Two Pesos. A brand that I heard a huge hype over it. There are mix reaction where some of my friend do not like it, and some say they like it. So me and my friend decided to drop by to check them out as Two Pesos is originated from Taiwan, a mini steamboat that every one get one hot pot by yourself. For me I still like my big pot of steamboat to be shared as the more ingredient I added in, the soup gets better.
I reach at 8.15pm and I only got my table at 9.30pm. One thing I realise while waiting is that they did not maximise all the tables where each couple are occupying a table of four, where they easily can filled the table up for table sharing that will cut the waiting time by half. Maybe that is their policy of running a business. With the impression of it is going to be a great hot pot.
Their price is definitely on the winning side along with 12 different types of soup base to choose from.
Unlimited sauce for you to enjoy.
Drinks are so so for both winter melon and ice tea.
My friend ordered Beef Italian Tomato @ RM 16 comes with 1 prawn and 1 fish meat. I guess their Italian tomato is other version where no tomato taste are visible. Soup base is quite bland although it is nicely presented.
If I got a chance to order with bbq set, then this would be my preference. I ordered Two Pesos BBQ Pork @ RM 19..50. I can only say the higlight of this BBQ is their sauce. Great in taste.
Mongolian Herbs was another order @ RM 15.50. Ingredients do look alot as all only come in one pieces or a slice where bottom is a mountain of Chinese cabbage to push all the ingredient up and make it looks like well worth it. Soup base is more outstanding compare to the rest with its unique herb taste.
Meat are decent. . .
Overall, I guess I would not be the right fit of Two Pesos where after reach home, all of us were thirsty for water. With such pricing that they have, we do not mind to pay slightly more to enjoy our favorite hot pot. I would go back for my favourite Taiwanese Steamboat – 神来一鍋 – God’s Delicious Pot at Kota Damansara.
It was quite a let down in terms of quality but they wins in presentation and price (to many peoples perception). It is for you to judge as they have customers who like and they have customers who do not like yet they do enjoy long queue every day.
Head over to their new branch at Kota Damansara as they do not have any queue there yet if you are keen to try.
