    Meletop, which means "explode" in Bahasa does somehow goes well with this steamboat place. Perhaps it's the soup, where the flavours are indeed 'explosive', or perhaps the choices of marinated meat and seafood; we wouldn't know. But what we do know is the fact that they offer quite an extensive range of buffet spread, which includes their really unique blend of sauces as well! Fresh vegetables, decent seafood and plenty of balls; cause that's what we love most! In short, this 2-storey steamboat place certainly is quite the catch.

    Yes, it's a fairly generic name for a restaurant, and possibly one of the worst names to search of Google as it tends to lead you someplace else. Thankfully, Foodadvisor is here and we will do our best to make them stand out a little more from the public. Quite surprisingly, despite having a generic name, Johor Steamboat is a pretty popular place. Not only is the sign bright and obvious, the design of the space too is comfortable and well ventilated, which at the end of the day, is the most important. A huge variety with plenty to choose from, it's only with time that they get more and more popular.

    Putrasmoke BBQ & Steamboat

    Those that aren't a fan of red might want to sit outside as the seating indoors are packing a punch with both red and black. It's also a lot more ventilated outdoors, so yeah. One great thing about Putrasmoke BBQ & Steamboat lies within their principles, where they emphasize on the fact that they do not control a buffet spread, and will allow you to take as much as you like, and will continue to refill they you stop. Which is great. The seating is fairly comfortable and the choices are sufficient. All and all, it's a nice to have a meal.

    Have you ever felt so hungry, that you could eat 2-3 servings of food and end up spending way more than you're supposed, too? No fret, Bucida's got you covered. Jokes aside, Bucida's Garden BBQ & Steamboat is just the right place to spend when you're short on cash. After all, their buffet price starts at only RM18-22 for adults; which is pretty worth it, if we may add. However, it's an outdoor-ish kind of eatery so be prepared to sweat bucket(s). Though it's not the fanciest place to dine, it does serve its purpose.

    Be prepared to get down and dirty when dining at Harz. Located in a small shoplot, most of the customers sit and eat at open-air seated tables outside. The buffet spread is located inside, so there will be a little more work required. However, there are quite a number of items available, just don't go overboard and take everything without knowing whether you can finish it or not. Regardless, it's a unique street styled steamboat experience. What's most important is you can enjoy dirt cheap steamboat with many ingredients to choose from, albeit most are pretty generic items.

    When it comes to hot pot, the generic broth consists of either clear soup or herbal base. Well, Bangkok Village prefers otherwise. If hot and spicy is your cup of tea, why not grab a challenge to try out the burning hot tom yam steamboat here? Be warned though, you might need a couple of iced drinks along with your meal. Additionally, you can also nibble on sweet and savoury Thai appetizers here like mango sticky rice and papaya salad. In short, Bangkok Village BBQ Steamboat is more than just a steamboat place!
