Sautéed Egg Noodle with Seafood & Assorted Vegetable in XO Sauce

3.0

at Crystal Jade Restaurant

-Sogong, Jung, Seoul, Republic of Korea-

with IL

My 2nd visit to this restaurant (see most recently 3.358 Crystal Hot Pot).

We were in the neighborhood for a business meeting with a sales rep from a publishing house, which ended at lunchtime.

Steamed Shrimp Dumpling (3.5): I find that hargao is a reliable test to determine whether a kitchen has the Cantonese chops.

10 years ago, the menu had focused primarily on huo guo, but has since expanded to offer Cantonese dishes.

The food was quite good.  Best representation of authentic Cantonese that I’ve encountered in Korea yet.
