Went to Tai Thong with ALGJ, LGFL, TSL and WWS. I heard they said Tai Thong is having promotions on their dim sum, hence I agreed to go along. I guess I’ll just exempt from my strict diet for my lunch, and continue later during my dinner.

Other than the super steamed steamed peanuts and fried bean curd prawn roll, there were nothing else worth noting. The glutinous rice was nice too but the inside was too soft. The one I had in Foh San was much better. The steamed bean curd skin was really bad. It has nothing but just the bean curd skin rolled up. Yam dumpling looked good, but tasted otherwise. Lacked of any yam taste in it and I could barely make out what’s in the content. Siew mai was nothing to shout about. The mini egg tarts were rather disappointing. I guess they has butter in the egg custard because it tasted like so and the colour was very yellowish. Carrot cake was still ok. Didn’t touch the BBQ bun as I knew it probably tasted bad. TSL tried it and she can’t even finish 1/2 a bun. I guess that’s evident enough that the BBQ pork buns were bad.

With the 20% and 50% discounts, the bill came up to RM84+ for the 5 of us. The prices on the list seemed marked up before they were given discount. Anyway, Tai Thong was probably that expensive when it comes to dim sum.

We woke up damn early for the dim sum breakfast. I thought we were going Ming Court, but ended up in Foh San instead. So I’m not gonna write much about it as I’ve been here before not long ago.

Since I had to watch my strict diet, I was holding back on being glutton. I only tried to eat stuff that I feel like eating and only 1 piece of each. Nothing to shout about, the garlic chili sauce remained as good. Though there was this glutinous rice, which was pretty good where the rice was sweet in taste.
