Taang Shifu (汤师父), Paradigm Mall Food Review

TaangShifu has always look like a posh Chinese restaurant to me which I daren't walk in.
 I later discovered that the prices of their dishes aren't as expensive as I thought even though the outlook of it leans towards that way.
I had a chance for a delightful food review session at the Paradigm Mall branch one evening and took the opportunity to savor it's noms. TaangShifu's concept is healthy eats and are Chinese type of food. All items

To start off with, I ordered a  Honey Pomelo Tea (RM6.90) to wet my parched throat.
The drink intrigued me with it's unique tasty flavor that I took a liking to. Positive comments about the other drinks my fellow compatriots ordered shows that TaangShifu's drinks too are a noteworthy item on their menu.

The dishes came pouring out as soon as they were given the green light to serve and here is what we had that night.

Cordycep Flower and Japanese Mushroom with Sliced Pork (RM38.90):
Meant to improve respiratory function & to treat asthma, cough empysema. Also to improve brain memory and reduce blood sugar & blood pressure. Pork is tender and mushrooms are chewy.

Angelica Dang Gui Stewed Pork topped on Rice (RM7.90):
To go with our meat and veggies served to us. Said to regulate blood circulation.

Another rice provided to us is the Dried Scallops & Petite Abalone Mixed Rice (RM16.90):
I liked this soupy rice more than the dry one. Makes it nicer and easier to eat. :P
Health benefit mentioned is that it restructure spleen and rejuvenate mentality.

Hsien Tsai with Wolfberry Simmered in Soup (RM14.90):
Well, nothing unusual nor special about it. Just how a vegetable would taste like. But it has a very clear type of taste. Health benefit mentioned is that it's rich in calcium and strengthens bone structure.

Snow Mountain Lotus Black Chicken Soup (RM38.90):
The Black Chicken don't have much taste to it. It's more towards it's mushroom and soup which gives out an herbal taste. Known to regenerate brain cells and act as antioxidants.

Taang Shifu Signature Soup (RM38.90):
Packed with quite a number of ingredients. Ginseng Roots, American Ginseng and Cordyceps, Scallops, Mushrooms, Needle Mushrooms, Fish Maw and a variety of Chinese herbs that are boiled and stewed for 8 hours, it provided quite a powerful herbal taste with all the ingredients complementing it except for the mushroom which lets off a little sweetness in the taste. Good for recuperating energy, revive vitality and improve the immune system.

This here is the Home Braised Pork Belly in Rich Dark Sauce:
Meant to eat with the Bread and cucumber and that crunchy bits of stuff there in dispersing the richness of the Pork Belly. Priced at RM22.90 and is said to regenerate the digestive system.

Here's my favorite among all that I've tried there.
It's the Stewed Fish Head with Wine & Chuan Xiong (RM28.90). Really love the sauce that goes with the fish. Just makes it such a pleasure to keep on eating it. Known to regenerate "Qi" and improve blood circulation.

Broccoli with Sliced Abalone and Scallops (RM23.90):
Fresh and crunchy broccoli and scallops. Of course vegetables are good for you. Don't need to be told of it's benefits. LOL. It's mentioned that it enhances functionality of the digestive system.

Dried Scallop Spare Rib Soup with Cordyceps (RM23.90):
Unlike the Signature Soup, this has a way weaker herbal taste than that. Most likely it could be because the Signature Soup has loads of ingredients boiled with it. Known to benefit the lungs and nourish the body.

Eight Treasure Pickles with Tea Mushroom and Bamboo Fungus:
Priced at RM25.90. Said to improve digestive system and eases gastric.

We ended with some Caramel Beancurd (RM5.90):
Nice and soft and refreshingly cool.

Yup. I thought it was expensive too with that kind of decoration. But there are reasonably priced dishes. Of course, there are high end dishes too. :)
