Best Steamboats in Ipoh

Written by Updated ago

Locally called 'steamboat' but commonly referred around the world as 'hot pot', a steamboat meal is loved by locals mainly for its practice. Sitting around a table with a hot pot of stew right as the centrepiece while sharing dinner and having conversations with family and friends is truly a warm and loving experience. While steamboats are best enjoyed in cold weather, we Malaysians are practically chameleons whenever it comes down to good food. Who cares about the hot and humid weather? If we want some good steamboat, we will have some good steamboat! It’s as simple as that. So check out these spots in Ipoh where you'll be able to find a hearty meal.

    Restoran Shabu Shabu & Stimboat is indeed a really huge place. This 'kampung' style decor has more than 100 variety of fresh seafood, meat, vegetables and more. The contrast of design from both the interior and exterior is quite vast as internally, the place is modern, clean and well maintained while the exterior remains pretty traditional. With its brightly lit exterior, one can certainly spot them from afar, which is great! As for the buffet spread, you'll not only get the standard range of meat and vegs, but rather, a section where ready made items such as satay, grilled fish, grilled crab and many more are served.
