Tang Shifu Restaurant 1 Utama

The other day, I was at 1 Utama for Paul preview screening when we decided to drop by this restaurant which specializes in chinese soups for a quick dinner before the show. It was my first time seeing this restaurant so I was really intrigued with its name, "Tang Shifu Restaurant" which literally translated from mandarin means "Soup Master Restaurant"!

Nourishing Life!
Located at LG of 1 Utama New Wing
Tang Shifu restaurant
Lot LG321.
1 Utama Shopping Centre (New Wing)
03-7727 2772

The taglines read "Nourishing Life" and "Healthiness starts with Tangshifu". How can I not have healthy thoughts upon seeing words such as this. So with my mind filled with healthy soups, we proceeded to order our dishes. The menu was filled with different types of chinese soups, mostly those of the herbal type. Different ingredients were used ranging from ginseng, to scallops, to your ever expensive birds nest!

The menu
Easy to order menu with pretty pictures

The ambience of the restaurant was pretty good too, with nearly every table occupied. I guess people are really health conscious nowadays. Do check out below for a picture inside the restaurant as well as some of the dishes I ordered for the night.

#1 RM 9.90
#2 RM 15.90
Came with the Mee Suah Soup set

I admit my choice of stewed pork with brown rice wasn't really the healthy choice, but I did choose brown rice over normal rice, and we all know brown rice goes through less processes and is the healthier option!

#1 Stewed Pork with Brown Rice
It was pretty good. The meat was stewed really well, and turned out soft and tasty. I wasn't too used to brown rice though, but it's the healthier option!

#2 Mee Suah with Herbs and Rice Wine
The dish came in this wooden basket presentation which looked really big. The portion itself was average and not really big. I could taste the strong taste of rice wine mixed with combined herbs, which when taken with the mee suah tasted great! There was a generous piece of chicken thigh included as well as 2 side dishes of black dace and a small portion of stewed pork.

Wet tissue hygienically packed

We were each provided with the wet tissue above to clean our hands after the meal. However, I chose to return it for a refund of RM2 as I didn't think my hands were dirty enough to require an RM2 wet tissue. Overall it was a good meal, with hot soup and some really delicious tasting stewed pork. Do drop by the restaurant should you suddenly crave for some chinese herbal soup.
