Shihlin had been here for quite sometime and I've yet to try out their food. Although many floggers have post a review on this, but I would like to write out my thinking too. :-)

This shop is renowned for its XXL crispy chicken and also oyster mee sua. So, I've ordered both. The XXL crispy chicken set come with a soya bean drink or mineral water. I choose soya bean drink. It's the V-soy brand soya bean drink which you can easily get it at any supermarket.
XXL crispy chicken set. It come with rice and tofu topped with bits of century egg. The chicken is tasty with tender meat and some chili powder on top of the chicken. The tofu is served cold topped with some oyster sauce and century egg. The rice is topped with some oyster sauce too which make it too salty to my tastebud.
The presentation of the oyster mee sua is very nice. The ingredients are separated and put nicely on top of the mee sua. They are shredded chicken, some vege (dunno what's the name - someone help? ), chili and oyster. The oyster tasted slightly oyster-ish... hehe... dunno what word shall I use for that smell. So, I feel that the oyster is not fresh enough. Overall the mee sua taste good except the oyster part. The mee sua tasted slightly spicy and sour.

We plan to try out the crispy floss egg crepe but we were too full after the 2 meals.

    We always pass by Shihlin in Queensbay Mall but never go and try...maybe the size is too small for us to squeeze in :P

    eh, how come email2me put the same comment in your blog as same as allenooi blog? haha

    anyway, the vege call "Coriander". and the oyster really Sxxks...not fresh at all. and i pretty agree with Ken, the Unclebob in PG pasar malam is good previously, but now also a little bit jilat....sigh
