Crystal Jade Xintiandi

Crystal Jade

Happy birthday to me? Hahaha, I finally turned nineteen! Since my dad won’t be in town today because of a business trip, my family and I stopped by Crystal Jade last night for some of my favorite Chinese comfort food.

Cake + presents + this dinner + an hour of pampering at the nail salon = my day was made 🙂

I first visited here with my mom this summer. This is when I first got to try the pan-fried dumplings (Shengjianbao) and fell in love with them. Since my whole family was eating here today, we ordered a lot more dishes with much more variety. We walked in a little before 6 pm, and we were seated immediately (not at a round table though).

Sweet and Sour Pork

Always good. The paprika was especially good – really juicy and sweet.

Green Beans with Beef

This was good. A bit salty though.

So good so goooood. Perfect combination of savory meat and crispy/crunchy bun.

Pressed Pork

(my dad ordered this…it tasted like cold gelatin. It was okay, but I wouldn’t order it again)
