Food Review: Imperial Pot @ Solaris Dutamas, Publika

Solaris Dutamas is already very well known for housing many great restaurants. Joining in the good food list with kitchen team from House of Tang, Bangsar would be the newly opened Imperial Pot, located at the far end of Publika building and facing the main road. At first, I was wondering why the dim sum place is named Imperial Pot since dim sum has nothing to do with pot. Later, I learned that their specialty is Tea Pot Soup.

There are 4 varieties of Tea Pot Soup: Black Chicken, Yok Chok Chicken, Ginseng Chicken and Nutritious Herbal Pork, all priced at RM 8.80 per tea pot. Soups were then poured into a small tea cup for consumption. I love the feeling it gave me as I felt like I’m drinking home boiled soup, so warm and nutritious! My favorite would be Yok Chok Chicken and Nutritious Herbal Pork as they taste sweeter and the herb smell isn’t too overwhelming.
Tea Pot Soup (Black Chicken) Price: RM 8.80
Enoki Mushroom Wrapped in Bacon Price: RM 6.80

I went gaga over this Enoki Mushroom Wrapped in Bacon cos they smell so aromatic once they were served, begging me to eat them! The salty smoked bacon tastes sinfully great when paired with crunchy enoki mushrooms. One more plate please!
Fresh Prawns in Organic Red Rice Roll Price: RM 8.80

Price: RM 8.80
A simple chee cheong fun can turn to something pretty with a hint of creativity. Imperial Pot made their Fresh Prawns in Organic Red Rice Roll with organic red rice, giving some color to the plain white ordinary ones. On the inside, the texture is made more interesting with fresh prawns and crunchy rice noodles.
Unagi Puff in BBQ Sauce
Price: RM 12.80
Unagi is my favorite Japanese food and I’m surprised they fusion fresh unagi in BBQ sauce with a crispy golden puff wrapped with seaweed. Sounds like a new type of pastry! 😀
Leopard Skin Prawn Dumpling Price: RM 6.80

Egg Custard Bun in Charcoal Grilled Skin
Price: RM 6.80

Egg Custard Bun in Charcoal Grilled Skin is one of my favorite dishes. Instead of the plain white bun, it’s charcoal grilled for a healthier option. The custard is very runny, just look at the photo below:

Price: RM 5.80
These are just too cute to be eaten! Nevertheless, we still tasted it. The buns were soft but unfortunately the custard is a bit drier than Egg Custard Bun so I prefer the latter more.

Look! The Salted Egg Prawns are doing a standing ovation! Seriously, salted egg goes well with anything so I have no complain for this dish. Thumbs up!

End a perfect dim sum session with a sweet note. For Western style, Nescafe Coffee Pudding won my heart with its rich coffee taste and smooth texture. I took the risk to taste it, although I know that I might get insomnia later because it’s too irresistible! For something Chinese, opt for the Tau Foo Fah instead 🙂
