With year of monkey approaching, Tai Thong Restaurants celebrates and dedicate the series of their auspicious dishes this year; inspired by the god of Monkey King himself. Tai Thong Group’s Executive Chef Lee Wee Hong and his team uses superior ingredients and special recipes, ensuring these Chinese New Year dishes embodies the unique characteristics of Monkey King, allowing diners to embark a journey of great taste and divine flavours.
Golden Fortune Yee Sang with fruits and nuts (RM68.80++ for half portion and RM108.80++ for full portion) lets diners tossed the combination of pistachio, almonds, dried blueberries and cranberries with other lovely fruits like apple, promegrate and dragon fruit. Not forgetting what’s taking center stage on the plate, the Monkey King’s favourite fruit- Peach.
Also in the spotlight is their Double – boiled Dried Seafood Soup served in coconut (RM 48.80+). Inevitably nourishing with the kind of ingredients but at the same time potentially overwhelming for those watching the cholesterol levels. We are looking at fish maw, abalone, scallops, village chicken mushroom and bamboo pith and the only complain probably is the tiny opening at the coconut that’s a little obstructive when scooping those seafood essence.
The smorgasbord of luxury sea harvests all piled onto one giant platter, each carefully seasoned and cooked, from deep fried tiger prawns to cheese baked mussels, and the traditional ingredients performing at their very best, Tai Thong’s Fortune Seafood Treasure Pot (RM 298.80+ for 5 pax and RM 498.80 for 10pax) is guaranteed not shabby at all to be on center stage at the reunion dinner.
With a touch of Japanese in the rice dish, Tai Thong chooses edamame to tone greasiness in their Claypot Rice with Chinese Waxed Meat and Edamame. And the creativity continues in the Chilled “Nian Gao” with Osmanthus and Sakura (RM 11.80+ for 6 pcs) to have that chewy texture completely enclosed by a layer of fragrant Osmanthus jelly.
