Eating Out: Treasure

One from the archives this time. Not many words, mostly pictures. This is because:

a) I can’t remember the names for everything

b) I don’t know the  price of anything

c) These dishes are the usual suspects when the family and I go out for yum cha

The mini hot dogs usually come out on the first trolley. Dad, my cousins and I like to share a plate to get started. The bread is sweet and sticky.

We usually go to Treasure as the food is always good, and Dad says the chicken feet here are the best. He will eat 6 baskets on his own if you let him. However our latest trip there, we found it wasn’t as good, and the prices had gone up! Will see next time if it’s back to normal standards.

My favourite is the siu mai (the one with the orange dot in the middle), with pork and prawn filling. I have loved these for as long as I can remember. The table looks surprisingly clean here. Usually it’s covered in random sauce drippings from everyone helping themselves.

More random yummies.

We don’t always get char siu pow, but on this occasion we did. Just looking at the photo makes me want one.

We ALWAYS get dessert though!

Clockwise from top left: coconut jelly (my favourite), egg tarts, the bill after we had eaten everything, and 2 colour jelly which my cousins and pull apart the layers to consume separately.

  1. have u tried taipan in doncaster? that one is pretty decent too.
    well at least i though it was decent (including all other yum cha places in melb for that matter) until i visited Tim Ho Wun (in Mong Kok, Hong kong) – cheapest michellin star restaurant. i swear i ate to my fullest and it cost much much much less than eating here… MICHELIN STAR!!!! it was awesome – the skin was paper thin but held together nicely, the meat was subtly savoury, and the like is super super epic.gee i might as well write a post on this … better dig up photos from my holiday

    It’s been so long since I’ve been to yum cha! Last time I went, I remember getting chicken feet (not a fan) and cold jellyfish salad (awesome).

    And it’s not yum cha unless you end with those egg tarts, right? :)

      haha, no chicken feet is about it. oh I guess he does like trotters and tripe too… i know he doesn’t do fish head though!

  7. Looks great, we just had similar at Gold Leaf Springvale, almost the sames dishes! It seemed a little better than I remember last time, may try this one next time. That table is definitely too clean. Ours was a disgrace! Thanks

      I must try the Springvale one. Went to the Burwood one just on the weekend! Yes, the table was way too clean! I can’t explain why!

  8. It’s pretty hard to record down all the prices and names of everything when you are dining in a such a large group! I’m surprised everyone had the patience to wait until you took photos before digging in!

    Great photos with the camera too. I’m starting to think there is something wrong with my camera, though it’s probably because I’m a poor photographer and I am only using it at night!

  11. I LOVE those sausage rolls, as they remind me of my childhood! I always eat them when I’m in Singapore, but haven’t seen them at yum cha. And haha I see 3 baskets of chicken feet. Usually Soy eats a whole serve herself cos I’m not a fan. And wu kok (the deep fried yam fritter) is one of my all-time faves!

    Yum cha rocks! I recently did a yum cha post and, like yours, was more of a photographic account than a detailed write up. But hey, sometimes photos say it all :)

  13. Treasure is the best!! My man’s family got us into it. My favourite is siu mai too :) And another one I can’t think of – the names often elude me too. I’m not a huge yum cha dessert fan, but i do love the sticky black sesame roll thing (if you know what I’m talking about).
    I have never tried chicken feet – they creep me out. Maybe one day :)

  17. I find it hard remembering all the names of the food I eat at yum cha too. nice photos as well. Have you ever tried the all you can eat chinese buffett restaurant in Burwood? it’s worth checking out. The food is fantastic

  18. Oh now I’m just going to have to have Yum Cha again soon…, cravings have started seeing all this. This spread looks amazing. Must have…..
