Last time I went to Hong Kong, I had praised this restaurant called C-Jade for its Teochew style food located in New Town Plaza. You can read about it HERE.
Unfortunately, it had closed some time during the 1.5 years I was away. Luckily, in the vicinity there was another one in the same chain but this time specializing in noodles and Soup-filled dumplings. Its called Crystal Jade and located right across from The Spaghetti House. This was the one where the previous evening we had been waiting on at the same time but didn’t get a seat quick enough. This time, we managed to get a seat relatively quickly.
Here’s what we had to share with each other:
Crystal Jade is pretty good at what it does. Everything tasted really good. My favorite in this meal has to go to the 5 grain fried rice. I’m a huge fan of fried rice but not 5 grains however this one was spot-on tasty. Healthy and delicious? Count me in any time 😉 I’m definitely going to try to replicate this one in my spare time one of these days!
A few days later, I met up with my soon-to-be-wed cousin and her mom (another aunt), along with my mom for lunch also at Crystal Jade. The menu doesn’t vary very much between lunch and dinner but with another group, we also got to try something new. My cousin chose for us. My aunt was on her vegetarian day of the month so we had to adjust a few dishes to suit her diet that day.
For this lunch, the noodles which I can’t remember exactly what was in it was really good. The soup-filled dumplings were splendid and the best of all was the beancurd rolls. They were so delicious. The fried pumpkin and taro had a very good taste but I’ve never been a huge fan of these sort of dishes.
From what I know, Crystal Jade is a chain that specializes on different types of Chinese cuisine. I enjoyed this one more than the Teochew style or maybe its just my memory fading from the previous experience. Plus, I love Shanghai cuisine a lot. This place is really awesome. The service is decent and its very accessible in New Town Plaza in Shatin.
I had some great foodie memories here 🙂
Have you ever tasted Shanghai cuisine? Are you a fan of dumplings and/or vegetarian food?
