We were running errands at Great World City and decided to have lunch at Crystal Jade Kitchen there at the same time. We're on a bit of a dim sum craze so it's been consecutive dim sum lunches every weekend.
We started off with some meats, the Soya Sauce Chicken ($8) was succulent, juicy and flavoursome, thoroughly braised with delicate soya sauce.
The Sweet Corn and Minced Chicken Thick Soup ($7.50) is one of my favourite soups here, luscious, thick and with plentiful sweet corn kernels and minced chicken.
The Steamed Pork Rib with Black Bean ($3.50)would have been nicer if the sliced chillis had a bit more kick to balance out the decadently fatty ribs. That said, the ribs were cooked just right, moist and tender.
The ubiquitous Steamed Pork with Crab Roe Dumpling "Siew Mai" ($4.30), filled with fresh minced pork and diced prawns, was, as usual, bouncy and juicy and delicious.
Our carbs for the day, Steamed Glutinous Rice ($4.20), tasty and moist and generously filled with conpoy, dried shrimps, diced chicken and Chinese black mushrooms. Here's a tip for those of you watching your weight. Glutinous rice, which is complex carbs, is one way to get your daily dose of carbs without the guilt and calorie overload.
