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
All hungry people already asking me to quickly snap on the pic.
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.
