Toh Yuen Part 2 @ PJ Hilton

After catching my breath, lets continue with Part 2.

Whether Toh Yuen was generous or we were just plain gluttons, the food continued to come out from the kitchen.

Remember the Peking Duck? Give it to a peon like me and i will gladly tear up the duck and chew on whatever meat is left.

Give it to Toh Yuen and you will get this..

A minced duck wrapped with cabbage.

A signature dish; The Baked Black Canadian Cod with Honey (200gms) looks like a complete meal by itself sitting on a bed of vegetables. The smooth creamy texture is still unlike the cod i had in UK but for malaysian standards, it is not too bad.

Pan Fried Tenderloin with Chinese BBQ Sauce. True to the cut of meat, this was tender with a capital T. However being chinese cooking, i suspect that the meat was tenderised before cooking it resulting in the almost melt in your mouth texture. The sauce was the familiar chinese BBQ sauce that you get with your deep fried chicken with onion rings ("yeung chong kai").

One of our dining guest is a big fan for chicken and so we left it up to him when it came to chicken. Lemon chicken you say, so it was. Beautifully presented, a slice of lemon in between every tender piece on a bed of lemon sauce. Can't fault such a simple dish.

Just when we were about to burst, Lisa pops in and ask whether we ordered their Sang Har Noodles and commented it was damn awesome. Oh well, it wouldn't be too harmful ordering a single portion right? She was quite right because even when we could barely move i.e. non-existent taste buds, we could all nod in unison and put a thumbs up. The prawn was fresh and the heat of the wok had imparted to the noodles well.

Someone commented that the cod fish was barely enough, so the conclusion was to order another fish. Steam red garoupa with its firm flesh and good soya sauce would have been delightful with some white rice.

How could one do a review without desserts?


The Black Sesame Tong Yuen was a brilliant ending to the meal. The fragant coating and filling was a joy to bite into.

The bird nest was to soothe our stomachs that had been working overtime from the very first dish.

Prices are not cheap; exotic items and well cooked items demand premium prices and i would not be surprised if you splurge RM100-RM150 per pax for dinner. Brilliant service comes from the experienced waitresses and cooking staff. As it is halal, a near perfect place to entertain everyone and anyone especially our Muslim colleagues and friends.
