There are very few places to go to when you want dim sum for dinner, and Imperial Treasure Nan Bei at Suntec is one of them (the other being Crystal Jade Kitchen at Holland Village). Tonight, we wanted just that, so we headed to one of our favourite weekday dinner choices.
We got the ubiquitous Steamed Pork Dumpling 'Siew Mai' ($4), this is always a safe reliable choice. Crunchy fresh prawns wrapped in a wanton skin and topped with diced mushrooms and a cubed salted egg yolk. I love salted egg egg with anything, it always adds that special something-something to a dish.
We also got the Steamed Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf ($3.80), soft and moist glutinous rice flavoured with minced chicken, mushrooms and conpoy.
The Steamed Diced Mushroom Dumpling ($3.80), crystal chewy dumplings filled with diced mushrooms and chives, this was earthy and so healthy (I like to think so!).
The Steamed BBQ Pork Bun ($3), fragrant buns that were soft and fluffy and filled with flavourful and juicy melt-in-your-mouth bbq pork.
We also got the Deepfried Beancurd Skin Roll with Shrimp ($4.20), crispy beancurd skin with succulent minced prawns and mushrooms for added texture.
We got a vegetable option, the Poached Seasonal Vegetable with Assorted Egg ($12), this was delicate and light, with the salted egg yolk lending a sandy yet creamy texture to the dish.
To fill us up, we got Ee-fu Noodles ($10.50), with sliced button mushrooms and chives. This is really one of my favourite variety of noodles, I could eat this everyday.
