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.

eam huat (2)

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.

eam huat (1)

eam huat (3)

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

eam huat (4)

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.

eam huat (5)

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.

eam huat (6)

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.

eam huat (7)

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

eam huat (8)

eam huat (10)

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

eam huat (9)

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.

eam huat (11)

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.

eam huat (12)

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.

After a good meal on their first outlet which is at Pavilion at Tokyo street, now they have opened another outlet in Paradigm mall, one of the mall that I often drop by as its near my working place. Suki-Ya : Eat All You can Shabu-Shabu from RM29.80++ which is more Japanese authentic steamboat. This would not be my first time for this brand and upoh their new outlet opening, we decided to drop by again as their price for buffet lunch is very reasonable at RM 29.80++ that only offer you a spot for maximum 2 hours.

Sukiya (1)

Here would be the price of the buffet with operating time ..

Sukiya (3)

Surprisingly its quite pack or its full house ..

Sukiya (4)

Sukiya (5)

Dining area in this outlet would be slightly different as they have some private rooms available. .

Sukiya (6)

In this counter that offer variety of vegetable for your shabu shabu . .

Sukiya (7)

Sukiya (8)

What do they have for deserts is ice-cream in 3 flavours.

Sukiya (9)

Sukiya (10)

This is my favourite that we can order unlimited of fine cut meat slices, Chicken, Lamb and Beef.

Sukiya (11)

If you ask me which soup base is the best, I still vote for my favourite Suki-Ya soup base, which is abit more salty authentic taste of Japanese flavour that I have tried, but for me dipping too much of red meat into the soup, it turns not so good. . 😀

Miso is not bad after you concrentrate heavily on Sukiya and Kimchi I do not really like it.

Sukiya (12)

Sukiya (13)

Here we are, enjoying our meal and MC really whack alot of the meat. While saying full. . keep eating. .

Sukiya (14)

For a price like this, I would say its a buffet spread that worth a try as it only allow you to enjoy 2 hours dinning which is far more than enough.

Others you can try:

  1. Mikoshi – Uptown Damansara
  2. Mo-Mo Paradise – Lot 10
  3. Kuro – Plaza Arkadia

I have been to a few movie premier but not as official as this. As I was lucky to be invited for a movie premier that host it with cast and director came out for appearance. . As Chines Hungry ghost month is approaching soon as where you can see upcoming release of movies into the cinema will be a few films on ghost movie Greedy Ghost.

One of the latest one that had just open Greedy Ghost, that is, directed by Boris Boo from a story planned by executive producer Mark Lee which is no stranger to us in most if you do watch Singapore movie, along brings together a cast of Taiwan’s Kang Kang , Singapore’s Henry Thia, Malaysia’s Jesseca Liu and Brendan Yuen.

Greedy Ghost (3)

On the premier itself, all the main movie cast appear and they are wonderful, friendly and entertaining, especially Henry Tia or known as ah Hui in most of the movies. As most of him we seen him act in the movie is already funny and you should see him talking to the rest live. Very entertaining person and the rest telling how they felt about the role in the movie.

Greedy Ghost (4)

Didnt know that Jessica Liu is from Malaysia, as she is just stunning and pretty that amaze most of us on that night. She holds a role as Brendan Yuen’s girlfriend and you must see how she got splash with rubbish water in the movie. Yeww!

Greedy Ghost (5)

Signing off on the movie poster and here we go and be prepare to scream with laughter.

Genre: Comedy/ Horror

Lim (Kang Kang) which had been a very unlucky person, that what ever he do always end up bad! As he is having bad times in struggling career and life, while complaining to Fat and Hui on their steamboat dinner below their flat, then suddenly a person jump to his death landed on their eating table. A book fell next to his bag and took it without realising.

After his bath and on his fan to cool it off, when the book start flipping and suddenly he see’s numbers in it. Then voices been calling his name to buy Toto with the number he had seen. He did not believe the numbers and while watching the tv, a programm where most Singaporean will sit front of their tv to see if they hit jackpot. Unbelievable, the number he seen is all correct! AS the night itself he seek on ‘Wordless Script’ to give him numbers again, and the book forewarns Lim that he will have to pay a heavy price, should he wants big winnings. Blind by greet, he obey everything. Many Things happens after that.

 

Heee, as some of you might have seen my previous post on Famous Yew Char Kuih & Ham Chi Peng that is located next to them, is actually related as I went on the same day. Lets head to next door which is the famous Zi Wei Yuen Steamboat Restaurant which is very famous in Raja Uda. One of the reason they are famous is because of the soup base, which is the only super important ingredient for steamboat.

zi wei (1)

I have been talking with my family and friends to come and dine at this restaurant for like bout 1 n half years already till date it was all wrong timing and since this round I am quite free and my friends love this restaurant, the agreed without any hesitation since its their favorite also.

zi wei (2)

To make an efford here, it is highly advise to reach here before 7pm or after 9pm as during peak dinner hours, you have to fight with  many families to get a spot in the area as its super pack.

zi wei (3)

This is what I mean as those who are standing are hunting for a table, so you better disperse your family members or friends to get a spot.

zi wei (4)

We lazy to order what is in the menu therefore we go for their set dinner, my friends opted for the most expensive set RM220 that consist of at least 10-14 items if I am not mistaken.

All the hungry people are ready in action . .

One of the thing that they are famous for is their special signature Fish Head Steamboat that available in two version, with fried fish head or the steam type. We choose the steam type then another attraction is that their soup base is milky version that you cant really find that in Penang and mostly I would say its the KL version.

Not only that, they use charcoal steamboat version to make it more nice. I only have charcoal steamboat when I went back to my grandmother’s village at some where deep in mainland only get to enjoy it.

 

zi wei (11)

This is what happen when the pour everything inside and waiting for it to boil as charcoal takes time to make it cook.

Find that the soup base is aromatic and sweet, as you can taste that they really take something to boil it long time to make it there and milky version of soup just make it look interesting. As you refill the soup many times then the soup gets more salty towards the end and the base.

zi wei (13)

Another thing that best pair with the steamboat is their own homemade chili sauce, that dip along with the ingredient is just perfect.

After a while after the dinner most of us gets very thirsty and I guess that they have added on alot of MSG to make us drink lots of water after that. No doubt that the soup base is good that we drank alot of the soup and just need to drink alot of water hours later. 😀

Its pretty good and worth to try. . .

When you are in downtown shopping, in Pavilion, there are something new for you guys to explore is the newly renovated Tokyo Street located on the 6th floor in Pavilion. Its a section that house many Japanese eateries, Japanese products and some house hold goods for you to explore. After they have open quite a while, this is my first time being here and SukiYa is one of my favourite.

sukiya (1)

Under this section, the whole area is filled with Japanese ambiance with their look and feel of all those outlets.

sukiya (2)

The outlets that are in the middle section are all mostly build with Japanese wooden concept, and lanterns at the side of the shop.

sukiya (3)

sukiya (4)

Most of the restaurant here sell fusion food  . ..

sukiya (5)

Japanese Desert – Mochi Sweets.

sukiya (6)

Another Japanese Restaurant .. .

sukiya (8)

As for this round, we are trying out this outlet that offer buffet spread which is Suki-Ya : Eat all you can Sukiyaki & Shabu Shabu, which is more like a Japanese Steamboat. . .

sukiya (9)

The ambiance is not bad that is pretty well design that if you come in big group they can combine all the tables for you in one section.

sukiya (10)

Sauce wise is pretty limited in selection . . .

sukiya (11)

Healthy bar that offer a good selection’s of greens to be put into shabu shabu . .

sukiya (12)

sukiya (13)

sukiya (14)

There are only 3 choices of soup available, Shabu-Shabu which is more like a clear soup and I heard the table next to me mention that the soup is tasteless. . .then we opt for Sukiyaki and Kimchi Soup.

Among the 3, Sukiyaki is the best as the taste of the soy is pretty strong which reflects to the original taste I had before, not too salty and its quite aromatic. .  Recommended among those 3. . For Kimchi, under Japanese restaurant.. not as good as you tried in those Korean restaurant. So close one eye .. .

sukiya (15)

sukiya (16)

Then on the paper they teach you all the steps how do you do the best shabu shabu out .. 🙂

sukiya (17)

We opt for the healthy options and pour everything in . . .

sukiya (18)

Then you get free flow of thin slice, Lamb, Beef and Chicken . . .The best of all is Lamb follow by Chicken then Beef as the beef slice I find it taste funny or we rate it as a low grade beef slice!

sukiya (19)

For beef slice, its pretty simple and quick that you just take a slice and dip it for about 10 seconds then its done . .

sukiya (20)

Then we had the sauce as the Sesame sauce is GOOD that you must request and normally I eat most of my food with their special homemade chili sauce.. A bit sour, chopped with lots of garlic and a bit spicy, that pair well with all the meat that I have. ..

My friend taught that, take a raw egg and stir it well, then after the meat had cook, dip it and eat along with any sauce it just perfect!

sukiya (21)

Then would let you finish off with Ice cream . .

The service here is good as they have alot of staff on duty and our slices of meet constantly got refill and the best part is the manager drop by and ask you, do you want more refill which we had raise white flag as this would be the first time that the staff ask do you want more!

For a price like this in Suki-ya I would say its a buffet spread that worth a try as it only allow you to enjoy 2 hours dinning which is far more than enough.

Adult (lunch) – RM 29.80 ++
Kids (lunch) – 50% disc off buffet price

Adult (Dinner) – RM33.8- ++
