I have been wanting to visit this outlet with a catchy name (有骨气/Yau Guat Hei in Chinese) ever since I saw its banner promoting “soupless steamboat”.. “dry steamboat”.. 1st in Malaysia… really?? Soupless, Dry and 1st of its kind?? Where would the steam come from when it’s soupless and dry, we wonder?? Maybe they should call it ”steamless boat” instead?? Anyway, our curiousity got the better of us, so, me and wifey decided to check out the offer see what’s the hoo-haa all about!
A view from outside the restaurant. See the advertisement on the banner?? Chilli party summore!
Now you know what I meant by typical? still using gas burner?? Arrghh… Where are those built-in induction cookers? Not only one may adjust the temperature of the boiling soup individually, it’s also more hygienic to have your own pot of soup, don’t you think?
Sauces at your disposal. Fried garlic,belacan chilli, more belacan, belacan with dried shrimps and lastly a jar of mustard too. I would normally opt for the belacan with dried shrimps but the dried shrimps here were not blended properly therefore it kinda hurt your gums when you chew on it. It’s hard! Told the manager and he assured us he’ll look into it and have them improved!
Fresh Beef Slices @ RM 14.90 ~ This is a must for all of our steamboat excursions. Simply dip it into the boiling broth for a swift moment and eat it right away. Amazing! Not many places serve this though!
Fresh Lamb Slices @ RM 14.90 ~ Comparatively, this was better than the beef slices. The marble pattern says it all! Cooking procedure as above! Undercook is the best! Again, this is not available at most steamboat outlets as not many of our coutrymen enjoy it!
Siew Mai with Sotong & Fish Egg @ RM 8.90 ~ Looks good don’t they?? Tasted crap ok! The skin was so sticky and the sotong was way too gluey after we took them for a dips in our hot broth! Can give it a miss!
Signature Pork Bone Broth @ RM 12.00 ~ Lived up to its signature claim as this was really good. Big piece of pork bone and long hours of preparation thus made the broth sweet, milky and naturally rich with the pork bone flavor. MSG level is low too!
Chinese Jasmine Tea @ RM 1.50/pax ~ I certainly need this, especially after every Chinese meal! This pot is meant for 2 and the charges are reasonable!
For RM 82.60 (inclusive of 5% svc tax), you may get more value if you opt for the set meals. (RM19.80/pax) or (RM13.80/pax) after 2130. Will come back for sure, to check out the “soupless steamboat” (RM 9.90) which we were supposed to but they only serve them during lunch hours (1200-1500). Overall “steaming” experience wasn’t that bad but the price is on the high side. Nevertheless, it’s always nice to enjoy a good pot of hot steamboat, especially during those rainy nights like tonight!
