Why: For the new dinner menu featuring interpretations of Asian cuisine.
Although typically specialising in French gastronomy and European fusion foods, Jeremy Biasiol, chef de cuisine of Jade On 36, has dipped his toes into the wider world of Asian cuisine and created an exotic new dinner menu, taking inspiration from his travels around Asia. The sharing-style menu features classic dishes, with delightful Asian twists, suitable for the local and expat crowd.
Our favourite appetiser was the tuna and sea urchin, with a wasabi and soy sauce infused egg covered in bonito flakes. This dish creatively played with characteristically Asian ingredients and was set upon crispy rice, topped with salmon roe, which intensified this wonderfully rich seafood dish. In fact, seafood lovers will have a field day at the restaurant, and should follow up the delicious appetiser by tucking into the Maine lobster, served with herb and corn beignet and porcini mushroom espuma.
The dinner menu is priced at RMB 448 per diner for three dishes, RMB 508 for four dishes, RMB 558 for five dishes and RMB 608 for six dishes. There is also a seven-course degustation menu designed to be enjoyed by the whole table for RMB 638 per diner, with wine pairing at a supplement of RMB 358 per person.
