It is a revolutionary way to enable travelers to enjoy the cost-benefit of carpool, meanwhile also having the luxury to customize itineraries for the scenic areas chosen.

锅鼎 Restoran Guo Din (Closed)

49, Jalan Perang, Taman Pelangi, Johor Bahru
Contact: +60 12-651 4352
For more info:

Very often, Le Hubby, Me and Val will make a trip back to JB to spend some family time with Le Hubby's family. So whenever we are around, we will try to dine out and treat all of us to a little good food. 

So this time round, the "Lims" are dining at 锅鼎 Guo Din Restaurant.

Simple, Spacious and even air-conditioned!

Dry Pot Chicken 干锅鸡
RM74 (L),
RM56 (M),
RM38 (S)
We ordered the Medium size.
The chicken was very flavourful and tasty.
It was a little on the spicy side though but it goes very well with a bowl of white rice!

Need any help or services? Just a button away!

Happy Food makes Happy customer!

Pumpkin Porridge 香甜金瓜粥
RM42 (Suitable for 1 - 2 pax)

It was creamy and sweet. 
A creative way of cooking a porridge! I shall try to make this at home the next time.
Generous portion of ingredients in it too!
Little Val loves it too!

Claypot Herbal Chicken 砂锅药材鸡
RM 45 (Suitable for 1 - 2 pax)

Time to nourish and rejuvenate thyself.
No better time than to start now!

Help yourself with the sauce~ Mix them or have them as it is!
A little like how Haidilao is doing but this is a simplified version.
Still, the idea is there. Well done!

Munching the corn~

A shot with the Chef and Owner of the Restaurant!
We told them how much we enjoyed the food. Very homely and heart-warming.

Overall, I enjoyed their food and service.
Nice customer service and a variety of hot pot to choose from at an affordable price.
Hot pots are especially good for cold rainy weather~
I would rate it a 7/10.
