    Not As Power as its Sister-Outlet, Crystal Jade Kitchen

    Instead of the usual wanton noodles at Crystal Jade Kitchen, we decided to have some la mian at its sister outlet, Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao.

    1) Spicy Soup Noodle with Sliced Beef ($7.50). The soup was very reminiscent of Maggi instant noodles soup stock. Beef was good though.

    2) Pork and Vegetable Wanton Soup ($6.40): The soup was comforting and delicate.

      This is my 1st visit at this outlet in Suntec.

      We have the xiao long bao, Tianjin Meat Bun, Pan Fried Pork Dumpling and ShrimpWanton Noodle Soup.

      The xiao long bao was quite good, we placed another order after finished the 1st round. The noodle soup look abit too bland thou but I am not the one eating it, so I can't comment. The Pan Fried Pork Dumpling, the skin abit too thick and it's really filling thou it's only 3.

      As for the Tianjin Mean Bun also known as 'Guo Bu Li Bao Si' was not my favourite at all. The disappointing part is the onion taste and smell. The meat mixed with the onions, it's taste is really not fantastic and the smell is not too fragrant to me. No wonder it's name as 'even the dogs dont bother bun' hahahaha... Will not try this dish again.

      The place was well decorated and probably Im still early before dinner time, it's not so crowded. The service was fast too.

        Having heard quite a few good things about this place from friends and fellow bloggers, i was looking forward to my visit for this 'almost guaranteed' winner of a restaurant that has been touted as being reasonably priced and packing in the taste department. And as i was in the vicinity with Lord Thingy, i coerced him into giving me a treat at the place. =) Thanks again for the treat Thingy!!

        Chef's Recommendation Hot Plate Xiao Long Bao ($4.80) - Our first item came out looking like a disappointment and it tasted like one too. Unlike the menu which touted it as a chef's recommendation, the picture showed the egg having other tasty ingredients like chili, vegetables and assorted minced meat but ours came looking nothing like the menu. The egg was tasteless apart from the hint of garlic used to fry it. The xiao long bao also did not fare too well as it came across as soggier then usual and broke too easily. The meat also didn't taste too fresh while the gravy within was too salty. Thingy didn't like it much too.

        Beef Brisket La Mian ($7) - Another recommendation, this time by the waitress and sadly, another lacklustre item. The soup was practically tasteless which really brought the walls crashing down. Brisket was soft and tender albeit as tasteless as the broth. The la mian was the only redemption as it was springy to the taste. Overall a disappointment.

        Golden Pastry ($5.50) - Another recommendation from the waitress (must take note never to trust waitresses), this is a salty pastry which is basically dough flattened and pan fried till its crispy and 'golden' in color with sesame seeds sprinkled over it. To me, all i tasted was flour, salted flour. Case closed.

        Fried Rice ($10.50) - Now this item i've heard much about, the fried rice comes with generous amounts of chicken meat, prawns and ham scattered over rice thats fried with eggs and minimal butter. And yet, even this dish didn't pull through as it was a tad too salty and just didn't pack the flavors i've heard so much about. Thingy commented that the main branch served better fried rice then this place.

        This unsatisfying, overcrowded and disappointing meal cost only a paltry $35.31 but thats a dollar too many in this case.

        As i'm writing this, i can't help but wonder why they have such good reviews by my friends. Maybe i was there at the wrong time but this is simply not acceptable. Unless i'm getting another treat, i'm never forking a cent if this is the best they offer.

          I never found crystal jade's food good, merely average or slightly above that.
