The few times I went to Kuala Lumpur, I found myself coming back to this Taiwanese “fast food” restaurant, Fong Lye. Their dining concept is similar to Japanese bento sets; a dish of meat/fish comes with a bowl of rice, some condiments and chicken herbal soup. As such, it is an ideal place for business lunch/ quick lunch. The tasteful ambiance also sets the mood for an enjoyable dining experience; each table is furnished with comfortable sofa which you can sink in after a long day of shopping.
Sweet Potato Ball (RM5.30)
Once seated, you write your order on the paper and pencil provided and a waiter soon whisks it to the kitchen. For starters, I got the sweet potato ball which is extremely chewy on the exterior and yet it is airy on the inside. I can distinctly taste the delectable sweet potato and given its small size, you can pop it in your mouth.
Chicken with Scallion Sauce (RM19.80)
On my last trip, I decided to order the Chicken with Scallion Sauce for my entrée. The chicken meat is soft and the sauce is aromatic and with a dip of chili (yes, you read that right! Chili in Malaysia is as much sweeter as it is spicy in Indonesia so it is I am tolerable), it is one scrumptious dish.
Condiments (Part of Set)
The condiments that came with the dish are mushrooms with fried tofu cooked in soya sauce, some greens and Taiwanese version of fried corn croquette. Unfortunately, I did not manage to take a good picture of the soup but I highly recommend that you try some as it is very soothing after your meal.
Food here is definitely affordable given the portion of food that they serve. Only pet peeve is that they accept cash payment only. After you are done with your food, you are expected to pay at the counter. Even then, you get charged with 10% service fee which is baffling and unfair. Nonetheless, I would still come back for the food quality is consistent and good value. They have branches in Midvalley City Shop, Imbi Shop, Sri Hartamas
