Dain Ti Hill (代官山)
Posted by: Wen Ching In: Fusion Food
I have to start writing this post by telling all readers that this meal was eaten almost one year ago. So there might be chances that the food and prices might be slightly different now. Anyway, we first discovered this restaurant after watching a movie in Pavilion.
We went on to take a look at the menu and learned that this restaurant serves fusion Chinese food. Sounds interesting to us. But something better happened, it was stated that Citibank card holders will be able to get a 50% discount from the restaurant at that period. Without second thoughts, we popped into the restaurant.
The restaurant was packed with customers. The interior was well-designed and modern looking, the seats were comfortable and we even got a table with a good view.
This is the oat milk tea (胚芽奶茶) that we ordered. Priced at RM10, it was good, not too sweet but with a very light taste of oat, I personally like it very much. I even ordered it again when we had lunch with Ai Wei
in Dain Ti Hill, which reminds me of something, Phooi Fun
, you were so busy, haha, so we didn’t call you along, dont envy! Haha!
Since it’s half price, we decided to have a heavy dinner. Haha! So we started with their potato pumpkin salad (黄金薯泥) priced at RM9. Food was well-presented in this restaurant. It was served cold, tasted very creamy and rich in pumpkin taste, slowly melted in your mouth. We definitely love it.
Next up, we had a baked rice roll topped with prawn, mango, cheese, sauce and mayonnaise (黄色恋人) at RM22. Again, it was nicely presented. But unfortunately, we didn’t really enjoy the taste of it. It looks like sushi, perhaps we were bias, we preferred the rice to be a little vinegared so that it would blend well with the prawn and mango. Nevertheless, the ingredients were fresh.
Knowing that both of us love spicy stuff, we can’t resist to order this spicy chicken with pine nuts (松子辣味滑鸡) to satisfy our taste buds. Priced at RM16, this chicken was delicious, not too spicy but it was crispy and sour, very nice when eaten with rice.
We also had a mixed seafood in hot pot (西西里海鲜纸火锅) for RM22. The soup tasted a little like tomato soup, it was sweet and decent. The prawns and other seafood were fresh, reminded me of Japanese kami nabe. This might be a good try too.
Lastly, we had a green tea sauce and red bean ice-cream and baked sweet potato (抹茶红豆冰火霜淇淋) for RM12. Ice-cream with warm sweet potato is definitely new to us. The ice-cream and sweet potato were good, but we were just not sure if they are a good match.
Nevertheless we had a great dinner. Service was quite good and we totally love the ambience and food. But we do have to admit that it was rather pricey, if not for the discount, it would’ve been a very expensive dinner. Dain Ti Hill also have outlets in Shanghai and Taiwan. It would worth giving it a try if you love unique Chinese fusion food.
