Ah Yip Herbal Soup at Food Republic, Pavilion

The two superheroes were in the mood for some soul searching - since food is our soul - yesterday when there decided to drive down to Pavilion KL for a monster lunch to feed our appetite. Been there only once previously, and Superhero S actually developed a phobia to shop or dine in Pavilion ever since this happened. *blushing*

Let's not talk about that anymore. Haha. I dare not even pass by the restaurant anymore till today. Too embarrassing. Okay, so since there were so much hoo-haa about the Food Republic food court in Pavilion, we decided to check it out!

Parking in Pavilion was a breeze as we found a beautiful car park almost immediately, and the car park rate was pretty reasonable if you're not planning to linger around for long. On weekdays, the first hour is RM3, while every following half an hour would cost you RM1. But if you're parking there from 5pm onwards, the maximum rate is only RM5. Nice...




Food Republic was also pretty easy to locate actually. From our car park, we came out right next to Madam Kwan's (OH..!) and the food court was all right in front of us. Now that we're here, let's hunt some food, baybeh! Haha. :p





Superhero S immediately spotted a stall with a rather familiar name - Ah Yip Herbal Soup? Oh.....! I thought I'd never see you again!! This used to be my favourite shop when I used to frequent The Mines in my uni days. I could never have enough of their soup and would drop by there like once in a week or something! Reminds me of soup from home... :p

I'm not sure whether the outlet in The Mines is still around today or not, but this one in Pavilion is sure selling pretty well. After making a big round of the entire food court (this place is HUGE!) and peeking into every single shop selling so many different delicious foodie, I knew what I wanted. Definitely something special from my Ah Yip Herbal Soup!

I ordered their Mushroom Duck Drum Stick Soup Noodles which was if I'm not mistaken, their best selling item and arguably the most expensive in their menu at RM13.90. Never mind, I believe there's a reason for the big price tag. Haha.

And my order arrived...




WAH............. Can you see the size of my bowl?! OMG...
And my entire bowl is flooded with herbs! So "pou" (nourishing!)
I like.....






The duck meat was absolutely tender and the meat just fell off from the bone so effortlessly. So yummy... and the soup! Ridiculously "kau" with so much flavour and taste from all the different herbs inside. And it was....in simple words, "delicious!" Now this is why I love this shop so much. Worth every single cent I paid for and I'm definitely going for it again.

More tantalizing foodie...coming up in our next post! Superhero W reveals his food selection for lunch! Haha. :p

As for the MSG..haha..I think it's to be expected lah..No choice. But this one is okay..or maybe we've just gotten immune to them! *gasp!* Haha.
