When was the last time you play hookie, just to spend some time with your loved ones? I don’t make it a habit to play hookie from work, but there are times that you need to let go of things and live a little. It was a working day, but it happens that I have been invited by a pretty young lady to sample some delights from Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks in OneUtama. I was contemplating on whether to accept the invitation or not as it was kinda last minute, but in the end, I thought… hey… screw work. I’ve been slaving enough.Things are pretty stressful for me. I deserve a rest and it’s been awhile since I did something spontaneous. It was my lucky day. The hubby was around and was heading to the same direction as I am, and so, I dragged both of my boys with me to pig out with me. 😀 Wow. It’s been awhile since the three of us had lunch together.
Neway, our host, Sharon, was practically starving as she haven’t had lunch, and had taken the liberty to order practically everything off from the menu for us, and the food were served within minutes upon when my family and I arrived. How cool is that? I discovered first hand that despite of the perpetual crowd, Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks is pretty much efficient. Food were served in timely manner. That’s definitely a plus point there.
These is what the lovely Ms. Sharon ordered for us. Happy Rice Box, Handmade Oyster Mee Sua, Crispy Floss Egg Crepe and of course, the all time bestseller in Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks, XXL Crispy Chicken.
Feeling ravenous as I’ve skipped breakfast, I attacked this Happy Rice Box set with fervor. The fluffy rice was drizzled generously with light soya sauce and topped with spicy, crispy chicken cutlet with Japanese egg tofu on the side. A wholesome meal, perfect for those who are rushing during lunch hour.
XXL Crispy Chicken did it’s name justice. It was really huge. Priced at just RM6.50 per piece, the fried chicken is definitely a steal.Adeptly fried and perfectly seasoned with salt, pepper and paprika powder, the fried chicken was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. I felt so guilty for having these…you see, I’ve been trying to eat healthily and therefore trying my best to avoid oily stuff, but heck… these are worth every calories and perhaps pimples that will be breaking out later. 😛
Not a big fan of oysters, but seeing my husband enjoying the bowl of Handmade Oyster Mee Sua tempted me for a few slurp.The mee sua came in thick soup broth, some shredded oysters and shredded chicken meat. There is also some chilli paste on the side. I was a bit doubtful about it, but it tasted really good and I enjoyed every spoonful of it.
Crispy Floss Egg Crepe. The crepe is a bit like our locally stretched roti canai except it’s thinner, crispier and coated with eggs. There’s chicken floss bedded in the crepe rolls. Plum sauce was drizzled all over the egg crepe for extra flavours. A tad disappointing for me as I was expecting these to be savoury. It was surprisingly sweet, and though I did not had seconds of these, my son polished them off. My little man have sweet tooth and apparently, these won his heart that day. 😀
All of us were still ravenous after all the rice, fried chicken, mee sua, and crepe, and so, we ordered this from the menu. New product from Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks, Crispy Salt pepper Mushroom. In conjunction with it’s 10th anniversary, Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks has recently launched it’s Crispy Salt Pepper Mushroom. My son and I are a huge fan of crispy stuff like this, and so, naturally, we enjoyed the mushrooms. Each golden mushrooms is coated with light batter, and it’s positively addictive. 😛
Priced at merely Rm5.50 per bag, these highly addictive mushrooms makes not only a great dish during tea time, but great companion during movie marathons too. These are available in 5 different flavours; Original, Kimchi, Seaweed, Sour Cream and Wasabi. We tried the Original and Seaweed flavour. Both are great, but I personally recommend the Seaweed ones. The taste is much more distinctive, in my humble opinion. Yet to try other flavours, but will do so on my next visits, definitely.
Being a magnanimous host and knowing how much I can eat, Sharon asked us if we would like to try theÂ Seafood tempura and Sweet Plum Potato Fries, but we were already full. 😛 So that adds two more items I would be trying on my next visits. 😛
