This was a quick dinner before catching Alice In Wonderland 3D at Lido Cineplex.
Rick and I are both HUGE fans of Imperial Treasure’s roast meats, especially their roast pork. See how beautifully golden the crackling is! It’s evenly crisp and light, just sublime. The char siew is succulent, has good bite, and isn’t too sweet.
On a previous visit, we tried the roast duck and it was superb too.
Rick LOVES pork liver, but I’m squeamish about cooking it at home, so he has to get his fix outside. 🙂
Having not gotten over the disappointment of Noodle Place’s shrimp wanton noodle, I was curious to see how Imperial Treasure’s version would measure up.
Here, they haven’t got a wanton+shrimp dumpling combo, so I settled for just shrimp wanton.
Imperial Treasure’s shrimp wantons definitely trumps Noodle Place’s! Here, the shrimps are uber fat, fresh, crunchy, and sweet. Very shiok!
But for the noodles, I think Noodle Place’s is thinner and has a nicer mouth-feel. Also, I prefer yellow chives which is more authentically Hong Kong-style, rather than spring onion.
As for the soup base, both are about the same.
So it seems the score is even. But if I had to choose, it would be Imperial Treasure for me, cos it’s more about the shrimp wantons rather than the noodles.
Note: This place fills up quickly. Queues are expected at peak hours and weekends, and seating is cramped in the inner section. But we’ve been here a couple of times, and have been satisfied thus far with their consistent food quality and efficient wait staff.
Total bill for 2 – including beverages, wet towel, 10% service charge + 7%GST – was S$41.80.
