Seems that Kepong is filled with quite alot of hotpot or steamboat places. Few months back, friend brought me to this little hidden area in Kepong for steamboat. Popo Steamboat Cafe is operating in a open space area with canopies at the yard. You can easily miss the signboard if you are driving as at the edge of a junction and also slightly uphill.
there are quite a number of soup base to hit on. There are 8 types of soup: Superior Pork Bone soup, Szechuan Peppery soup, Teochew soup (served with fish slices), ABC, vegetarian, Peppery Piggy Stomach Soup, clear and tom yum soup. All of the soups are priced at RM 7 and RM 23. Those of you order clear soup, if is provided for free.
While there are only 3 of us, it seems again that we over order. I was there to eat as the food is pretty much order by my friend. Soup base: Superior Pork Bone Soup and to my surprise it is claypot steamboat which is not your typical version that is with the metal pot.
I am suprise to taste how good the soup is. Slightly thick and pack with flavour and creamy. loving it.
Beef slices here are not too bad as on the local meat quality, I cant comment much and best it is freshly sliced.
As my friend are craving for their fried rice, I must say it is one of a very good plate. Fried to perfection that the grains are filled with wok hei, dry enough that can be counted by each grans, topped with pork lard and ham. – a dish must order.
Love their lamb slices as it is thinly cut
Other ingredient that we usually order which is not too bad.
This will certainly be one of the steamboat in Kepong that I will return because of both pricing and quality.
