Crystal Jade Shanghai Delight is bringing back its popular Weekday Dinner Dimsum Buffet. The buffet starts from 5pm up 9:30pm all weekdays from Nov. 16, 2015 to December 31, 2015 only. It will be priced at P488+ and will included unlimited iced and hot tea. Dimsum is traditionally served during brunch to lunchtime but Crystal Jade breaks the rules a bit by offering it for the mass of hungry diners weary after a day of work.
Here are my favorites from the list of dimsum items.
Cold Cucumber with Minced Garlic and Sesame Oil. This is the only appetizer choice but it was so good I finished at least one serving of this. Primes your taste buds for the dimsum feast ahead.
Crystal Jade Shanghai Delight is popular for their Xiao Long Bao but I’m really not a fan of those so I concentrated on their other dimsum offerings.
Steamed Pork and Shrimp with Crab Roe Siew Mai. Crisp and juicy blend of pork, pork fat, shrimps and a little crab roe on top to liven things up.
Pan Fried Shanghai Pork Buns. There’s a nice crust at the bottom with meat enveloped by supple bun.
Steamed Spareribs with Black Bean Sauce. They add cubes of taro making the meat tastier. The meat was tender with a good amount of fat for more flavor. There was also hardly any loose pieces of bone that detracts from the enjoyment.
Flour Rolls. You can get these steamed or fried, I suggest fried so they will serve it with condensed milk on the side. Perfect for a tummy stuffer or a sweet ending.
I don’t eat Chicken Feet but Irene gave it high marks.
Other choices include:
- Steamed Soupy Pork Dumpling “Xiao Long Bao”
- Pork Dumpling with Hot Chili Sauce
- Deep Fried Spring Rolls
- Steamed Vegetable Dumpling
- “Beijing” Pork Dumpling
- Pan Fried Carrot Cake
The buffet is limited in terms of choices but I’m perfectly fine having basket after basket of my favorites.
