An uncannily delightful dessert at Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao

Last Sunday, we found ourselves in Greenhills because my brother heard about this new Chinese restaurant called Crystal Jade Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao. I have not heard about it before then, but my brother said it's been getting rave reviews.

When we got there, judging from the long lines outside the restaurant, we were in for a treat. We ordered a lot, for a group of only three.

Drunken Chicken Marinated with Chinese Wine & Wolfberry (P288)

Steamed Soupy Pork Dumpling "Xiao Long Bao" 5 pcs. (Php158)

Noodle with Dried Shrimp and Peanut in Spicy Sauce (Php288)

Shredded Beef with Mushroom in Spicy Sauce (Php290)

Chicken Fillet in Lemon Sauce (Php288)

Seafood Fried Rice (Php288)

My favorite? The Deep fried Souffle Ball with Red Bean Paste (Php138). It's rather hard to explain, this dessert. It's light and crunchy and fluffy at the same time and it has a mildly sweet red been paste center. How good is it? Well, I finished it off even before I even got to take a picture of it. That should count for something... All in all, it's a perfect finish for a really satisfying albeit heavy dinner.
