A date night with the hubby at Vivocity. We could not decide what to eat as there were queues everywhere. Hubby is a more asian food lover, so I suggested Crystal Jade Jiang Nan. I went to eat this a year ago for the first time. And I wanted to eat a more nourishing soup.
After about 40minutes of waiting, our table was finally ready.
[Chef Specialty] Double-boiled Black Chicken Soup with Cordyceps Flower & Chinese Herbs 虫草花药材炖乌鸡汤 [S$12.80++]
Hubby does not like the soup as he's not really a fan of herbs. His face was all scrunched up with drinking. I quite like it. Thick and rich. Though the black chicken is a little scary, cos it's black haha..
Original Xiao Long Bao 鲜肉小笼包 [S$1.20++ per pc]
Foie Gras Xiao Long Bao 鹅肝鲜肉小笼包 [S$2.30++ per pc]
Shrimp Xiao Long Bao 鲜虾小笼包 [S$2.20++ per pc]
We are able to mix and match a minimum of 6 xiao long baos. They have a total of 8 flavours to choose from. We find them too salty. The shrimp ones are the saltiest. The five other flavours that we didn't order are: Cheese, Spicy Beef, Spicy Chicken, Vegetable & Dried Beancurd and Black Truffle.
Deepfried Spinach Beancurd with Assorted Mushroom 珍菌菠菜豆腐 [S$12.80++]
This is the second time I ordered this. And I do like it as there are many varieties in this dish.
I guess next time we have to order the rice and noodles mains to try. As for the xiao long baos, we will be sticking to the DTF or PD =P
