Imperial Treasure Nan Bei Restaurant @ Suntec City

28 JUN 2009

After a not so satisfying dim sum session yesterday, Wifey jumped at the thought of my random suggestion of having another dim sumsession today when we walked passed Imperial Treasure Nan Bei Restaurant whilst hunting for our next meal… I was like… “Huh?! dim sum a.g.a.i.n….?! Seriously!??” Oh well, whatever that keeps Wifey happy!

First impression, Imperial Treasure, though not as elegant and spacious as Asia Grand, was pretty packed… and is very well staffed… Going through their extensive dim sum menu revealed a combination of Canton & ShangHai delights… Based on what’s listed on their regular menu, it seems like the kitchen of Imperial Treasure also serves many Canton dishes which brought a sparkle to Wifey’s eyes (several of which are Wifey’s childhood favourites)… I already have a feeling we will be back…

The first dim sum served was the Shanghai Steamed Pork Dumpling (上海小龍包; $3.60)… Looked like any other steamed pork dumplings out there, it tasted a whole lot better… The skin of the dumpling was thin yet it held the tasty soup without breaking… Four pieces for a mere $3.60, it was great value, and a great start to the dim sum session!

Next came the Steamed Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf (珍珠糯米鸡; $3.80) served as a nicely wrapped duo. This was really quite fantastic and can probably be considered one of the better versions of Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf we came across…

Their Deep Fried Yam Puff (蜂巢炸芋角; $3.30) looked slightly smaller in comparison to what we get from the other establishments… but they were very crispy and tasted probably as good as any fried yam puffs out there…

Well, I can’t say I like the Steamed Beef Ball with Vegetable(时菜牛肉球; $3.00), but it’s been a long time favourite of Wifey… She even commented that the Beef Balls here were exceptional… Fresh, juicy and bursting with flavours, specially with the special sauce that came with the dish.

Next up, the Pan Fried Pork Dumpling (鮮肉鍋貼; $3.30) here is pretty decent… probably as good as most pan fried pork dumpling out there if not better… The slightly crisped base, tasty minced pork, thin chewy skin, encompassed all the key characteristic of a good Pan Fried Pork Dumpling without it being too oily… Excellent!

Our order of Deep Fried Scallion Pastry(葱油香餅; $2.80) was left out of our initial order, but it was quickly rectified when we brought it up up to the attentive manager… It was fast-tracked… and served within record time! A nice save.However, although the Scallion Pastry here was all right, I felt that we definitely had better Scallion Pastry at Crystal Jade…

Inclusive of the 2x Chinese Tea ($1.00 each) and 2x Wet Towel ($0.30 each), the total bill came up to $26.36 with 10% service charge and 7% GST… Compared to what we had yesterday, it was generally better, yet cheaper… For that, we will definitely be back for more dim sum, or dinner! A last note as seen on the ordering chit: all dim sum are available daily till 6:00 pm or while stock last!!

 

My Final Rating: 8/10

Address:
3 Temasek Boulevard #B1-11, Suntec City, Singapore
