Cantonese cuisine rules at the Imperial Treasure, and individual servings means there’s no mad clash of chopsticks over common dishes. Items worth savouring include crisp prawns topped with tiny bits of Chinese sausage ; chilli over perfectly steamed perch; and smoky seared beef cubes topped with garlic chips.

Pre CNY Celebration

It was our monthly dinner gathering as well as a pre CNY celebration. The venue of choice was Imperial Treaure Cantonese @ Terminal 3, which also happens to be one of my favourite Chinese restaurants in Singapore.

Salmon Yusheng - My first yusheng (鱼生) of 2015 and it got us off to a great start; Thick slices of salmon and fresh tasting crackers coupled with a not cloyingly sweet plum sauce and crunchy strips of carrot, radish etc. Simple yet delightful. Only small gripe I had was that there seemed to be a lingering lemongrass taste in a couple of mouthfuls which I'm no big fan of.

Pea Shoots With Bamboo Shoots - The prized winter bamboo shoots (冬筍) were in season so we had them stir fried with pea shoots for our obligatory greens dish. Which was quite nice really; Nice wok hei and savouriness to the pea shoots whilst the bamboo shoots were very crunchy with a tinge of rawness.

Crabmeat With Egg White And Italian White Truffle Oil - Scallops were our original choice but unfortunately, the quality was suspect that day hence the decision by the restaurant to temporarily withdraw it from the menu. We eventually settled for crab meat in lieu and honestly, it was equally good (prawns don't go well though. See my previous writeup here). The crab meat imparted a nice crustacean flavour to the egg white, which acted as a sponge for the wonderfully aromatic and earthy white truffle oil.

Sauteed Beancurd With Mushroom - Silky smooth with a nice savoury finish from the layer of seaweed atop. Topped with a generous serving of mushrooms. What's not to like?

Sauteed Prawn Ball - Huge, fresh and crunchy de-shelled prawns stir fried with leek, carrots and spring onion; Simple unadulterated sweetness and goodness.

Roasted Duck - The rather sizeable whole duck sported a nicely crisp skin, tender and juicy meat sans an overwhelming fowl taste. Excellent.

Truffle Mee Pok With Lingzhi Mushroom - This off the menu dish remains one of our must order items whenever we drop by Imperial Treasure Cantonese. Al dente mee pok coupled with a prominently aromatic truffle oil taste and crunchy beansprouts; Definitely worth the carbohydrates!

Durian Pudding - And we ended off dinner with a round of durian pudding. Chilled and smooth with a distinct taste of durian and bits of the fruit lodged within the pudding. Great way to finish.

The 6 of us clocked in at almost $360, which was pretty reasonable given the quality and quantity of food (we struggled to finish the duck). Service was decent and it was a great dinner all in all!

I was welcoming a friend to our country.  I wanted to present a food paradise at Singapore to my oversea friend.  So this was the dim sum place that we had our lunch.  It was rather quite close to last order.  Luckily my friend liked this style of dim sum.

Full Imperial Treasure Group (Cantonese Cuisine) review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/02/zi-char-imperial-treasure-group.html


Went to Imperial Treasure Group (Cantonese Cuisine), which is known for its tasty and high quality Chinese Cantonese Zi Char dishes. But the others decided to go for their excellent Dim Sum instead. As part of the Imperial Treasure Group, Cantonese Cuisine has the same hallmarks of Chinese fine dining, and uses only the freshest ingredients, allowing them to shine through on the plate.

Ambience at Imperial Treasure Group (Cantonese Cuisine) is spacious, laid out for communal group dining. I did note that the lights were rather dim though. The interior has colours of teak and white, contrasted by Imperial Chinese decor. Furniture is comfortable and functional, while the tables are sufficiently large to place all dishes ordered at once.

Service at Imperial Treasure Group (Cantonese Cuisine) is very good. Staff are friendly and efficient, and are able to make recommendations from the menu. They also help with portioning of food if requested. I also liked that they came round regularly to top up drinks.

Imperial Treasure Group (Cantonese Cuisine) focuses mainly on Cantonese cuisine, whose hallmarks of freshness of ingredients is well showcased here. The Dim Sum is very good. Prices at Imperial Treasure Group (Cantonese Cuisine) are slightly higher than average, because of their insistence on using premium quality ingredients.

The Steamed Prawn Dumpling has fresh and meaty prawns / shrimp, and the skin isn't too thin or prone to breaking. The Fried Bean Skin Roll, while rather oily, is crisp and quite satisfying when bit.

The Pork And Prawn Dumpling has tightly packed filling, and a whole shrimp within. The Deep Fried Prawn Dumpling was rather average, although the prawn within was fresh and meaty, it was nothing special. The Deep Fried Prawn Fritter Rice Roll is unique, with a fresh prawn stuffed into fried dough fritters, then wrapped in rice rolls, and doused with light soy sauce. Very good.

I love the sauce in the Marinated Pork Bun, although the meat filling was quite little. The bun is a little too thick as well.

So how did this Imperial Treasure fare? I would say that it’s good, worth a try if you are staying in the east but I doubt I will be back again as the other branches offer slightly better tasting dishes (for the same menu) and has a much better ambience I felt. This branch was a little dark and the tables are badly placed I felt as there isn’t much walking space in between. Very cramp and distractive I felt. Interior decor doesn’t make you feel that it’s a plush restaurant too unlike the super peking duck branch. Despite all these discrepancies, the prices of the dishes remain the same as the more upmarket peking duck and fine chinese cuisine branches. So I would prefer to go to the latter branches instead. The waitress who served us though was good and friendly. Spent a total for $175 for the three dishes excluding the chicken (as it wasn’t fully cooked).

The Peking Duck was good as usual. Fantastic crispy duck skin with a light sauce. The dough skin was slightly thick though, but not really a deal breaker.

We ordered the Double Boiled Soup of the Day. It was double boiled carrot soup that day and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I love light soup boiled with good lean pork ribs. Some restaurants choose cheaper grades of pork ribs and the soup ends up being all murky with bits of fats floating on top. Not at Imperial Treasure though, the soup was clear, fragrant and really sweet.

Braised tofu with mushrooms and vegetables. The tofu was well-braised and very tasty. I like the smooth texture of the tofu which goes really well with the fresh mushrooms.

The steamed cod fish was fantastic! The cod fish was very fresh and soft, the black fungus was deliciously crunchy and I really love this yummy healthy dish.

The Spinach with 3 eggs was nice but not anything extraordinary.
