The little hidden jewel in Sunway Pyramid brought us there to get a taste of the Shanghainese Delights. Located at Oasis Boulevard, the restaurant is indeed a tricky place to find them. It is located near Parkson and you will find a narrow way on your left which led you to the restaurant.
Opened about 5 months ago, Xia Mian Guan brings me a very impressive decoration where it gives me a cozy and elegant setting with the modern design. Featuring in the restaurant includes the ancient china touches of the print wallpaper too.
To start off with the heavy meal ahead, the Winter Melon with Chilli Flakes (麻辣白玉果) is being served. Xia Mian Guan made is so well where they marinated the winter melon with the vinegar, salt and chilly. Then it is being chilled and topped with the chilly flakes when it is being served. It is not too spicy as expected but the juicy delight which comes from the strips gives a appetizing kick which makes it so good.

We started with trying their signatures noodles from Xia Mian Guan where the restaurant serves up a string of 18 types of noodles. One of the signatures we tried is the Xia Signature Noodles with the Braised Meat Ball (豬骨湯獅子頭夏面) . The dish is slightly being localize to the flavors of Malaysian where the soup is well cooked with the pork bones. As for the noodles, they have used their own made noodles to served. Adding on to it is the meatball which brings the superb sensation where the pork ball is bouncy and juicy in the inside too. The soup brings up the flavorful and sweet taste which comes from the pork bone as well.
