Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao
Located at the Arrival Area of the
Hong Kong International Airport
My aunt and I arrived in Hong Kong yesterday around one in the afternoon. Before heading to our hotel, we stopped by Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao for lunch.
Beancurd with Preserved Egg = 40 HKD
This is the favorite dish of my aunt. She loves the soft texture of the beancurd topped with pork floss and century egg.
Steamed Pork Dumplings "Shanghai" Style = 30 HKD
For me, this is one of the best xiao long paos in Hong Kong. It has a richer flavor compared to the version of Ding Tai Fung. The xiao long paos that they serve in the Greenhills branch is nothing compared to the ones they serve in Hong Kong. If you are craving for xiao long paos in Manila, I suggest you go to Peking Garden in Greenbelt 3 instead.
Wanton in Chili Oil = 38 HKD
If you like your dumplings spicy, then I suggest this over xiao long pao. It also has a stronger flavor because of the chili oil.
Assorted Vegetable Wrapped in Deep-Fried
Beancurd Sheets = 48 HKD
I personally love crispy beancurd skin so this is a dish that I always order every time I visit this restaurant.
Taro Pastry = 28 HKD
If you like desserts that are not too sweet then I recommend these pastries with taro filling.
Sesame Cream = 22 HKD
I am not a fan of black sesame but my aunt loves it very much. I guess it is an acquired taste.
