son is back for short break. 3 of u swent to hollandv for lunch on 12.8.2016.
son didn’t think much of nakhon so we went to crystal jade lamian xiaolongbao for lunch.
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…
saliva chicken 口水鸡 still tasted good..
we still like it.
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.
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.
