I found this set of photos in my external hard disk and realised that I forgot to blog about this place - it's about 6 months late!
So, to be fair, I won't go into too much detail unless I'm absolutely sure.
Anyway, as you know, I love trying out new places. So, during one of my weekly quality time/ shopping trips with my mum, we walked around the corner of the new wing (where Giant used to be) to look for a lunch venue when the bright, chirpy colours of Little Taiwan caught our eyes:
To my dismay (after being seated), upon closer inspection it turned out the this eatery is Halal (Not a smidgen of pork in sight!). Still, it was comfortable, and there were some interesting items on the menu so we stayed:
My mum ordered the Claypot loh shuee fun (RM 10.90+):
The serving size was big enough and the texture of the noodles were pretty good (quite smooth) but overall, it was just ok because it was semi-drowning in a sweet-ish dark sauce.
(Watery texture, mostly sweet, but slightly salty at the same time)
I had the Spicy Beef Noodles (RM 11.90+), which is supposed to be a Taiwanese speciality:
It was fairly spicy and had beef, as advertised.... but it was also very very oily.
No, really. I tried spooning out the excess oil, then gave up eventually. Here's what I did manage to extract:
As mentioned before, the serving size was pretty big so we didn't manage to try any of the desserts... but well, I don't think I would have taken the risk after our mains...
I have read online/ heard that some of the other dishes (like the deep fried Taiwanese styled chicken) and bubble tea can be nice though, so maybe we just chose the wrong things that day.
So it's: Modern, bright ambience, ok range of non-porky Taiwanese food, reasonable prices for shopping center setting BUT really, the taste is only just ok....
