Roast Suckling Pig @ Jasmin Cantonese Restaurant, Bangkok

Prior to our flight to KL, we paid a visit to Jasmin Cantonese Restaurant located within the Times Square Building. Since 1991 Jasmin is known for serving authentic Hong Kong Cuisine at a reasonable price that is frequented by locals and expats.

This was recommended by Eric's Grandpa who visited this restaurant a number of years back. The Suckling Pig was quite good but was definitely not as good as Tang Jai Yoo nor Full Wealth Restaurant KL. The skin was quite crispy but did not shatter in your mouth. Our Pig also came with a basket of Bread Slices which was great with the Skin.

Deep Fried Pork Meat with Garlic

This was our second course of the Suckling Pig and I'm not a fan of it. The Pork Meat was quite dry. We only had a few pieces

Braised Sharks Fin Soup

Eric ordered this soup. We both found the soup to be a little bland despite the generous portions of Sharks Fin. The texture of the Sharks Fin was excellent. It had a nice bite.

Mushroom and Fish Maw Soup

This was my soup and it was decent. The Consomme had a very clean flavor and was good with the Fish Maw and Mushroom

Mushroom Siu Mai

The Siu Mai did not resemble any Siu Mai I've had before. It looked more like a Minced Pork Ball that was topped with Mushroom. Flavor-wise it was good. It had a nice combination of Pork Meat and Pork Fat making it flavorful and maintaining a bouncy texture. The Mushroom reinforced the meaty flavor of the pork.

Stir-Fried Morning Glory with Garlic

The Morning Glory was perfectly cooked maintaining a nice crunch with a nice garlic flavor infused into it.

We were definitely stuffed from our meal having shared an entire Suckling Pig between the two of us. However the quality of the food was mediocre in my opinion.

Food: 3/5
Service: 4/5
Ambiance: 3/5
Price: $$ (Approximately $25 per person)
