Crystal Jade Dining In, VivoCity

I thought this place was a good showcases of contemporary Chinese (Cantonese) food. The food here can be a little pricey, dependent on what you order. The dishes which will inflate the bill are the regular treasures from the sea like shark's fin, lobsters and for this place, geoduck clam as well. The experience was bolstered by very prompt and efficient service staff. The kind of Chinese restaurant I like. Would like to be back again to pursue their extensive menu. Now I wonder why is this one labelled "Dining In"...

I love eating gooey ducks. My mother loves to make it with rice, tastes great! Though I do think you have to get used to the texture.

Geoducks are prized foods in food markets worldwide and are a highly valued fishery for the state (Puget Sound) , estimated at $40 million annually.

Check out geoduck for info.
