Baked Abalone & Diced Chicken Pastry

Set my expectation too high for these, and my first dish got me a little disappointed. The abalone are also diced, like the chicken, a pity we cannot really taste/tell which is abalone or mushroom?

Steamed Pork & Shrimp dumpling topped with caviar
Steamed Dumpling with Shrimp topped with Black Garlic

We also had Steamed Shanghai Xiao Long Bao. Fresh ingredients are the key to making good dim sums.

Poached Beancurd Skin rolled with Prawn in Superior Broth

Like how the beancurd roll with prawns got soaked in the flavourful broth.

Deep-Fried Cod Fish Cube with Passionfruit Sauce

Don't know why is this only an appetiser, because we feel that its so good to be one of the ''mains''. I am a cod fish lover and its lightly battered and then deep fried. We can't help but have a second piece.

Roast (Choose 1)

Crispy Pork Belly
BBQ Pork with Honey Sauce

You can only choose 1 roast in this category, each person will have about 2 slices. A pure-cantonese friend commented that its not up to his standard. Its pretty hard to find a really GOOD roast compared to olden days.

Soup (Choose 1)

Soup of the day

We did asked whats the soup of that day but i didn't really understand. Its light and perfect to go with this meal.

Scallop and Asparagus Thick Soup

Me, on the other hand had this instead. After this bowl I declared that I am full! Lots of tofu and scallops bits! Me & gf cleaned the bowl.

Wok-Fried Dish (Choose 1)

Cripsy Chicken with Foie Gras and Mango

Eat this in 1 mouthful! Combi is very good even though I dislike foie gras.

Sautéed Prawn with White Pine Mushroom and Black Truffle Sauce

Prawns are very fresh but a pity we couldn't taste the truffle sauce.

Dessert (Choose 1)

Chilled Mango Puree with Pomelo and Sago
Chilled Black Sesame with Coconut Milk

Decent desserts and we love the black sesame fragrance.

We ended our meal with another round of champagne!

Thank you Crystal Jade for having us!


  1. Nice review. How is the xiao long bao as compared to ding tai feng?

    1. Hi Shinvisa, thank you. I prefer DTF's xiao long bao as it is more juicy and the skin has a nicer bite.
