Restoran Shabu-Shabu @ Bandar Puteri Puchong

11 03 2010

A few weeks back, I brought my parents to Restoran Shabu-Shabu at Puchong for dinner. It was their first time visiting this place although I have been there several times. My previous attempts to take pictures at this restaurant with my old Sony Alpha 200 failed as the lighting was pretty difficult to get good shots. Thankfully, the Nikon D300 didn’t have such problem as it was able to cope with the low lighting easily.

What makes Restoran Shabu-Shabu different from the rest of the buffet steamboat restaurant is the manner in which the food are being served. Placed on the conveyor belt akin to those at a Japanese restaraunt, various foods will slowly make its way to all the side tables waiting for the customers to pick them up.

Each customer will have their own steamboat pot which is a good thing for those who like to cook their own choice of food rather than sharing with other friends.

I took these slurpee which came in the form of orange flavour.

And here are some shots I took while waiting for my food to cook. Crab stick…

Mussels…

Fishballs…

Fishcakes…

Crabmeat balls…

Baby octopus (my favourite!)…

And a whole lot of other stuff to choose from…

For RM 26.90 per pax, it is certainly not cheap. But the variety of food to choose from kind of justify the price. A word of advice. It is better to go early as the place will be jam packed by 7 p.m. due to its popularity.

Tasty Pot @ Sunway

19 01 2010

I blogged about Tasty Pot @ Sunway a few months ago. Ever since I tried their barbecue crabs, I’d always wanted to go there again. Imagine my disappointment when their staff told me that their BBQ crabs are only done on weekdays. Being their signature dish, I can’t imagine how they decided NOT to have this on weekends when customers are pouring in.

Still, the variety of stuff to choose from are still impressive. There were certainly many kinds of meatballs to choose from.

They even provide different sauces to compliment the food.

For those who can’t wait for the food to be cooked, Tasty Pot does offer fried rice or noodles to eat. Here is a picture of Char Kuey Teow with Mutton Curry. Surprisingly, it is really good.

Besides that, their sesame roast chicken was noteworthy as well.

We also took a variety of other seafood…

One thing that caught my eyes (and taste bud!) was their omelette. Barbecued with crab shell, the fragrant taste of the shell mixed with the beaten eggs does provide an interesting flavour.

Tasty Pot @ Sunway

19 10 2009

Many city dwellers are familar with the famous Yuen restaurant at Sunway when it comes to steamboat buffet. The queue is usually long even on weekdays as the place has earn its reputation as THE place to go for steamboat.

However, with the recent trend of new steamboat restaurants mushrooming around Sunway, food lovers are now spoil with choices when it comes to choosing a place to have dinner. After hearing a lot about ‘Tasty Pot’ which is three storey high restaurant at Sunway, I decided to give it a try last weekend.

As expected, the crowd was over spilling and the time it takes for the waiter to serve us was quite long. Nevertheless, with a large amount of customers, it is understandable that we would need to wait. Anyway, here are the food that we ate.

The seafood were very fresh. My favourite was the crab and prawns.

Can’t wait to put these into the boiling soup. Yummy!

I also took some sotong and mussels, clams…

And while waiting for our soup to boil (we opted for clear soup and tomyam), we had some ready made food to fill our stomach first. The roast chicken was quite good. Not up to Yuen’s standard (they are famous for it) but it was very tasty too.

And for something different, they have fresh clams with fried shallots dipped with sour gravy. I had two of these. Highly recommended.

And for variety, we opted for some fresh vegetables, ham and sea weed.

I also chose some assorted fishballs and ‘tau foo pok’.

One of the best thing I heard about Tasty Pot is that you can actually request them to barbecue the meat that you have picked. The BBQ lamb was very nice and tender. The black pepper sauce goes well with the meat.

But that was just the teaser. We had hand picked a few crabs and prawns for them to barbecue too. After 10 minutes, we went back to the counter and was pleasantly surprised with a plate of lip smacking crabs and prawns.

Trust me, they are really good. The guy who did the barbecuing has some good skills indeed. The meat were nicely cooked, retaining all the freshness of the taste. It is also crispy on the outside while the meat were moist.

I can’t help but to take a few shots of the food…

And finally we had noodles (green version), egg and vegetables for our ‘finale’ dish.

Overall, I find Tasty Pot really urm, tasty. Food is fresh and the BBQ meat is a real plus factor. Highly recommended!
