Chinese restaurants are all over the world —and North London is by means exempted from the aggressive Chinese takeover.
However, not every Chinese restaurant is worth being recommended; they may all present the same menu but they surely do taste a lot different—ranging from those that will get you to throw up to those that take pride in serving delicious meals like Jade Palace.
North London may not sit in the minds of people as one of London’s posh suburbs but it has certain key affluent areas like Crouch End where you would find the residence of certain local celebrities. Of course you wouldn’t catch Jonathan Ross there, but trust me; it’s a preferred celebrity safe zone.
It’s this posh North London suburb that Jade Palace, a small Chinese restaurant serving delicious authentic Chinese food at a cost of below whatever budget is situated—we’ve been there twice and their meals have shifted in taste.
Over the weekend, SassyChic suggested we visit Jade Palace once again for dinner after a trip to the cinema to watch ‘The Transporter Refuelled’ for review purpose. (You Can Click Here for My Review of ‘The Transporter Refuelled’).
Surely, there were several Chinese restaurants around but Jade Palace is not your average Chinese restaurant so we drove out there and it was worth the 30 minutes drive.
For 17 pounds per person, you get to have two large starters; the first being assortment of Chinese starters and the second being their yummy Crispy Aromatic Duck.
For the meal course, you get to have a variety of Chinese foods; the usual Egg Fried Rice, Stir Fried Mixed Vegetables, Sweet and Sour Pork Hong Kong Style and Szechuan Spicy Chicken…
It’s just not the food; the restaurant is properly kept—which means, you wouldn’t have rodents running around on your toes. Yeah, certain restaurants have such runs as their selling points…
Location; Jade Palace, 20 Broadway Parade, Crouch End N8 9DE.
