Being one of the prominent Chinese Restaurant located in KLCC, Spring Garden Restaurant, a subsidiary of Tai Thong Group, has to be one of the must-go to spots if you're looking for good chinese cuisine. Just last week, I have had the opportunity to dine there, being invited to review their Tai Thong Nourishing Ginseng Series comprising of soups, broths and desserts.

|#1 Double-boiled Fresh Ginseng Chicken Soup with Dried Scallops & Golden Corn (RM18++ per portion)|
Janice was elated to savor some of the wonderful dishes with lots of Ginseng inside, one I'm not too fond of, but I do appreciate the healthy aspect of these delicious dishes. Our first single portion serving dish was the Double-boiled Fresh Ginseng Chicken Soup with Dried Scallops & Golden Corn. The name itself was a giveaway to its ingredients, which was basically double boiled chicken soup with a heavy flavour of Ginseng. The dried scallops and golden corn thrown inside added to the flavour, giving a sweet and savory taste to the dish.
|#2 Double-boiled Fresh Ginseng Chicken Soup with Rose & Snowy Lily Bulbs |
(RM18++ per portion)
Almost similar to the first dish, the Double-boiled Fresh Ginseng Chicken Soup with Rose & Snowy Lily Bulbs had an even stronger taste of ginseng, probably due to the rather big piece of ginseng root thrown inside the soup. Double-boiled and brewed for a very long period, what differentiates this dish was the Rose and Lily bulbs contained inside. Pretty good stuff here I would say, and lovers of Ginseng soup would love this.
|#3 Fresh Ginseng Broth with Dried Scallops & Bean Curd (RM18++ per portion)|
If you're not so into soups, then go for their other choices on the Tai Thong Nourishing Ginseng Series menu. At a similar price of RM18++ per portion, you can choose the Fresh Ginseng Broth with Dried Scallops & Bean Curd. I personally liked this dish more, as the dried scallop added flavour to the dish, with the bean curd giving that extra texture without being overpowered by too much Ginseng taste. The Ginseng taste is still there, but slightly milder compared to the previous soup dishes.
|#4 Fresh Ginseng Broth with Duo Scallop (RM18++ per portion)|
Even though they came in single portion servings, but I would think the servings were rather large, good to be shared by two persons, or when sharing just order two different dishes instead. Our next dish served that night was the Fresh Ginseng Broth with Duo Scallop, perfect for diners looking to have the luxury of eating huge fresh scallops served together with really nourishing Ginseng.
|#6 Fresh Ginseng Pudding with Bird's Nest & Aloe Vera|
It was indeed a night of luxurious food, as nourishing ginseng was used in every dish, even in the two desserts that came last. Being part of the Tai Thong Nourishing Ginseng Series, our dessert of the Fresh Ginseng Pudding with Bird's Nest & Aloe Vera arrived served in these cute chilled small cups. This wasn't your usual sweet pudding dessert, as we could actually taste the generous mix of bird's nest and aloe vera. Of course, having ginseng added inside, you should expect the pudding to have a heavy hint of ginseng flavour to it.
The Double-boiled Egg with Honey, Fresh Ginseng, Bird's Nest & Aloe Vera was a unique blend of double-boiled egg in a cup, with the natural sweetness coming from the added honey. Like the previous dessert, this had fresh ginseng, bird's nest & aloe vera too, ingredients I don't normally have every other day.
Of course, if you love Ginseng, you must try these dishes out. The Tai Thong Nourishing Ginseng Series comes a a price of RM18++ per portion, a steal if you look at the ingredients used. The promotion is currently on-going from 1st October 2013 to 31st December 2013, so do drop by any of their outlets to try these out soon.
