Crystal Seafood Restaurant
Who thought the west could have decent yum cha places? I didn’t! Nadine (another pigged-out administrator) also goes to Crystal Seafood restaurant for yum cha so I thought i’d do a quick review on this since I ate here on saturday.
I’ve eaten yum-cha here multiple times mainly because after 3 hours of cycling and running around homebush in the early morning.. the only place that comes to our mind is having a good meal for a reasonable / cheap price. Sky Phoenix Rhodes would be a closer solution but I don’t think a group of us is prepared to pay a shit load for tiny dumplings especially when our stomachs are completely empty and our metabolism is firing. Besides I don’t think the staff at sky phoenix would let us in with our cycling clothes LOL!!!
I don’t think this is the best yum cha place but I do think it is very reasonable for the west! It changes the whole perspective of having to travel to the city, chatswood, or hurstville for yum cha! They have a huge selection and my favourite of all they have a “PEAKING DUCK PANCAKE TROLLY” To be honest I go here for that hahahahah!!! Oh and they even sell FRIED ICE-CREAM!!!
