We had come to like Jubilant a lot. That is, we as the whole family and not just Suanne and I only.
We first visited Jubilant almost two months ago and since then, we had been to Jubilant four times already. It helps especially when both Arkensen and Nanzaro likes the restaurant also. Its rare especially when our boys favourite restaurants are Kam Do and Banzai Sushi.
Jubilant is located in the small strip mall on No 3 Road and Browngate Road. This is the same strip mall where Golden Spring Szechuan and the No 1 Shanghai Restaurant is located. It is also across the street from Kim Ga Nae and HKYK Seafood Hotpot.
So you can quite imagine parking is an issue with so many big and popular restaurants concentrated here. There is a paid parking lot next to Kim Ga Nae which has a lot of space but it is outrageously expensive. If you can’t get a parking spot here, your next next best bet is to park in Aberdeen Mall and take that long walk over.
Jubilant is described as a Cantonese noodle house but we don’t associate them with a noodle house. We would say that they are more Cantonese cuisine than it is a noodle house.
The tables and chairs are comfortable but the arrangements are also very tight. They obviously try to squeeze in as many table as they can because they are a very popular restaurant.
We are lamenting again that we can’t read Chinese. All their specials are in Chinese and pasted along all the walls and windows … nary a single alphabet in sight.
Their lunch special is not bad. It is $8 for each of the 20 items and that includes rice and soup.

We were drawn to their Chef’s Specials. The Drunken Chicken, which we ordered, is my favourite. I liked it so much that we had it three times out of the four visits here. Their other specialty is the Empress Chicken.
The combos are for those who likes variety. We did not try this at all but it looks like something we would go for breakfast. These combos are quite expensive ($11 for two choices or $14 for three) … but not if they serve full sizes for each choice.
See what I mean when I say that they are not quite a noodles restaurant? They also serve more expensive dishes too.
Their menu is so full of my favourite kind of food. That is not including all the specials on the wall. There are also $6 lunch specials together with drinks too.
Overall the prices are quite cheap for the quality and that is what we love about Jubilant. We came here looking to try the CRA award winning noodles but ended up discovering more than just noodles.
Chinese Restaurant Award 2010 ♦ SILVER in the CANTONESE NOODLES Category ♦ Vermicelli in Fish Broth with Fish Balls & Squid Balls 潮式雙丸魚湯米粉
The Jubilant Restaurant won silver in the Cantonese Noodles category with the dish above.
While the CRA folks called it Vermicelli in Fish Broth with Fish Balls & Squid Balls, Jubilant called this slightly differently on their menu — Fish and Squid Balls in Noodle Soup combination. This is just $6 which is cheap considering that this also came with … Continue reading
