Xian Ding Wei @ Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall, Petaling Jaya

I visited this Taiwanese tea room-style restaurant called Xian Ding Wei at Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall the other day. Frankly, i hardly came across Taiwanese cuisine in Klang Valley so i just went in and gave it a try.

The restaurant is located on the lower ground floor of Sunway Pyramid New Wing. You can opt for the indoor dining room or the dining area outside where you get a view of the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park (not much of a view actually).

Nice hanging lamp.

The server led me to a comfortable couch beside the glass wall, overlooking the front part of the restaurant. The lights were extremely dim, thus projecting a soothing feel as you sip your tea.

Nice chopsticks. The metal at the tip of the chopsticks makes it a bit heavier than those normal chopsticks. I like the feeling of holding it - i guessed it's the "firm grip" which interests me.

I ordered Sauced Noodle with Minced Pork (炸酱拌面条) @ RM9.90. The noodles were springy. The pungent sauce was mildly spicy but a tad too oily. Taste wise, it was just alright to me.

I also ordered Special Chicken Roll (五香鸡卷) @ RM7.90. This is said to be their house specialty. It was nice. I'm not sure what is in the chicken roll but it sure taste delicious!

The only drawback is that they used plastic cup to serve Chinese Tea. Not a good practice for an up-scale restaurant like Xian Ding Wei.
