Steamboat Buffet

One thing I love about Bangkok is not only their transformation on public transportation that enable us to access conveniently to many places is that they have all this pedestrian walkway connection all malls and many other main spots as even it rain on that day, we are still able to walk to quite a distance to reach our destination instead of stuck in the mall itself or have to take cab while we are heading to this Taling Pling Thai Gastro Cafe.

I really wish that my country have this that can make the business grow also. Something  similar like Hong Kong. All acess to many malls and public transportation with shades.

Okay, after we head a very heavy lunch steamboat buffet (click here) we walk and shop for the last round before we are heading back as Day 3 we had shop quite alot too (click here on shopping destination in Bangkok)

As night proceeds, went back to hotel, shower and came back to this area again as to meet Goft for dinner. She wanted to bring us to another restaurant which is her favourite that often she brings her client to dine there, one of the reason is that after the dinner she wants to bring us to eat the best Mango desert and also to new sky bar around the area.

Shopping mall area around Central World that easily have at least 3-5 malls around that area.

As evening process when we came back to the same area, we were a bit suprise as now it is packed with street hawker as right outside this nice mall, there’s lots of food there you can hunt for. .

This is the restaurant that Goft want us to dine in, Taling Pling. A restaurant with solid reputation on its home cook style food that offers customer to dine in a very comfort contemporary experience.

Its a thick menu book and best of all, all dish comes with pictures even though IF its written in Thai I have no problem on pointing. Of course the menu do have english translation. Price is very reasonable or on the cheap side for this kind of ambiance.

We do not know what we have order again Goft is incharge of our food menu again.

t (17)

I have big problem on getting the food names and price now as I have lost the receipt .. .

t (18)

This tomyam is towards more sourish and the fiery red is just a colour. . .

t (22)

Tomyam is our favourite as its spicy, a bit milky taste, something more unique to us.

t (23)

Morning Glory Salad – stir fried vege along with prawns. Perfect to go along with rice, as some veggie had been deep fried then top on top.

t (24)

Spicy Squid, chewy and its fresh, sour at the end and fine chopped chili add the extra spice and minty taste .

t (25)

Pineapple fried Rice

‘Stir fry morning glory with garlic, chilli and oyster sauce’ @ 95 Baht

As walked in to the outlet, I saw the desert and cakes are pretty tempting and decided to order after we are so full. Told the rest how can we come here dine and walk out without trying off their desert.

Overall the food is good, as what Goft mention. Quality is there and prompt service from the crew. Price are very reasonable and if you would want some where clean with nice ambiance to enjoy pretty good Thai cuisine, no doubht that this is one of the restaurant to recommend.

On the down side is, don bother to try on the deserts or maybe I just had tried better ones before during my stay here.

Apologize on the lack of dish name and price.

In Kl, we have one of the most famous Taiwanese Desert which is Called Snowflakes, as when I visited Taiwan 2 years ago, I was a bit surprise to see that actually their concept is very similiar to Meet Fresh Taiwan (click here). In Taiwan, Meet Fresh is consider one of the famous brand for this desert.

So my dad been telling me about this place he want to try out. Previously he wanted to try out the Yea Japanese BBQ Steamboat Buffet located at Penang Times Square so brought him there. This round is this Taiwanese Desert so mark and done.

Meetfresh (1)

Now is the era of Taiwanese Desert that is bubbling every where in Penang and KL state that have attracted more than 20 brands and the latest arrive in Penang and KL shore is this Taiwan Famous desert Meet Fresh. In Taiwan itself they have more than 100 outlets around Taiwan and their history is in their wall which is pretty impressive.

The orignal 2 masters Mr. and Mrs.Fu originated from Central Taiwan believe that cooking desert in traditional way still the best way to preserve traditional taste of it. It is made daily by handmade of those taro balls and afew other ingredients to ensure customer enjoy freshness of it. More of it (click here)

As for this round, Meet Fresh is own by Wong Kok Group and if you ever want to consider this franchise, they are the best people to go after.

Meetfresh (2)

Like any other Taiwanese desert, after place your order, you will be given this alert item as while they are preparing the desert and once it is ready, it will beep and vibrate. Then only you head to the counter to pick up your desert.

Meetfresh (4)

As usual, will try out their signature or original taste as Meet Fresh Signature Herb Jelly  with its herbs ice base which is pretty solid in tastes and Taro balls is chewy towards hard side abit and herbs jelly is just nice. @ RM 6.90

Meetfresh (5)

Little Taro Balls in White  Gourd Tea @ RM 5.90

On the menu, I see the name of this drink is very unique and decided to give it a try, with top layer cover with foamy cream and stir it along it had become creamy white and filled little taro balls, its a bit on the sweet side and nothing to shout about.

Meetfresh (6)

On the other side, Soya is always one of my favorite. So to compare what’s the difference of it on Double Joy Soy bean with others as it just lack of extra [email protected] RM 8.90

Still Snowflakes (click  here) stands out more and in Penang, okay lah..if you are craving for nice Taiwanese deserts.

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 (11)

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 . . .

Pricing
Adult: RM26.80++

*Pork Free
