Imperial Treasure Nan Bei, Ngee Ann City

Warning: Tidak Ditanggung Halal

Getting over my Facebook Photo Album, I found that there's still some food that I haven't post yet for my trip to Singapore way back in May. So the next day after my uninvited visit to Nuffnang office, my brother-in-law brought us to eat dim sum in Imperial Treasuer Nan Bei, Ngee Ann City.

A typical yum cha set up.

Ruth can't wait to eat.

This restaurant is in a shopping center and part of it is not covered by wall. Boss Ming passed by here and saw me. We say hi and he went on his way.

Ruth choosing her favourite dim sum.

What's nice is that the staff that took our order can speak Cantonese, hence easy for us to order because some of the dim sum if spoken in Mandarin just feel weird. For me lah.

A long list of our orders:

Xiao Lung Bao, Wo Tip, Gun Dong Gao (Shark Fin dumpling in soup), Crystal Prawn Dumpling, and Char Siu Bao (BBQ Pork Steam Bun)

Scallop Chee Cheong Fun, Beef Meatball with Vegetable, Scallop and Spinach Dumpling, Tied Chicken Meat with 4 Treasure, Fried Salad Prawn Puff, Custard Salty Egg Yolk Bun, and Kuih Lapis

Fresh Prawn Wantan Mee, Century Egg and Lean Pork Poriddge, and Scholar Poriddge (Pork Liver Poriddge)

Well, words alone is hard to describe. Let us move on with the picture of the food.

Century Egg and Lean Pork Porridge

The texture is to my liking. Smooth and soft. You don't get the rice like feeling, that's how I like my porridge. Unless we're talking about Teo Chew style porridge. Cantonese style porridge should be like this.

Fresh Scallop Chee Cheong Fun

Just by looking at it you know it's delicious.

Fresh Prawn Wanten Mee

I recommending this for those of you who happen to come here. This is the nearest one can find that taste exactly like wantan mee you find in Hong Kong.

Fresh Prawn Dumpling

The litmus test of a dim sum restaurant. I'll say they passed with flying colours.

Gun Dong Gao

Fills with dried scallop, fish maw, and shark fins. Lovely.

Char Siu Bao

Up to the standard. For someone that doesn't normally eat Char Siu Bao like me.

Custard with Salty Egg Yolk Bun

Picture worth a thousand words.

Scallop Spinach Dumpling

Spinach is one of my favourite vegetable. Nice.

Beef Meatball with Vegetable

Tied Chicken Meat with 4 Treasures

Not too bad.

Thousands Layer Cake

My mum's favourite.

"I want more"

My sis, me and my mum. Do we look alike?

Poor Noah scratched is forehead the other night.

Okay, time for some dessert.

Lychee and Almond Jelly


Red Bean Soup


Yong Chi Gum Loh

Hong Kong proud import.

Overall Rating: 4/5

Lastly, the picture of my brother-in-law and his children Ruth and Noah.
