Oriental Pearl @ Bukit Jalil

June 19, 2009

Tai Thong's so-called "Unbelievable Promotions" piqued our curiosity, so we headed to their outlet in Bukit Jalil's golf resort to check it out.

The set dinner packages for this offer basically cost around RM 20 per person, with a fairly wide range of dishes to choose from. Nothing thrilling though, just regular stuff such as chicken soup.

The crispy roast duck was terrible. Dry, overcooked and stale-tasting.

The steamed grass carp with minced ginger was OK. Reasonably fresh.

Braised beancurd with mixed seafood and mushrooms. A "safe" dish.

Hunan-style fried mantis prawns. The description sounded interesting, but the prawns themselves were instantly forgettable. More batter than prawn meat.

Sauteed broccoli with Chinese wine. We were skeptical about the wine content.

Mango pudding dessert to wrap up a lacklustre dinner.
The verdict: an affordable promo with plenty of food choices, but portion sizes are not filling enough and none of the dishes will excite the tastebuds.
