Hometown @ Sunway Giza, Kota Damansara

Jenn & I stumbled upon this little outlet by coincidence. It was our first time going to Sunway Giza on a rainy Saturday evening. Since it was raining and rather cold, something hot, comforting and home-y came to our mind. Since all their tables were at the outdoor area, we could see the diners slurping the hot & steamy bowl of noodle from where we were standing.

This outlet is located next to Village Grocer at the cornermost area. Since the outlet's inner space is quite limited, all the tables and chairs are placed outside.

Hometown Curry Prawn Noodle @ RM12.90 (S) - the curry broth was packed with flavour and the noodle was obviously handmade instead of the commercial ones (no taste of preservatives at all!)... therefore, Jenn gave her approval on this dish. Throw in fu chuk, taufu pok, plump taugeh (bean sprout), cockles and 2 rather big fresh prawns and it's good to go :)

Hometown Meat Noodle @ RM12.90 - hakka style braised pork with black fungus. The saltiness level was just right and when the gravy was paired with the dry homemade noodle, every slurp was a JOY to me!

Thai style roll @ RM10 - nothing to shout about this dish (normal but non-oily) but the Thai style chilly sauce was quite addictive I'd say.

Leo's verdict - To those who doesn't mind being stared or sitting outside, then this is the place for you. Both Jenn & I were impressed by the food although we didn't have high expectation at first. An ad hoc decision to satisfy our hungry stomach with soupy and comfort dish ended up a little gem being unearthed! To those who has been to Sunway Giza before, this place is just right next to Village Grocer.

P.S: Haven't been online for a long time during this CNY break, I am BACK!!!

interesting, i actually always assumed this place was a halal/pork-free kopitiam (similar to pappa rich). looks like they have the important ingredients that i love (pork AND cockles!) :D

Oh I think I saw Hometown kopitiam around somewhere else before. It looks like one of those chain restaurants like Old Town/Papparich so I didnt try. But from yr post it looks like a place that I should go check out soon!! :)

Its always so nice when the food takes you by surprise (in a good way).

Didn't realise it's non-Halal too. Will check it out if I'm in the area. :)
