Lot 10 is one of those shopping malls that has seen better times. Some 15 years ago, it was the premier place to shop, that was before Suria KLCC, before Mid Valley, and of course, before Pavilion.

These days, Lot 10 is keeping up with the newer malls by reinventing itself a little bit, starting with the excellent food court that is Hutong, and now, the Shabu One steamboat buffet restaurant. I’m not sure if that’s their strategy, but stuffing the mall with good food might just bring in the crowd.

I first got to know about this place from my colleague Sheng, who has a bit of a hobby in monitoring online group shopping deal sites. The dude brought 4 coupons to the Shabu One, so we headed over to Lot 10 for a Friday lunch without much expectations.

After all, the full price for lunch/dinner was only RM27.99+, and we had bought the coupons for something like another 40% off of that.

While the restaurant is certainly not very posh, it was clean and comfortable. If you’re looking for decorations the class of Shogun or Jogoya, this is not the place for you.

On the other hand, if you love steamboat with a good selection of seafood at reasonable price, this is the real deal!

There’re three types of soup to choose from: clear soup, tomyam, and ma-lak (嘛辣). We had our pot split between the ma-lak and clear soup.

To be honest, the ma-lak soup was a bit of a let down. The clear soup too was slightly bland, but nothing a bit of seafood (crab in this case) can’t fix. We didn’t try the tomyam soup, so I can’t commend on that.

The selection of food here is as good as anywhere else at this price point. I particularly love the super big clams they have on that day (not sure if it’s an everyday thing), along with the cuttle fish, lala, prawns, bamboo clams, and more. They are constantly being refilled too, which is always a plus.

Other than seafood you do get the usual suspects: plenty of fish ball lookalike and taste-alike stuff, big selection of vegetables, mushrooms, noodles, egg, and sliced beef.

There are also a buffet line of pre-cooked dishes such as fried noodle, curry chicken, hot and sour soup, sausages, tea leaf eggs and more so you can start stuffing your mouth from the get-go, before the steamboat is boiled.

As for desserts, the choices aren’t great. There’s ice cream, kuai leng gou, fruits, and a few other Chinese/Taiwanese jelly thingy. Then again, who has stomach for desserts when you go for steamboat?

Overall it’s a pretty decent place to go, pretty good value for what you have to pay, and I think we’ll be back again for some long lunches in the future.

Shabu One Steamboat Buffet

Discuss : KY eats – Shabu One (鼎旺) at Lot 10

  1. i been there.. there was weekend surcharge per head.. So, not worth having steamboat at there during weekend/PH, price killing!

  2. tempting! as long as all the seafood is fresh enough to not make us unhealthy, i’d give it a go! :D

  3. Not a huge fan of steamboats. Heh.

  4. Well, you can’t argue with the price! 40% off the list is pretty reasonable, the list price isn’t that bad too, but for then again I don’t mind paying slightly more than double for places like Jogoya with more options (oysters, good ice cream and cocktails).

    Is there a time limit where you can chill and talk with your friends?

    • Huai Bin: places like Jogoya is more like 3x the price tho, so this is still quite worth it, especially for “normal days” instead of special occasions :D

  5. Quite skeptical to try those clams (although they are huge) because it might be quite dirty with lots of sand or something on the shell :P

  6. food seems okay…price reasonable…

  7. oooh curi tulang while working yeah?
