Dinner At TAO Cuisine Penang Times Square

To celebrate Andy's golden day, we went to Tao Cuisine in Berjaya Times Square in Penang. This is our first time going there but before I booked this, I have made some "research" on their website.. hahaaa... (this mom is very kiasu one!)

Being "kiasu" kids and I reached the place before 6.30pm to grab the "early birds" discount rate.. hehehe... I think it cost around RM65 per person.

This Tao consists of mainly Japanese food with a wide range of choices either from the menu or buffet style. So..what did we attack on? Mainly fish.. cod and salmon.. they are really fresh, just as what is written in their website.. quality and freshness!
Ambience was beautiful... not brightly lit up..
I didn't take much pictures of the food...
too busy being a "glutton" then!! 
mainly salmon... grilled scallops...
teriyaki salmon.. 
cod fish... 
among the choices we ordered from the menu..
plus herbal soup, soft crabs, fresh oysters... etc etc.... 
oh gosh! 
Let's not think of the cholesterol and the weight gain!
A picture before we really start "attacking" the food..
After that, no time to take pictures!
Hands too busy and mouths too full...

Tao cuisine


  1. I have tried Tao at Auto City, never been to this one though.

    Nice picts Claire~

  2. RM65 person? *faints* And that's the discounted price...what's the normal? That's a Chinese place, right? Food does not seem Japanese to me. Abalone!!! Can't eat that anymore...ever since I lost all my molars!!! Sobsssssss!!!!!!!

  3. Wow, awesome food. Cod fish looks so fresh. Love it heaps. Nice family gathering.

  4. Bananaz tak Tao pergi la..Wow lovely cod fish caught my attention. Semua seafood OK for Bananaz who is on a 'seefood' diet chiak whatever he sees. Can Bananaz be your godson his birthday approaching very soon?

  5. i like Tao Cuisine but haven try Penang one before~

    Regards, (A Growing Teenager Diary) ..

  6. waaa....worth eating and you make me hungry and salivating going to bed...wrong timing to read this post;p

  7. scrumptious dinner for the whole family..nice

  8. hayley: i heard the auto city one is not bad too...

    irene: once awhile fine to go.. hahaha..

    stp: this abalone not the rubbery type .. sure u can eat if i can.. mine also same problem.. teeth not strong already but this type is digestible.. :)

    bananaz: Call me kai ma on your birthday.. hahahaa..

    elin: one day i take you there.. ok? :)

    wenn: yeah.. scrumptious.. and sumptuous too! :)

  9. I have never seen abalone till now! Only the shells that they make into pretty jewelry. But I LOVE the pictures of you and Andy and your girl!!!

  10. we also have TAO over here, but of course more expensive than RM65 lah.. without the early bird discounts how much you were supposed to pay??

    hmmmm, come to think about it, why should early bird given discounts?? they have more time to eat.. only late comers should have given discounts since they have less time to eat.. make sense?? :D

  11. ginny: Abalone are expensive over here and I believe those are from the tin cans and not those fresh from the sea.. :)

    sk: now that you asked me, I am giving it some thoughts.. why leh? hmmmm...something to ponder.. must ask those studying business strategies people.. :)

  12. well i think those were pretty yummy foods but quite few tho hahaha

  13. never been there before. Mahal wor. But this one special occasion so tak apa la :)

  14. kathy: yeah.. once a blue moon.. :)

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
