A walk around One Utama in determination to find exciting lunch sets to add to our list ended deliciously at Little Taiwan. The set menu can get quite confusing, as there were a few different types of sets on offer, but at least there’s a huge selection to choose from!
We decided to go with the, erm, 8 Hotties* ones, trying out theMa Po Tofu Riceset andMongolian Beef Riceset. Reasonably pri... read more »
