I guess one of the reason for this trend is everybody thought food business is cash business. You buy material with credit but you sell in cash. No collection or debtors issues. Further to that, Malaysian do love eating. Eating has become our culture.
But with such fierce competition, how can one stand out and attract the crowd? And the main survivor of a business is repurchase from existing customer. So, things still come back to the fundamental: the quality of food serve. Yes, the food can be unique and nicely decorated. But if it taste like garbage, it will only ment for the rats.
This Low Maji shop has very nice design and concept. Their Malak stemboat is rather unique. I like the stock soup's taste and the way it serve. But choices of dish and freshness of the seafood need to be improve.
Overall, it is worth for a try to experience a buffet steamboat that really can numb your tongue and mouth.
If the freshness of those seafood can be improved, it will be even better.
I like the soup. The normal herb soup gave me a very healthy feeling. While the Malak red chilli pepper herb soup really numb my tongue and mouth. Strange experience for the mouth and stomarch.
