Cubes @ Jaya One

cubes jaya one

Cubes is billed as a Chinese cuisine / wine bar. Mr. Ang had us over for dinner courtesy of Eiling and it was good to have some Chinese food and single malt for a change. 

cubes pork

I’m not going to go into the dish names or prices since most of the stuff we had was off the menu so here’s a description of the dinner: 

cubes duck

This is probably the best duck I’ve ever eaten. It’s served Peking Duck style. 

cubes soft shell crab

Soft shelled crab! 

cubes soft shell crab bun

Best wrapped in a warm man tou (Chinese soft bun) and served with a bed of lettuce and sweet pineapple. I like the sesame seed hints on the crab. 

cubes pork knuckle

The next dish is roasted pork knuckle. You just can’t argue with the porcine goodness. It’s tender and melt-in-your-mouth. 

cubes pork belly

Just when you thought you’ve fulfilled your pig quota for the month, here’s the three layered pork belly with special sauce. This is the best dish of the night – tender, juicy and flavorful. The texture is exquisite with crunchy nuts on top contrasted with soft pork belly. 

cubes prawn

It just can’t get any better than this right? Wrong! Here come the huge prawns! 

cubes chicken

The chicken is almost an anti-climax after all that good food. 

cubes bbq pork

…but wait, pork awaits! There’s no such thing as too much pork! BBQ pork, done really well so it’s all juicy. Mmm… 

cubes veggies

It was a veritable pig out but there was an obligatory vegetable dish just to fulfill the FDA requirements. I like Cubes, but most of the stuff served that night isn’t available on the menu. You can always ask the owner though, I’m sure he can whip something up. :)
