Those of you who love steamboat surely will know this famous Famous Fish Head Steamboat, Zi Wei Yuen Restaurant (紫薇園魚頭火炭爐) at mainland Raja Uda, Penang or a very glory well known brand in the island itself is Goh Huat Seng in Kimberly Street. Eam Huat Teo Chew Fish Charcoal Steamboat is one of a addition in my list that you should not miss.

For this place, it is a recent discovery when I am back for Chinese New Year, my friend introduce me his uncle that also operate a charcoal steamboat in Penang island for the past 9 months that had create his own regular clientele is this Eam Huat Teo Chew Fish Charcoal Steamboat that located infront of Central Park Condo at Jelutong Market here. Since he said its so good that I must die die also come, then I arrange all my best buddy with 10 of us to come attack on it.

The location is not so hard to find as you just need to locate this corner shop kopitiam that house with many other hawker stalls in this Kedai Makanan & Minuman Labu opposite the Jelutong Market.

If you have not decide to dine in here, the menu and pricing are all smack on its stall itself.

When we flip thru the menu, we are quite surprise to see the pricing of this steamboat, its quite cheap and definately generous in ingredient. If you do not know what to order, go for their set.

Since there are 10 of us, we go for their biggest set which is the RM200 and add on some ala carte just incase not enough.

The pot that they are using, is very classic with golden pot that uses charcoal to heat up the soup. Anything with charcoal, I am surely up for it as the taste is always better.

Here are all the dish being ordered, one of their signature item is Homemade meatballs and Fook Chau homemade fish ball are very delicious and chewy

This is the basic ingredient that given to us for a start as we have yet to add on any of the side dish we ordered yet. For a basic pot of soup, it comes with seaweed, deep fried bean curb, fish meat…and others. This Teo Chew steamboat is definitely different from the famous mainland as its not milky soup base, and the soup is very sweet by itself with fish meat and yam, we cannot imagine the amount of ingredients being used and hours to cook in it. All the seafood ingredient that being serve are fresh and good as the owner believe in serving fresh ingredient to his customer.

This is what happen when the pot got put down and with hungry people like them, the pot was clear within seconds, and we go on for 4 rounds. At the end of the night, every one is stuff and we could not even finish some of the ingredient.

At the end of the night, here is the cheeky boss that my friend keep pranking of him to get discount. As a result, we did not get any discount and our bill came about RM 250 with each person paying RM25 which is CHEAP for a steamboat quality like that.

Its good news for all of us that now we need not drive all the way to Raja Uda for a good steamboat, yet some of my friend prefer the famous Raja Uda steamboat, the difference is soup base quality. For me, I personally prefer this with less MSG detected as I do not drink as much water as I do compare to the other one. Certainly this falls into one of my recommended steamboat if you are craving for one, it wins because of pricing and quality.

There is no reservation allow as based on walk in only. Do note that their dinner time is pack with people and advise to go early.

Here I am, getting all excited and been waiting for the past 9 months been very torturing as I bought my flight ticket on Airasia during zero fair promo some year year 2009 end of the year, and I was very jealous those who make their journey to one of the food paradise Taiwan by capturing a lot of nice scenery too. Hence me and my friends feeling good travelling there as there are some pre-arrangements. 😉

Our flight there was the AirAsia-x which I thought that it was their smaller flight with those compact places and I was so worrying that what will happen to me after my 4 hours flight in that cramp seat. To my surprise that, the seats are eventually bigger and something similar to MAS economy class seats which I am happy off. The only difference is that there are no cabin crews serving us with free flow of beverage and in flight entertainment. The only thing is that, we need to pay what you want to eat including water. So be prepared to bring some Malaysia currencies and also it is advisable to bring your own gadgets like i-phone with games app, PSP or anything to keep you entertain during the journey. If not will be like us, growing mushroom and BORED to death! I guess this is one way of Budget airline goes.

It was a long queue under international travel lane but it took less than 5 mins to clear us off at the immigration, as this show efficiency.

Currency Changes is RM1 –> NT 10

As travelling from airport to Taipei city, we only have to choices that we known on that day, either you take a public bus which takes about 70-90 minutes depending on traffic and by Taxi is about half that time. We were in the hurry that day, so we opted to take Taxi and trust me, it doesn’t comes cheap as 1 taxi to our destination is NT1200 = RM120. 3 of us in a car so it was 2 taxi.

This trip we were on budget so, the arrangement that my friend had arrange was home stay that a lot of my friends say that we can go for Motel, which is cheap, nice and clean. Home stay would be like a risk to go after. What can I say, that home stay would be a good experience as this is our first time staying in this option.

Taipei Home Stay was the choice as it was recommend by one of the friend there, with its convenience to a subway LRT 1 minutes walk away, 7-11 3 mins walk away and 1 train stop away from Taipei Main Station.

Upon our arrival there, we were surprise to be greeted by the landlord herself and with her friendly character had make us feel that we had made the right choice.

When I see my room, I was astonish to see how nice my room and how cozy it feels like. It feels exactly like home with a mini kitchen, filled with a queen size bed and 2 optional sofas cum bed. Actually our room is to accommodate 4 pax and my brother and housemate last minutes cancel their trip due to work, so we are occupying the whole place for ourselves.

The room all the rooms are equip with cable TV with more than 80 channels to watch, wireless connection and basic necessities in the toilet. It cost us NT1100 per night, as extra pax will charge NT 200 each, therefore is NT 1300 per night. I cannot remember what is the TYPE of my room and advisable to copy and paste to let the onwer see.

Our Cosy bed to ly on as what we were told by the landlord lady, our room is quite brand new that just newly renovated by her compare with other rooms, this would be one of the good ones.

Toilet with basic necessity (soap and shampoo), please take note that they DO NOT PROVIDE TOWELS. Therefore you have to bring your own towels or buy it at the night market.

After we had settle down and take a quite bath, she asked us are we hungry and she insisted to bring us to one of the best Fried Chicken around the area which is definitely much better than the one in Shilin Night Market. When it comes to food, I was the first one to agree.
