I’m back after a loooooong hiatus! How’s your 2017 going so far? Chinese New Year is fast approaching! (Jan. 28, 2017) The most important traditional holiday in China.
2 weeks ago, we had a very delightful lunch as we welcome a brand new beginning of Prosperity and Abundance with Crystal Jade’s Year of the Fire Rooster festivities this 2017 and this is the perfect place to spend your CNY!
To start with, we had the Xiao Long Bao for the appetizer. Can’t leave this place without having their signature XLB and of course their Avocado Smoothie which is my fave drink here! 🙂
We had the PROSPERITY SET MENU ( 20,800php / Good for 10 persons)
Prosperity Toss Salad (翡翠捞起鱼生) , also known as “YU SHENG” that signifies Abundance, Opulence and Vigor all year round! We chant the 12 steps to “LO HEI” (Lo Hei refers to the actual tossing action) to usher in good luck and auspicious tidings!
Treasure Pot (新春发财盆菜) , “POON CHOI” in Cantonese, a resplendent bowl of Chinese delicacies such as sea cucumber, abalone, peking duck, scallops, prawns and etc.
Steamed Live Garoupa in Soy Sauce
Pan-fried Kurobuta Pork with Teriyaki Sauce (烧汁香煎黑豚肉) , A premium Kurobuta meat, impecabbly flavoured with milk notes of sweet and savoury for that palatable experience.
Fried Rice with Scallop, Crab Meat & Crab Roe
Flourishing Fortune Glutinous Rice Cake (年年有余年糕) , A delicious sweet treat! (You can also buy separately at a retail price of 780php)
Lastly, my forever favorite Salted Egg Custard Bun!! 😀 (Separate Order)
Wishing you more luck and happiness this 2017! 新年快乐
