An occasion for family to get together and feast! Have you decided what to have for reunion dinner?

If you wish to enjoy the renowned Peking Duck that placed Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck Restaurant at 49th in Asia's 50 Best Restaurants in 2013, it is highly recommended to call and reserve a table and the Peking Duck about 3 days in advance. continue reading

Currently ranked 49th in Asia, we decided to revisit Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck as we realised it was more than a year ago since our last dining there. Named after their signature dish, the Peking Duck, can this superlative Chinese specialist continue to wow us?Peking Duck (S$68/++)It is highly advised to make reservations when visiting the restaurant on the weekends, especially if you are after their dim sum during lunch. As we called to make reservation, the lady politely asked if we wanted the Peking Duck for our meal as advance order of the bird is required if you want to guarantee its spot on the dining table.We enjoyed the crispy thin layer of roasted duck skin that complemented the tender, juicy duck meat. All diners at the table were individually portioned a slice of the roasted duck skin which was supposed to be dabbed with sugar and you could literally hear the crunch of that crisp skin being munched!My complaint was that the steamed pancakes was served at room temperature and was curled up on the sides which had hardened. It was also slightly too thick for our liking but apart from that, we felt that the roasted Peking Duck was cooked to perfection.Braised ee-fu noodles with remnants of the roast duck - S$10/++During our last visit, we requested for the remnants of the duck to be served to the table and on this occasion, we requested for it to be used for another dish to share. While the noodles was cooked to al dente and beautifully braised, we surely were not served the full remnants of the roast duck.Egg tarts - plate of three (S$3.30/++)The puff pastry to the egg tart was rich in butter and had a beautiful fragrance to it. It was not overly satiating despite the buttery and flaky pastry base and was surely one of the better egg tarts tried. Arguably, we thought that the taste of the custard egg filling could be stronger.BBQ pork bun - plate of three (S$4.20/++)Coated with a mildly sweet layer of crust, it lacked the crispness found in Tim Ho Wan as it was slightly limp. We enjoyed the beautifully roasted char siew on the inside which carried a tinge of fragrance from Chinese rose wine. It brought back fond memories of our visit at Dim Sum Square in Hong Kong.BBQ pork pastry - plate of three (S$4.20/++)This was surely one of the top BBQ pork pastries tried. Every element of it was executed well, from the fragrant and buttery puff pastry to the roasted char siew on the inside (which was the same filling as that of the BBQ pork bun).BBQ pork rice roll (S$5.50/++)It was hard for this dish to be a miss when the core ingredient, the BBQ pork (char siew) was such a hit in the two dishes above. The rice roll was thin, not overly starchy and the savoury soy sauce nicely complemented it to suit our palate. Another classic dim sum dish well prepared.Pan-fried carrot cake (S$4.20/++)Yet another classic dim sum that is a must-have on each dining table. The pan-fried carrot cake nailed all the basics, good seasoning of the radish and a nice layer of crispness on the surface which complemented the soft radish.Coconut tart (S$3.30/++)Personally, I always find that coconut tarts belong to a special category of food where it has an acquired taste among foodies. I never thought of trying it till my days of living in Hong Kong led me to try it one day and since then, I fell in love with it and is in search for the best one in Singapore since it is not a common pastry even among the Chinese dim sum restaurants. This coconut tart easily won me over with that crispy puff pastry and the freshness of the coconut which had a natural sweetness and fragrance to match. It was good enough for me to request a second serving but it was sold out by then!Ha Kau - Prawn dumpling - (S$5/++)We enjoyed that the skin of the prawn dumpling was thin and not excessively starchy but serving dumplings with torn skin was hardly acceptable. The prawns used were fresh with a natural sweetness and had a nice crunch and it was really a shame that the wrapping workmanship let the dish down. Apart from that, in all fairness, it won us over in terms of its savoury taste and flavours.Siew Mai - Pork dumplings - (S$4.80/++)A classic dim sum cooked well. Expect to enjoy the savouriness from the juicy pork dumpling carefully sized to suit a mouthful.Steamed custard bun (S$4.20)No prizes for guessing this to be the most popular dish since we ordered three servings of it! The skin of the bun wrapping the filling was soft but too thick for our liking. However, the sweetness of the salted egg yolk custard bun suited our palate perfectly and what we enjoyed was that while it was runny, it maintained viscosity and it was more of a case of generous filling. No complaints and another round, please.Glutinous rice with chicken (S$4/++)We enjoyed the soft glutinous rice that was sticky and fragrant. Unwrapping the lotus leaf that imparts the fragrance to the rice, expect to dig into the savouriness of the diced chicken and Chinese mushrooms!Coconut cake (S$3.30/++)Just when we were expecting the desserts to be as good as the dim sum mains, we were left largely disappointed with this coconut cake. Served chill, it was too 'curdy' and while it had a strong coconut fragrance, it lacked the refreshing taste and freshness, and tasted artificial.Sago cream with mango (S$5/++)This traditional Chinese dessert is usually on my must-try list and undoubtedly so on this occasion despite our exploding stomach by now. Depending on individual, this had a rich, creamy and strong taste of mango being blended together with drapes of pomelo sparingly in each bowl. I personally prefer to have more texture so I would enjoy tasting the mango fruit itself rather than being blended. That being said, this was a good and refreshing rendition but of the two bowls ordered, the ingredients served in each bowl had a large discrepancy as one of the bowls barely had strands of the pomelo while the other had large chunks of it. Glutinous ball with sesame (S$1++/each)Just when we thought that we were about to conclude our meal with a disappointing offer of desserts, this surprised us pleasantly! Coated with roasted crushed nuts, the soft and thin layer of glutinous ball packed a generous amount of sesame filling that had the desired level of sweetness (even our mum agreed that it was good!). The nice complementing layers of textures surely sealed the dessert for us, not to mention that it was sized perfectly for a mouthful pop!The restaurant has a few types of seating to suit the respective occasions. There are the usual private rooms for a more exclusive and intimate dining or even the partitioned rooms which individually boasts of a different theme and style. There is also the casual and more traditional open space dining like you would expect in a Chinese restaurant. Lastly, there is even a champagne lounge with comfortable sofa seats at the front of the restaurant, along the corridors of Paragon Shopping Mall for a more relaxed setting.Apart from being a suitable venue to bring your family out for a satisfying lunch on a Sunday, it is surely a presentable restaurant to invite your business associates and partners over with its range of premium wines on offer.We also received very dedicated customer service and if you are after a no-frills, calories-worthy meal of traditional dim sum, this is surely one of our top recommendations in Singapore so far! My only complaint was that the dishes were served almost simultaneously and really quick. I would have preferred it better if the service was staggered to allow diners to enjoy each dish as they arrive. Nonetheless, it was a very enjoyable dining experience and if you are planning to visit, do note that reservations are highly recommended!Due to limitations in photo uploads, please visit us at http://www.makeyourcaloriescount.com/2013/12/sg-imperial-treasure-super-peking-duck.html for complete review. continue reading

Elder sister strike 4D and treat us to Imperial Treasure.We had their signature Peking Duck, crispy and shining duck skin, crunchy cucumber and aromatic leek pieces with a dash of sweet sauce then wrapped with soft and mellow tasting egg crepe, tongue tantalizing food.Spinach golden toufu is my 2nd favorite dish, with a thin layer of spinach puree covering the top of a golden silky toufu coated with velvety and savory sauces.The balance of the duck meat were use to fry a noodle, it’s fragrant and noodle was well cooked but abit bland for my liking, I added lots of green chili with my noodle. Ending the meal with a sweet and refreshing Hashima with red dates. continue reading

The FoodI ordered Siew Mai, Steamed Minced Pork Dumpling, BBQ Pork Rice Roll and XO Sauce NoodleThe Siew Mai is filled with fresh prawns making it very crunchy, juicy and the overall texture wholesome. The Steam Minced Pork Dumpling is very good, the soup is filled with the goodness from the minced pork. Every mouthful of the dumpling is simply statisfying. The BBQ Rice Roll is very smooth and silky and goes well with the sweet sauce but I find that it can be even better if the rice roll is even thinner and the BBQ Pork should be less fatty. The XO Sauce Noodle is basically Mee Pok with XO sauce. I must say that the texture of the Mee Pok was springy and it complement well with the XO sauce. This simple dish is pretty good but I find that you can do it yourself if you can find good Mee Pok and XO sauce.The PriceReasonably priced at $52.40 with fresh ingredients and pretty good qualityOverallI will definitely come back again and highly recommended to try this! continue reading

I was pretty impressed with Imperial treasure's xiao long bao. I did a little experiment with my wife, we wanted to see how much pressure applies by the chopstick will cause the xiao long bao to burst. As seen in the picture, I exerted quite a lot of pressure on the xiao long bao. However it did not burst. We thought the skin of the xiao long bao should be quite thick for it not to burst. But when we bite into it, the skin was not thick at all. We were really impressed with the skills of the Shi fu. continue reading
