This lured me into Crystal Jade for dinner after our movie date! Specially flavoured Xiao Long Bao (XLB) to celebrate SG50!
As we took too long to decide where to have dinner, there was already a queue building up at Crystal Jade La Mian XLB @ Great World City and we had to wait for a table. Lucky, some diners had finished their meals and we were able to get a seat pretty quickly.
Something similar to what both of us are craving for after eating at Ma La Hui Cui Guan
Something for carbs with a healthy soup
PB’s Craving 😛
PB started his meal with a cold barley, $2.20
La Mian with Double-boiled Chicken Soup, $10.80
Love the texture of the handmade noodles
Plenty of chicken in the double boiled soup. Goodness in one pot!
Chilli Crab & Hainanese Chicken Rice Flavour XLB, $7.80
As we are ordering it on a weekend, it costs more than the promotion rate of $5 which is valid only on weekdays.
Close up of the specially made XLB to celebrate SG50, something uniquely Singapore. 😉
Hainanese Chicken Rice Flavour XLB – The skin was so thin that my meat dumpling dropped out and splatter the soup out of the spoon! You can smell the ginger fragrance of the chicken rice in this dumpling. Nice!
The Chilli Crab Flavour XLB – The colour of the soup may look red but it is not spicy.
Deep-fried Diced Chicken with Dried Chilli, $12.80
The chicken was meaty but lacked the crispiness and spiciness that both of us were looking forward to 😛
I added on this Deep-fried Radish Pastry ( 3 pieces for $4.50) as I could not forget how good it tasted.
A little surprised at how the size have shrunk.
It still taste great though and do be careful of the pipping hot radish fillings!
PB’s Craving came – Deep-fried Marble Goby with Soya Sauce (Seasonal Price, $8/100g)
700 grams of Marble Goby deep-fried to perfection! Crispy on the outside and still meaty and juicy on the inside!
Close up of the meaty fish. Yums!
Overall a pleasant meal which came up to $100.10 after a 10% discount with POSB Credit card with the bulk of the meal attributed to the fish ($56). The special flavours XLB are valid till 30 September 2015 so grab yours while stocks last!
