RM1.98 Dim Sum at Tai Thong Restaurants

While blogging about Tai Thong's Set Dinner some time back I also mentioned about their Dim Sum Promotion whereby (almost) every item retails for RM1.98 each. I think I also mentioned that their promotion only lasted until the end of April... turns out the promotion ends in May. As the dim sum promotion is only available on Saturdays this Saturday will be your last chance to enjoy some cheap dim sum.

So far I've had dim sum in two Tai Thong outlets; one in Midvalley and one in Kepong. The pictures here were taken during my visit to their Kepong branch. The Midvalley branch is seriously inept in handling crowds and their selection is many degrees of poor. No chee cheong fun, no egg tarts, no this, no that... The Kepong branch on the other hand has much better selection. All the usual suspects are available but it's obvious that the more expensive items are served in moderation. Service at the Kepong branch is also leap years ahead of the Midvalley branch but be warned. It is nowhere near satisfactory.

The dim sum cart. For those who don't know... dim sum carts usually come along with their very own stove and steamer so that the dim sum on the carts remain warm. The big problem with dim sum carts in Tai Thong is that there's only ONE of them. Expect big waits for most food items.

Loh Mai Kai (Chicken with Glutinous Rice) and Char Siew Bau (BBQ Pork Buns).

An assortment of dim sum. Like I said; the usual suspects. Their dim sum is passable. Nothing great but definitely much better than those establishments along Jalan Ipoh.

Prawn Chee Cheong Fun.

The following dessert items are NOT RM1.98 each. In fact they cost a fair bit more. RM4.50 each if I'm not mistaken. Not worth the money but they looked so tempting :)

Mango Pudding.

Gwai Ling Guo (Herbal Jelly).

Marco Polo in Wisma Lim Foo Yoong's Dim Sum is pretty good too. Not expensive. During weekend they have buffet, i think pretty cheap. Cant remember the price tho.

Tai Thong's Dim Sum not consistant, some outlet is pretty good some sucks.
