Dimsum lovers rejoice!! Crystal Jade Dining In in BGC still offers their Weekend Dimsum Buffet. When I learned about their dimsum promo, I went all nuts and drooled over photos of their Siomai, Hakaw, Dumplings, Pork Ribs etc.. I was even more ecstatic when I learned that their Baked Bo Lo Bbq Pork Bun and Custard Bun with Salted Egg Yolk, which I was able to try during BGC Eats 2013, were included in the promo!

For our dimsum cravings, we often go to Banawe especially from 9pm onwards to avail of their dimsum promo. In fact, I was able to make a blog post about it comparing our favorite dimsum places in the area. Check it out here:(www.itsberyllicious.com/2013/10/dimsum-battle-in-banawe-causeway.html)
We enjoy feasting on various dimsum for as low as P48. But once in a while, we also like to try fancy dimsum places that offer premium quality ingredients, wide assortment of dimsum choices and better dining ambiance. I really prepared myself when D decided to do a post-birthday celebration at Crystal Jade Dining In together with our dimsum buddy R. Our goal was to try all kinds of dimsum on the menu.
They give out this paper menu where you just write the number of orders for each dimsum.
Sadly, my favorite beancurd roll, both steamed and fried, were not available during our visit. :(
Steamed Pork & Shrimp Dumpling with Crab Roe/Siomai (P190)
Crystal Jade's classic siomai promises a meaty and flavorful version that won't disappoint dimsum lovers.
Steamed Shrimp Dumpling/ Hakaw (P190)
The hakaw on the other hand was filled with generous pieces of plump and juicy shrimp.
Steamed Chicken Feet with Special Sauce (P160)
Steamed Shrimp and Spinach Dumpling (P160)
We couldn't get enough of Crystal Jade's Shrimp and Spinach Dumpling that reminds us of our favorite kuchay dumplings from Causeway. We had a total of 4 orders of this.
Steamed Vegetarian Dumpling with Coriander (P160)
Steamed Pork Rib in Black Bean Sauce (P160)
Steamed Rice Roll with BBQ and Coriander (P180)
I was looking forward to trying out the shrimp version of their steamed rice roll, but unfortunately, it was no longer included in the list. We enjoyed the bbq version with the special sweet and savory sauce so much, that we decided to order another one.
Deep Fried Yam Dumpling with Scallop, Minced Pork and Mushroom (P180)
Pan Fried Carrot Cake with Dried Shrimp and Preserved Meat (P160)
Deep Fried Shrimp and Shredded Chicken Spring Roll (P160)
Baked Bo Lo BBQ Pork Bun (P180)
My favorite baked buns filled with savory pork asado fillings. The buns may not be as soft and heavenly as Tim Ho Wan's, but I really enjoyed the bbq pork and sweet pineapple crust.
Steamed Cream Custard Bun with Salted Egg Yolk (P160)
Another must try is Crystal Jade's salted egg custard bun. Savor the sweet and buttery custard filling oozing out from the soft steamed buns. Guilty pleasure at its finest!
I may have a soft spot for Crystal Jade's Baked Bo Lo Pork Buns, but their classic bbq pork bun still managed to get my attention. Normally, I would skip this in other dimsum houses, but not at Crystal Jade Dining In.

We really had a great time enjoying Crystal Jade Dining In's weekend dimsum buffet promo. We managed to order a total of 22 dimsum items. As much as we want to do a second round on each dimsum we ordered, we were already full after finishing all the buns. We did a second, third and even fourth round on some of our favorites like Siomai, Hakao, Steamed Shrimp and Spinach Dumpling, Steamed Rice Roll with Bbq and Coriander, Baked Bo Lo Bbq Pork Buns, and Steamed Cream Custard Bun with Salted Egg Yolk. We will definitely go back for more! Hope by that time they will already have the beancurd items.
