One of longest, surviving and successful food court in Petaling Jaya, is the Ming Tien food court in Taman Megah. Surrounding it are famous landmark restaurants like Secret Recipe, Bayu Timur, Fatty Crabs, Pangkor fish head curry, La Manila...etc. The concept is tropical with thatched attap roofs, some bullock carts wheel tables and the recorded sound of birds chirping away. The stalls are arranged in a square shape, along the perimeter side of the food court. The food offered are unique-local, fusion and Asian cuisine too! Drinks like fruit juice are served in huge mug at rm3.60/. The last time when i was there the waiters wore straw hats, batik shirts and tags with names of Hong Kong movies stars, now the novelty have faded away. This place have WI-FI too, you can do your web surfing for free. It is a nice place to have some "cold ones" too!The four of us broke away from our usual rice dinner.
