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.

Update: Shabu Shabu King is permanently closed

best or not? hehehe

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.

    […] After reading this entry from KYSpeaks on KY eats – SS2 Shabu-Shabu KING Steamboat […]

  17. […] Now some of you noobs might have not heard of fondue and be wondering wtf it is. Basically chocolate fondue is steamboat western style. Instead of meat, fish, and vege, you get fruits. In place of soup, there’s chocolates. Where there should be the fire/stove, you get a tiny little candle. Best of all, you get the same calorie intake from the chocolate despite it being just a snack. […]

  18. […] 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. […]

  19. […] Once seated, we were asked for the choice of soup. Unlike, say, Shabu Shabu King, we were able to have both the tomyam and clear soup in the same hotpot. We headed to the buffet line right away. The selection of items in this restaurant is bigger than the previous two restaurants mentioned, and they are not stingy on the more expensive items either. Plenty of big shrimps (both salt and fresh water), crab, squid, and shell fish for the taking. They were all pretty fresh too. […]

  25. Have you guys try Kepong Manjalara Steamboat before.I think alot people know that there have alot of stemaboat shop but I will renconmend 1 shop which I consider nice and sort of PLC ( Parng Lerng Cheng ~ Cantonese ).Firstly would like to introduce Tai Tau Steamboat ( Big Head Stemaboat,ahahaha ) just behind Ketam Steamboat which I more renconmend more on his “Ma Lark” or Spicy soup,actually you won’t feel spicy until your lips like double hot dog,ahahah.Atleats you still can taste the food and not feel that numb on your lips or toungue.Beside from that you can order side dish slicing pork meat and slicing lamb meat which you just celup for less than 1 min on the soup which I never known others in Kepong Manjalara have offer before.

    Actually per head is RM 13.80 and side order is RM5.00.

    Really PLC….
