After having bak kut teh, I have a walk at a jogging place in Petaling Jaya before meeting with friends at Tai Thong Dim Sum restaurant. The different between KL and northern people is that they usually have dim sum late. Around 10am, you most probably have to queue until PLUS highway for dim sum in Ipoh. In KL, people still wearing pajamas to restaurant.
There are many Tai Thong restaurants in KL area so make sure you enter the right one. The one I went was in Jaya Square in Subang Jaya and is called Tai Thong Imperial China 大同皇府酒家. It shares the same building with Neway Karaoke and badminton courts.
This is the GPS location.
The restaurant is quite grand. We were one of the few tables having breakfast there. I was surprised that not many people there even it was a Sunday. Maybe it was expensive… or people did not wake up yet after dancing until pants drop on Saturday night.
This tidbits costs RM3.00++.
A napkin costs RM0.80++. Reminded me of some Hong Kong restaurants in Penang. Before eating anything, you already used RM3.80++ there.
The dish we should not miss in every dim sum restaurant is of course, the Siew Mai 烧卖. The dish was properly presented. This is the different between normal and high class dim sum restaurants. It had whole peeled prawn on top as well.
The har kao 虾饺 also meant business with clear and clean skins arranged in tidy manner.
The Chee Cheong Fun 猪肠粉 was not bad as it had some big prawns inside.
Char Siew Bao 叉烧包 was just average.
White carrot cake 菜头糕 was not bad.
This is Wu Kok 芋角. Tasted okay.
Egg tarts 蛋挞 also okay. I prefer hot from oven type but I guess it is hard to find nowadays.
Lor Mai Kai 糯米鸡, unfortunately, was too dry.
What caught my eye during that day is a trolley with claypots on top. Waitress was heating up the claypot on the spot before putting on customer’s table. I was curious and asked the waitress what’s the thing inside. It was pig bag in white peppers soup 猪肚汤. Three of us actually already already full but thinking of trying something new, I ordered one. My friends just watched me eating… sigh.
Three of us actually spent RM100.25 in that morning. Now I know why there was not many people even on Sunday. Burning RM100 in a single morning is not everyone’s cup of tea.
My friend was a photographer as well. She took a nice shot on the tea we drank.
At first glance, Tai Thong did provide quality dim sum and comfortable environment to dine in. It is a good place for once-a-while gathering in which you can spend your time chatting without worrying people staring at you for your table. The price, however, could be expensive for some people. Don’t try to run if no $$ cause the police station just next to it.
That’s all for my trip to PJ. After the meal, I went back to Penang. It was tiring but fun journey.
