Penang food: De Tai Tong cafe

On the second day, we woke up bright and early to search for some good dim sum. As per researched, we found good reviews for De Tai Tong dim sum via Time Out and Trip Advisor.

It was okay, not that fantastic in my opinion. I will write about another recommended dim sum place later.

We set off early but we got hopelessly lost because I forgot to on the GPS function on my tablet (which we loaded Google Maps on).

De Tai Tong was one of those old school places with push carts where you can pick off the dim sum that you want. We were there about 10-11am so I guess there wasn’t much varieties left. Dim sum in Malaysia is generally cheaper and tastier than Singapore’s. I feel that they have more varieties. The dishes range from 1.60RM to 5RM.

It was a bright and sunny day when we got lost
Hopelessly trying to figure our way there
Two brains still not enough
I got a little bored
And we finally found the place

Pick what you want off the push cart
They also have baos
Our first choices

The fan choy was good – I remember the char siew being awesome and we were fighting for it. The fried dishes were okay as well but as what Roger says, “it’s hard to go wrong with fried dishes.”

Unwrapping the chicken glutinous rice which is unmemorable
These are our picks
Food up close. I like the fried shrimp dumplings
what’s dim sum without tea?
Take your pick of teapots
I dont remember the bill being expensive
The egg tarts were good
Crumbly, flaky and custardy
Happy smiles after filled tummies
This is my photographer

Awesome photographs not by me as usual. Check out Roger. I credit him so much that I can memorise his Facebook link already.
