Imperial Treasure Noodle & Congee House (ION)

i had my dim sum lunch @ Imperial Treasure (ION Orchard) on the eve of CNY.. it was very crowded.. the patient queue of people lining outside the restaurant is such a common sight already.. first of all.. i'd like to compliment the staff for their ultra-good service and politeness.. this is, thus far, the most applaudable customer service of a dim sum restaurant i've encountered.. not only they were very courteous.. the staff were super efficient.. the food were served piping hot in less than 10 minutes.. they were observant to the tables of customers.. cleared the plates and refilled the tea readily..

okay.. now let's go on to the food~~

Century Egg with Pork Congee

Smooth congee with lotsa ingredients! the pork was well marinated.. could taste the sweetness of the meat and it was still tender.. good! the congee is different from that of Crystal Jade's.. this is at least a level better than CJ's.. i find CJ's congee too diluted.. and recently has became less tastier.. Imperial Treasure's congee is more fragrant and more worth the price.. (^O^)

Har Kau

the skin was not dry but it was slightly thicker than i expected.. but still acceptable.. the prawn was very Q.. springy and tasty BUT because of the thick skin.. the prawn's juiciness diminished alot.. nonetheless it's better than CJ's..

Siew Mai

well done! it's on par with CJ's Dining IN but i still prefer Old Hong Kong's Siew Mai.. the taste of the pork, prawn and mushroom blended nicely.. its really tender and juice spurts out when u bite it~ (>_<) sweet...

Yam Puff

i don't like this dish.. nothing against the restaurant.. just that Yam Puff was never on my dim sum list of faves.. i like yam!! but when it's mixed with mushroom and what's inside?! idk.. the taste that turns out from the whole combi really doesn't appeal to me.. so i gave mine to my mom.. haha~~

Deep-fried Prawn in Beancurd Skin

ahhhh~~ this is good!! good !! good! i wanna eat this again.. the outer is suuuuuuuper crispy! the prawns were springy and tasty! pls note that the beancurd was salty already so u don't need to dip the soy sauce provided..

Pan-fried Carrot Cake

disappointed! CJ's Dining IN and Old HK are the two places that serve the better carrot cakes.. this one is not fragrant! dry and bland.. sadzzzz..

Shrimp Rice Roll

the rice roll was too thick! another disappointed dish..

Char Siew Bao

wah! i was surprised.. not only they were generous with the char siew.. the char siew was very tasty and fragrant.. the bao was soft and fluffy.. though it was left on the table very long but it was still springy.. good!

Steam Custard Bun

MUST-EAT!!! this is much much better than CJ's!! omg.. i was shocked when the hot custard oozed out.. the fragrance just spreads through your mouth every bite u take.. this is very very good!!

Souffle Egg White Ball with Red Bean

MUST-TRY! i like this.. i can finish all 3! LOL~~ it's very nice.. the outer is fried egg white sprinkled with icing sugar.. it wasn't too sweet coz the red bean inside blended in just nice.. it's not all mushed up! u can still savour the soft red beans..

definitely i'll be going back again! hahaaa~~
