Penang food lovers have a reason to celebrate as the Xian Ding Wei Taiwanese Tea Room has recently opened its doors at the Queensbay Mall. We have seen the outlets in KL but have never tried it. Being early adopters, we jumped at the opportunity of trying the food there. :)
The restaurant is enjoying brisk business due to the festive season and the fact that it's just newly opened.
Cozy ambience with comfortable chairs
Xian Ding Wei menu
Sweet Osmanthus with Honey (RM4.90)
Honeydew Bubble Milk Tea (RM4.90)
We ordered the set menu which comes with a choice of main, plain rice or minced pork rice, three side dishes of the day and soup of the day.
Though the congee was not as smooth as the Canton-i version, there such was a lot of seafood ingredients e.g. fish slice, prawns, cuttlefish etc.
I have never tried "Buddha Jump Over the Wall" but this one was quite good and definitely value-for-money. There was chicken and pork meat, baby abalone (or some shellfish), red dates, chinese wolfberry etc. in the soup.
Stewed Pork and Fish with Cabbage set (RM18.90)
The stewed pork and fish with cabbage set was rather dissapointing. We couldn't find much meat and fish in the stew.
Soup of the Day - Radish Soup
Side dishes of the day - Pickle, Deep Fried Fritters, Shellfish Salad
We liked the minced pork rice.
Overall Xian Ding Wei is definitely worth a try for its variety, value-for-money and definitely since Taiwanese food doesn't come by so easily Penang. :)
P/S: Writing this post sure makes me miss my Taiwan food adventure. Check my posts here, here and here.
