MY FAVORITES! (C for Crystal Jade)

Now who hasn't heard of or eaten at Crystal Jade? If you haven't, you either live under a rock or hate Chinese food with a passion. In Singapore it's a ginormous restaurant chain. Click to read about just how HUGE it is. In Hong Kong the most popular one is CJ La Mian Xiao Long Bao. They have others, but I have no idea where they are or what they serve. CJ is my older son's go-to place for comfort food. He slurps their pork dumpling noodles like there's no tomorrow. Personally I like their la mian in hot and spicy soup but my favorites are actually not their noodles nor xiao long baos (soup dumplings).

Perfectly cooked green beans with minced pork

Healthy looking (and tasting) fried rice

Sauteed mushrooms wrapped in tofu skin

*Lines are way looooooong, service is brisk but can be brusque. The one at World Trade Center in Causeway Bay is the least busy and therefore the most relaxing, in my opinion.
