Dinner Set Meal at Tai Thong Imperial Palace Restaurant (Bandar Puchong Jaya)

Tai Thong is having a set lunch and dinner promotion at all it's Chinese restaurants this April (which means there isn't much time left!). There are sets for 10 pax (RM98.00++), 6 pax (RM69.80++) and 4 pax (RM49.80++) which means you can get a decent meal in a Tai Thong restaurant for slightly more than RM10 per person.

2 weeks back my family and I tried out the new Tai Thong restaurant in Bandar Puchong Jaya. As there were 10 of us the 10 pax meal was a very suitable option. As far as I'm aware, each Tai Thong restaurant serves a different set menu.

The 10 pax menu consists of a soup, six dishes and a desert which makes it a grand total of 8 dishes. I had always thought of Tai Thong restaurants as being quite overrated so I was pleasently surprised by how good the food served to us that day was.

Dried vegetable soup. This soup wasn't that great. Perhaps they didn't boil it long enough.

Decent 'char siew' and 'siu yok'. 'Siu yok' may look quite cheap but it's anything but.

Seafood Asam with lots of fish and some sotong. Very flavourful but not really the way I like it. IMHO they used too much santan. When eating asam dishes I want them sour and spicy. Not too fond of the fragrant santan taste.

Mushrooms with bean curd and broccoli. One of those dishes which I look forward to in any Chinese wedding.

Deep fried tofu. Wow... I really loved this one. Eat it fresh from the kitchen. Dip it in mayonnaise and bite in. Feel the warm and soft tofu texture and enjoy the taste.

Sweet and sour fried lotus roots. Somehow or other my family members did not like this dish but I appreciated the crispy and crunchy texture of the lotus roots. Who would have thought they can be made sweet and sour style?

Claypot chicken with yam. Quite nice as well.

The desert. Longan and sea coconut drink.

Note: Tai Thong is also having an irresistable dim sum promotion where everything goes for RM1.98++ each. It's only available on Saturday mornings though. I tried it 2 weeks ago in the Kepong branch and it was not bad. I'll be in MidValley this Saturday for the dim sum promotion.
