Food Republic, Pavilion - Thye Hong, Little Taiwan, Desserts

Add: Food Republic - Lot 1.41.00, Level 1, Pavilion, 168 Bukit Bintang KL.
Opening hours: 10am - 10pm

Stall: Thye Hong
Item: Fried prawn noodle ala Singapore @ RM$7.50
Verdict: Really good! So similar to the one served at Newton Circus and Atria (Orchard Rd, Singapore). Deeelicious, love the noodles, gravy and sambal.

Thye Hong is quite legendary, in just a couple of minutes, I found the following write-ups...
(Pavilion, KL) Thye Hong at Food Republic is easy to spot thanks to the straw hats the staff wear. The menu is simple and includes dishes like fried kway teow, omelette oyster, fried carrot cake and the speciality, fried prawn noodle.
(Singapore) Wisma Atria Food Republic – Thye Hong Prawn Mee The food paradise that rests on the top floor of Wisma Atria Shopping Centre certainly boasts a cornucopia of stalls serving mouth-watering food, but the stall that stands head and shoulders above the rest is Thye Hong Prawn Mee.
The queue was absurdly long, reaching all the way to the opposite end of the stalls before looping back to end at the stall itself. The cook, however, prepares an enormous wok of prawn noodles each time, allowing the queue to move surprisingly fast.
(Singapore) This hawker stall's fried hokkien prawn mee is so good that I sometimes find myself craving for a plate in the middle of the night. Sounds crazy but it's true, this hawker's noodles are that good. I've seen them fry an entire batch from scratch and what amazes me is the cook's sense of estimation. He throws in a bit of this and that and viola, you've got noodles that speak volumes.
Time for me to rush to the Newton hawker centre to get myself another plate of this famous hawker food. Add: # 01- 58, Newton Hawker Centre, 500 Clemenceau Avenue North, Singapore

Stall: Little Taiwan
Item: Stewed beef rice (Niu roh fan) @ RM$4.90
Verdict: Decent ... tasty beef gravy and minced beef! But I so miss the variety served in Taipei, Taiwan. Is this the cheapest "main course" in Pavilion? Perhaps so!

And finally ... some "tong suey" to wash it all down.
Stall: Desserts
Item: Ginko nut soup with Beancurd (Fu chuk yee mai) @ RM$3.50
Verdict: Nearly tasted like sugar water, and the beancurd / fu chuk was well too coarse.
