Shihlin Taiwan Street Snack

Normally i don't blog about food i eat. I always wanted to, but somehow, i never post anything about food i ate and restaurant that i went to. But tonight, after eating the food, i decide to blog about it....

Okie.. here goes my first food blog.... 

I went to Gurney today with one of my friend. Just as I reach the 5th floor car park, I saw someone holding a Big Apple plastic bag with a box in it. So i turn to my friend and say.... "Hey, they have Big Apple here. I wanna get!" (i was craving and dreaming about glaze donut ever since i download a whole set of donut icons for my mac).

my donut icon collection

So we went to the basement to take a look at Big Apple. We found the shop and like usual donut shops in KL, there was quite a queue but not really that long, long queue like the ones at JCO, Pavilion. So my friend and I then decide that maybe we can come back later for the donuts after our western food dinner which is our initial plan for dinner - Western food with fries. So I turn around and saw this shop...

NO it is not Big Apple food review. I am blogging about the shop opposite....

Shihlin Taiwan Street Snack!!!


After trying their XXL crispy chicken twice at Mines (when i was working there for 3 weeks), I told my friend that the food they serve is nice. So we then decide to eat at Shihlin. From western to eastern dinner...


when the food arrive, I am EXTREMELY disappointed!! 

The handmade oyster mee sua is not that nice (i curi a few sip from my friend's), the chicken floss is not really that fantastic and the XXL chicken (which is one of their main dish), is just.... disappointing. They gave me the whole XXL piece and i went 

 -.-

So my friend ask the guy to cut it for us, and he say, "Sorry, we are not suppose to cut the chicken."

-.-"""""""""""""""""  

SERIOUSLY?

WHY CAN'T THEY CUT THE FREAKING XXL CRISPY CHICKEN?

I remember clearly the ones that i ate at Mines was cut into slices and they are very very nice and crispy and spicy... but the one i got here... come in a one BIG piece. How am i supposed to eat it? and how am i supposed to share with my friend? and worst of all, the FLOUR of the crispy chicken is soooo thick that you can't taste the chicken but only the taste of the flour itself and the flour had this weird water smell (let's hope it is not from the T). Another thing about the crispy chicken is... it is supposed to be boneless, but the one i got, IS NOT!! haiya... i forgot to snap some pictures... was too piss off with the food so i forgot to snap snap... 


a snapshot from www.shihlinsnacks.com.tw

Look at the image above. It says that that it is supposed to be BONELESS but why the one i had is NOT?

So basically, the quality of food they are serving here at Gurney Plaza outlet is very very BAD comparing to the ones I had at Mines Shopping Fair at KL!

The only item that I am satisfied of from the food i order is the VSoy soya bean drink which is NOT a shihlin product :P

Verdict: 0.1 / 5

can't wait for my Mizi mushroom soup tomorrow night!!!!

HAHA, let the person who just been to the real Taiwan's Shihlin night market 2 days ago to continue with your blog post :P

Well, been to Shihlin night market 2 nights ago and the only food that taste good is taiwan sausages. I can't deny that the origin of crispy chicken is from Shihlin and consider the most famous, even some of the Taiwanese from other provinces far away would come here to buy it, and there's only one stall selling it and you have to make a long queue to get it, even queue in the rain!

My dad then decided to go for the queue to get a taste of it, see whether it's really that nice or not. In the end, everyone of us were very DISAPPOINTED! Damn, even KFC is better and cheaper! Of cause, over here... they never cut it into slices as well, that's their original way. I did snapshot the stall, will share it with you later when I'm back :P

I never know there's Shihlin Snack shop in Gurney Plaza..lol, but I think the most delicious Taiwan dishes in Malaysia is 600cc. Their food taste really good! :D
