though. The Steamed Shrimp Dumplings are priced at S$4.60 per serving of 3 pieces.

10. Chewy and the colour of sunshine, this never fails to satisfy.

You'd be surprised at how juicy the Steamed Pork & Shrimp with Crab Roe Dumplings (S$4.20 per serving of 3 pieces) are! They are really moist and matched the lofty standards of all the steamed dim sum. Addictive to the max!

Thanks to Crystal Jade Steamboat Kitchen for the media tasting session. Now I know where to go for my next gathering!

Weekday dinner buffet: S$20.90++ for adults and S$17.90++ for children (12 years and below)

There are many different types of condiments for buffet diners to create their own dipping sauces. Looking at the colourful bowls here make everything so appetizing. For me, I took a bit of each condiment and mixed them together. I like the sesame sauce and their housemade special sauce, so I put more of these 2 sauces into my dipping bowl. Other condiments include Sambal Belacan, Thai dipping sauce, fresh cilantro, spring onions, garlic etc.

For this tasting session, we were served with two different types of soup bases, namely pork's bones soup (left) and curry soup (right). Crystal Jade Steamboat Kitchen offers diners six different soup bases. The other soup bases include Tomato Soup, Miso Soup, Superior Soup and Spicy Mala soup.

The temperature control was found underneath at one side of the table. It is really easy to operate, just need to press either the "up" or "down" button to control the temperature.

While waiting for our soup bases to boil, we enjoyed their cooked items such as Deep Fried Fish Skin, Deep Fried Chicken Skin and Deep Fried Mushroom Stems that were offered at the buffet line. They served as pretty good snacks, crunchy and not oily.

We were served with some of their popular ala-carte roasted combination platter and dim sums before we dipped into the steamboat.

Roasted Combination Platter ($25.80/ per serving)

This is one of your "must-order" dishes if you are here at Crystal Jade. As I was typing this post, just by looking at this photo of the roasted combination platter, made me drool and want to go back so much to the restaurant. The roasted duck meat was tender and I loved the caramelised crispy duck skin. The duck meat had a rich flavour as it was seasoned with various Chinese herbs stuffed in the stomach before being roasted. The roasted pork belly was juicy with a crisp pork-crackling. The quality pork belly was seasoned with salt and five spice powder and roasted for 1.5 to 2 hours. Last but not least, the honey barbecued pork, with fats that melt in your mouth, was flavourful and tender too.

This dish was something new to us. We were introduced to this old-school dim sum in Hong Kong that is now difficult to find and of course, I have not seen this in Singapore so far. This dim sum is made by stuffing minced fresh fish cake and radish between two layers of wonton skin.

I tried the pork bones' soup first as I was afraid the curry would numb my taste-bud. In fact, I love the pork bones' soup so much that I had several bowls of it until I was too full to really try the curry soup. The soup was light and sweet.

Walking around Plaza Singapura, my dining companion and I eventually ended up in Crystal Jade. I think they recently had a change in concept for this store as there is now steamboat available. In fact, there are quite a number of patrons there for the steamboat buffet as we saw lots of people with the pot. Nonetheless, we wanted something simple, so we just ordered dim sums for our dinner. There is a small range of dim sums available, and we stuck with the usual items like siew mai and har gow and chee cheong fun etc. The har gow is my favourite as the prawns are bouncy and crunchy and the skin is not too thick. I would think it is preferable for three to enjoy since the dim sums come in a basket of 3 each. We also ordered one non dim sum item, the vegetables for some greens. Overall, 5 dim sum dishes and one vegetable works out to around $40 for two which is quite alight. Also, do note that water is chargeable at 30cents each.

Needless to say, the roasted items were prepared with quality ingredients and high standard execution. The roast duck meat was plump, tender and moist with a slightly crispy skin, the roast pork belly has nice crackling skin and the char siew was sweet and juicy. Recommended.

Shrimp Dumpling $4.60++, has chunky fresh prawns wrapped in translucent skin. Prawns were crunchy and succulent, delish.

At the end of dinner, I was feeling rather full but still gotten myself one serving of the soft-serve ice cream to complete the meal. Soft-serve is a type of ice cream that is softer than regular ice cream, as a result of air being introduced during the freezing process. It was light, velvety smooth and not too sweet...yummy.

We had a great time sampling the new menu items from Crystal Jade. The Steamboat Buffet is good value for money, with unlimited serving of shabu meat, beverages and dessert. We would've prefer them to include fresh prawns to the spread though, but for the price they are charging, one wouldn't feel short changed. I would recommend it to my family and friends.

Crystal Jade Steamboat Kitchen's 90-minute buffet spread has more than 35 ingredients including fresh chicken, pork, beef slices, mussels, mushrooms and vegetables. One of the outstanding features is their commitment to keeping everything fresh for consumption. If you would like to have chicken/pork/beef slices, the chefs will retrieve them from the freezer where they are kept upon request.

How many condiments and sauces can you spot in this picture? With their more-than-enough options for you to create your own dipping sauces, be sure to be spoilt for choice. One of the sauces that I recommend is the Sambal Belacan and Peanut Sauce because I find that they are the most outstanding in terms of thickness and shiokness! Others include: Thai Dipping Sauce, Sesame Sauce, Fresh Cilantro, Spring Onions, Garlic, Chilli Padi and more.

Instead of just normal white rice, you get fragrant QQ rice here. QQ rice is a lovely blend of Thai Jasmine Rice and glutinous rice, giving it a chewier texture as compared to normal white rice. I like how premium the choices are at Crystal Jade Steamboat Kitchen that makes it a more value-for-money experience. For more flavour pop in your rice, mix in a small spoonful of freshly made scallion oil.

If the ingredients at the buffet section aren't enough to satisfy your appetite, you can also order cooked items such as deep fried fish skin/ chicken skin/ mushroom stems. Pro tip: dip them in the soup base for a few seconds to absorb the flavours.

The steamboat table is made of induction cooker. I'm bad with the technicalities, but trust me that it's extremely easy to operate. The white pot is also not too hot on the outside and you can actually touch it even though it's boiling in there. It makes the steamboat experience much more family-friendly when they've got all the safety issues all sorted out.

If you're wondering how many different soup bases you can choose from... the number is six: pork bone soup, tomato soup, curry soup, miso soup, superior soup and spicy mala soup! You can't have the best of six worlds, but at least you can have two with the duo-compartments in each steamboat pot.

For me, the highlight and ultimate must-try is their signature in-house pastes - Minced Pork Paste and Minced Chicken Paste! They are also kept in the freezers to ensure utmost freshness. I just loved these because they are super chewy, delicious and soak up the soup base adequately well. Simply scoop out spoonfuls of minced meat and drop them in the soup. Please try this when you are here!

The steamboat kitchen buffet includes free-flow drinks and desserts. The best part is that the soft ice-cream tastes awesome and not the low-quality types! Ice-cream is available in vanilla, chocolate or vanilla-chocolate. You can also add as much rainbow or chocolate sprinkles as you like. I think children will love these!

Prices

Weekday dinner buffet: $20.90++ (adults), $17.90++ (children below 12)

Weekend/ PH, dinner buffet: $26.90++ (adults), $23.90++ (children below 12)

Crystal Jade Steamboat Kitchen also retained their most popular perennial Cantonese dishes for your enjoyment. Check out some of my recommendations.

This is a rare dish that you can hardly find in Singapore dimsum restaurants nowadays. The pan-fried fish cake with radish ($4 for 3pcs) has a multi-dimensional bite to it with layers of wonton skin and chopped radish stuffed in the golden envelope. Pro tip: pair it with Crystal Jade's blend of chilli oil for the best effect.

Order the Roasted Combination Platter ($38.70 for 6 persons serving as pictured, $25.80 for 4 persons serving also available) for a complete Cantonese meal experience! There are three portions to it: Roast Duck, Roast Pork Belly and Honey Barbequed Pork (or char siew). The roast duck from Crystal Jade is specially sourced from Ipoh farms, and well-marinated with Chinese herbs stuffed in its stomach before being roasted! The chefs personally monitor the process to ensure its roasted to perfection by turning it periodically. The sweet glaze also helps to caramelise the crispy skin. Roasted for 2 hours, the roast pork belly is seasoned with salt and five spice powder for a flavourful, delicious finish. The char siew is also wonderfully glazed with a mixture of honey and sauces.

I ordered the Har Gow, Chee Cheong Fun and Custard Bun ($5.20)I love the filling in the har gow! The prawn inside was crunchy, the way that i like. Some parts of the skin was a little dry though. I think they also added something inside that made it especially sweet! Tasted a bit flour-y. I actually thought this was the steamroll with prawns/char siew insi

I love the filling in the har gow! The prawn inside was crunchy, the way that i like. Some parts of the skin was a little dry though. I think they also added something inside that made it especially sweet! Tasted a bit flour-y.

I actually thought this was the steamroll with prawns/char siew inside as the menu stated that it was steam rice tool/sesame seed ($3.80). Was quite surprised as I've always loved sesame and another with sesame would make me have an instant liking to it. I think the yellow looking liquid is mustard? So there were ketchup and mustard with the chee cheong fun. Pretty good!

The custard bao was okay, I like that the skin was soft and it looks like little man-tou. ($4.00)

Not a bad dim-sum place to dine if you're looking for an alternative to TimHoWan!

I was looking to have some chinese food the other day and decided to have porridge at crystal jade - its porridge is one of the best compared to other restaurant chains. I ordered the sliced fish and century egg porridge which costs $6.90. It was well cooked and the porridge not too soggy; I love the crispy crackers that came along with it; however, I didn't quite like the fish that day as there were lots of tiny bones. I also ordered the tofu with mushrooms ($10.90); well priced and tasty as we

I will always head to crystal jade when I am craving for a bowl of congee. Crystal jade is one of those places that you can have delicious congee somewhat like Hong Kong style congees when you are craving for it. The congee is very smooth and tasty. You can choose to have different ingredients that you want to for the congee. I ordered the chicken duck congee and it was topped with generous amount of spring onions when it came. I finished every bit of it. Other recommendations that I have tried

Wasn't feeling that hungry when my friends and I went to grab our dinner before movie starts. Ordered a bowl of hot duck and chicken porridge for the evening. Love the presentation of dish, garnished by green onions and accompanied by some crispy crackers. The porridge is silky smooth, evidence of it being boiled for long hours and doesnt require any chewing. amount of duck and chicken slices given is quite a lot too. the porridge doesn't require any condiments to make it tasty, just a little pe

Overall a enjoyable dinner!

Had liu sha bao from here as a takeaway. The liu sha bao when freshly steamed has molten golden liquid custard flowing out when you pierce into it. However the custard is not very flavorful it is rather bland without a distinct salted egg flavour. The bun is very fluffy and soft, but it is a little thick as compared to the amount of custard inside.

THis is one of my favourite steamboat buffet as I love wide range of sauces provided here, especially their almond sauce, which is really thick and fragrant. Moreover, the different types of seafoods, meats, vegetables are all very fresh. There are also soya bean milk drink, barley drink available in their buffet as well, which I think is very good as they are not too sweet and great to have it with the steamboat.

Had the ala carte steamboat on a Saturday evening. Costing $25 per pax, what we get is 2 soup base (chicken stock and sweet sour base), free flow soy milk and 2 slices of minced peking duck wrapped in egg skin complimentary . Food-wise take note you do not get your usual prawns and mini crabs but you do get your squid and cuttlefish. Food is limited and by our 4th order, we were told a few items are no longer available. Overall did not feel the food served is fresh but for the convenience of eat

Overall did not feel the food served is fresh but for the convenience of eating there since catching a movie upstairs later, we can't complain much. On a side note, the table beside us ordered the full peking duck, it sure looks tempting, maybe can try that instead of the steamboat next time

I like the xiao long bao the most from the crystal jade kitchen. The xiao long bao will always be serve hot. On the first bite, The juice inside the xiao long bao will oozed out. It is more like a soup. And, the taste of the soup in it is very tasty. It is not too salty. The meat in it is also very tender. It is best if you manage to put the whole xiao long bao inside your mouth. But, it will be quite hot...

I went to Crystal Jade, when a friend & me were shopping in Orchard & douby Ghaut. We ordered for a Glutinous meat fried rice & dumplings in hot sauce. The portions were good. It was tasty, but nothing great. The rice was just ok, the dumplings were nice as the sauce was spicy & tasty. I would rate the ambience higher then the food, as I found the food just normal & nothing extra ordinary. The staff were friendly & the prices on the menu were pretty reasonable.
