Imperial Treasure Teochew Ion Orchard is a Teochew restaurant at Orchard Road. It received one Michelin star in the 2018 Michelin Guide Singapore. It had been some time since our last visit to this Teochew restaurant, having been there when they first opened in December 2016. You can see more pictures of the restaurant in our post on our previous visit. We decided to go there for a simple Teochew lunch before the very busy CNY 2019 festive season kicked in.
The place looked very much the same as when we last visited. This time, we were seated in the internal dining area that has no windows. It felt more cosy but lacks the open spacious feel of the main dining area. It is probably the most attractive Teochew restaurant at Orchard Road.
Imperial Treasure Teochew Ion Orchard Menu
Here are pictures of some pages from the Imperial Treasure Ion menu. There is a lunchtime dim sum menu which contains mostly Cantonese dim sum items and some Teochew dim sum items.
Pork and Duck
We started our meal with an order each of the roasted pork ($14) and marinated sliced duck ($20). The roast pork was not bad in general but we would have preferred the skin to be less dry and hard. In contrast, the marinated duck was soft and juicy. The bean curd that comes with the duck almost stole the show from the duck. It was smooth and almost creamy to the touch. The light gravy enhanced the taste. Teochew diners will love this dish eaten with a dip into the garlic vinegar sauce.
Dumplings and Porridge
Those who like teochew porridge will love the congee with sliced pomfret ($16) at this Teochew restaurant in Orchard Road. The porridge was lightly flavoured and the thick slices of pomfret were white and clean-tasting. We ordered the siew mai ($6.20) as we thought it was the dim sum item most associated with Teochew cuisine. It was quite average.
Steamed Fish and Noodles
Steamed fish is a dish often associated with Teochew dining. On special occasions, the

Overall, it was an enjoyable lunch at the Imperial Treasure Teochew restaurant at Orchard Road. We had selected some classic Teochew dishes and they delivered very good and refined versions of them.
