Raja Uda - Zi Wei Yuan Steamboat

Since I move into "Mainland", I have been longing to try out this steamboat (since lots of people and blog site actually recommend it). Finally, it comes the day where we manage to find 1 Saturday to have dinner at this place.

The outlook of the restaurant. The restaurant is located at Jalan Raja Uda, it is just besides the road with a big signboard place outside of the restaurant. We arrived early (around 7.00pm) and the crowd is not there yet. So, we chose a nice place just infront of the shop.

Happy little girl again...she is always happy and excited each time we brought her out.

This is where they prepare the soup for the steamboat. The special about the soup is that it is cooked with yam, so the color of the soup is very different with the normal "eat-all-you-can" steamboat we found at other place.

It is ala-carte, which means you can order the ingredients from the menu, the ingredients range from fish meat, fish head, prawn, sotong, pork, various vegetables and etc...

The fresh is fresh, so must be carefully handle in the steamboat so that it is not over cook or else the meat will be hardened.

Pig stomach...I prefer it to be slice more thin. It taste ok just that seems like got lots of fat on it.

Fish so only, taste like buying from the wet market, nothing special.

Golden mushroom, it is wet, and it taste like the can food. Not a good choice.

The sauce is nice. It taste authentic and really goes well with the steamboat, especially the pig stomach.

Here is the steamboat, see the color of the soup? It is white and you can actually find some yam at the bottom. good thing about this restaurant is that they still using the old method...charcoal to boil the steamboat, which is really hard to find nowadays (except my mom's steamboat).

However, one thing with using charcoal is that it is really hard to get the soup to boil as the charcoal takes time to go into burning mode.

So, this is how they speed it up!!!!

Blow direct into the place...

Fire in the hole!!!! And the soup start to boil...

Boiling soup, time to put in all the ingredients and eat!

The soup is really nice, we drank so much that they have to refill 3 times. :P

This restaurant is definitely worth a try!
