This cavernous food court, specializing in non-halal Chinese street fare, is the first eatery at Solaris Dutamas' soon-to-open Publika shopping gallery.
Reminiscent of Lot 10's Hutong, EAT Food Village gathers a slew of beloved businesses from the Klang Valley & Penang under one air-conditioned roof.
Straight from Sentul, Ah Yap's charcoal wok-fried Hokkien Mee is a lard-laden pleasure, certainly comparable to Hutong's Kim Lian Kee (though perhaps with slightly less 'wok hei').
Also from the 50-year-old Ah Yap: buttermilk pork ribs, creamy and a bit spicy.
Bukit Mertajam loh bak, boasting a fresh, flavorful feel. Crisp outside, hot & juicy within.
Also worthwhile, hailing from somewhere on Penang's mainland: salted pork & a savory soup brimming with pork liver, intestines & pig's blood tofu.
Lorong Seratus Tahun char kuey teow, a mainstay in both Penang & Petaling Jaya's SS2. Decent, though some extra cockles would make this much more satisfying.
More outlets will be opening here soon, including bak kut teh from Klang among others.
Business hours are 10am-3pm daily, but they'll be extended through dinnertime eventually.
