Fong Lye Taiwan Restaurant, Kuala Lumpur…Atmosphere: 3 stars. Food: 1 star

Ever go to a restaurant after seeing that it’s absolutely packed with a crowd waiting outside only to find that it was quite bad? I have to admit my expectations were higher than they probably should’ve been. This pricey Taiwanese restaurant is located in The Gardens @ Midvalley.

Taiwan braised beef noodle set meal was not spicy, assured our waitress. Not spicy? It was hot as hell. We had to change it for something else. Nothing we ordered were good. The Sesame chicken mee sua set meal and the Taiwan style pig’s intestines mee sua were really not amazing.

They’re pricey for the food they serve. The service and delivery isn’t good. Atmosphere: 3 stars. Food: 1 star. I wouldn’t eat here again, even if it’s the only Food and beverage outlet in the entire place.

PS. by the way, it’s cash only terms. Credit cards not accepted. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

I Love Yoo! at Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur….traditional porridge and dough fritter with a modern twist

Let’s cut to the chase…

There are 2 types of porridge served here, dried scallops and oyster peanut porridge. The porridge is rich, smooth and heartwarming. Crunchy ‘you tiao (yao char kuai); freshly made ‘tow foo far’ – well-loved and familiar Chinese snacks; I LOVE YOO aims to give food lovers a taste of the traditional, with a modern twist. Everything was yummy.

I haven’t felt this enthusiastic about an outlet in a long time. I’d highly recommend “I love Yoo” to whoever’s looking for a quick snack. It’s good and the staff are ultra friendly, and really the food just speaks for itself.  Overall, definitely recommended

Point to note: I’ve tried the same stuff in I Love Yoo at The Gardens, Mid valley. They don’t taste as good. That’s the true truth and I am still saying it as it is.
