We kicked started our sumptuous dinner with their selection of soups.
Soup Of The Day ~ Watercress with Dried Oyster and Mushroom
Very homey, I felt like drinking soup prepared by my mom 🙂
Braised Hot and Sour Soup served with Wantan
Double-Boiled Sea Cucumber with Cordyceps Flower and Wolfberry Soup
Crabmeat and Diced Tomato in Sweet Corn Broth
Double-Boiled Shitake and Bai Lin Mushroom with Vegetable Soup
All the soups was well prepared with delicate ingredients, they sure did a great job to warm our bellies and soul on a cold rainy night.
Steamed San Gan in Abalone Sauce
Steamed Marinated Chicken Feet with Three Varieties Sauce
Steamed Boneless Chicken Wings with Spicy Black Bean Sauce
This dim sum is an incarnation of steamed spare ribs we usually found in Non-Halal dim sum joint but equally lip-smacking as the boneless chicken wings were tender and managed to absorb the flavors from the black bean sauce. I can polished the whole plate off clean by myself 😛
Steamed Fish Balls in Crab Meat Sauce
The texture of the fish balls was hard and definitely not up to par.
Chicken Siew Mai
Fried Crispy Bean Curd Rolls with Prawns and Cheddar Cheese
Crispy Seafood Wonton with Mix Fruit Salsa
The seafood wonton was crispy on the outer with generous toothsome filling, paired with refreshing mix fruit salsa was a great combination. I love the fruity touch of it!
Deep Fried Prawn Dumplings with Wasabi Mayonnaise
Time for mains and we really spoilt for choices, everything in the menu sound like utterly delicious and inviting. Arghh…I wish I have bigger stomach here!
Chef live in action whipping up some scrumptious food for the diners.
Poached Lamb Fillet in Bak Kut Teh Style
The definitely passing with passed with flying colours ~ A vibrant combination of tender lamb fillet and intense flavored herbal soup.
Diced Chicken Meat Rice with Black Sesame Powder
I expected more dense flavor from the black sesame however it tasted quite mild for me.
Braised Japanese Udon Noodles with Chicken Meat in Hokkien Style
Udon was used instead of usual thick yellow noodle to provide more springy texture for every mouthful.
Deep Fried Oysters with Mango Puree
The noteworthy of this dish definitely the sizable oyster which is exceptionally fresh and tasted fabulous with the crispy batter. The mango puree also liven up the dish beautifully, thumbs up for the chef!
Crispy Chicken in Fruit Salsa
The same fruit salsa dressing with the fried seafood wonton was being used here and it went well too with the fried chicken fillet.
Lamb Rack in Mongolian Sauce
Nowadays lamb rack become more common in Chinese cuisine and here at Tao, the chef have it paired with creamy Mongolian sauce. The sauce was lusciously rich and creamy with faint whiff of curry powder (I assume :P), it just compelled you to mop it up clean!
Barbeque Chicken Wings
Slow Cooked Beef with Yam
Resemble the Brasied Pork Belly with Yam (Wu Tao Kao Yuk 芋头扣肉), but I still prefer the original version 🙁 The beef brisket was too hard and it didn’t really match with the “San Cha山茶山” sauce here.
Sauteed Yau Mak with Salted Fish
This simple dish was executed with grace with addition of lime juice sprinkled in when cooking process. The lovely whiff of salted fish also one of factor to make everyone had a silent moment when digging in.
Deep Fried Glutinous Sesame Balls with Bamboo Charcoal Lotus Paste
Oven Baked Mini Fragrant Egg Tar
Slow Boiled Snow Fungus with Sea Coconut and Ginseng Roots
Creamy Milk Pudding Served with Passion Fruit Dressing
Poached Black Sesame Glutinous Dumplings in Warm Soya Bean
The dessert choices might be quite limited but each of them was unique on its own from the flavors to the textures. Please make sure you save room for them or else you will regret, I tell ya 🙂
