Festive Indulgence with Tai Thong 2016

To mark the year of the Monkey, Tai Thong Group has put together a series of delectable dishes inspired by the Monkey King (Sun Wu Kong or Qi Tian Da Sheng). The Monkey King is the main character in the classic Chinese novel – Journey to the West, published since the 16th century. Having that in mind, Tai Thong Group Executive Chef Lee Wee Hong played around with superior ingredients and special recipes to ensure that these new dishes embody the unique characteristics of Monkey King and customers are promised a journey of great taste and divine flavours.
