Tian Ding Xing 天鼎香 @ Gurney Plaza, Penang

Few weeks prior Chinese New Year, we get to know this restaurant - Tian Ding Xiang via their frequent advertisement on their poon choi. Coincidently on that random weekend we need to take our lunch at Gurney shopping mall and ended up being here, savouring some Chinese style dishes. 

I have to say the server really did a good job at promoting while we were flipping through the menu at the restaurant entrance hesitantly. She managed to persuade us dining in eventually by using the promotion that the dishes are offered at a flat rate of  either RM 9.90 or RM12.90.

Well the promotion is only the ideal case as only selected dishes cost RM12.90 flat rate while there are another menu with more exquisite dishes, and of course with a higher price tag as well. However we were perfectly fine with that as the menu was full of choices for us to pick.

We went for their Fried Mantis Prawn with Chives and Chilli (RM 12.90) and it was an above average dish. We thought the chef did a great job in mixing the flavour of the mantis prawn, achieving a delectable balance between salty and a slight tingling sensation from the chilli. It was well fried and not exhibiting the greasy properties. Downside will be their relatively small size of mantis prawns.

We wanted to order water spinach but had to settle with Braised Spicy Mah Poh Beancurd (RM 9.90) as water spinach was out of stock. It was not really spicy but the sauce was pleasant to our taste buds, and the beancurd was nicely cubed.

Double Boiled Blacked Bone Chicken Soup (12.90) with the essence of chickens well infused to the soup. Nevertheless, the taste could be slightly enhanced still to cater for our picky tongue.

Their silky smooth milk tea is worth the price. We have never tried local Hong Kong milk tea but this one perhaps has 50% or more comparable to Hong Kong's?
