What to eat at EatAlley at Orchard Gateway - Review

As a born and bred KL girl, I couldn't resist it when I heard about this new food court that claims to house KL's top hawker/food stalls all under one roof. Without hesitation I dragged my husband and baby along. When we arrived, it was hard to find a table as the space was quite small. After about 10 minutes wait, we got one and started ordering. The food stalls itself had minimal queue and dishes were ready pretty quickly.

I was only able to try 3 dishes today which I'll cover in the review below. I might go again to try some other stalls - we'll see! Travelling back to KL frequently is too much of a hassle since we don't have a car, I'm glad that I can satisfy some of my cravings here. However, I am still waiting for Sin Kiew Yee (Shin Kee) to open a stall in Singapore.. it's my all-time favourite KL beef noodles and I can't find similar ones here. :(

First stall we tried is this Kampung Nasi Lemak Kukus with the spiced fried chicken ($8.80) and added $3 for sambal cockles (yums!!). The rice is fragrant and fluffy while the chicken is juicy and super flavourful. Overall, 7/10.

Next, we have the Soong Kee beef noodles. If you are a fan of dry minced meat beef noodles, this one's for you! The minced beef+pork is generous and satisfying. The soup was a bit salty and would suit those with heavy tastebuds. The beef slices were tender while beef balls had a good spring.

Overall rating: 8/10

Last one was Hong Lai selling Hokkien mee and other zi char noodles. I ordered the moonlight kuey teow which was smooth and creamy thanks to the raw egg on top. Pork lard was sinfully delicious. Wok hei was not too strong though but still acceptable.

Overall rating: 7.5/10

Would I visit again? Maybe, if I happen to be in the vicinity or have cravings for KL food. Taste is slightly above average but prices are not cheap.
