Coco Steamboat just opened its' branch in Old Klang Road on 23rd July 2012. Its' main branch is located along a row of office shop-lots in Taman Bukit Hijau (nearby Taynton View). The environment of the restaurant is not bad. There is a mini pond and fountain with beautiful big Japanese carp fishes in it. The choices of soup base available there include their signature whole pork bone base (have to add additional RM 17.90), clear soup base and porridge base (only available on weekends). Though pricey, mum and I decided to try their whole pork base steamboat. Yeah, mum was nagging about the price throughout the meal but I enjoyed the steamboat very much.
The big clay pot is used in keeping the whole bone pork steamboat......Chilli sauce
......I don't really liked it because it is too spicy.Ingredients for one steamboat set (RM 15.80/pax)
I didn't manage to capture all ingredients because mum already throw in some of the ingredients into the pot. Some of the ingredients include vegetables, tofu, fish balls, fish noodles, fish slice, a prawn, dumpling and crabstick.Yee Mee and Egg
for the steamboat
We ordered an additional plate of mushroom meat balls (RM 8.90).
I quite like the meat balls. There were chuncks of mushrooms mixed with the meat of the meatball. Besides, the meat balls were also very fragrant.......yummy yummy.........
We also ordered a plate of sliced pork (RM 11.90).
The slice pork were thinly sliced, making them to cook very fast. Each slice of the pork has an oil attached to them, which I don't really fancy. But the meat part is good. Very tender. Just remember don't overcooked them or the meat will become tough to eat. Probably just cooked them in the boiling soup for about 30 seconds and they are ready to be eaten.
They actually used a big sized pork bone to brew the soup. Can you see the bone in the middle? Mum and I ate the meat attached to the bone and we found that the bone might be off roasted pork because it has some roasted flavor in it......Other ingredients used in brewing the soup include black pepper, chilli, yam and milk. The chilli and black pepper in it makes the soup slightly hot but at an acceptable level. I love the idea of adding milk in it making the soup creamier and tastier. Just like other normal steamboats, the soup gets better after cooking all the ingredients in it. I had 3 bowls of the soup to satisfy my cravings for steamboat soup...The refill for the soup is free....thumbs up...hehe
The total damage
for the meal including 2 plain water (RM 1.60) = RM 56.10
