Crystal Jade Kitchen Westgate – Chinese restaurant in Jurong East

Crystal Jade Kitchen Westgate is probably the Chinese restaurant in the Jurong East area that we have frequented the most. Directly linked by walkways to the Jurong East MRT station and also the Ng Teng Fong Hospital, it is often the Chinese restaurant that comes to mind when we have things to attend to in the area. For a restaurant in the suburbs, it looks rather grand and we have seen birthdays and business lunches being hosted there. Here is a compilation of some of the things we ate at Crystal Jade Westgate during a couple of recent lunches.

The entrance to Crystal Jade Kitchen Westgate looks rather messy on the outside because of the number of standing displays. Once inside the restaurant looks much better. We like the full glass walls and spacious feel of the place.

Here is a picture of the Crystal Jade restaurants’ opening hours during Chinese New Year 2019. It seems that all their outlets (other than the Changi Airport T1 outlet) will be closed on the first day of CNY. Until we saw this list, we did not realise that CJ has more than 20 outlets in Singapore! This is a useful list for anyone looking for a Chinese restaurant in Jurong East or other part of Singapore during the 2019 CNY period.

Cheong fun with char siew

Like us, many people like to go to Crystal Jade Westgate for a dim sum lunch. They have the usual dim sum items, mostly priced around $5 to $6 for each basket. We like the cheong fun items – either with char siew or prawns. The rice rolls are smooth and fine. The steamed mushroom dumplings are tasty.

A tze char favourite, har cheong kai (deep-fried chicken with shrimp paste), is on the menu and is nicely done at Crystal Jade Kitchen. The XO carrot cake is also a dish we always order. The portion is generous and the combination of flavours seems to be done right consistently. The congee at Crystal Jade is smooth and available in different versions. We like the congee with sliced garoupa fillet.

In addition to dim sum, we sometimes try other items on the menu. If we are feeling rich, we will order the live prawns cooked in a claypot with vermicelli, ginger, scallion and white pepper. This is the best dish we have eaten at Crystal Jade Kitchen Westgate.
