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.

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!

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!

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.
