Crystal Jade Restaurants Launches Parents' Day Promotion With Exclusive Dishes, Specially-crafted Set Menus, And More!

In case anyone needs a reminder, Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May, and we do the same for Father's Day on the third Sunday of June here in Singapore. It is not uncommon to see most families having a meal together to mark their appreciation for the mother and father in their life.

It's time to start thinking about where to eat!

To help you with the planning, here's sharing that Crystal Jade is launching their 'Parents' Day' promotion from 3rd May to 30th June this year with an array of exclusive dishes and specially-crafted set menus.

Let's have a look at the menu highlights from the various restaurants under the Crystal Jade group.

Ho Fook Hei Soy Sauce Chicken @ Great World City ~ Well-Executed, Comforting Cantonese Dishes By Joyden

Ho Fook Hei can be quite a mouthful for those who don't speak the Cantonese dialect. It took me quite some time to get it right oops.

Meaning 好福气 or good forturne, the auspiciously-named casual dining eatery located on the first floor of Great World City (near the office towers) serves its signature rose wine soy sauce chicken, and a medley of authentic Cantonese specialties prepared with time-honoured recipes passed down from generations.

Seems that this latest concept by locally-owned Joyden group of restaurants is very well-received by diners as Ho Fook Hei was packed when we visited on a weekday evening for dinner.

Yun Nans 云海肴 @ Jewel Changi Airport ~ Largest Yunnan F&B Chain With Over 150 Outlets In China Is Now Opened In Singapore!

Having never been to China before, my limited connection to the culturally-rich nation is mostly through their cuisine. Okay, C-dramas like Yanxi Palace as well lol!!!

Now we can get an experience of "gao yuan liao li" or Highland cuisine right here in Singapore. Yun Nans (known in China as 云海肴 "Yun Hai Yao"), the world's largest Yunnan F&B chain with over 150 outlets, has opened its first store in 10 years and the first out of China at Jewel Changi Airport.

Our meal at Yun Nans did not miraculously teleport us to China, but gave us a valuable inkling of what food from the highlands is like.
