49. Imperial Treasurehave been to other outlets but not the one at Paragon and have not tried their Peking Duck, will consider…

Not surprising to see that most restaurants are from Japan, Hong Kong (China) and Singapore. But as I’ve mentioned before, I felt that the pricing of degustation menu in Singapore is slightly higher than other countries in the region, perhaps disadvantaged by the need to import and air freight, fresh ingredients from the source countries.
