Imperial Treasure Noodle & Congee House, 100AM

First time dim sum-ing down at Imperial Treasure Noodle & Congee House (#02-10/11, 100AM, 100 Tras Street, tel : +65 6543 6668). We've been to the one at ION quite a number of times and the food had never been disappointing as far as I can remember. 

pan fried radish cake
har gow
rice rolls stuffed with roasted duck
dumpling soup...
...which they said didn't contain coriander but actually did!
deep fried intestines
frog porridge with century egg
This branch wasn't too bad. There were some items on the menu that I've never noticed. One of them were the rice rolls with stuffed with chunks of roasted duck - I rather liked that. The deep fried intestines here tasted "meatier" than those we had in the past and this shop at 100AM doesn't do barbecued chicken livers. Tried their frog porridge for the first time - those slurp-off-the-bone-tender frogs, we were informed, had been slain only upon order. So any fresher we'd have to eat them live.

They screwed up with the ordering twice. We are normally very easy going with such things but I thought I would mention since this were outward fuck ups over what could have been non-issues. We ordered the dumpling soups after confirming with the staff that there wouldn't be any coriander and those dumplings in the end did have coriander. Ditto with the frog porridge which we had done the same for regarding ginger and the same screw up happened. Service recovery was quick, we did ultimately enjoy the food so we didn't hang anyone.
