Good News Everyone!! There is a new Hot Pot restaurant opened in Bangsar to satisfy people’s cravings on Hot Pot/Steamboat. The weather starts to cool down now after the terrific hot weather in the past few months .So now you can indulge yourself with Hot Pot with no worries right? Hong Kong Hot Pot is located at Level 2, Telawi Square ( Next To Piggy Tail Restaurant). It is an Ala-Cate Steamboat restaurant. We were greeted upon entering and a couple of people occupied the restaurant when we arrived but it was filling up soon later on. The ambiance of the restaurant was good and they have a private seating area as well. So if you wanted to enjoy your steamboat in a private area this restaurant can be one of your choice as well.
Herbal Drink is a good idea to indulge in while eating steamboat. It was awesome and all of us loved it.
Herbal Drink @ RM 23
Chinese Tea was good too. It is a high quality Chinese Tea compare to the normal Chinese Tea you can get in any Kopitiam restaurant.
Chinese Tea @ RM 3.50
We were served with 4 types of soup for the steamboat. Sakura Pork Bone Soup (RM 23), Imported HK Century Egg & Coriander (RM 25), Szchuan Spicy (RM 25) and Pumpkin Soup Base (RM 25). All the soup tasted good but my personal favorite is their Sakura Pork Bone Soup and Pumpkin Soup Base. The Pumpkin Base soup is delicious while Sakura Pork Bone Soup was simple yet tasty. If you choose Mix Soup Base (2 soups) like us, then it would cost RM 30 per pot. Spicy lovers you should go for their Szchuan Spicy Soup. It is too hot for me but my friend loved it.
4 Person Platter @ RM 68 per head.
It includes of Sakura Pork Slice, US premium Marble Beef Slice, Hong Kong Fried Fish Skin, Fresh Tiger Prawn, Korean Oyster, Local Bean Curd, Imported Hong Kong Bean Curd Roll, Fresh Handmade Prawn Meat Ball, Fresh Hand Made Squid Meat Ball, Fresh Hand Made Fish Meat Ball, Hong Kong Mushroom Pork Meat Ball, Hong Kong Crab Egg Meat Ball, Hand Made Chives Dumpling, Hand Made Prawn Dumpling, Needle mushroom, Abalone Mushroom, Japanese Udon and Hong Kong Yee Mee Noodle.
Some of the items I liked is their Hong Kong Fried Fish Skin, Fresh Tiger Prawn, Korean Oyster, Local Bean Curd, Imported Hong Kong Bean Curd Roll, Hong Kong Crab Egg Meat Ball, Hand Made Chives Dumpling, Hand Made Prawn Dumpling and Hong Kong Yee Mee Noodle.
All the items in the platter was fresh especially their Tiger Prawns and Oyster. In normal steamboat, the quality of fresh seafoods are just average but here we were served with high quality seafoods that I am pretty impressed with. The prawns are meaty and juicy. The Oyster has a very good texture and I loved it when the oyster just burst in my mouth. Moreover, I can feel the freshness of it when I bite it in my mouth.
I don't eat any internal organ so no comments on that.
It was a good dinner for us. It was my first time that I enjoyed the steamboat without any sauce as the soup was so flavourful. It absorbs the flavour from the soup when you cook the items in the soup. So when you eat it, you don't need any sauce to go with. I use 0% of seasoning/ sauce for the steamboat and I was surprised with that too. Friendly and humble hospitality that gives a very warm feeling to me.
Thanks for hosting us.
