CANTONESE CUISINE at ORIENTAL TREASURE @ The Sphere, Bangsar South

Oriental Treasure is the latest addition (10th outlet) to the Oriental Group of Restaurants located snugly on Level 1 of The Sphere in Bangsar South. Like most of its sister restaurants, Oriental Treasure is set to satisfy your cravings for good dim sum, fine Chinese BBQ meats and the familiar creative Cantonese dishes from the kitchen of Executive Chef Justin Hor and his teams.

Checking out an Oriental restaurant when you are famished is always a good idea.  We started off with some irresistible appetisers – who can say “No” to Salted Eggyolk Fish Skin and Chilled Pig Stomach with Wasabi Sesame Sauce?  Crunchy with intense umami flavour, the fish skin pieces were just too addictive and the chewy-in-a-nice-way pig maw polished off within minutes!

Specially in just Oriental Treasure’s menu, new-wave hors-d’oeuvres, the Three Cones made an interesting entrance. Mini wafer cones hold diced cold seafood mixed with fruits, vegetables and mushrooms made very delightful bites for us!

The Fiery Baby Duck was a very firm favourite with us.  Exquisitely marinated, the tender duck was so skilfully executed that the thin crispy golden skin practically disintegrated on the tongue.

We tried a few dishes that went well with steamed white rice –

Codfish with Mushrooms on Stone Pit, Stir-fried Ying Yang Zucchini with Pork Neck and Deep Sea Garoupa Steamed with Clams.  All did not disappoint and these are popular items on the menu.

Still with seafood in mind?  The Freshwater Prawn cooked in aromatic Indonesian spices and fresh milk was perfect with some fried mantou.  Every drop of the tasty spicy gravy was mopped up!

Do try some of Oriental Treasure’s one-pot flavoursome steamed rice with several kinds of toppings.  These are perfect when you just want something light and comforting…

Don’t like rice? Why not have some noodles and one of their recommended noodles items is the Crystal Noodles with Eggplant.  Using simple but top quality ingredients, these noodles cooked Japanese style hit the spot with us.
