Singapore - Dinner at Imperial Treasure Shanghai Cuisine

The Imperial Treasure Group just opened its latest outlet - a lush Shanghainese restaurant located right opposite the flagship

restaurant of its rival chain, Crystal Jade. Service here is, as with all its outlets, polished and very attentive.

What we tried:
- Smoked eggs: a Shanghainese classic, done very well here indeed, smoky-fragrant and with the yolks still molten.
- Shredded poached chicken with mungbean noodles, in a sesame paste dressing, topped with shredded cucumber.
- Steamed "xiao long bao": tasty but the soup contents of each dumpling seemed to have evaporated. Also, those were the ugliest XLB I'd ever seen in Singapore.
- Tofu ribbons with fresh soybeans and Jinhua ham: slightly on the salty side but remained a firm favourite of mine.
- Lion-head dumplings, another Shanghainese classic of giant minced pork meatballs. The version we ordered here were braised in a brown sauce with Napa cabbage. It was good, though not exceptional.
- Steamed buns to accompany the meatballs.

  1. I don't like this place, klyeoh. Too much salt in the cooking, even after we requested for less salt the last time I was there with DH (he's watching his diet very carefully these days). I wish Imperial Treasure can do a better job at such a good location.
