There are quite a number of buffet steamboat restaurant in the market but how many of them are actually value for money and nice? Well, during CNY week, we were lazy to cook ourselves and there is a change of plan on changing restaurant as most of them decided to give it a try on this Umami Steamboat buffet with all you can eat that located right at Sunway Mentari.

A restaurant that will cater many people that they have actually taken up about 2 shoplot that offer lots of space.

Umiya (1)

Their business is quite good as when we left all the tables outside were taken out.

Umiya (2)

For me I still prefer to have my steamboat inside with some air condition if not I will be drench in sweat.

Umiya (3)

An advantage of this outlet is that they do offer bbq section with chicken wings. . .

Umiya (4)

BBQ Seafood like crab, sting ray, satay, prawns and squid.

Umiya (5)

Umiya (6)

Umiya (7)

On the inside for you to choose to hammer inside your soup base quite a selection of fish ball. . .

Umiya (8)

noodles and the usual item that we have.

Umiya (9)

Umiya (10)

Seafood lovers this section certainly is your choice with many types of seafood for you to choose from.

Umiya (12)

cold platter

Umiya (13)

Some mini buffet pan fried section . .

Umiya (14)

Fried stuff. . .

Umiya (15)

Best of all also you get to have free flow of slice meat which is my favorite

Umiya (16)

There are 5 soup base for you to choose from . . .as was told by one of the staff that Fish Head soup is one of the preferred by customer.

Umiya (17)

We tried on the Tom Yam Soup and Umami Chicken soup. Both of the soup turns out to be better than alot of places that we have tried before. . .

Umiya (18)

As for desert they do have jelly and Ice Cream to offer you  . .

Overall, with about total RM30 per head I find it quite okay on pricing and quality. If you ask me to choose, I would opted for other choices but if you plan to have a great steamboat range, Umami can be one of the choice in my list as I have tried others which is much worst that I don bother even to blog about it.

On the up side, this outlet is pork free that I see a few malay families dine in here.

I am keen to try out another outlet in Wangsa Maju as I was told by a friend that they over a very good range and cheap too. Will arrange to go luuu . . .

Adult: RM26.80++

After my Melacca food hunt trip few months back, me and my friends really wish that this shop actually open in KL but never did I thought I found one here at Balakong which I was on the way for a food review around the area and made wrong turn and found it.
Went to try out as we really miss the food from this shop when at Melacca and we thought that it is not the same or another copy cat but it was exactly the same and in their menu did not state another branch address.

Toast n Toast (3)

We were very hungry and start off with ‘Set-D, Fried Bee Hoon, Pudding and a drink (if not mistaken)’. The taste were rather plain and dissapointing. RM 9

  

Toast n Toast (4)

Of course with my favourite ‘Cinamon Toast’ but very light in taste which is almost like roti bakar kosong. RM1.80

Toast n Toast (5)

‘Otak-Otak Toast’ which is so little in ingrediant and not much to say about it. RM2.80

Toast n Toast (6)

‘Crunchy Toast’ by the look of it we were expecting it at least something we can enjoy but the peanut is like very soft that did not seal in tight air container. RM2.50

Toast n Toast (7)

‘Sour Sop Ice Blended’ was my best companion in that morning, the only thing which taste flavourful yet can suck some mini slices of sour sop. RM4.90

Toast n Toast (8)

‘Mango Pudding’ rather taste like from the instant packet.
It was rather a dissapointing breakfast for us, as I think we bring high expectation and good experience back from their branch at Melacca and came back here to eat with such a huge quality difference its kinda like a parent had lie to their kid that had promise to buy them sweets. Hopefully they improve in the future.

Melacca branch, sure we are going back for more. Click here for past review, Melacca.

Last trip a few of my best friend came down to KL for holiday. Then I was introduce to another fish head bee hoon shop in Kuchai Lama area. I did not know that, there is actually another shop too in the very same area, Win Soon Fish Head Noodle .

Win soon (1)

It was dinner time and the place was quite pack. Manage to grab a just only table to accommodate for all of us.

Win soon (2)

Latest menu as per my visit [March 2016]

In the menu, it is not much different compare to other shops that I have eaten so far.

Win soon (5)

As usual, I would order ‘Fish Paste and Fish Head Mee Hoon RM7.50. The soup base is not as strong as the other 2 stalls that I have went but still its not bad a taste of its own.

Win soon (6)

Then Tatt order ‘Fried Fish Head’ (Big) RM12.80. Its good. Crispy on the outer layer of the fish and the fish meat is soft yet the a bit salty gives the taste of it. All of us just hantam it.

Overall, I still like Kafe 2369 Fish Head Noodle cuz of the soup base aroma is strong enough.

update march 2016 : their quality had drop and no longer as good as it used to be.

Fish Head Bee Hoon seems like a hit at the moment as this would be the 2nd discovering of the restaurant but I have return to this kafe a few times already.

I love their version of ‘Fish Head Noodle’ as I felt that this shop had stronger taste that I quite prefer compare to other shops. A strong rice wine taste which doesn’t over power the Xo sauce and the milk taste yet sweet taste of the soup that add in the fried fish head is just nice~ RM7.50

As their ‘Fried Hor Fun’ looks good but taste average. It’s a bit starchy that makes the sauce quite thick and cannot really taste the ingredient that fried along with it. RM8.90

‘Claypot Noodle’ is quite pale in taste but added in some soy sauce and some chili given, it tasted not bad. RM7.90

With their pricing and the quality and I like their version of Fish Head but parking space could be a pain in the ass. Can double park around the shop.
