I noticed that the Famous Treasure Restaurant at Capitol Piazza has replaced the Four Season Duck when I walked around the mall late last year. Tried neither. I made a mental note and hoping I could find a time to try out as it looks good.
Months later, I have forgotten about them. But I got lucky, as my ex-colleague suggested Famous Treasure Restaurant for gathering.
Dishes We Tried At Famous Treasure Restaurant
When glancing the menu, it suggested Chinese food. After poring over it, I notice that it has a slant towards Cze Char food. Another modern Cze Char restaurant, other than Diamond Kitchen which I recently featured.
First dish that was served, Deep Fried Pork Belly with Fermented Bean Curd captivated all the diners’ heart. Well marinated with fermented bean curd and after deep frying, the crispiness retained even when the meat was left on the table for quite a while. Nothing less than thumb-up.
Surprisingly, Famous Treasure Restaurant is also fame for duck, the fatty Irish Duck was their signature. However, we chose the Peking Duck. A pity, the skin was not crispy enough and thick layer of fats was present. The consolation was meat remained tender and tasty.
Wok fried squid with cinchalok and lady’s fingers, subtle spicy with sourish flavour was appetising.
Even the ordinary-looking Stir-fried Mustard Vegetable in Claypot was crunchy and delicious.
Braised Fish Head was at the perfect seasoning level with lots of vegetable and beancurd skin. An excellent dish to accompany with white rice.
We ordered a Preserved Meat for Claypot Rice was tasty too. The way it was served was interesting. Instead of mixing the preserved meat into the rice, it was served separateyly.
Lastly, Stir-fried Kway Teow, pale in comparison to all the dishes we had so far. I would suggest to skip this dish.
No doubt, I will return to Famous Treasure Restaurant for other dishes.
