The chicken is extremely juicy and delicious. Because it’s served cold, the skin has a gelatinous texture. You will enjoy how well the ginger/scallion sauce enhances the chicken.

The tofu is made from smooth egg tofu, which they claim is prepared in-house. Everything about this dish is wonderful, from the fish to the sauce. People have reordered on several times because one order is never enough.

Furthermore, buchi is readily available here. The buchi of Crystal Dragon is bright and airy. It’s perfectly deep-fried without being oily. It contains exactly the proper amount of lotus paste within, making it a delicious dessert.

The Mango Pomelo with Sago dessert goes well with your buchi. The sweetness level is exactly ideal, and you’ll like the fresh mango puree combined with sweet pomelo chunks. It’s served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream, which adds added richness and creaminess.
