Jim’s Malaysian

For a quick work dinner, we stopped off at Jim’s Malaysian in Hawker Lane, a new food court in Westfield Chatswood that showcases the best that Asian food has to offer.

Food:
The menu is very expansive, with some great authentic dishes on offer. After seeing the other reviews, I picked the Char Kuey Teoh, which is a flat rice noodle cooked in a wok with fish cakes, prawns, egg and Chinese sausage. A good char kuey teoh needs a strong and delicious ‘burnt wok’ flavour, and this version of the dish definitely delivered!

It had a great spice and flavour to it, and the noodles were well grilled. Thet portion was also very generous, which is perfect if you’re looking for a big dinner. There were plenty of seafood items in the dish, and the only thing I would change for next time is taking out the Chinese sausage, which I personally don’t like.

Ambience:
In the evening, the food court had plenty of seating available, and we loved the concept, with the many food stalls offering a unique taste of Asian cuisine that you can mix and match to build a multicultural feast. The meal was quickly prepared, and service was very efficient, which was a great plus point as well. At $12.80, it’s a bit on the pricier side, but arguably very value for money given the amazing taste and portion size.

Overall:
I really enjoyed my quick dinner at Jim’s Malaysian, and would love to go back to sample some of the other menu items, including desserts like Ice Kachang, which I was so happy to see on the menu! The new Hawker Lane food court definitely lives up to the hype, and is worth a try if you’re ever in the Chatswood area.
