We celebrated our youngest colleague’s birthday today during lunch time. We found out he is so young! Usually you do not ask people about their age for no reason, but since we are celebrating his birthday, we get to ask! (hehe…)
We wanted to have Laksa Steamboat initially. We saw from their website that there’s a nearer branch at Holland Village, so we went there. We were dissapointed when we found out they have closed this branch! (Arrgh.. don’t believe their website!).
We had a choice to either stay in Holland Village or drive to Telok Blangah. Everyone unanimously decided we shall eat in Holland Village. So we walk over to Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao.
The starters were pickles. Chai Por chunks. Delicious! Everyone was happily eating until a colleague mentioned that eating too much of these causes pre-mature balding. Suddenly you see a few chopsticks back on the table. haha…
What we ate, in order of their appearance.
La Mian in Hot and Sour Soup. Like the tangy taste of it. You can choose the different thickness of noodles if you want.
This is the choking fiery La Mian. Be careful on your first mouth!
It was quite nice, but just be careful. :-p
Since we had like 9 of us, we had double portions of Jelly Fish. It’s always a favourite.
This is delicious for those who like pork slices. I love the pungeant garlic on top of it. Wrapped inside the pork, cucumbers and carrots.
This is one plate of super tender beef.
We had two portions of this deep fried eel too.
When you are in a xiao long bao shop, you just got to order it! 3 steamers of it.
The other carbo we had for the carbo cravers. Delicious noodles with veg and meat.
(Forgot the name. hehe..)
This is roast chicken with onions. Those are onion bits on top. I like the onion topping more than the chicken.
For those with cholestorol problem, eat more ‘black fungus’. The black fungus goes well with Kai Lan.
Last carbo for the meal, seafood fried rice.
As if it is tradition, we went over to Coffee Club for our muddy mudpies.
Happy Birthday Mr Y!
