♥Verdict: The price definitely wasn’t cheap but rationalized with a better quality ingredients (grouper fish). Portion wise, the set and add-on ingredients that we had is suitable for 3-4 persons, for a fulfilling meal. The flavour of the fish head soup was spot on, I loved the melt-in-your-mouth yam sticks that well absorbed the flavour of the broth. Any yam fans here? 🙋
Overall, this CCF is not for us. But it is quite popular as most tables had a plate when we were here. If you’re in the area, do give it a try as it might be suited to your tastebuds. Taste is subjective and personal, after all.
All other Hotpot ingredients were fresh; note-worthy ones include the Taichi Duo-Shrimp Paste and Fresh Fish Slices. The Taichi Duo Shrimp Paste has two flavors- original and spicy. Both were good and there were bits of the bouncy Shrimps in the paste.
Here's the location.
On the other hand, the Nyonya Dumpling (RM 6.80) is not bad. It offers a fair balanced of sweet and savoury taste. It has been some time we did not see Nyonya dumpling on restaurant menu.
The signature at Genki Canteen is Hokkien Mee and Nasi Lemak. The cafe offers Signature Hokkien Mee at RM 9.90 (which is about double of usual hawker price), while addition of pork rib and prawns to the noodle have the price tag of RM 15.90 and RM 16.90 respectively. Genki Canteen's Hokkien Mee are nicely presented, although it did not differ much in terms of the ingredients offerings and portion. The taste is good though, brimming with nice and rich prawn scent and sleek in taste.
Leaving this new cafe with very little chance to show the public what they are made of.
The Signature Hokkien Mee is probably one of the best sellers on the menu. We had the basic one at Rm 9.90 per bowl and it was.... basic. While we must agree that it was a decent Hokkien Mee (discernible Prawn flavor with a hint of Porky notes), the portion was small.
The Kolo Mee is good.
A very well prepared Fried Chicken Nasi Lemak !
