Imperial Treasure Windows of Hong Kong @ Triple One Somerset
Dinner @ Imperial Treasure Windows of Hong Kong, Triple One Somerset
After lunch, we wandered from Bugis to Orchard and eventually landing up at the newly refurbished Triple One Somerset, which used to be the head office for Singapore Power.
An interesting eating place, Imperial Treasure Windows of Hong Kong opened there that is reminiscent of Cafe de Coral 大家樂 in Hong Kong. And of course we had to try how good it was.
My order was a 双拼套餐 for which I opted for roast pork and roast duck. The set meal came with a bowl of rice, a soup, chinese tea and a plate of blanched iceberg lettuce.
At 9 bucks, the portion was rather substantial. The roast pork belly was really nice but the duck could have been better, honestly. Perhaps its because we got the back cut which had little meat. Should have asked for duck breast or the drumstick instead.
例汤 aka soup of the day, that came with the roast pork set meal. I simply love Cantonese 煲汤, the down-to-earth flavours and aroma. Its old cucumber with spare ribs and dried octopus 老黄瓜排骨墨鱼汤. The soup was tasted good with the addition of 南北杏 and dried octopus.
Blanched iceberg lettuce drizzled with oyster sauce. Couldn’t complain much 🙂
J’s dinner – 猪排炬饭, Portuguese-styled pork cutlet baked rice. This dish is has its roots from Macau. The portion was huge with a lot of rice. The cutlet was quite generous, topped with lots of onions.
We ordered a “fried bihun with bean sprouts, shredded pork and shiitake mushroom” to share.
I love how the fried vermicelli is done! Could literally taste the “wok hei” 锅气 with every bite. The bee hoon was smooth but not too oily. Condiments was quite nicely balanced too.

Overall a very nice dining experience at this place. A good eating option if we happen to be in the area. 🙂
