Crys­tal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao/jiang­nan

T. Dining by Singapore Tatler - - Chinese -

For Jiang­nan and Shang­hainese cuisine that’s de­li­cious and com­fort­ing, this es­tab­lish­ment ticks all the boxes for a diner seek­ing those fa­mil­iar flavours. Al­though rec­om­mended, the pan-fried pan­cake with scal­lion would shine more if it were moister. Bet­ter suited to lo­cal tastes, the sautéed egg white with con­poy and fish meat is clean-tast­ing and well-bal­anced, with hearty flavours. The restau­rant’s la mian with chilled poached chicken is a mem­o­rably fiery Sichuansty­le clas­sic fea­tur­ing handmade noodles and ten­der chicken topped with a dark Sichuan pep­per sauce, sesame seeds and spring onion. The fried mixed grain rice in a hot stone pot uses hum­ble in­gre­di­ents such as shred­ded egg, crispy white­bait, crunchy peanuts, spring onion, corn and salted radish to cre­ate a dish that’s im­pos­si­ble to re­sist.
