Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao @ Jurong Point

Category : Chinese

We used to frequent Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao all the time.

It was our default go-to dinner place until they pulled our favourite dishes from their menu a couple years back.

These were dishes we’ll order everytime we dine at Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao.

Hopeful that these dishes may be reinstated, we do pop by Crystal Jade once in a while to check out their menu.

When one of the dishes reappeared in their menu, we started returning to Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao albeit not as frequent as before.

This is Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao’s La Mian served with Double-boiled Chicken Soup @ S$10.80.

A server once shared with us that the Chicken Soup should be poured into the La Mian when she saw us seasoning the noodles with vinegar. We tried that and still prefer our La Mian with vinegar 🙂

It’s hard to go wrong with this dish. What’s not to like about a nicely done chicken soup?

Our only grouse is that the standard is not consistent across the different Crystal Jade branches. E.g. the double-boiled Chicken Soup at Jurong Point wasn’t as good as the one at Toa Payoh when we last dined at Crystal Jade.

The 2nd dish, which was my favourite La Mian, is Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao’s La Mian in Signature Pork Broth served with Deep-fried Pork Rib @ S$12.80.

It even has a star in the menu to indicate “Chef’s Recommendation”. So why was it removed in the 1st place? *Ponder*

Unfortunately, the higher the expectations, the harder the fall.

Firstly, it took quite a while to serve and I thought it was because they had to deep fry the pork rib. Alas, the pork rib wasn’t crispy or hot. It tasted/felt more like pre-fried pork rib left to stand since morning. I guess they most probably just forgot my order.

The Pork Broth soup was disappointing as well. It tasted like any other ordinary soup with noodles soaked in it.

Well, looking on the bright side, there’s nothing Crystal Jade’s chilli can’t save.
