Sungai Pinang Food Court

My Ratings: 3 Stars

Cuisine: Street Foods
Location: Corner of Jalan Sungai Pinang and Jelutong Highway
Mainly non halal. Halal food available.
RM5-10 per person

Newly opened on 11 June 2009, this food court is quickly gaining popularity as the lastest and hippest food court around town for dinner although it is open for lunch too. The place serves a variety of street foods that you can think of. One striking element of this place is all the stalls have colourful and pictorial signboards like no other place I have been. Also the waiters are dressed in Hawiian shirts and straw hats and to provide a level of cooling and comfort for its quests, it has lots of mist generators. In fact it has a resemblance of Coffee Island and Bali Hai allong Gurney Drive. This is because they all have the same owner.

I ordered laksa (RM2.50) and for something more nutritious, I added a bowl of black chicken herbal soup and a bowl of yam rice (RM8.50). The laksa looks nice but I lack the omphh. I found it a little diluted and borderline tasteless. However, to my delight I found my herbal black chicken soup (No. 6) is delicious and sweet.. You can choose if you want to have your soup with plain rice, yam rice and a selection of noodle types, Amanda ordered the pork ribs with 5 herbs (No. 8) with yam rice (RM6.50). Delicious too! That's two strikes! The black chicken herbal soup is stronger so it may not be everyone's liking. So to be safe, order the clear soup base.

Just as I was about the finish, I went around the food court complex to familiarize myself with all the dishes that were being prepared. One thing for sure is that you will be overwhelmed by the number of choices. Finally I settled for some fried belacan chicken and more specifically fried chicken butts/tails. I really missed the succulent, fatty butts and I used to eat it like tens of them a time but nowadays it is getting expensive coz I am not the only one crazy about stuffing my face with chicken butts. For four pieces now cost RM2. Yikes! like eating gold. However, the belacan (shrimp paste) from this stall is not strong and favourful enough. So my chicken butts is just OK for me (failed to gastromically climax me).

Great to place to eat. Lots to choose from but parking is limited, so you really have to work hard at finding one
