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.

    OIC Greentown has been the place for many to gather, have fun and enjoy a great, hearty meal. Not only is it an all-you-can-eat, the quality of ingredients for their buffet spread too is pretty decent. Sure, there'll definitely be a section for frozen balls and what not, but the main dishes such as sliced meat and seafood are a delight. On top of that, there's also an option to grill your favourite seafood! Like many Malaysians, we tend to be greedy, wanting the best of both worlds and at OIC Steamboat, you'll get the best of both worlds.

Their best includes Wagyu beef slices, Australian lamb, and Berkshire pork loin. Each of these sets comes with their respective sides of vegetables and assorted balls.

    Particularly at this branch, for an additional RM10 per head, you can request for their Thai barbeque pit as well. Ingredients are fresh and although barbeque is preferred here, the amazing hotpot is not to be underestimated as the broth packs a good punch of flavours. Finish off your meals with some selection of desserts such as pudding and ice cream. Prices are affordable and thus, caters to many age groups and working class. Also, children below 100cm in height eat for free! As per the name, nothing short of good times is expected here.

    Spicy Hotpot Restaurant lives up to its name with its Signature Chongqing chicken base which is spicy and delicious. Non-spicy food fans, fret not, as there is also non-spicy options here. Ingredients such as fish heads, meat and seafood are abundant alongside various types of vegetables. The hotpot here is much thick and rich compared to the other steamboat broths in the list, which might remind you of assam pedas and it is exactly that which makes Spicy Hotpot special. And you can enjoy your meal with servings of rice.
