Returning home, I did a little research on the eatery and IT IS NOT A SMALL EATERY PLACE. Apparently, there are over 40 outlets of Shaxian Delicacies in Hangzhou alone! It is like Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks in Malaysia. Shaxian Delicacies is actually a franchised outlet from Fujian, China.

This is a big bowl of delicious 大肉面 (Da Rou Mian) – literally “big meat noodle”. Simple and clear soup noodle topped with a piece of braised pork belly.

大肉面 (Da Rou Mian) @ 12元 ≈ RM6.30

Huge slab of braised pork belly served in a bowl of soup noodle. It is so wobbly as I picked it up with my chopsticks and it is very tender. Very suitable for people with braces on.

Le happy me savouring the big bowl of yummy 大肉面. They say slurping noodle loudly is one of the Japanese great dining pleasures. #sodontmindmymanners #

香菇排骨面 (Mushroom Pork Ribs Noodle) @ 10元 ≈ RM5.20

Apart from the mesmerising Big Meat noodle, there are other delightful dishes to look forward to. Although the pork ribs noodle looks rather plain and not as exciting as the big meat noodle, its broth is clear but flavourful. The pork ribs are very tender but I find them stingy on the mushrooms =/

鲜肉蒸饺 (Steamed Meat Dumplings)

The steamed dumplings are pleated like leaves and too pretty to be eaten. A basket of 10 delicious dumplings is great for sharing or as a light meal on its own.

莲子猪肚汤 (Lotus Seed Pork Stomach Soup) @ 10元

We’re used to have Pig Stomach soup cooked in pepper based soup. This one is different as the soup is not pepperish, but clear and flavourful with ingredients such as lotus seed. Very nutritious de nehh..
