Finally Wendy's

I've always wanted to try it ... Wendy's. Though it came to Malaysian shores quite sometime ago, I never found time to visit them. I was wondering what the hype was all about? Fresh food, rich milkshakes and just soft golden brown fries? I've got to try it to believe it. 

I am a sucker for McD's Chicken McDeluxe and thus wanted to try the Spicy Chicken burger, but instead I tried the shrimp burger. Pretty hard to imagine but worth to be adventurous. I super sized my set ... and it only costed me RM 13.60 plus tax. 

Well, the coke was refreshing as always and the fries were soft yet crunchy on the outside. What I like about it is that they don't put in the odds and ends of the potato. What they serve is the real string of fries. And the burger .... weird as it sounds, it actually tastes good. The bun is soft and sprinkled with ground sesame. And the patty? Well, I don't know what goes in there but it tastes a little like Okonomiyaki, Japanese pizza. There were chunks of shrimp in it .. fresh and crunchy, and breaded and fried ... the only thing I can say is YUM!

Well, next on my Wendy's list is nuggets!

Shih Lin Taiwanese Snacks

After a long day of walking and shopping, you just want to plonk your self on a bench somewhere and have a light snack. Something not too heavy and neat enough to share with your shopping buddy. And the perfect option is Shih Lin's Taiwanese street snack.

You've got to try the Oyster Mee Sua. There is this tinge of sour yet rich taste in the soup. Good to the last drop. The noodle is just tender and the chicken meat is shredded so fine that its perfect for digestion. I never liked mee sua as I always associated it to being sick (my mum forced me to eat mee sua when ever I had fever when I was young, and though I recovered, I had to continue on mee sua diet for a week or so). But this dish ....its tasty. Only RM 6 a bowl ... with oysters in it too! It gives me the sensation of having Sharks fin soup (though you should NEVER eat Shark's fin soup. Say NO to it)

I'm a fan of pasar malam food. And for those of you who knows Uncle Bob's fried chicken .... I'll queue for hours for it. They serve it here too .... but Shih Lin's version is crunchier on the outside and more tender in the insides. The is actually lots of meat in the fillet ... and making every bite worth your money. Now, they are having a Lunch Box for only RM 10. A plate of rice with special sweet sauce topping, their very own Crispy Fried Chicken and tofu with oyster sauce. This combo comes with a bottle of soya milk as well ....

Well, my hands were itchy and I did have some Tempura seafood. See those thingy-ies on top of the chicken, well I added them on myself. Its chewy and full of flavor. Definitely worth getting a bag and muching away as you browse your favourite shopping alley.
