family went to have dimsum lunch at imperial treasure at taka on 23.8.2015.^^
we used to come here many times when children were younger. i was telling son i had not been here >2.5yrs, probably much longer than that. how do i know? well, i started blogging on mar2013, & i have not blogged about imperial treasure nanbei yet.
daughter ordered a beef brisket noodles. this was very good as it used similar belly cut with the collagen layer. very much better than the noodles restaurant or the brisket king. texture was excellent! the braise was a bit more beefy, c/w what a friend made for my homecooked dinner recently. i would prefer my friend’s briskets actually, but not a lot of difference that.
the chargrilled pork collar 炭烧猪项肉 was really good. we like it every time. i recently started to make char siew again, and i made a very good char siew both times. was trying to feel the taste, maybe can make some adjustment in my marinade.
har gao 虾饺 was good. but i didn’t think it was better than crystal jade or canton paradise. think crystal jade’s still better.
prawn fun cheong good too. smooth & good tasting light sauce.
son loved the radish pastry. still good as before.
spicy dumplings 抄手 was good. but still think crystal jade’s better.
steamed chicken feet very good. as good as any here or in hong kong.
same for the pork ribs. among the very best.
& the xiaolongbao 小笼包 – that’s the best of all! maybe better than crystal jade’s. very sweet broth inside. skin was thin, smooth & don’t break. daughter was telling us how it was made. the broth is small frozen block, then wrap inside then steam. smart girl!
we used to always order the fried yellow croaker 煎小黄鱼. it was S$7 then, now S$10. we all enjoyed it.
fried rice still good. and they still have the haebeehiam chilli. really good. now though i prefer the spicy seafood fried rice at crystal jade lamian xionglongbao a bit more.
salted egg custard bun was excellent! very good salted egg flavours. the best i think, much better than timhowan, crystal jade, canton paradise etc.
