I eat at Crystal Jade pretty often and almost every time we will order their soup dumplings. Gah it's making me hungry now as I type.
4 in a basket, was it $5 or $6? I would pick them over Ding Tai Fung's anytime. You can literally see how thin the skin was. It taste just as good as the soup dumplings in Shanghai.
It's a cold dish of meat marinated in sweet soy sauce. Very shanghainese style.
Pan fried dumplings, a little let down, I thought it's suppose to come with Chinese chives in it, but it's plain meat...
Spicy beef noodles, I really like the texture of the noodles.
On the left in the clay pot was the "lion head" meat ball with Chinese lettuce. It literally melts in your mouth. Yes, it really does.
In the middle was bamboo stalks marinated with sweet soy sauce, cold dish. Love it!
Absolutely recommended, we've been there so many times that the wait staff could happily recognize us.
Cost: most of the time bill came to around $30++ for two person.
