Tu-Long for Dinner

All my trips to KL have been nothing short of phenomenal, especially when it came to food. Last weekend in KL was another food-filled adventure, which has left me guilty as ever for not starting out on my exercise regime just yet.

With a name like Tu-Long, I was worried that we would need to wait for AGES for our food to arrive. I was already starving and my tummy was crying out for dinner. Since we were looking for a nice Chinese restaurant and my BIL mentioned that there was a good one just adjacent to MidValley Megamall, we decided to head that direction. It all happened last Saturday evening and thankfully in spite of that, the restaurant did not have many patrons. Not sure if that’s a good indication, but it could be due to the fact that it was located near a construction site and there were many construction workers loitering outside…you know, the kind that would potentially use wolf whistles?

Anyway, I was rather impressed with the decor of the restaurant. Classic Chinese restaurant and yet elegant in every aspect. We were ushered to the first floor and ordered various dishes, including the siew long pao and the hot and sour la-mien. My tummy did not need to suffer long because the food was served in less than 10 minutes! The siew long pao was really really good, the soup within each one oozing out with each careful nibble and sip, definitely miles better than the ones I have had in Dragon-i. But the most noteworthy dish would have to be the pig shank with mantou. Sinfully delicious, with just the right amount of fat, it tasted so similar to the fei-chee-yoke we got in the regular bak-changs.

I miraculously still found room for dessert, and I must say that the mango sago pudding really was the icing on the cake. It had just the right amount of sweetness to leave me craving for more.

Let’s just say I am thankful this restaurant did not live up to its name (which sounds like “too long” or “tolong”) :P

    Tu-Long is one strange name, but luckily – like you put it – the place didn’t actually live up to its name… haha.

    ‘Miraculously still found room for dessert’… Haha, my friends complain about this ‘condition’ alot ;p

    The Giddy Tiger says: Why complain? I think that’s a blessing :P

  7. huisia says:

    In KK also has this Tu-Long, the siew long pao is the “jiu pai choi”…

    The Giddy Tiger says: So it’s a franchise?

  8. Angeleyes says:

    wah… the fat fat porky looks sinful eh? LOL

    The Giddy Tiger says: Extremely. :)

  9. Pinkelle says:

    That pork looks terribly good :P *closes eyes and tries to remain on healthy eating diet*

    I’ve always wondered how Tu-long is as it’s one of the first Chinese restaurants I’ve seen with so many chandeliers! Btw, hope the Midvalley parking and jam around the whole mall didn’t kill you :P

    The Giddy Tiger says: I’m still here, aren’t I? Thankfully we found a parking within minutes of entering the car park :)

  10. Adino says:

    Ah… looks good. Looks expensive too. How do we get there from Mid Valley? I mean, which mall exit did you use?

    The Giddy Tiger says: I thought the bill was fairly reasonable. Sorry no details now. I used the exit that leads out to Chili’s. Don’t know the name of that one, cos I’m not from KL.

  11. ParisB says:
