Joyden Treasures opens in the East!

If you haven’t been to any of the restaurants under Joyden Concept because of its far location in the west, the newly open Joyden Treasures at Leisure Park Kallang would be a treasure worth exploring this weekend. Other than family recipe dishes, dim sum is served as well from 1130am to 3pm daily!

We have the bowl of double boiled seafood soup in whole old cucumber (mushroom, scallop and fish maw) This tasted especially comforting after a long day at work and I savored till the last sip. We polished off the walls of the old cucumber and were pleasantly surprised to find a wanton deep in the melon.

My favourite dish for the night was this Crispy Fragrant Duck with Petite Lotus Bun ($58). It’s akin to eating duck confit but the Chinese way with steamed buns. I liked how the side condiments; sambal and pickled papaya go particularly well with the flavourful shredded meat and crispy skin!

I am not a fish lover but I really enjoyed the steamed Red grouper in homemade soy bean broth. The broth is similar to that of the salty soy milk 鹹豆漿 we have at breakfast joints in Taipei. The milky yet savoury broth enhances the sweetness of the fish and the golden fried enoki mushrooms atop the fish gave it an extra crunch that I couldn’t stop biting on. This golden fried enoki mushrooms are so good that we unanimously echoed that this should be included as a side dish on it own in the menu.

Jumbo Prawns ($26/36/52) tossed in sesame oil based dark sauce. The sauce was a little overly sweet for me but goes well with a bowl of rice or two.

We heard about black pepper, salted egg and chill crab but salted baked crab? Imagine Sri Lankan crab baked with different blends of salts, it results in a salty shell but a sweet and moist crab flesh. The crab roe tasted like salted egg, now we have one more reason to order the salted bake as we get two flavours in a dish!joydentreasures_4

Phoenix Beancurd Skin Prawn roll ($16/$22/$30) – the flat version of our usual prawn roll (hei zhor) with the addition of salted and century egg.

We also had some sweet desserts after the meal.

Brown Sugar Ma Lai Gao ($4.20) – steamed cake that is good enough on its own, it’s so fluffy I am gonna die!

Yam Paste with Pumpkin and Gingko ($16/$26/$36) – this was not overly gerlat and I loved how the chopped water chestnuts gave a contrasting texture to the smooth and silky paste. Single portion are sold at $6 but I am pretty certain that I could finish a $16 portion on my own.

Apart from being the largest Joyden concepts outlet, Joyden Treasures boasts six VIP rooms for private dining. Suffering from my post Hong Kong holiday blues, I know where to head for some dim sum brunch this weekend!
