Day 8…. 17th March 2012….Saturday… Crystal Jade Palace – Dim sum restaurant
After almost a week in Seoul, we thought that the kids might want or miss eating something familiar from back home. We decided to have Dim Sum – a brunch
Dim sum refers to a Cantonese style of Chinese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Dim sum is also well known for the unique way it is served in some restaurants, wherein fully cooked and ready-to-serve dim sum dishes are carted around the restaurant for customers to choose their orders while seated at their tables.
Crystal Jade Palace is the Korean branch of the international brand “Crystal Jade” which has its main offices located in Singapore. The restaurant gained popularity as an authentic Cantonese-style restaurant, eventually entering the Korean market as well. Crystal Jade Palace serves the original tastes of Cantonese cooking such as the ever so delicious Chinese dumplings, dim sum

We are also here to meet our Korean friends & introduce some of our home cuisine to them. They decided to meet us at the restaurant at 11:30am
We went to KTO to book a reservation for us & to pre-order a Peking Duck, but found that there is no need to pre-order.
We brought our own Taiwanese Oolong tea leaves to brew where the tea leaves are partially fermented, imparting to them the characteristics of both green and black teas. Its taste is more similar to green tea than black tea, but has less a “grassy” flavour than green tea. The three major oolong-tea producing areas are on the southeast coast of China e.g. Fujian, Guangdong and Taiwan
We sat from 11:30am to almost 3pm chatting & parted ways
The kids decided to revisit Pororo Park & last minute shopping before tomorrow departure
