Hotpot is one of the most popular cuisines in China, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. When food critic, Chua Lam (蔡澜) appear in a popular talk show and say that hotpot is an ‘uncultured’ cooking style that might as well disappear, the Chinese social media broke out and defend the hotpot. We certainly agree if those hotpot serving msg broth with processed ingredients disappear but we always craving for a good quality hotpot with tasty broth.
What KK lacking is restaurants serving good quality hotpot. Cincaieat is trying to fill the gap by serving good tasty hotpot.
Cincaieat is located on the 5th floor of T1 Bundusan, the commercial hotspot at Bundusan area.
Private room and outdoor dining are available at Cincaieat
condiments choice is limited but while they lacking in quantity, they make it up with good quality condiments.
“Cincai”, a Malaysian slang means whatever. But Cincaieat is surely not so cincai as they take their hotpot broth seriously.
Cincaieat signature broth, Pork bone broth with coconut juice (RM58) is simmered for a good 8 hours, reaching a delectable creamy texture which tastes extremely nourishing. with no artificial flavors, MSG or flavor enhancer used. The local coconut juice gives the broth the natural sweetness.
The made in house wonton and dimpling had some good folds. It was nice to see some attention to consistency
We were dazzled by the presentation of the seafood platter. It’s hard to choose between the Shrimps and fish slice as both were chewy and juicy, leaving me craving for more. The seafood platter also comes with scallops, mussel and clams.
Cincaieat is serious about their broth and ingredients, offering a wide array of fresh meats and dishes of high-quality ingredients. Terrence, the owner of Cincaieats told us that they plan to expand their menu and make more ingredients in-house to ensure the best quality. For such a casual name, Cincaieat certainly picky with what they served to the customers.
