Crystal Jade Jiang Nan (SG)

翡翠水晶八式小龙包 Xiao Long Bao in multi-flavours, about S$12++

This was the first for me visiting Crystal Jade Jiang Nan concept restaurant.

We ordered just three dishes among ourselves for sharing…

The mini baos packed with enough flavour and minced meat, came in a variety of flavours – cheese, truffle, spinach, etc…

Some of them tasted the same in my opinion.

Ain’t fantastic ain’t bad either.

四川麦片虾 Szechuan cereal prawns S$22++

The favourite local dish of cereal prawns took on the Szechuan twist –  dried chilli thrown in for a spicy treat (rather than the usual chopped cili padi hidden amongst the buttered cereal flakes).

There were fried curry leaves as usual, fresh prawns with crunchy shells in tact.

Worth a try.

麻香红牛腩汤拉面 Spicy braised beef la mian (large) S$10.80++

The broth was light yet flavourful enough. Some tau pok (deep fried tofu) were added to soak up the piquant chilli oil.

Quite some beef chunks which were just tender to spare me from intense chewing exercise.

Overall, the price tags in Jiang Nan concept under Crystal Jade group were reasonable.

Either communal dishes or individual dishes were available.

I am not familiar with China’ geography so wiki-up the meaning here:

The region encompasses the Shanghai Municipality, the southern part of Jiangsu Province, the southern part of Anhui Province, the northern part of JiangxiProvince, and the northern part of Zhejiang Province.
