Imperial Treasure is a well-known chain of Chinese restaurants in Singapore. This is their flagship outlet, which specializes in fine-dining Cantonese cuisine. In the few times I’ve been here, I’ve always been impressed by the caliber and consistent standard of their cooking. In fact, I’d say what they serve here is as good as what [...]
