I guess westies will be familiar with the ever popular Joyden Seafood @ West Coast. Now, the group has set its sights to wow the west again with Joyden Canton Kitchen. Located in the Upper Bukit Timah Hillview Area, Joyden Canton Kitchen @HillV2 serves up authentic yet contemporary Canton cuisine. What to expect at Joyden Canton Kitchen? Cantonese food of course, but with some twists. Let's start the food rolling.Crispy Golden Lotus Root ChipsChips which are healthy and so tasty! A first for me,
Crispy Golden Lotus Root Chips Chips which are healthy and so tasty! A first for me, thinly sliced lotus root, fried till crisp. I wanted to bring home for snacks but they said that it should be eaten fresh. Well, a reason to go back. Found this dish to be really innovative.
Joyden Signature Soy Sauce Chicken The reason why the salt poached chicken didn't get a 5 hands. This soy sauce chicken was exceptional. Try it to believe it. Much has to be lauded for the secret blend of sauce and herbs. Also, rosewater is used to give the chicken that tender texture and robust flavour. I'm actually craving for it now as I type.
Fish Maw and Prawns with Glass Noodles in XO Sauce The entire dish is cooked in that black claypot which gives off that mouthwatering smoky 'wok hei' flavour to the glass noodles. Ingredients used were all of good quality and I must say another favorite of the night. I have been here one more time for this since being invited for the tasting. If you are thinking of the one dish to order here, this would be it.
Sliced Grouper Fillet Probably the only average dish we had all night. Decently done in the claypot.
Braised Homemade Beancurd with Baby Cabbage One hand less to perfect because I felt that the beancurd could be better done. Don't be focus on those balls and set your sight below. Those Poached Shanghai Baby Cabbage are what you should be eyeing for. The leaves are so tender, it melts completely into your mouth at first bite. Let's hope it stays that way for some time.
