    I had always been a fan of their la main. I personally do find theirs better than others. However recently, they went through a revamp, or more like “Honey I shrank Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao”! I wonder this only happen to the Ngee Ann City outlet or to the rest of the outlets as well.

    The long queue to wait for a table and the number tag is still the same

    Nothing much changes in the menu.

    The changes: Xiao Long Bao – There used to be four xiao long baos per order but now they shrinked the xiao long bao into a smaller size and increase the number to five per order. Hmm…. It still taste pretty much the same but the size difference is really too much. Not very happy with it. Smaller xiao long bao means there is lesser fillings and lesser soup in each bao and this makes a lot of difference.

    Shanghai Pan Fried Bao - There used to be three per order but now there are four. Same case as xiao long bao, the size shrinked a bit too much.

    Their la mian is still pretty much the same in the variety but what changes is the type of la mian they are offering. From dragon whiskers to dao siao main to even ban mian, there are 7 types of la mian to choose from. Hmm… From what we have ordered, we still conlude that the old type of la mian still works wonder. Hee…. Nothing much changes from the rest. The portion of the food also shrank a bit.

    The changes do not really impressed me and I think they are better going back to the old ones.

    The service is still as good and attentive as ever, that is one thing I like when dining there. The place is still as packed as ever. Overheard one customer complaining how come there are only 3 pcs of beef in the la mian when there is supposed to be 4 slices. Hmm…. The supervisior also cannot answer that question but then she just brushed off the comment like that. Sigh……

    I need the old Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao back!
