One might think that this restaurant is owned by the group that operates U Mobile but it isn’t, and it isn’t a village as well and neither does it look like any village at all.
U-Village could also be said to be a hidden gem that’s not so hidden. Let me explain – the restaurant is most visible from the exterior of Sungei Wang Plaza and it’s not placed at the front areas for Sungei Wang Plaza but at the rear, facing Kentucky Fried Chicken at Low Yat Plaza.
The restaurant is often very crowded during lunch hour and more often than not, still has quite a crowd even towards the later part of the afternoon. The photo below was taken at around 3pm.
The lunch set at RM 13.90 is what I believe the crowd-puller, your choice of dish comes with a drink and soup.
I ordered the Stephen Chow BBQ Pork Rice – I wasn’t expecting something hilarious to be served but food named after the iconic comedian from Hong Kong does arouse curiosity.
And so the food arrived, one might thought this had to be a lame joke or something but it isn’t – that’s just one side of the dish.
The main star of the dish is on the other side – WOWzers what juiciliciously tantalizing slab of pork it has there!
Lovely char siew it was, with a good balance between meat and fats.
The rice was tasty too, I’m so glad it wasn’t plain white rice.
Remember I mentioned about drinks and soup? Here it is, I ordered Honey Lemon tea. The soup comes with chicken and corn.
Yup, that’s quite some stuff they have there in the soup.
If you’re at the golden triangle and looking for good Chinese food then you should give U-Village a shot.
