For Dim Sum lovers, Tai Thong is proud to present 2 series of Tai Thong Dim Sum. First up, the Black Temptations Dim Sum series features four delectable dim sums from dim sum Chef Loo Kok Seng.
Pan Seared Dumpling with Fish Paste & Cheese (RM9.80), an East meets West concoction of fish paste and cheese is delightfully enveloped in a black and white dumpling skin. I do admit to enjoy this ying and yang combination. Enjoy this hot for the ooey-gooey melted cheese sensation!
Glutinous Dumpling with Sesame Paste (RM6.80) is one of my favorite dim sum that day. The lightly chewy and soft black sesame mochi encasing nutty and creamy black sesame filling is marvelous and very aromatic. A pleasurable dim sum with an oozing filling popping in the mouth…
Who would ever thought of combining the king of fruit with the rich salted egg? Charcoal Bun with Durian & Salted Egg (RM9.80) was very well received by many who was also surprised at how the flavours of this pairing turn out to be. The black bun and its filling turned out to be very rich and sinful in flavours as advised by many foodies.
Do try the refreshing Chilled Coffee Flavoured Jelly Cake (RM5.80). I enjoyed the big hit of coffee note in the jelly balanced with a layers of creamy jelly. The lightly chewy texture is another plus point to this dim sum dessert.
Black Temptations Dim Sum series available from 1 August 2015 till 31 October 2015
For those who enjoy spicy flavours, don’t miss the Spicy Szechuan Dim Sum series. Showcasing four spicy dim sums, this series will certainly heat up your senses. The only gripe here is one might need to wait for a little while as this series is only available in November only.
A hodge-podge of yellow chicken glutinous rice topped with spicy Nyonya sambal wrapped in bao bun, the Chicken Bun Nyonya Style (RM10.80) proved to be a winner in my books. The pungent salty and lightly sweet Nyonya sambal was the highlight of this dim sum. Inspired by the classic Kai Wo Bao, this version is very tasty and piquant.
Dumplings are also spiced up in heat with this Pan Seared Spicy Dumpling (RM8.80). Nicely pan-seared on one side together with a piece of crispy white lacy wrap, the minced meat and seafood dumpling has a good bouncy bite with spicy savory flavours. Definitely one of my favorite spicy dumplings of the meal!
Spicy Dumplings in Pepper Soup (RM9.80) showcases another delicious minced meat and seafood dumpling in a peppery broth. There’s plenty of black pepper in the dumpling for extra peppery heat too. This is a dish I would definitely reorder again as it has bold spicy flavours that worked well with the seafood dumpling.
The dish that took me by surprised was the least dim-sum looking dish of Seafood Curry with Puff Pastry (RM11.80). Beautifully baked golden puff pastry is capped on a bowl of piping hot seafood curry. The piquant curry is tastefully spicy in heat and has nice chunks of squid, prawn and fish. A tad oily but I still enjoyed the curry with the buttery flaky puff pastry.
Spicy Szechuan Dim Sum series available from 1 November 2015 till 31 January 2015
Besides the dim sum promotions, diners can also enjoy Tai Thong’s current Barbeque Promotion and Jade Perch Promotion at all their outlets for a limited time only.
The Barbeque Promotion is certainly one to watch out for as there are a few barbeque dishes specially concocted by Tai Thong’s chefs.
First up, a majestic looking Flaming Beijing Duck served with Crispy Bun (RM88.80) had all of us experiencing a fiery flaming action as we watch the Beijing Duck being lite up! I didn’t manage to catch the flaming action but one look at the beautifully lacquered duck with its glistening skin had me drooling at sight.
With quick and deft slicing actions, our Beijing duck had its skin nicely cut into rectangle pieces and serve with the side of crispy Mantao buns, scallion, cucumber and hoisin sauce.
The skin is gorgeously crisp and nicely flavoured with a touch of caramel sweetness. Sandwich everything together for a mouthful of delectable crispy duck skin with a good bite from condiments. Simply delicious!
The rest of the duck was whipped back into the kitchen for a second preparation for the duck. Our preferred method was Salt & Pepper style. Unlike most Salt & Pepper dishes, this one was not battered and deep fried, allowing us to enjoy the dark meaty flavours of the duck.
Other barbeque items include Braised Triple Platter (RM23.90) and Duet of Deep-Fried Shatin Chicken and Smoked Duck with Chilled Jelly Fish (RM23.80)
Barbeque Promotion available from 1 July 2015 to 30 September 2015
Fish lovers will be pleased with the Jade Perch Promotion, an Australian fish that is rich in Omega-3 fish oil and has a smooth, soft and sweet flesh.
Taking on a creative approach, we tried the Baked Jade Perch with Chilled Garlic Pickled Cucumber Sauce (RM68.80). The bits of pickled cucumber together with chili and garlic is so yummy with tangy, sweet and savory notes. The condiments even enhanced the sweetness of the fish, making it quite addictive and delectably unique. Other Jade Perch item include a Deep Fried Jade Perch with Tamarind Sauce (RM68.80)
Jade Perch Promotion available from 1 May 2015 to 31 August 2015
