I was with an otaku at Sungei Wang plaza picking up his expensive Japanese action figures, and decided to head to Lot 10 for some La Mian (拉面) at Crystal Jade. According to the guy, this place serves one of the best La Mian in the region, and heaps better than the One Noodle at SS2, a place that I thought was pretty decent.

absolutely mouth-watering La Mian

The restaurant is located by the side of the Lot 10 main entrance, nicely decorated with wooden partition, pretty comfortable chairs, and a bar-style kitchen area so you can watch the chefs swinging dough into noodle. There is also an outdoor area, I imagine it’ll be pretty nice enjoying your bowl of noodle at night watching the carousel of people strolling down Bintang Walk.

We ordered 2 bowls of La Mian, one plain and one with beef, vegetable, xiao long bao (小龙包), shallow fried dumpling (Gyoza/鍋貼), a mango dessert, and some herbal tea.

We didn’t have to wait long before the dumpling is served. They were very delicious and juicy, still packing some soup together with the meat inside. The xiao long bao too were top notch, served steaming hot on top of some lettuce in the bamboo basket. You can even see the juice in the xiao long bao from the picture above, and it really tastes as good as it look. The vegetable too, wasn’t overcooked and the seasoning done just right, I found myself chewing down the stems as if it was some high quality asparagus.

The La Mian though, was something else. It was very smooth and rich in flavor to the point that the beef, though pretty delicious itself, proved to be a distraction to the savoring taste of the noodle. No wonder the dude ordered a plain La Mian instead. Comparing the La Mian here to the SS2 counterpart is like comparing Fiat to Ferrari, same country of origin, you might even say same soul, but totally different class. It really opened my taste to La Mian.

Of course, the location and the excellent quality of food does come at a price. We spent over RM 30 per person, but it was all worth it. I will definitely go there again when I head to town again.

    What a coincidence. Crystal Jade in Shanghai serves good xiao long bao too! Speaking of xiao long bao, it is not easy to find good xiao long bao in Shanghail, although it is suppose to be the place of origin. I find that Crystal Jade, Ding Tai Fong and Nan Xiang are probably the best places to go for xiao long bao in Shanghai.

  12. yahh..the la mein is da best!! :p but the xiao long pao just has too much pork to my liking. oohh i so miss oriental food! *sob*

  13. crystal jade is yummyyyy. they have this pan fried bun which is so good!

  14. They are my company’s client. Their La Mien is absolutely da best.

  15. Crystal Jade is the best Xiao Long Bao i had. This one is the first Shanghai style foods that i had. And it started my venture in Shanghai Food. Crystal Jade is a very famous restaurant in Singapore. You can see it in their business card. A LOT!!!

    Their foods is nice. I like it a lot. La Mian is nice. Bao Bao is thin in skin and nice. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

  17. […] The fried dumpling was simple enough, 10 tiny pieces in a plastic plate, with a dipping sauce that tasted like a mixture of red pepper and vinegar (or maybe some soya sauce too). The fried dumpling actually tasted very close to xiao long pao, with fatty pork inside and soup inside the dough skin. It was very, very deliciousm so good that I actually went there again a few days later. It would have been perfect if they actually provide some ginger strips. […]

  18. […] wise, SOHO is pretty similar to Crystal Jade and Dragon-i. A typical meal would be RM25-40 per person. While not the cheapest meal out there, it […]
