Dinner at Jade Palace

Located in the basement of Forum Galleria, Jade Palace is a Cantonese restaurant which is well-known for its dim sum, seafood and lap mei fan (claypot rice). Apart from food, the restaurant is apparently also famous for its collection of fine wines, although I suspect that a number of the bottles in its cellar are (i) either […]
