During a particular Saturday evening a few weeks ago, I was loitering online and saw Eiling came on. As both of us were feeling hungry and haven’t had a plan for dinner, she decided to introduce her favorite Steamboat restaurant to me, Wan Hou at SS14.

look at the lady enjoying

The air-conditioned and clean interior is a welcoming change from most other steamboat places. I’ve always found steamboat goes best with clear soup, and the soup here is rather flavorful, I suspect the involvement of pork bones in preparing them.

order set, or ala-carte. love the condiments

For two of us, we ordered a set for one, a big portion of their famous meatballs, half portion of fish ball, and another half portion of their fish wantan look-alike thingy.

When you are at Wan Hou, do remember to ask for their special sauce that is made with sesame oil, fried shallots, garlics, chili padi, and if I remember correctly, apple vinegar. This condiment goes really well with clear soup steamboat, you just have to try it.

oh, glorious pork meat balls!

The ingredients were fresh and the set actually pretty big. There were plenty of vegetable, tofu skin, assortments of fish balls and meatballs, prawn, egg, noodle, and even half a corn. A pretty nice combination.

However, the most important thing at this steamboat place has got to be the pork meatballs. Larger than usual and very firm and juicy. It tasted just like how pork meatballs should, succulent and flavorful, it was probably the best I’ve had. I will go there again just because of this!

Wan Hou Steamboat is opposite Metropolitan College

I believe we spent less than RM40 there and yet came out very satisfied. There are other items in the menu I haven’t tried, but I am sure that wasn’t the last time I go to Wan Hou.

    secret date ok! :p

    make it happen! πŸ˜€

  12. eh.. never bring me also. blueks!

  13. hmm…i tend to agree with you about this shop. I accidentally come across this shop at a time when im lazy to drive to sri petaling for “ho ho” steamboat.

    This shop is cool, and “clean” run by a friendly old couple. The soup is “cukup api”. for tomyam, u need to pay addtional RM5(or it is 10?) for the tomyam paste. i prefer the clear soup over the tomyam.

    this shop is really a hidden gem for steamboat lover. it makes “ho ho” rather amateur.

    this is the only steamboat join so far that dun make me feel thirsty after “clearing” out all the soup.

  14. ooo…
    KY and hot chic went STIMBOOB!!!
    hmm… πŸ˜›
