Singapore’s “circuit breaker” measures have kicked in and dine in patrons are no longer allowed in restaurants, hawker centres, coffee shops and other F&B Outlets. #stayhomesg and #takeawaysg are trending. We tried the takeaway set meal of Treasures Yi Dian Xin by Imperial Treasures.
The famous Imperial Treasures Restaurant Group operates a chain of popular restaurants offering seafood, pecking duck, noodles, dim sum and more. Treasures Yi Dian Xin by Imperial Treasures is a casual dining concept with outlets in Changi Airport, Raffles City, Paragon and Parkway Parade. Currently only the latter two outlets remain open for takeaways.
Treasures Yi Dian Xin Takeaway Menu
Treasures Yi Dian Xin has a $12.80 Takeaway Set Meal. You get to choose a main dish of rice, noodles or congee. Poached vegetables and a dessert make up the set.

Yi Dian Xin Takeaway Set Meal
We went to Treasures Yi Dian Xin Parkway Parade to get the takeaway set meal for our dinner. Most of the items were sold out by the time I got there. I ordered the shrimp wanton noodles and shrimp dumpling noodles. I opted for the osmanthus jelly and salted egg yulk custard buns for desserts.
The process was simple and smooth – order and pay at the counter; and everything was ready and nicely packed to go within less than 15 minutes.
Yi Dian Xin takeaway set meals could look quite sumptuous if we had taken the trouble to do some basic plating. We were too lazy to wash up and just ate out of the plastic containers (I know, next time we shall be PC and bring our own environmentally friendly containers).
The Hong Kong style poached kailan was a simple healthy dish. The greens were fresh and slightly crunchy.
The noodles were nice no fuss dishes. They tasted as good at home as the noodles we had tried in Imperial Treasure restaurants; maybe the noodles were just a tad less springy.
We were also very happy with the dessert items. The charcoal bun filled with molten lava of salted egg yolk was especially delicious.
Good Affordable Takeout Meal
Notwithstanding the lack of tableware aesthetics, eating Yi Dian Xin Takeaway Set Meal at home was just as enjoyable as eating a meal at their restaurant. The food was of the same good quality. The portion was quite substantial. Two set meals could possibly be shared by 3 persons. We think Treasures Yi Dian Xin Takeaway Set Meal is a good affordable meal. A good #takeawaysg during #stayhomesg.
