Imperial Pot, Publika, Solaris Dutamas Food Review

I was so looking forward to try the Charcoal Grilled Skin Prawn Dumpling "Har Kau" because I find the concept of a dim sum charcoal dish interesting and was wondering does it taste good. The day finally arrived but unfortunately, they ran out of that and I couldn't get to find out how it taste like. :(

Anyway, there were a few dishes of dim sum that I tried out.
Started off with some Tea Pot Soup.
This was one out of 3 varieties of Tea Pot Soup that we tried.
Which are Ginseng Chicken, White Raddish with Spare Ribs and Nutritious Herbal Pork. Personally, I find all of the soup really strong in one type of taste which will not get me past more than one cup. If it were soup with some ingredients for me to munch on so as not to come on me too strong, I'd probably be able to drink more but just drinking the soup alone feels that it chokes my throat and immediately left me wanting some water to soothe me. Each pot is RM12.80.

This is the Unagi Puff in BBQ Sauce:
Too dry for my taste. Only thing I like here is the seaweed that keeps it together. True story.

Steamed Bak Kut Teh Soup Dumpling:
Didn't taste like Bak Kut Teh to me. Can't really taste much of what I ate but I know that pointy thing that's sticking out is hard as hell. I believe it's some kind of pork inside?

Here's one charcoal type of dish that I get to try here. It's called the Egg Custard Bun in Charcoal Grilled Skin:
The filling of the bun is egg yolk and custard.
Could taste just a bit of the custard but a lot of the egg yolk. I find the filling insufficient with the bun ratio. But then again, just tasting egg yolk with the charcoal bun isn't exactly my idea of good taste.

Enoki Mushroom Wrapped in Bacon:
Finally, something that taste nice to me. Must be due to me loving bacon lots. Costs RM7.80.

This is Deep Fried Avocado Roll with Crispy Silk Wrap (RM8.80):
I just like the crispy outer layer. After that, I need some sauce to make it nicer.

Fresh Prawns in Organic Red Rice Roll (RM8.80):
Surprisingly, for a person like me who don't like prawns, this taste okay to me. Just okay.

Imperial Pot is close on Mondays and operates from 9:30am till 9:30pm every other day.
