The owner of the cafe was friendly and he introduced some of their authentic Taiwanese dishes for us…

*  Taiwanese scallion pancake – ???

*  Taiwanese beef noodle – ???????
*  Chicken chop rice – ???
*  Taiwanese minced pork homemade noodles – ????? (recommended)
*  Pot sticker – ?? (recommended)
*  Rainbow dumplings – ???? (recommended)

Really appreciated for the recommendation, we like some of the dishes very much! But some were mediocre…

The Taiwanese scallion pancake – ??? was served slightly dry and the scallion was too little, but the sauce was nice.

The chicken chop rice ??? served with vegetables. If the chicken chop serve in more moist then it will be perfect…

The taste of the minced pork homemade noodle ????? was ‘authentic’ and delicious! It served the similar taste that I had in Taipei, oh…this noodle really made me missed my days in Taipei…

The pot sticker – ?? (or Chinese pan fried dumplings) was served in juicy and tasty! It was not too dried, we all like it! Another recommended!

Rainbow dumplings ???? was Perfect! Each of dumpling skin was not artificial colouring but it was from the natural resources…natural, seaweed, yam, pandan and others. The fillings were fragrant and fresh, some with minced pork and some with chives or seasonal vegetables.
Each of them had different taste where you can enjoy the delicious dumplings one-by-one slowly…
Recommended and must try!

Overall, the foods were nice and tasty. Some of them need some adjustment to suit the public taste, or it just my personal opinions. But the bottom line is…the price is very reasonable! You may say, it’s cheap and good! Go and try it out yourself with all these affordable Taiwanese Cuisines at Tai Zhi Wei ???, Taman Sutera Utama.

Beside the foods, I would like to highlight the lemon juice. The lemon they use was not the local normal lemon, the taste was super refreshing! It’s a good way to cool you down under the hot weather.

Before our dinenr start, I was really enjoyed the making of the Teppanyaki dishes with the ‘kin-kin…kiang-kiang’ sound generated by the rough iron plate…
They are also the ‘First’ and ‘Only’ Teppanyaki Restaurant out of the Japanese Restaurant in Johor Bahru.

The seafood fried rice was special and it had a unique taste compare with the ordinary fried rice available in JB. It served with plenty of seafood and it was worth for the price of RM7.90 each.

Most of their Ala Carte dishes are served with the green vegetables and bean sprout. Let me show you the making of the Mixed Seafood Set B, served with cod fish, scallop and 2 tiger prawn.

All seafood and other dishes were fried on the Teppayaki with the original taste. The cook only added some pepper and little oil on it…
Before the seafoods ready, the vege and the bean sprout were stand-by by the side…

Once everything is ready, it had a Nice presentation on the Mixed Seafood Set.
The procedure was repeated for every Ala Carte dishes…

 photo IMG_9411_zpsc5e0a116.jpg

The Mixed Seafood set was definitely worth of the price – RM38.90.

The Thai Tomyam was served on bubbling broth and different from the diluted version that easily available in JB. It had a Nice aroma with the rich tomyam flavor.

The above dishes also accompany by a Portuguese Style Baked Fish. It was unexpected tasty!
I had the first Portuguese Baked Fish was at the Portuguese Seafood Village at Malacca, and I wanted to try the taste out of Malacca and finally I found it here!

That was a Nice Mushroom!

The last will be everyone was waiting for…The Aussie Wagyu Beef.

 photo IMG_9469_zps941165bf.jpg

 photo IMG_9487_zpsac48dfbe.jpg

The Aussie Wagyu finished on our table in less than 5 minutes! That was a Delicoius Wagyu Beef! We all like it very much! With the price of only RM88.90 (200g).

Except the New Zealand Sliced Beef was served well done, because it was too thin but all the Angus and Wagyu beef were served in the Medium or Medium rare doneness. Luckily the Wagyu was served on the last dish, otherwise I believe everyone will not interested on others dishes anymore! Haha!

Our Beef and Wine party last for about 4 hours and everyone was very satisfied with the dishes from Taroko Teppanyaki. They are good for the beef and even other dishes like seafood and their 5 types of fried rice.Worth for another visit!

Do try out if you happen at the Sutera Utama area or after your shopping from the Sutera Mall, you might like the different method of fried dishes. Especially for the beef lover!

We will definitely back for the Teppanyaki again!
