Apart from Din Tai Fung 鼎泰豐, Fong Lye Taiwanese Restaurant 蓬莱茶房台湾料理 is also one of the most popular chain restaurant serving Taiwanese cuisine.

The first ever Fong Lye Taiwanese Restaurant was located on Jalan Imbi in Kuala Lumpur, which opened its doors 18 years ago. Today, they have several other branches in Sri Hartamas, The Gardens, Sunway Pyramid and another in Suria KLCC (under the name Kiki), which is the only one of their restaurants that is pork-free.

Fong Lye Taiwanese Restaurant (蓬莱茶房台湾料理) @ The Gardens Mall : Sweet Potato Balls (RM7.30)

Sweet Potato Balls 地瓜球 (RM7.30)

Sweet potato balls 地瓜球 is one of the signature dish at Fong Lye and almost every table ordered a plate of this snack / appetizer. These bite-sized sweet potato balls looked delicious on the picture menu but it turned out otherwise.

The exterior is crispy but the interior filling is very chewy that you need to keep biting it. The chewy texture of this sweet potato balls is a let down for me as I prefer the soft mushy filling. Also, the balls are quite bland in taste, no sweetness and flavor from the sweet potato at all. I reckon the sweet potato balls at Petaling Street fared better.

Their set meal is similar to bento sets at Japanese restaurant – all set meal comes with condiments and a bowl of hot soup. This Dry Udon Beef comes with slices of beef that was tender and flavorful. Love it!

Verdict: Fong Lye is the place for you when you have cravings for Taiwanese cuisine or Taiwanese-style home-cooked meals. Price wise, it’s reasonable as the food portion is quite big. The only drawback is Fong Lye accept cash payment only.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
