Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao

Xiaolongbao is a dimsum - buns are served hot in bamboo baskets in which they were steamed, often on a bed of cabbage, and dipped in chinese vinegar with ginger slices. In Hong Kong, Crystal Jade's "La mien Xiao long bao" offers the best tasting xiaolongbao for 26.00 HKD/4 pieces:

but be sure that you book ahead , otherwise be prepared to join the crowd outside the restaurant for a typical 30 minutes to an hour wait. Yes, we are part of these crowd...
Their noodles are also good as well as their other dishes, but I forgot to take photos of the dishes and I can't seem to decrypt the chinese receipt (I shall refresh my chinese skills...lol!) so...

The wait is definitely worth it, will surely be back here when in Hong Kong.

That's All!
