Crystal Jade La Mian

I was craving for La Mian (Hand-Pulled Noodle) lately, so we headed up to Crystal Jade La Mian @ Grand Indonesia. Not only La Mian you can find here, they also serve Dimsum and Shanghai Delicacies.

Their cute and unique dinnerware.

The moment you are seated, they serve you this Peanut (5K). Its not a compliment..

Jasmine Chinese Tea (10K)

I ordered La Mian Soup with Prawn Dumplings (40K). Looked like an ordinary noodle soup, surprisingly the noodles were springy, the soup was clear yet rich and not overly salty. Served with five prawn dumplings which are fresh and big enough, the broth here is reasonably good and the dumplings are tasty. This is still worth a try.

Hot and Sour Soup La Mian (38K) for E, we found this soup quite appetizing with the thick and flavourful hot and sour soup.

I love this Chicken Xiao Long Bao (18K)! Picking up a dumpling, placing it onto porcelain spoon, then using chopsticks to poke a little hole in the skin of dumpling to let the soup flow out onto the spoon. We ordered one steamer of five dumplings, its wise, the skin was perfectly textured, each dumpling held a generous amount of delicious soup.

Overall, it is a modern style restaurant with a rich and diverse menu. Great food with great ambience...
