Xiao Fei Yang Restaurant.

I have been driving past this eye catching green signboard Xiao Fei Yang Restaurant located in Damansara Uptown, a couple of times.
Almost always fullhouse during the weekends.
A rainy Monday evening was the perfect time to try them out.
The only outstanding and extraordinary item are their tasty broth which are charged separately-quite pricey ! 
Eating utensils like plate, saucer, bowl are at Rm1/pax-where got meaning ! (Next time I shall bring my own chopsticks! )
Most food except the greens are not properly thawed (need a longer time to get it cooked) and I think it comes straight out of the chiller.

Nothing special.

Parking is OK after 6 pm.

Two herbal flavored broth- 1) left hand side-filled with scums of hot and spicy chillies oil-2) right hand side-clear broth filled with cheap looking ginseng roots, stalks of spring onion, dried nutmeg, wolfberries,, cloves of garlic, spices like cloves , cinnamon....etc.

Assorted ingredients like pork ball, prawns,cuttlefish/pork ball,pig's tendon ball, sliced Toman fish, white tofu, Tong Oh, Nai Pak Choy, fried beancud sheets, Chinese Long cabbage, Enoki mushroom, hand made noodle,
Pork slices.
Chicken slices
Garlic and fermented black bean sauce.

Total Bill: Rm172/
Location: 40G &42G, Jalan SS21/62,
Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya,

as the name suggested, you should have tried their lamb meat :)
been here once with my wife... love the broth but the ingredients were good enough (but not overly fantastic) for us. However, I had too much of the herbal soup and I experienced severe headache for an hour after that (MUST be too hot!)

foodbin said...

smallkucing-seems the utensils are sterilized and hygienic !
thule a.k.a leo-too gamey for my taste and your headache may be the broth is too heaty and potent.

in china, they do the same thing wrapped the utensils for hygience purposes but they dun charge for it~

foodbin said...

Mindy-just cannot accept the charges for it.

Oh my! I will never pay such charges!
Utensils are expected t obe provided, after we are eating/givin biz to yr premises!

Been there once, the food is nothing to shout about and rather pricey. Not only have to pay for utensils and soup, the lady boss or something was rather bossy too - NO BOOKING WAIT OUTSIDE. Will never go there again.

foodbin said...

thenomadGourmand-really unfair.
Choo-me, too!

I heard quite a bit of not-so-good reviews abt this place but the fact that they're charging for use of the utensils - that's really too much! Isn't it their responsibility to provide customers with hygienic utensils & environment in the 1st place?! This place is definitely not on my Makan List!

PureGlutton-but it's fullhouse every weekends.
