JUMBO Group’s latest food concepts, Zui Yu Xuan Teochew Cuisine and Chao Ting, have opened at Far East Square. Both pay tribute to Teochew cuisine, serving up classic dishes that grandma would approve.
One of the most striking features of Zui Yu Xuan is the intricate embroidery art from Chaozhou that adorn both floors of the restaurant. Admire elaborate, golden four seasons art pieces and traditional opera costumes on the walls of the staircase as you make your way to the upper dining room. Menu highlights include Teochew Cold Crab ($12/100g) – sweet flesh flecked with rich crab roe and paired with a piquant garlic chilli – and the comforting Pomfret Pao Fan ($108).
Office executives looking for a quick lunch can head over to Chao Ting for a fuss-free serving of King Prawn Pao Fan ($11). The belly-warming broth is made of large prawns, chicken, pork and fish bones, and topped with egg floss, dried shrimp and puffed rice. Evocative of street side push carts, you can choose a steaming bowl from the counter (located just next to the courtyard entrance of Zui Yu Xuan) and pick a seat among the assortment of tables scattered outside.
