Last week, we joined OpenRice for another MakanVenture event at a steamboat restaurant. It is located in Jalan Menjalara, Kepong. The place was rather easy to find, but an extremely long journey if you're coming from Shah Alam. The LDP would be jam like hell as it was slightly after office hours. Anyway, the restaurant.Like any regular steamboat restaurant, we order by per pax. Loads of fresh ingredients were given to us to enjoy the night. Everything seems really fresh but more importantly, it
To finalize, since mentioning steamboat flavours is slightly more difficult then regular western dishes, I shall compile my personal opinion on all the given dishes.
Steamboat platter - Although I've tried only about 65-70% of the plate, I conclude that the ingredients used were really fresh. I also like the variety and choices given.
Porridge Soup - A bit too flavourful for me. The use of excessive pepper wasn't really to my liking. However, when cooked with various fishballs, beancurd and stuff, the flavour tends to mild down whilst increasing the flavours of those fishballs and beancurd.
Tom Yum Soup - One of the strongest kick for Tom Yum soup I had in a while. The soup had a very strong and sharp flavour but it wasn't spicy. It just gave the 'wasabi kick' that it didn't really have to. It's not a bad soup, just a very exciting one to drink.
Clear soup - Nothing much, just..clear soup.
Frog legs - Not to my liking. Soft, chewy and meaty. Cooked well with porridge soup.
Fish slices - Fresh, chunky and delicious.
Pork slices - Filled with flavour, good bite and really juicy as well.
Overall, the restaurant did quite a good job in both service and food. Although there are a few parts where they can improve but we'll let them decide.
