Xi-Men-Ting @ South City Plaza

It was another day out with Christine again. The mission this day was to ‘transform’ my long wavy hair to a trendy stylish one. And here again, Christine brought me over for a new hair cut. Thanks, Leng.

Before that, we were loitering while figuring out what to have for lunch as South City Plaza seems empty nowadays. A lot of shops and merchandisers have moved out from this complex and some shops left emptied.

Something came into Christine’s mind. She told me that she dined in this place years ago and the food was not bad. We had ourselves seated too although we were unsure if they could maintain the same standard as years ago.

Xi Men Ting is one of the well-known places in Taiwan with lots of hip young and adults hanging around. While this restaurant named as Xi-Men-Ting, I think the Chinese food served are more or less like those in Taiwan?!

Here was the iced jasmine tea at Rm 2.50 for me to quench my thirst. No sugar added and pure in jasmine flavour.

We ordered a Chicken Drum Steak with Noodles 炸鸡腿面 priced at Rm 7.90 which came in very large portion. Look at that, the drumstick was well marinated and fried to its perfection. We both had 2 big pieces. The fried chicken was a bit oily for me but definitely fit the huge bowl of noodles.

Besides noodles, there were minced pork and bak choy too. As for the soup, it was a bit like shoyu soup (like those Japanese Shoyu Ramen but a milder than the Jap type). Gosh, just Rm 7.90 but we couldn’t finish the noodles. The serving was really big even we had it shared.

We also had Steam Pork Dumpling 白玉水饺 (8pcs) priced at Rm 8.00. These were healthy as they were steamed and not fried or oil-cooked type (into Gyoza). Each dumpling was packed with amount of minced pork and the fragrant-flowered garlic - Garlic chives. Hmmm… the dumplings were yummy with the shredded ginger in vinegar.

That’s the end of our lunch and I was full up after the lunch and during my ‘transformation’ :P

This was great! The portion is super super huge, and way too much. I think there is another Xi Men Ting in another shopping complex, but this wins hands down..
