Ex-Crystal Jade Chef-Turned-Hawker Now Sells Frozen Xiao Long Baos
Now you can enjoy 'Crystal Jade'-style xiao long baos anytime.
Chinese chef Li Huaizhi has been running his own kopitiam stall at Holland Drive called Supreme Ramen Xiao Long Bao for the past two years. His Shanghai-style xiao long baos are very popular — the Liaoning native, 51, used to be a dim sum chef at Crystal Jade and Tung Lok for a few years before he started his hawker business. When we first interviewed him in 2018, he told us he had been making xiao long baos and noodles “for more than 20 years”.
