Shihlin Taiwan Street Snack, One Utama

Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks is a small shop that's located near the entrance to the TGV Cinema in One Utama's old wing. The whole shop can probably sit only about 10 people so take away is your best bet and the thing is their food is very well suited to 'tapau' after all they are a snack place.

I've always been intruiged by their Oyster Mee Sua and finally got the chance to try it out last Sunday. The Oyster Mee Sua comes in a small bowl so don't expect to it to fill your stomach. The Mee Sua is preboiled with the (yummy) thick soup. When they serve it to you they simply scoop it out of the pot and garnish it with chicken slices, some vegetable and a few oysters. There's also a helping of sambal belacan perhaps to cater for local tastes.

I can't really make it out but I suspect the soup is made with lots of oyster sauce because it certainly looks like it is. The Mee Sua is soft but still retains its texture despite the fact that it must have been in the pot for some time. Perhaps this is a feature of Mee Sua. I wouldn't know since I don't eat it very often. I'm looking forward to having another bowl soon :)

Great stuff but definitely not filling.

Besides the noodles they also serve a very huge looking fried chicken fillet and some tempura vegetables. I must say the chicken looks pretty impressive and I'm tempted to try them out next time. So far every food item they sell goes for RM4.80.

It's a Singaporean company by the way.. supposedly they paid a Taiwanese chef a lot of money to teach them recipes! I think you can google for the story. They also have a website with all their Singapore locations.

The fried chicken fillet is nice and crispy, but abit diff 2 eat since they don cut it for you. i requested them 2 cut it 4 me,but they only cut it into 2. The chicken fillet is similar 2 the 1 selling @SS2 pasar malam(uncle bob) but it's thinner & nicer...

Once again, I doubt of KL ppl has good taste. I'd lunch in this restaurant with another friend, we are both from perak.

We totally disagreed with all the compliment about the food there. We had Mee sua, Tempura and the XXL chicken fillets. Other than the Mee sua is still edible, the rest, as recommanded by u guys, hav too heavy of pepper.

For those with good taste, u will ever been there for at most once.
