Jumbo now having 25% off for members. A much bigger crowd than when they offered 20% off. Be prepared to wait. And please check your order before leaving, thou if they got it wrong, you might have to wait longer. I ordered deshelled prawns. This was not it. Only found out when I got home. Shell stuck to the flesh. Overall tasted quite bland.

I ordered 2 pcs. This was surprisingly quite a lot for just 2 pcs. Tasted a bit bland.

The wait was almost an hr, thou I was told it would be 20-30mins. Supposed to be able to call in to order then go collect but the line was always engaged. Despite the horribly long wait, this Mee goreng was delicious.

Their take away sets cost $12.80. One main dish of rice/noodles or congee, one small serving of vege, and one dessert. I chose this crispy bun for dessert. Pastry was really thick, until I got to the middle. Red bean paste was in abundance there. Not too sweet I like. Outer layer was still crispy after 2 hrs.

This came in a set with my soy sauce chicken (which I forgot to take pic of). Bao skin was a bit too thick in some areas. But the skin texture was the starchy kind, which I like. The salted egg yolk custard was really good. Good lava texture and savory.

Incidentally, for the soy sauce chicken, any request for any part (except breast meat) would require a $2 top up.

One person portion. Doused in sweet and sour sauce. I liked the zing of the vinegar in the sauce. Very crispy very tasty. No bones!

Grand Shanghai is now opened for Saturday lunch. This was the first time I came by after their renovation. Beautiful interiors with impeccable service and riverside views.

They usually served small side dish to each table which was $3.50. I declined it. Pls also note that tea with wet towels cost $3.80. Warm water is regarded as tea here. $3.80 for water! I declined it also.

This was basically just noodles, scallion slices and mushrooms. But it was flavorful and simple. I liked it more than the fried rice.

Good to order carbs when feeding a whole table of hungry people. This fried rice was not oily and ingredients quite plentiful.

Still crispy even when drenched in sauce. Not too sweet with a nice zing.

Realized too late that I’d prob ordered all one-person potions for my dinner with hubby. No wonder I’m not full. This was quite nice. The salted egg sauce was not the runny type. More like mixed into the flour and fried together. Strange that the prawns here were not as springy and bouncy as other outlets. Not sure if it was freshness issue, cos the prawn in the Mee Goreng was also like this.

At first was disappointed that it was smaller than other Jumbo outlets. Then I realized that I had prob ordered a one-person portion. Price was also cheaper compared to other outlets. Need to take note of that next time. Sauce was good not very spicy here. Cod fish pcs were not as crispy as I had expected.

Smaller portion than other jumbo outlets but the price was also $4 cheaper. Spicy level was good. I think this was a one-person portion. Only 1 prawn inside which wasn’t as bouncy as I expected. But the rest of the taste was good standard as always.
