Everyone in the district speaks about Cai Li Yu Tou Guo when we popped the question "What's the To-Eat in Whampoa Makan Place", out of many asked, the reply normally goes "Fish Head Steamboat at the corner shop!". Inquisitive beings like will want to find out if these suits my taste buds.To start off, I had a not so smooth encounter with the waiting time as well as the service.

To start off, I had a not so smooth encounter with the waiting time as well as the service. These were a total letdown and I would hesitate if I'm requested for a next visit.
We started placing our order from Cai Li Yu Tou Guo as soon as we got a seat and proceeded to order some sides while waiting for them. After completing our sides and drinks (about half hour), we were not served, not even was the portable gas stove placed onto our table. We were told the same thing for every approach when checking our order and was given a unfriendly response that our order was next. Waited for an hour and the food finally came but we was told what we had ordered was sold out! The wait was already a frustrating one and to make it worse, the "sold out" order was not indicated during ordering. It was the last straw for Cai Li Yu Tou Guo when we saw them serving the so called "sold out" order to the next table 5 minutes after serving us.
Nevertheless, we continued our dinner with 2 bowls of rice. I would say that portions of fish meat given was generous and fresh. The soup was tasty with dried fish included and it had reminded me of those small packets of "Ikan Satay" available in Malaysia. The soup was chalky in color with prawns and a great portions of yam included. I find that service is rather important when it comes to F & B industries. I don't mind if the service is of average but having waited for an hour and was told at the eleventh hour that it was sold out is definitely a no no to me.
