           Whenever I would gush to Rina about a fantastic place that I had eaten at during my US Trip and try to make her jealous, she would always fire back at me, "Well you didn't try the dimsum buffet of Crystal Jade", knowing it's something that I regret missing out on.

          Every time I would think about how I lost the opportunity to feast on Crystal Jade Dining In's unlimited Dimsum was like a spear through the heart. 

        Fortunately, the dimsum gods recently smiled on me, with Crystal Jade Dining In bringing back their Weekend Buffet! 

         You asked for it, (fine, I BEGGED for it) and Crystal Jade listened! The Weekend Dimsum Buffet is Back!

    For P788++, you may select from an impressive line up of freshly made dimsum dishes that the Crystal Jade name has become synonymous with! The promo started last May 30, and is available from 2pm to 5pm at  Crystal Jade Dining IN at Bonifacio High Street Central. The offer includes free flowing iced tea, and complimentary noodles for groups of 4 or more! Children aged 12 and below are charged 50%. 

   Here's a glimpse of some of the mouth watering dimsum items available in Crystal Jade Dining In's Weekend Dimsum Buffet! 

Rina's favorite Steamed Shrimp Dumpling aka HAKAW

         And since it was unlimited, she decided to try the Steamed Shrimp and Spinach Dumpling as well!

     I, on the other hand, worked on numerous baskets of their Steamed Pork and Shrimp Dumpling, aka Siomai! 

       I also really enjoyed Crystal Jade's version of the Steamed Rice Roll with BBQ Pork and Coriander. Definitely something you must try!

            Whenever we eat in a Dimsum place, it is absolutely mandatory that Rina order one Steamed Pork Rib in Black Bean Sauce each. Our marriage depends on it. 

        Another dish that I absolutely loved from Crystal Jade Dining In, was the Steamed Cream Custard Bun with Salted Egg Yolk. The soft, steamed bun reveals a luscious, creamy custard filling, with the gentle touches of salted egg yolk, for added awesomeness. 

          We also ordered the Deep Fried Shrimp and Chicken Spring Roll from the fried section, however it was clearly my least favorite among everything we tried, but still worth a try. 

            My favorite item on the Dimsum Buffet menu is without a doubt, the  Baked Bo Lo BBQ Pork Bun

A photo posted by RichieZ (@pickiesteater) on

          Biting through the soft bun revealed a delicious BBQ Pork mixture that is the perfect blend of sweet and savory. In the battle of the best Pork Buns in the Metro, Crystal Jade's Baked Bo Lo BBQ Pork Bun can stand toe to toe with the best the country has to offer. 


             Rina ended her meal with the Coffee Jelly, which she really enjoyed. I'm not a fan of Coffee, so I opted for..

        The Japanese Glutinous Rice Dumpling with Mango Cream, which was nothing short of amazing. I initially thought it was one of those frozen mochi desserts, but it turned out to be  a cold mochi, filled with a mouthwatering sweet mango cream.

       The perfect way to end your meal!

           As we were finishing up our meal, we were elated that our Idol, Kapitan Jeff, (aka the man who add's the spice to Jane Go's sugar), joined us for a short chat! We Missed you Kap! Nice to see you and the family!! 

Thank you to Kenneth, Miriam and Aida for the amazing dimsum experience!

  45. When I saw this post, I immediately thought of my significant other. This is without knowing what you asked in the "leave a blog comment". Why I thought of him? Because he is the best buffet partner I've ever known in my entire life (I am only 33. :D)! And aside from that, both of us are into Chinese cuisines. And whenever we go crave for Chinese food, the number one resto in our list is of course, Crystal Jade! Just mentioning the restos name makes my tummy growl in hunger for dimsum! hahaha!
