Jade Restaurant's menu offers a divine selection of Chinese set meals, making it a great value dining experience - not often heard of in fine dining! Peking Duck Extravaganza is pretty impressive as a seven-course event. Starting, of course, with duck pancakes - who would start any Chinese meal without these, I don't know! Roasted Peking duck marinated in orange peel, zesty hoisin sauce and cucumber are all delicately wrapped in the perfect pancake.
These are followed by a dish of steamed silken chawanmushi with diced duck meat and wild mushrooms, and accompanied with sliced black truffles. Next comes superior duck bone consommé with duck meat dumplings, porcini mushrooms, lemongrass, coriander and chilli. To refresh your palette, the next course comprises a black sesame lemon sorbet, and sautéed carved Peking duck with pan-seared foie gras, which is roasted with garlic and green asparagus.
Your last duck dish is pineapple fragrant fried rice with diced duck meat, crabmeat, and nonya chilli - served in a crispy moneybag. Dessert is an amazing shaved coconut ice cream with fresh strawberry and mango cream. Wine is served in large glasses - which always creates an air of indulgence, if you ask me!
