Hakka Style Chicken Fried Noodle围村客家鸡球炒面RM13.80, on top of various main dish they served us with additional Hakka Style Fried Noodle, the noodle texture is very close to Yee Mee but not that soft instead it has some chewy texture, it doesn’t mean bad instead I like the texture very much, it must have some superior broth to cook and fully absorb by the noodle as the noodle is quite rich in flavor.

Tian Ding Xiang 天鼎香 just into business for less than a year time and the owner coming from a food and beverage family, he has the interest on food and that his motivation to open this restaurant and share the great food with everyone.
Overall the dish is pretty delicious, we like it because it does has rich flavor but for those people that doesn’t like strong flavor might complain it too salty or sweet but for us that is the flavor we looking for.
