Last Meal at Crystal Jade

I was recently in Hong Kong. Get to know what Hong Kong has to offer through my adventure. This is the last of 14 parts.

Murtle and I capped our Hong Kong trip with dinner at Crystal Jade.

Times Square branch


We ordered the two specialties of Crystal Jade...

Xiao Long Bao (28HKD)
Dumplings are bigger than Din Tai Fung’s. Can give Din Tai Fung a run for its money as skin is delicate with a rich soupy broth going for it. Not a bad version at all.

Spice Beef Noodles (38 HKD)
Marvelous!!! Noodles are fresh and beef pieces are very flavorful. They also got the spice level right. One million times better than the noodles we had at Yee Shun Milk Company.

One thing that didn’t fare too well is the chicken dish:

Marinated Salty Chicken in Ning Bo Style (48HKD)
It baffles me that this comes highly recommended by Crystal Jade. So ordinary as chicken is bland. Blah in a plate.

It’s a shame that the chicken dish was such a letdown as it dampened the overall dining experience at Crystal Jade. I wouldn’t mind going back to Crystal Jade though since I’d love to have another helping of the beef noodles. 

Crystal Jade has branches all over Hong Kong. For more information, pls. visit
