 I have been trying to find good and inexpensive Chinese cuisine in Singapore but sometimes you're just running out of choice if you're not going to Imperial Treasure group of restaurants in Orchard.

Jia Wei is a new discovery and if we call it a hidden gem it could be fully justified.  We tried some traditional dish like clay pot salted fish with tofu the taste is great and the size and texture of tofu is just right where you could taste the sauce and the silkiness of tofu.  Just that salted fish could hardly be found in the clay pot.


梅菜芥蘭 is fantastic as you could see the chewy part of kale have been removed and only the young and tender parts are served.  Sometimes it could not be found even in fine dining Chinese restaurants.  It's just that the 梅菜 is not good enough.  It shouldn't be related to the way how it is cooked but the ingredient is just not good enough as you could taste a little bit more sweetness from it but anyway it's just not very good it's still quite good.

Soup of the day is great and it's of truly Cantonese style.  Personally I don't like very herbal taste but instead the time spent on cooking the soup is more important.  We had the lotus root with pork soup and it's a good surprise.

Service is great and the waitresses really know what you want as I really hate telling them in every detail - as nowadays even robots are with AI and they could learn from experience.  If robots could do it why we need human beings as waitresses?!

In general we're very satisfied with the dishes and we will come again.
