After a while of walking in the mall, EL suggested to eat at Shihlin Taiwan Snacks. At first I was reluctant to agree because the place is usually flooded with people. But when we reached the shop, the queue was long only for those takeaways. The bench seats were unoccupied, so we made our way in. All the comfortable seats were taken, the bench seats would make you feel like a twisted piece of washing cloth after you finish your food.

... soy drink, cost RM2, same as mineral water. It's very milky until the very last drop.

... boneless crispy chicken with pepper and chili powder. Yummy! But Uncle Bob's nicer, which is only RM5/piece compared to this RM6/piece.

... the infamous Taiwan oysters mee suah. The Taiwanese eat it with only spoon, without chopsticks.

This outlet was the very first outlet of Shihlin Taiwan Snacks in Malaysia. Looking from the cramped space, it would be quite unappetizing if one was to dine there. That’s why I never had it until a couple of years later after it was opened. My first visit was to the outlet in The Gardens. My first time having it, the oyster mee suah was so so. But this time, it tasted really good. No wonder the business were so good.

The boneless chicken meat was nice, but it was laden with way too much powder. It has more powder than chicken meat itself. If you bite on it, you could see layers in it, where majority of it was formed by un-fried portion of the powder. I’d usually pick them out and leave only the crispy part and the chicken meat. The Tempura was not so nice though, despite it was served with chili powder to complement the taste. Proof of some cheap food that was overpriced.

There were other stuff there as well, such as the rice set lunch for RM10, which includes a drink. Perhaps I’ll give it a try next time.
