31 October 2017 marked the last day of operations for Ming Tien in Taman Megah, one of the most popular food courts in Petaling Jaya
The 17-year-old foodie spot in Taman Megah had to close down by the end of October to make way for a mixed development project.
With over 60 stalls, Ming Tien was known for its wide variety of hawker food, open-air ambience, and waiters dressed in Hawaiian shirts.
A badminton hall located next to the food court also ceased operations.
However, there's good news for Ming Tien's regular patrons as some stalls have moved to a new spot in Bandar Utama - which opened for business yesterday!
State Assemblywomen for Bukit Lanjan, Elizabeth Wong, took to her Facebook page yesterday, 16 November, to announce the opening of the new food court aptly named 'Ming Tien @ BU'.
"Back in those days, I used to always hang out in the Taman Megah Ming Tian for supper and late meetings. When I first heard it was closing, like most PJ folks, I was disappointed. But to my surprise, it is now opened in my constituency," Wong said in the post.
The new Ming Tien is situated in a building previously known as Zam Zam Cafe in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya.
Some of the stalls that have moved to Bandar Utama include the ones selling grill fish, fish head curry, satay, and wantan mee
According to a report by The Star Online, the management at Ming Tien gave stall owners alternatives following the closure - relocated to Bandar Utama, Jalan Kelang Lama or Cheras.
The new premises in Cheras will only be ready by Chinese New Year.
While some have chosen to move to new premises in Cheras and Jalan Kelang Lama, older stalls like Vince Penang Grill Fish have decided to move their business to Bandar Utama.
