Not that we haven't gone past this shop before, but Taiping food brought over to be sold in KL? You can't blame me for having some doubts in them, really. But finally we gave it a try on a night we wanted some light dinner (which didn't exactly end up to me that 'light') and we are so in love that we have gone back too many times after that!
The first time we were there, Deardo actually tried their Prawn Noodles but it wasn't anything to shout about so we shall skip that and jump to the main stuff here...
Now here's the thing, both Deardo and I really are crazy over their Hor Fun soup here because it tastes EXACTLY the same as the ones you can find in many restaurants/stalls in Taiping. That distinctive taste that you can only find in a Chicken Hor Fun in Taiping, you'll get it here in Taipan, no kidding! The taste of the soup and every single ingredients, including that Sambal Belacan that is OMG so yummy and it makes us feel so at home!!! Deardo who normally doesn't put any chili in his food actually wants that Sambal Belacan every time he goes there! Ahhhh... So yummey~!!!
We were really skeptical at first but man that dish turned up to be at least 85% the same as the ones in Taiping! Only thing that makes a difference I think would be the absence of the Char Siew since Thiam Kee here decided to go pork-free. But the flavour, the gravy and everything else tasted just perfect!
|What makes two Taiping Lang so happy? A meal that literally brought them home! :)|
If you are a Taiping Lang in KL this is a place you must go and if you are not from Taiping but isn't afraid of trying out new flavours, here's my honest recommendation! Ahhhh... Damn I need to go back again for another Chicken Hor Fun fix soon!
