Jo and I went to Jiang Nan Chun over the weekend for some yummy dimsum! (: We reserved a table for 2 for the 1.30pm seating and we arrived early (at around 1.10pm) so I was pretty worried that we'd to wait for 20mins for our table but thankfully, the people at Jiang Nan Chun were very accommodating and they tried to set our table up as quickly as possible so we only had to wait for about 5mins or so! (:
$69 per pax after service charge and GST. This is my second time having an ala carte style dimsum buffet and I think it's quite a good change from the usual western/ international buffets.
Okay here are the photos of some of the dishes that we had that day (we got a tad too lazy towards the end of our meal). Pardon me if I can't remember what some of the dishes are or if I mis-name the dishes:
fish maw soup. It was warm and comforting, not too sticky and not too generous with the maw either. Jo later ordered another bowl of black chicken soup which we didn't photograph.
Some spicy meaty dimsum which Jo said was good!
Fried peking duck skin wraped with thin crepe. I absolutely love this (even though I remove the best part of the dish - the peking duck skin - before eating the rest! haha
The next 3 dishes are my absolute favourite because they were so decadently juicy - the three fish dishes that were recommended by the waitress who served us! Sorry I forgot the names but you can ask the waitresses/ waiters for their recommendation and they're likely to ask you to order these 3 fish dishes:
siew mai for Jo which she said was okay. Oh at Jiang Nan Chun, you can tell them specifically how many pieces of a particular dish you would like and they'll serve it right up! This prevents food wastage and you can also satisfy your immense craving for a particular dish if you like/ want!
Dried scallops porridge which was yum! I still prefer Crystal Jade's porridge but this was good too!
wasabi prawns! Definitely ranked up there with the fried mango fritters so you should order this if you were to go to Jiang Nan Chun one day.
asparagus with scallops. We love this dish!
spinach mushroom tofu dish which tasted like something I had at Man Fu Yuan at Intercontinental Hotel. Yummy (:
char siew bun which was not too bad (:
The dessert menu's pretty extensive and we were happy to share:
egg tarts - they were average,
jelly with aloe vera cubes - I liked it more than Jo because I finished my bowl whereas hers was half-full before we left
a sinfully good avocado dessert (which tasted like avocado milk shake) and mango pudding (one of the better ones that both of us have tasted thus far).
Alright that's all for now (: Happy Thursday!
