When my foodie friends Angeline and Milly asked me where I would like to have my birthday dinner this year, “Imperial Treasure Fine Teochew Cuisine” was the first place that popped into my head. I figured it would be nice for us to have a Chinese meal together for a change.
The food at this 1-MICHELIN Star restaurant was as expected, very good. We started with the pig’s trotter jelly, a classic Teochew delicacy which is done superbly here, followed by can’t-go-wrong roasted pork belly. Individual servings of a thick, silky collagen-rich soup arrived next, followed by these dishes to share: deepfried whitebait, sautéed beef cubes with garlic chips and a very tasty oyster pancake. We then slurped on a serving each of braised vegetable and mushroom in superior broth. To round off, Milly ordered two kinds of carbs. One was a long-time favourite of mine - the “wok hei-full” hor fun with diced kailan and preserved radish, while the other was a lusciously decadent “mee pok” with fresh lobster.
I chose warm almond cream for my dessert and it was pleasing for sure, but on my next visit, I’m going to get the orh nee (yam) with almond cream because they form a really well-balanced combo.
It has to be said though that the best thing about the evening was the company.
