I felt like having Cantonese soup today and the BF felt like having char siew bao, so we headed straight for Imperial Treasure after our run to Suntec.
I got 2 different types of soups, the Sweet Corn Soup with Crabmeat ($7), a gooey but lovely soup with the sweetness of crab and wholesome goodness of corn. The BF got addicted to this and promptly ordered another bowl.
The other soup was the Beancurd Thick Soup with Seafood ($7), a delicate soup chock full of diced melon, beancurd, prawns and scallops and laced with luscious egg-drops.
The BF got his Steamed BBQ Pork Buns ($3), that were soft and fluffy and filled with sweet, sticky and smoky bbq pork.
We also ordered Wantons in Hot Chili Sauce ($4.20), pork and vegetable wantons doused in a tangy vinegar and chili oil-infused sauce.
Instead of the usual chicken and mushroom congee, we decidedly ordered something different, the Fresh Scallops Congee ($9.50). I love how the light and clear flavour of the porridge complements the delicate succulent scallops. The waitress forgot to hold off the spring onions like we instructed so the BF promptly got to work painstakingly removing all of the spring onions.
We also ordered another dim sum, the Steamed Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf ($3.80), soft and moist glutinous rice packed with flavourful minced chicken, mushrooms and conpoy.
