Treasure Pot or Poon Choi at Crystal Jade Dining In

Last week I was invited by Crystal Jade Dining In to try their famous Treasure Pot. Since I didn't know what it was and I haven't eaten at their fine dining branch in Bonifacio High Street I agreed. I've eaten at Crystal Jade Shanghai Delight in Vmall several times though.  ... [Read More]
