Charcoal? What do you think about it? I was told that anything that used charcoal to cook makes a wonderful dish. I agree to that point as I have seen the difference of side by side that one use charcoal to cook and one use gas to cook and the taste is quite different.
Another thing which is, its pretty hard to find a hawker stall, or place to use charcoal to cook besides this famous eatery place Pan Heong located at Batu Caves. Nontheless there is a new kid on the block in Bandar Puteri that started its business 6 months ago that use charcoal for steamboat. This is certainly a rare one in the area or a rare one for charcoal steamboat in Klang Valley.
I was brought by a friend to dine here as he mention its a pretty good one if you love steamboat as the soup is a big kick. When I heard about the name, I thought of the movie Hidden Tiger Crouching Dragon and got very curious and ask about the name. How the name Dragon Tiger gate came about was the dish itself as it was meant for a dry cook dish yet the owner turn it into soup base that makes it to another different level.
Love the interior of the place as its very classic with yet simple chinese finishing with huge wooden thick door with side window ..
Every table here is filled with one side rack for extra dish to be stored.
Price here are very decent for such an ambiance. .
2 of their soup base and their signature is Dragon Tiger Broth . .
Menu here are pretty straight forward.
All their condiments are made in house too as one of my favourite chili sauce is the one at 12 o’clock, as i finish 3 of it.
High grade charcoal are used here as the whole restaurant is in air condition and to prevent it to be very smokey. Yet fire remain small and nice to make the pot at hot temperature.
Dragon Tiger Broth are a bit on spicy base as they add in with chili oil yet the base is filled with some fresh milk and pork broth is certainly aromatic. Highly Recommended. Pork Bone Broth is quite normal compare to their signature.
If you order single flavour base for Dragon Tiger Broth it is serve along in Claypot that will bring different flavour to it when burn under charcoal. (I will certainly try that next visit)
All of us getting ready to pour everything into the hotpot ..
for seafood lovers, they do have fresh seafood here but do ask them first before you order as I find that some of them are fresh some are not.
the usual ordering. .
If you love slice meat, then here is a must order as we order, Beef, lamb and pork slices. All 3 are equally good. My favourite is beef or lamb.
Since Chinese NEw YEar is few days away, and looking for a place for reunion dinner, I think this steamboat place will certainly make a great place to be as its air condition.
