This year, Dragon-i has come out with a special Prosperity Abalone Treasure Pot (盆菜). Treasure Pot is a popular dish during this festive season as it symbolizes the unity of family members. It is a feeling of love, joy and prosperity.

An authentic ‘Treasure pot’ must include at least a dozen of special ingredients which are believed to bring good luck, money and fortune. It has traditionally been held that eating treasure pots during this time will bring an auspicious start of a new year.

During the Chinese New Year season, every order of Treasure pot will include a plate of Lou Shang 捞生. The Lou Shang consists of Raw Salmon Fish Slices, Jelly Fish, Carrot Slices, crackers, seasoning, sweet and sour source.

One thing I like about the Treasure Pot is the broth. The broth has been cooked 3 – 4 hours with chicken and pork ribs until perfection. The rest of the top ingredients of the treasure pot are rich and luxurious that make people mouth-watering by the glance of it.

Xiao Long Bao RM10.30, per basket – Originating from Shanghai, China back in Qing Dynasty, the iconic Shanghainese xiao long bao means ‘little basket bun’ is well-known for its mouth-watering meat filling and piping hot soup encased in each little dumpling.

The pork knuckle tasted great with the sauce together and the ratio of fat and lean meat is just perfect.

Fried Glutinous Rice with Waxed Meat – RM48, the glutinous rice is cooked with 2 types of Chinese sausages, slices of mushrooms and topped with green veggie and slices of pan-fried eggs.

Overall the dishes here are delightful. The presentation of the food is nice and the service here is up to standard. With this kind of ambiance and quality of food it is reasonable to have the price that is slightly on the higher side.

  2. Nice post on the Dragon-i promotion. I didn’t try it though because the price is a bit too steep. Nevertheless, I went there for lunch with my family on the 3rd day of Chinese New Year (Sunday) in Ipoh. The place design is definitely not as nice and unique as the one I see in your blog post. Anyway, Happy Chinese New Year!! Great post for this one! The images of the food makes me regret on not trying it out with my family.
