Located somewhere on the top floors of The Gardens, Mid Valley, you will find the upmarket or the high class Gurney Drive. At first I thought that it was a food court selling Penang Hawker food but no, actually its a restaurant with a Menu but the layout looks like a food court with different hawkers peddaling their food stuff.
You don’t go to the individual stalls to order your food but rather, you order what you want from a Menu. Sorry, I didn’t bring my camera on that day but the gist of it is……. EVERYTHING ALSO COSTS RM15 OR SO!
For dinner for our little family or two adults and two kiddoes, we ordered Sar Hor Fun (how to translate this ah?), Ark Tui Mee Suah (Duck Soup Vermicilli), Satay (One Dozen) and Prawn Omellette (For the kids actually but it turned out spicy and the waitress did not have the foresight to inform us that it would be). And warm water all round. (Cos’ we were too full for dessert since we had to wallop the spicy stuff ourselves. And we were too kiamsiap to pay for more than water. Lol! Again the waitress did not have the foresight to let us know whether our order was too much or too little since we kept on asking her whether it would be sufficient as we did not know the portions). The meal came up to a whopping RM70 plus.
My verdict? Ok, food andÂ ambience was not too bad but no, I am not going to pay RM15 for a plate of hawker food no matter how you package it. It just doesn’t seem right.
