xiaolongbao 小笼包

son is back for short break. 3 of u swent to hollandv for lunch on 12.8.2016.

daughter wanted nakhon but shutter not up yet at 11.45am & people were sitting outside.

son didn’t think much of nakhon so we went to crystal jade lamian xiaolongbao for lunch.

last time i made a post on crystal jade lamian xiaolongbao was on 11.1.2015.

didn’t think i was here much if at all since.

anyway the xiaolongbao 小笼包 today (we had 2 trays) was substandard, way below par. people were saying since L Capital Asia, LVMH’s private equity arm took over, food standard going south? don’t know but today’s xiaolongbao 小笼包 was very different from one of the best i had always enjoyed here, soup was still sweet but not as much, & skin & fillings were not good as many others i had, just very mediocre la…

beef brisket lamian 牛腩拉面 my daughter’s favourite. she still liked it today.

i tasted a bit but i think that sicc’s version was still much better, both the soup & the briskets/tendons.

spicy xo seafood fried rice

the best here for me was the seafood fried rice in spicy xo sauce.

rice was so fragrant, individual grain. we say “tio tio” in teochew. good amount of ingredients. quantity seemed to have shrink quite a bit for S$14.80.

price for lunch was not cheap at S$61 for 3pax for the quality of food.
