With its rich red and black tones adorning the walls and furniture of this oriental eatery, Ti Chen has a lot more to offer. Assisting Ti Chen in retaining its stature and reputation are two new chefs, Chef Lai Chong Seng and Dim Sum Chef Yau Kim Yew.

The restaurant can be divided into many sections, even for private dining that they do have huge wooden panel to block it off, unique of all they have see thru curtain to make it more elegant and separation between rooms.

A simple conversation flow between the manager and the rest of us then we are greeted with chef signature dish, coming up with Roasted Duck and Mandarin Orange Salad with Wafu Dressing.

Carefully chop duck meat with slightly crispy skin along top with some sesame seed along with wafu dressing make it a simple dish along with lots of greens with fragrant to start off with.

Steamed Cod with Preserved  Radish. Cod is nicely cut into a slab, then sitting on top of bean spout, as chef creation to make this dish a slight cripsy when you eat along with bean sprout. I always love this simple dish with soy base.

Top dish in my list for the night is Prawn and Scallop with Green Ginger Puree. Purer are place on top of the scallop then steam along that make the taste blend in very well and freshness of both succulent prawn and scallop just make it awesome. Chewy texture from both seafood,  seafood will make this dish pair very well with rice.

Appear next is Homemade Beancurd with Crab Meat and Pumpkin Puree. Creamy pumpkin  flooding the whole plate with fresh crab meat, Shimeji mushroom and edamame that top along with deep fried tofu below is something many people would go for unless they do not take beancurd.

With a few dishes being serve, comes along Special Wok Fried Rice with Tobiko and Crispy Beancurd Skin is one of my favourite too. Filled with wok hei and every mouthfull is fill with slight burst of tobiko make it a perfect dish yet pair along the the dishes above is just perfect. Good enough to be satisfied.

The dinner ended in satisfaction when Sea Bird’s Nest with Aloe Vera in Longan Syrup is serve upon. First time learning this new fact that the marine plant is rich in enzyme nutrients, collagen and mineral substances, calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, sodium and multitude fibers and jelly form proteins. It has to be cook in this way to preserve the mineral of it. Texture is chewy with slightly crunchy. Refreshing sweetness of the soup base from longan make it a satisfying ending.

Then we only found out that Chef Lai is from Penang, instantly the whole conversation converted to Hokkien. Its just a switch of language when usually found out kaki lang. :p Chef Lai with his vast experience of 19 years and overseas then found himself establishing  in Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine, and wonders of taste he can do with Chinese food without using pork.

Besides that, also found out that Chef Lai is good in cooking homecook meal with his collection of recepies along the way.

The Mid-Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival which falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month is one of the important festivals observed by Chinese all over the world. Many of the restaurant owners will take this advantage to showcase their individual version of mooncake taste and snowskin mooncake had been one of the latest trend to evolve over the past years.

Still this Supreme Mixed Nuts remains as one of the heavy weight classic version that many people love this.

Always comes to mooncake, I still prefer my classic version with White Lotus Paste with Single Yolk. Yolk is definately a must and without it is like cooking a plate of noodle without oil. 😀

Sweetened Red Beans with Green Tea Paste

One that stood out very well is  White Coffee Lotus Paste with Walnuts, yes, they really do it in Coffee version that the flavour is not too strong, creamy and  mild enough not to overpower the taste of the yolk and after taste of coffee is build upon your taste bud. One of a recommended one.

Comes to their snowskin version, they have pretty impressive range especially on the skin texture that I could not reveal it to you, certainly it stood up more than the rest. A bit soft chewy that pairs very well with the filling that they insert in.

 Mini Snow Skin – HoneyDew Paste, Orange Flavour and Black Sesame seed.

Among those 3 flavours, it stood up by itself that Honeydew taste like rock melon sweet, orange flavour with robust taste like orange skin and Black sesame is just perfect.

Previously my friend did told me about this place, never really got a chance to try out. Just so coincidence that happen to find my friend around Wangsa Maju area and I thought of this place for lunch.

The outlook of the shop which is kinda hard to get spotted cuz its located at the very corner.


Their plain menu with all black.

The set lunch menu to be choose from RM7.90 – RM15.90. After ordering my food, I decided to walk around to see its very own 4 section. What I have in my thought its someting like Quattro club. The restaurant occupied 2 story.

So start off from the top floor, which I came into this room. Interesting~ Definately suits me, but the section was closed, open more for dinner. This is their ‘Winter Room’

Pretty amazed of their interior, with this the sofa area sure very comfy.

The other section of the winter.

Walk out from winter room, this is ‘Autumm’ which is under the sun light. For smokers, I think this area sure will be a nice place to hang out, especially at night. This section also opens at night only.
Followed by the ground floor which lead by the spiral staircase to this ‘Summer’ area. The decoration of fan, lighting and the coconut tree sure makes the environments feels more summer.
This is the ‘Spring’ area which open up for lunch. Have a very nice interior which is pretty comfy and enjoying your lunch.
All set lunch comes with this set of appetizer. From very left is the
Jack fruit desert: not much taste at all, the santan is very diluted. The jack fruit is not sweet.
Cake: hopeless, its a bit hard, the chocolate top more on powdery taste.
Watermelon: okay lah~
The karipap: One word. Taste Geli!
Given a complimentary ‘Green Tea’
This is the extra side order which is ‘Vietnamese Cripsy Prawn Roll with Mango’. Mentioning with mango, the first bite, we could not detect any mango taste only can see a mango slice in there, the prawn is just average and the roll was friend to perfection with sesame seed around it. With the sauce in there, we feel that the taste does not really match as it covered up the mango taste. RM 8
My lunch order ‘Chicken and Cheeze Pasta’. Which noting much to comment on it. Just taste very normal. RM 9.90

The next order is ‘Chinese Style Roasted Chicken Rice’. Quite a large portion with the chicken they are giving consider alot. They sauce taste quite mild, just nice to go along with the chicken, the chicken meat is soft as were given breast part, to eat it with white rice perfectly goes along very well. RM 9.90

The next order is ‘Americian Club Sandwich’ RM14. With the price tag slap on the sandwich, sure it is not a disappointment. It is very nice, the veggie is fresh, the turkey ham is nice, fried egg and some chicken pieces and with the dressing the put on, its a sandwich you would be asking for.

 

Honestly, I would give them second chance for their food, most probably would try to dine at night to see what is the difference but of course I would say that this would be one of the best spot to hang out with friends especially the Winter and Autumm area. Dissapointed on food of that day but impress with the ambiance.
All the price are nett~
