It’s already mid-January and Chinese New Year (CNY) is just a month away, falling exactly on the Valentine’s Day, Febuary 14th 2010..
I bet everyone has been busy spring cleaning and shopping for CNY clothes a.k.a red clothes or anything that is bright..
But one must remember that in our Chinese custom, eating good food is considered as a fortune or luck because a lot of people died of hunger in every other part of the world..
Being able to eat good food is a kind of fortune to us Chinese, hence we must appreciate food more..
So here I’m giving you an option of a restaurant for your family dinner during CNY..
It’s House of Tang, situated in one of the stretch of restaurants along One Bangsar in Jalan Ara, Bangsar..
*House of Tang*
This is what you will see from the main road when you are going up the slope from the Bangsar mosque..
The Bangsar mosque is on your right, where it’s beside Bangsar Village 1 open carpark, go up the slope, you will see House of Tang on your right..
*Yumcha and Dimsum*
House of Tang opens from 10.30am-2.30pm and 6.30pm-10.30pm daily, except for Tuesday which is their off day..
You can choose to dine-in or out if you are a smoker..Both sections are pretty chilling..
The concept of House of Tang is to make you feel homely, with their homely decorations and also homely dishes..
One more thing, their food are all MSG-FREE~!!
*The usual foodies*
Thanks to Richard and Edward we are able to dine here and thanks to Sid for inviting us..
So before we start to eat anything, it’s good to take few sips of hot Chinese tea to clear your taste buds and also your throat..
*Salmon Yee Sang with Crispy Shredded Treasures in Plum Dressing*
To usher the CNY 2010, one must not left out the Chinese custom food for CNY which is Yee Sang..
For Chinese, Yee Sang is not a neccessity but it’s somewhat a practise with a hope to bring in fortune, wealth, and health..Yes, very typical Chinese indeed..
The restaurant has served this Yee Sang (?????) with the right amount of oil and sauce which is not too dry nor too wet..
I’m not really a fan of Yee Sang but the fresh salmon here makes me want more!
*Shark’s Fin Soup with Dried Scallop in Winter Melon*
*Richard doing his thang*
The Shark’s Fin Soup (????? ???????) is quite smooth and it’s not very thick..A lot of people tend to take lesser shark’s fin soup during a meal because the thick broth makes one feel very full..
The texture is just nice which allows us to continue on with our feast..
