Diao Yu Tai: PJ's Chinese courtyard of culinary pleasures launches a lunch menu with creative twists
May 5, 2023
Diao Yu Tai offers a distinctively spectacular setting, complete with traditional roof beams and ornate archways amid hues of gold, transporting us to a different place and time. It's the perfect restaurant to bring together families and friends for a memorable, mouthwatering meal.
Diao Yu Tai is best known for its hotpot selection, built with broths like Pork Bone Soup, Golden Collagen Chicken Soup, White Pepper Pork Tripe Soup, and Lemon with Pickled Cabbage Soup. Available in the afternoon and evening, the hotpots harness top-tier produce like Miyazaki A5 wagyu beef, iberico pork belly, hand-crafted rose meatballs and house-made fish and shrimp paste.
Steamed Scallops, tender and tantalisingly thick, come cushioned on vermicelli for a textural treat, like a luscious noodle bowl on a scallop shell. Another starter to heartily recommend.
The Crispy Seafood Tofu is a munch-worthy marvel, irresistible for kids of all ages, its bright, crunchy batter harbouring a soft, sumptuous centre of seafood.
Diao Yu Tai's striking centrepiece for a leisurely, luxurious lunch is the Sabah Marble Goby, swimming in a mellow, tangy broth of lemon and pickled cabbage.
Also for seafood enthusiasts, try Diao Yu Tai's Asian Batong Seafood, brimming with plump prawns, sliced fish and other seafood in a robust, savoury-spicy sauce that packs a punch.
Carnivorous side dishes include Diao Yu Tai's Deep Fried Spare Ribs with Garlic, juicy and aromatically lip-smacking.
The Golden Battered Chicken in Lemon Sauce puts a spin on old-school lemon chicken, with the creamy sauce served on the side, letting us relish the meat in its complete glorious crunch.
Glutinous Rice Cakes with Brown Sugar is a can't-fail dessert to satisfy all generations of customers, washed down with revivingly herbaceous Iced Jasmine Tea laced with lemongrass.

It's even wonderful to wander the corridors here, with engaging corners to explore.
