Genki Up!

I came across this restaurant some times ago, but din't have the chance to taste the food.

It's called Genki Up, 元气. Genki in Japanese means fine/well so you can tell this restaurant serves some nutritious food~

They have snacks

Local specialties

Several types of cakes!

Even man tao and pao

The shop. No air conditioners though

They also have ice cream!

And this is the nutritious drinks, a lot of combinations of fruits which serve different functions like slimming, detox, strengthen the immune system and so on. Price range from RM3.50 to RM5

They display some of the food photos on the wall, as well as the benefits of each fruits. Very informative!

Ordered this Hokkien fried kuey teow. Nice~

Fried glass noodles. Taste nice and the sambal is good! But it's too much as breakfast, may be more suitable for lunch?

Chocolate and peanut waffle. This is the hard type, I prefer the soft type though

Cold bread toast

Toast with hash brown and cheese

Total bill for 4 of us including drinks is RM 26.30, quite reasonable I think. They serve no pork no lard so it's halal. Serving speed is acceptable.

Will surely go there again.

  7. Looks good. I think more and more healthy food stores are coming up nowadays since people are more cautious about what they eat.

  8. wah, they really have a wide variety of food in that restaurant!! that would possibly take me 20 minutes to flip through the menu and decide what to eat and drink, hahaha!! the hokkien kuey teow looks good, but are you sure that's hokkien style?? :p

  9. It's reasonably cheap, the food looks great too!

  10. ooo... genki, but it's not japanese eh? i love waffle :)

  11. I will surely take a long time to decide what to eat here... too many items to choose from! It's not expensive at all... I like :)
