For the usual price of $8.65 for 12 dumplings, the set was a steal for a bowl of 12 dumplings, a side (cold mixed cucumber/Konjac) and drink. You can choose the filling of the dumplings (beef cabbage, chives with prawn and egg, black pepper beef etc). The skin of dumpling had a bite to it without being too thick. Oh, I just loved how soft the egg and chives were with the crunchy prawn as the filling. The sour spicy soup broth just tasted like mala soup with an addictive kick to it. The side of cold mixed Konjac was pretty refreshing with the mala spices. As for the noodles, it tasted alright but it was a little frustrating at the beginning when the al dente noodles was all clumped together, making it hard to toss well with the chilli oil and scallions. Overall, it felt like comfort food meant for rainy days:)

With or without the noodles, the price tag of this set remains the same. The number of decently sized yong tau foo pieces (beancurd, bitter gourd, mushroom, fish and pork balls, fried wanton and wuxiang) is totally dependent on your luck as it can hover between 6 to 8 of them. The springy noodles were tossed in pork lard and topped with minced pork. So yum! Definitely missed this old school taste/ 古早味!
According to my mom, you might be delighted to find dried oyster wrapped with meat if you were to join the morning crowd!

Quite a decent bowl of sliced fish soup in an air con restaurant tucked in the quiet corner of Outram campus. Nice that the sliced fish did not exude any fishy smell though the slices were way too thin for my liking. The soup tasted comforting too and it was a huge relief to not feel thirsty after gulping down the whole bowl. Haha please do not be mistaken, the reason why there was not a single drop of soup left was because the amount of thick bee hoon was sadly little and hence I was trying my best to fill up my sad stomach with some soup. Taste wise, the soup was just normal, nevertheless comforting:)

The image of these huge chunky, thick slices of fresh grouper kept appearing in my dad’s head and that’s why I had the chance to find out this gem. The catch was so fresh that one could literally tear off layer by layer of the flesh while savouring the taste of the ocean in each slice of grouper. In order to hero the catch, the soup was lightly yet adequately seasoned to bring out the freshness of Teochew styled dish. One could ask for thin or thick bee hoon, mee sua or even rice to go with it. Definitely a good meal on a rainy day:)

A satisfying hearty soup after a good work out on a cold rainy day! :) Being filled to the brim of the bowl were fresh perfectly cooked pork liver, pork slices, pork belly slices, tofu, meatballs, and additional pork kidney and intestines which would otherwise be missing in the $4.20 portion. The incorporation of salted vegetable was wise as it lightened the overall taste of the soup! Definitely a gratifying meal as it warmed up not only the tum, but also the soul on a cold day:)

I had my first try of this delish at this chain outlet and there and then, my heart was stolen. Maybe because it cant be found in any other Chinese restaurants, JEM imperial treasure is where I will go to whenever I have a craving for this unique fried rice delish.
Unlike other muifan, this dish had its rice fried and the amount of wok hey in it was just mind-blowing. Drizzled over that wok hey masterpiece was a silky sauce of dried scallops, kailan stem, wild mushrooms, tender chicken and crunchy prawns. With such a silky texture and amazing flavours, it was almost impossible to pause in between mouthfuls.
This delish (small sized) can easily fill up four bowls, hence probably enough for a person with a huge Hokkien Fried Rice craving to satisfy, or two small eaters. Definitely a comfort food on rainy days too:)

Good fix in CBD area to expel internal heat after too much deli fried food😊 Just awesome that they could do magic with the soup, without the addition of MSG!
Loved how generous they were with the lotus root though the amount of pork ribs served was limited:(
Brown rice with a sprinkle of furikake was pricey at $2 per serving too.

The broth tasted normal but the prawns were really fresh. I guess any warm food would taste heavenly and be comforting to the soul on a sad rainy afternoon.
