Just as we thought another Bubble Milk Tea is opening up at The Promenade, we were surprised to find out that Din Ding Tea 津鼎茶 is actually a restaurant offering a Chinese menu. The new kid on the block has a cozy, tranquil setting... with Chinese Tea Pots and knick-knacks adorning the walls while the tables and chairs are all Chinese-themed, pretty much suited to the theme. While the place has a very Chinese decor, the menu is a blend of local and Chinese dishes... featuring South East Asian delights like Nasi Lemak, Thai styled Chicken, Fish and curry dishes. Prices are on the steeper side though the serving portions are fairly large....
Fried Fish Fillet Bee Hoon 清汤鱼片米粉 (Rm 18.90)
Nasi Lemak with Lemongrass Chicken Chop 特制香茅鸡扒椰浆饭 (Rm 19.90)
Sesame Oil Chicken 古早味麻油鸡 (Rm 16.90)
One of their signature dishes- Sesame Oil Chicken was pretty good... tenderly cooked Chicken Thigh topped with crisp Ginger floss; the Sesame Oil flavor was bold and the dish was expertly seasoned. It would be a dish that goes perfectly well with Rice. Both Fried Fish Fillet Bee Hoon and Nasi Lemak with Lemongrass Chicken Chop were little less-exciting... the former one was merely disappointingly average Fish Fillet Bee Hoon (a decent one) while the latter choice was Nasi Lemak, though served with a slab of Lemongrass-marinated Chicken Chop. The Sambal was not as spicy as we would have hoped and the Egg could have been better replaced with Sunny Side Up. Not exactly a bad Nasi Lemak but definitely can be better.
