Food Crawl at Starhill's Feast Village @ RM3.60++/dish - Shook! & Luk Yu Tea House & Fisherman’s Cove & Pak Loh Chiu Chow

Feast Village is a cacophony of sights. Like an eccentric and quirky person there is no consistency, no logic, reason and symmetry. Like this place or hate it. At a price of RM3.60 ++ per dish its value for money. Drop by from 3pm - 6pm for a feast. But buyers beware. The 3-6 menu is limited, smaller, with lesser sides but still packed enough fire-power if you choose right. Another thing, the service is professional to a fault in Shook! as the wait staff are probably used to the fine dining crowd and not trawlers. The lack of warmth and smiles gave me the feeling that they just can't wait for the 6pm dateline to arrive.

Personally 2 restaurants are worth visiting and do allocate more time at these, Pak Loh Chiu Chow and Shook!. Fisherman's Cove is ok while Luk Yu is a no no! Offer is available till June 30th. Further savings if you car pool. Parking may come up to more than RM10. Inquiries: 03-27823855.

Luk Yu Tea House - all our dishes fail the taste test.

Pak Loh Chiu Chow Restaurant - Mostly good especially their pork dishes.
Pork Cake/Paste with salted fish powder. Excellent. Get your nose assaulted by the pungent top quality "Mui Heong" salted fish.
A true test of the chef in a Chinese restaurant. Did the Fried Rice order comes right? This one passed the test. Fluffy, with individual grains, fragrant and full bodied.Another porky dish. Preserved pork in pork. The usual Chiu Chow condiments were found inside. Bear with the saltiness.
Shook! offered the best in terms of varieties in fusion food, desserts and drinks. Allocate more time and linger in its beautiful ambiance.
Good food galore. Shrimp Salad!The best deal - a huge sausage. Passed the taste test with flying colours. Will cost double digits under normal circumstances.
A weak try on Japanese. Soup base was weak. Two pieces of vege and 2 pieces of salmon tempura.
Good deal. Flew out from the oven. Fresh, crisp and as fragrant as it could be.Do reserved some stomach space for some good desserts and drinks.

The fried rice test is the most important, agreed! Glad it passed!

P.S. Nice new blog design! :)

The pork paste with salted fish powder looks interesting. And pizza!! I haven't had a good one in a while.

Like LFB, I'm liking the new blog layout! ;)

somehow this Rm3.60 thing failed to catch my interest. I mean, wht to expect for RM3.60 rite?
Stil I do think Starhill (for rep's sake) would maintain a certain level of std.
Anyhow,even for my media tour the otr day, most of the food were more misses than hits.

Hmm, I was about to attempt this, for RM3.60 is peanuts when it comes to dining in Starhill.

But til end of June only right? Sadly.
