The Zun Express @ The Garden Mid Valley

For most of you whom may not know this... Zun Express is part of Eu Yan Sang foray into F&B industry. Jenn was the first one who introduced me to this place when she was still working in Mid Valley. Back then I always looked for time to have lunch with her. Back to Mid Valley this time for shopping purpose, both of us decided to check out this place once again as she was craving for soup.

It was almost lunch time and the crowd started to pour in, yet we managed to find ourselves a table. The whole place is designed with oriental concept, as they are involved mainly in traditional Chinese medicine.

What attracted Jenn to come in at the first place was wordings on the menu "Nourishing Soups". She just loved everything that has soup in it :) and I was addicted to soup not long after.

I had their Signature Stir Fried Sang Mee - two thumbs up!! Enough wok hei, prawns were fresh, not too oily, not too dry nor wet, crispy lettuce on top... what more can I ask for??? A must try when coming to this place..

Jenn ordered their herbal chicken soup that came with a free bowl of rice. Full of flavour, the herbs, peanuts and chicken meat were packed inside a slightly larger than fist-size bowl. Nothing can ever go wrong with that... and no additional side orders needed, as Jenn could finish the rice with just the soup and the chicken meat.

Boiled chrysanthemum tea - to cool down what I'd eaten!

Leo's verdict - soup lovers will definitely love this place. Their other dishes are also worth to be given a try. For me, I will always come back whenever I'm craving for soups :)

i'm a big fan of chinese soups too, but i've kinda had bad experiences with soups that were too salty and not "medicinal" enough. did the soup here taste healthy to you? will try to check it out. but i think my all-time favorite soup is my grandma's medicinal chicken soup, which i haven't had for more than 10 years!

sean - my wife is an expert in soups. I wasn't a big fan of soups in the past, but then she converted me into one :) and since this place is part of Eu Yan Sang group which specialise in traditional herbs... they also have another outlet in Shaw Parade too! Alternatively try Ah Yip in Low Yat Plaza... but I haven't gone there for long time. Not sure about the quality though
