The last time I had some healthy dishes from this chain was back in May last year at Tang Shifu's branch in 1 Utama. (Tang Shifu Restaurant 1 Utama) This round, I was with Janice at the KL Festival City Mall when we spotted their newly opened outlet there. This time however, the display name has been changed to Taang Shifu with the additional 'a'. I'm not exactly sure why the change in shop name.

|Oriental Chinese Decor|
The interior of Tang Shifu's outlet in Festival City Mall really gives off an oriental feel as can be seen in the photos above. I actually felt I was walking into one of the Chinese restaurants in ancient times, just like in the movies.

My first impression of Tang Shifu was that they do serve lots of healthy soups ranging from Gin Seng to various types of herbs. The price ranges from around RM10 per bowl of soup to the hundreds depending on the ingredient thrown in. Check out below on what we had that evening.
|#1 Dang Gui Stewed Pork with Rice - RM8.90++|

Now the Dang Gui Stewed Pork with Rice came in this really tall wooden basket, which I felt was rather unique. It did make things difficult especially when I wanted to dig into the rice inside. Tang Shifu was really generous with the meat though, which I suspect might be due to the restaurant being new and all.
|#2 Mee Suah with Herbs and Rice Wine Set - RM15.90++|
The Mee Suah with Herbs and Rice Wine was good too, just a bit too strong on the wine. It had such a strong wine taste in it, that I wondered if they had accidentally poured too much wine in. But if you like your soup "strong", then this dish would have been perfect.
|#3 Luo Han Guo with Longan and Honey Drink - RM5.90++|
|Taang Shifu, "Healthiness Starts with Us"|
Overall a pretty good meal at Tang Shifu Festival City Mall, and it's filling too. I don't quite agree on the healthy part though, as the meat that came in my dish was pretty oily with fats, while and overdose of rice wine isn't really good right? Probably I'll come back again to try their more exotic soups which are touted to be "healthier".
