Crystal jade egg tarts are pretty good. The pastry is slightly crumbly and flaky and the custard is eggy light and smooth. The custard is very tasty and does not leave you feeling overwhelmed by an eggy taste or leave you with a cloying feeling. The pastry while having a good texture and mouthfeel is not very tasty being pretty plain in terms of taste and rather tasteless. Overall an acceptable egg tart but not outstanding.

My first time trying the chinese style of chicken pies. The pastry is sweet and buttery unlike a normal chicken pie. The pastry used is the sweet shortcrust type unlike the regular puff pastry of a western chicken pie. The pie though small is deceivingly filling. The char siew chicken filling inside the pastry is savoury and contrasts with the sweet pastry to make for a good match. Only qualm is that it is slightly expensive for the small size.

I bought an egg tart from Crystal Jade for my supper as I was feeling a little hungry after work. After 8:30pm, there will be a 20% off storewide for the items in Crystal Jade, so it is quite worth the money. The egg tart is of a crusty type with flaky pastry which will just crumble when you bite into it. The egg tart filling is quite substantial and it is sweet as well, complementing the flaky pastry very well. I ate it cold,but it would taste even better if it is hot.

The FoodCrystal Jade bakery is one of the many bakery shops that I always visit as it is very convenient for me. The bread choices are quite limited compared to other bakery shop like Breadtalk but I usually go for its egg tarts instead. That is because I love the crust of its egg tart. It can be really addictive I must say. The inner filling is soft while the outside crust is crispy.The PricePrice wise I find it reasonable as it is a good egg tart. Worth the price!

Had a nice late afternoon meal with my family here. the place was pretty empty when we walked in. hence it was very quiet till talking had to be in hushed tones. food wise was delicious - i love the mushroom tofu, gu lu rou and diced chicken with dried chilli slices. The service was very polite and attentive and i especially love the cooling barley drink, perfect for the body after heavy eating during the CNY.

Bought a packet of Carrot Toast from Crystal Jade My Bread at Basement 1 of Junction 8 as I wanted to try something different and new. Carrot Toast sounded interesting and healthy to me, and indeed it was a right decision made! Loaded with fresh carrot bits and juice, the toast makes a good alternative to the plain old white bread for your morning breakfast. This Carrot Toast is also packed with Vitamin C and has no added preservatives.Taste: The slices of bread is chewy yet soft and fluffy. Wit

Carrot Toast sounded interesting and healthy to me, and indeed it was a right decision made! Loaded with fresh carrot bits and juice, the toast makes a good alternative to the plain old white bread for your morning breakfast. This Carrot Toast is also packed with Vitamin C and has no added preservatives.

Taste: The slices of bread is chewy yet soft and fluffy. With every bite you take, you can taste the hint of carrot and the occasional tiny carrot bits which are not too chunky and are of the perfect amount and size.

Overall: Recommended! At only $1-$2, one packet of Carrot Toast contains 4 slices of nutritional bread that you won't take long to finish!

Drink + dessertThere is a promotion of ordering the selected drink and selected dessert with lower prices so i decided to have it. The soya bean drink is not very nice, too sweet and not smooth enough. The barley drink is okay, but again, it's too sweet. The Gui Ling Gao is quite bitter, but with the honey syrup it is much better, and i love this cold jellish dessert, slurppps! The mango pudding is less delicious, not jellish, and the mango taste is quite plain.salted egg prawnThe prawn is firs

salted egg prawn
The prawn is first deshelled, battered, deep fried to golden perfection and then sauteed with mashed salted egg yolk mixture to become this fragrant, salty but tasty dish. The prawn is quite large one, easy to eat because it has no more shell, and crunchy which shows that it is fresh. Though the portion is quite small, it is quite enough for three persons.

Braised herbal duck
the duck is served sizzling hot although we waited for quite some time. The meat is not hard, quite tender and full with flavours. The gravy is great to eat with rice, I am so appetizing to have this as one of the dish.

Here I am gonna mention about the service of the restaurant, the serving of food is very slow, we even gonna wait for some time after we finish the first dish to get the second dish served. Though it is dinner time, I hope that this can be improved.

Crystal Jade Kitchen at Junction 8 Bishan #B1-07 serves very nice Chinese food. Mrupupup had their duck noodles (dry version) - all time favorite because of the succulent duck meat (attached photo) and wonderful noodles. Mrupupup also had dumpling soup noodles (very nice dumplings), red bean dessert and this special Osmanthus jelly (which has a refreshing taste). Mrupupup loves the Crystal Jade. Yummmyss!

After enjoying the main course, Merlion Wayfarer decided to order her dessert.

Osmanthus jelly (桂花糕) - Delicate jelly cubes chilled with fragrant osmanthus flowers and wolfberries.
Although they looked like some herbal concoction, the taste is delicate and mildly fragrant. A close-up of the jelly. See how it reflected the light? It was more agar agar than jelly, and it was kinda addictive to keep slurping the cubes...

Looking at the diners still stuffing themselves with the buffet food and the "mass-produced" desserts, Merlion Wayfarer left the restaurant beholding the sweet aftertaste of the osmanthus in her palate. Hiak hiak hiak!

This is cheese polo Danish pastry from Crystal jade My Bread.I like to buy their bread after 8.30pm because they have promotion daily from 8.30pm for 20% discount on all bread and bun. If you like to eat it fresh then you can buy in the morning with no discount.Their outer layer is polo bread with Danish pastry. Inner layer is cheese filling. Very special combination. Best to put in the oven before eat.
