Xian Ding Wei (鮮定味) Menu - what do you think?

Xian Ding Wei Taiwanese Tea Room (鮮定味)@ Queensbay

From what I observed, the winning points of Xian Ding Wei are:
(a) standing out among Queensbay Mall's restaurants, being the sole Taiwanese cuisine restaurant that offers menu with extensive choices.
(b) prominent design layout like Canton-i, a place that everyone eager to try at least ONCE after walking past a few times(?!)

Minus points are:
(a) the price is relatively higher by at least 40% (let's say, compared to Kochabi Taiwanese Delight at Burmah Road). For instance, mini hot pot RM23.90++ vs RM18 nett at Kochabi.
(b) the drink preparation counter is far too messy, why the bar top has so many things uh? Wouldn't it be nicer if it's partitioned from public view?!

S4 Double Boiled Herbal Pork Spare Ribs Soup (RM10.90++) - I don't like the soup for having that starchy surface a short while after served. This soup is far more flavourful than that 'soup of the day' for the set meal below, but CKA! Ha!
