While much like Shabu Shabu King at SS2, Mizi Shabu Shabu at Bandar Puteri Puchong has a few distinctions that seperates it from it’s SS2 counterpart. First of all, the restaurant does not offer buffet, if the portion of the set meal (which is quite generous) is not enough to feed a suan (for example), then you’ll have to order more from the ala carte.

However, I do think that this is a good thing. You only order what you want, avoiding the necessary gluttony temptation of the buffet line.

Nice setting with good selection off the menu

Another welcoming difference at Mizi is the personalised steamboat set up. Each diner gets his or her own pot, which you can then customised the soup to your own liking. Add more chilli, crack an egg into it, more vege, make it boiling, or not, all without pissing off your friends who might like to have thiers differrently. As a side effect, you have a lesser chance of getting that contagious disease your friends are carrying, too.

You get your personal stove with customizable heat setting

I do feel that the food at Mizi Shabu Shabu is fresher compared to Shabu Shabu King. The sliced meat is usually still frozen when served. Some noob have been describing Shabu Shabu King as eating fishball with different shapes and colors, I reckon the same can’t be said about Mizi.

Service is very fast, as the kitchen prepared most the set meals in advance and placed them in the fridge. All the waiter has to do is to just grab what you order, no further preperation needed since the serving are all uncooked anyway. This set up reminds me of McDonald’s & Burger King.

Making you hungry for some of these yet?

Price wise, for a medium stomach it is not too different from Shabu Shabu King. You can satisfy your hunger for around RM 15-25 depending on your selection. If you like the former, I’m sure you will enjoy this place. Nicer seats, better environment, and overall a great set up, unless your appetite is extraordinary.. Give it a try.

SS2 Shabu Shabu KING steamboat
best or not? hehehe

Suan joined myself and kerol (don’t worry, no pictures of her this time) for dinner. As usual, that lady can never suggest where to eat, but was extremely good at saying “NO” to every suggestion I can come up with. Somehow we ended up at this Shabu Shabu KING steamboat place at SS2 instead. This is a pretty new establishment at the area.

Shabu shabu actually means “swish swish” in Japanese, and usually associated with cooking very thin sliced beef in hot water. Since the steamboat ingredients are of the fast to cook variety, I guess the name is pretty appropriate. However, shabu can also carry an entirely different meaning, as described here.

fresh and raw stuff before boiling

The restaurant serves 3 different types of soup, Miso, Clear, and Kimchi. As we only had one steamboat, we chose clear and kimchi (extra RM5.) The trick in making the soup tastes good is by boiling shell fish and crabs in it first to extract the aroma from the seafood. Do not keep adding new soup to water it down either, unless you absolutely have to.

settings were mediocre, but air conditioned tho

The variety of items offered were quite generous, there were prawn, flower crab, sliced beef, sliced chicken, tofu, various vegies, egg, seaweed, squid, cuttle fish, imitation crab (was very good,) various types of fish ball and fish paste, scallop, clam, mushroom, and more. They also offer quite a big selection of dipping sauce and chilli to go with the steamboat. These include soya sauce, chilli padi, diced garlic, taiwanese satey sauce, wasabi, chicken rice chilli sauce, and more.

Other than the those main ingredients, ice water, tea, and ice lemon tea are also free flow. There were also about 8 types of dessert for your choosing, I think suan and kerol each had about 4-5 types *gasp*.

map, nice yeh?

For RM 20 nett per person, it was pretty good and worth the money paid for. I think if you go after 10:30 pm it’s even cheaper, like RM 15 per pax or something like that.
