Har Kau, Siew Mai but maybe not Lor Mai Kai (don't remember seeing that one on the menu). This joint has pretty much every dim sum I can rattle off from memory.
Granted, it's not all fantastic like those you find in proper yum cha places but there's gold to find on the menu. You don't even have to dig hard.
Double Boiled Chicken Soup, my absolute favourite. It's deceptively plain and simple. The light golden broth is pure chicken. All the flavour is supposed to be in the soup but the meat itself – so absolutely tender – drenched in soup, the entire mouthful loses none of the taste.
The next dish that deserves the gold medal is the Sautéed Egg White with fish meat and conpoy. It's served with runny yolk. Break that over the medley of fresh fish, conpoy and egg white below and voilà, a taste of heaven.
Not all Chinese comfort food is dim sum, I've realised. And if you're looking for that at Crystal Jade, I suggest you zoom in on those two dishes.rumblingtummy.tumblr.com
