Oversea Imbi: A marvellous makeover, plus a masterful Mid-Autumn 2022 menu with mooncakes
August 2, 2022
After five decades of welcoming countless customers, Oversea Restaurant in Imbi now enters its next half-century with a major refurbishment, reinvigorated for a younger generation with elegant new private rooms.
While Oversea Imbi's ground floor remains comfortingly traditional, the interior of its upper levels has been renovated for a chic, modern ambiance. Warm wood tones embrace corridors lined with private rooms of various sizes, comfortably seating at least eight persons per room. These rooms are perfect for both casual and corporate gatherings.
Toss this magical mix of ingredients with fresh vegetables, olive oil, peanut sauce and plum sauce, then wrap it all together in pancakes to savour a burst of memorable flavours and textures. The succulent duck, crunchy lotus seeds and juicy vegetables, plus tangy, lively sauces, combine for an addictive bundle of bliss that we would happily order every year.
The Mid-Autumn Set Menu is complete with delicacies to delight - the Braised Assorted Dried Seafood Soup is brimming with hearty seafood for a thick, soulful soup.
Throughout this menu, Oversea maintains its reputation for thoughtful preparation of terrific produce - the Steamed Grouper Fish with Superior Soy Sauce is moist, firm and flaky, while the Braised Goose Webs with Mushrooms is tender and collagen-rich in a sumptuous sauce.
One of our favourite courses is the Sliced Roasted Pig Skin served with Buns, Stuffed Beancurd and Luncheon Meat - the layered ingredients work very tastily together, crafted for a crisp bite and full-bodied chew.
Stir-fried Sea Cucumber with Leeks marry the bounty of the sea with the harvest of the earth in harmonious, heartwarming fashion.
The Mid-Autumn Set Menu concludes on a satisfying note with smooth, slick Stir-Fried Noodles with Minced Meat, plus a nourishing Glutinous Rice Balls with Hot Ginger Soup.
