Small kiosks or stalls inside shopping malls are indeed popular in Klang Valley with the evidence of long queue and fully occupied dining tables. This is what I saw when we stop by Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks for a quick lunch (it’s in between lunch and dinner time actually) in Ikano Power Centre last month.
Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks has more than 10 franchise outlets in KL, PJ, Malacca, Penang and Johor, not to mention Singapore and Indonesia. The name was taken from the famous Shihlin Taiwan Night Market in Taipei due to its popularity among locals to search for night snacks (Taiwanese love to snack when watching TV!), so the food served here are re-created from the snacks found in Shihlin Night Market.
The most famous is the hand made Oyster Mee Sua, comprising a thick stock made of five core ingredients, imported hand made mee sua, fresh oysters and shredded chicken. I didn’t order this as I’m not a fan of oysters but my dining companions seem to love it a lot.
Instead of mee sua, I had the XXL Crispy Chicken Rice Set or Happy! Ricebox Set which comes with a huge piece of deep fried crispy chicken fillet dusted with chilli powder, cold white beancurd, century egg, special sauce, rice and drink. The chicken fillet was neither too dry nor juicy, just alright but the sauce is good! It complements the beancurd and century egg very well.
What do you call a meal in between lunch and dinner?

Have a nice weekend!
