"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Dim Sum @ Crystal Jade

Recently realised that Crystal Jade serves quite good dim sum.
The century egg porridge is ok only. Even though the porridge is very smooth, the taste was not very great. They failed to infuse the century egg and pork flavour into the white porridge. $6.80.

Xiao Long Bao, which has always been my favourite since Uni days, is sold now at Crystal Jade Kitchen! 4 xiao long bao for $4. Somehow, I felt that the skin has thickened at the top. But the flavour is good and the amount of soup in the dumpling is sufficient.

They have four types of chee cheong fun – scallop, prawn, dough fritters and char siew. The scallop one is special, and I quite like them followed by the prawn ones. The most important part of chee cheong fun is the soya sauce and the “skin”. The sauce is good, and the skin is just of the correct thickness. But of course, the thinner the skin, the better!

There comes my favourite har kau! The skin is of the right thickness, and the prawn inside are whole prawns, not the minced up type! The siew mai is all right.

Nice egg tarts are not easy to find in Singapore! Crystal Jade sells really good egg tarts, especially good when they are fresh out of the oven! $2.80 for 3 pieces.

My colleague like this E-fu mee. I took a bite of it, and I don’t think it is as tasty as what he described it to be. Canton Kitchen’s e-fu mee is much nicer. $10.50.
