Best Steamboats in Petaling Jaya

Written by Updated ago

Steamboat is one of Malaysian’s favourite method of having a feast together. Apart from the usual 9-course Chinese meal, or perhaps even ordering in a restaurant, there is no doubt that Steamboat actually brings us closer together as family or friends. Each and everyone, putting in their favourite ingredients into soup the love most, sharing the joy and happiness together and finally, indulging into some sinful meat, fish, tofu and many more. Furthermore, the are no limitations to what you can put into a pot of soup as the options are extremely wide. It ranges from the regular fish balls to vegetables, thinly sliced meat to seafood, some even a whole piece of chicken. The question is, which steamboat restaurants provide the best steamboat? Hence, here is a compilation of the steamboat (and BBQ) in PJ!

    Fat One Steamboat (buffet)Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Fat One Steamboat originated from our very Malaysian-styled steamboat by the road – the “Lok Lok”. After several years, they’ve succeeded in claiming a spot for their very first restaurant. Offering over 100 items which include the BBQ section that they’re widely famous for. The soup itself was pretty average, but the choices make up for it. Especially the chicken wings! Lovely! If you have a perception that vegetables are only a mundane part of offering, you're absolutely wrong. Assorted fresh fungi, vegetables and fruits lure for a balanced meal.  

    Tips

    Alcoholic drinks available but not included in the buffet pricing.

    Things to expect

    Tight and intense space with barely and room for walking. Tons of items to choose from with some being taken quicker than others.

    Best with

    Cold tea provided.

    Price

    RM38.00

    The steamboat here in Yezi will bring you a totally new experience as you dine on some of the freshest and quality ingredients. Specialising in their signature broths from Coconut to Mushroom bases (total of five premium broths), you will be able to taste a large variety of flavours you can hardly find elsewhere. In addition to that, they are also very focused on making their ingredients from scratch and in the freshest state, ensuring you eat only the best you can find out there. In all likelihood, the best way to wrap up a steamboat session is a few shots of ice cream, and here you'll be greeted with Homemade Fragrant Coconut Ice Cream.

    Bobogo SteamboatPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Bobogo Steamboat is a new concept, or rather, attempt in the Malaysian steamboat industry. Featuring 3-tiers, each with its own purpose. Starting from the top, it is a small pot that allows the steam of the soup from the base to rise and steam your favourite seafood. The second tier, which is the middle, is a grilled powered by only steam from the base. Last but not least, the foundation of everything, the soup. With both the tomyam and chicken broth, you'll get to enjoy the best of both worlds. Spicy, sweet, light and aromatic. Bobogo Steamboat is certainly well worth the visit.

    Tips

    BBQ Grilling only available at night.

    Things to expect

    A casual restaurant with a wide array of items to choose from.

    To our surprise, Hometown steamboat wasn’t just famous for its good tomyam broth and fresh ingredients, but the chocolate fondue as well. Therefore, it's where savoury hunters and sweet tooths go hand to hand. After a hearty meal of assorted meats, vegetables and ocean catches all poured into a flavourful and spicy tomyam soup, a delectable fondue definitely is a unique way to end the meal. Also, being priced at a nifty RM19.90 with generous portions of ice creams and other confectionaries, it's great for sharing and the social media. 

    Tips

    Might want to arrive earlier if you do not wish to wait for a table. Preferably before 7pm.

    Things to expect

    Tight and intense space with barely and room for walking. Slow service.

    halal

    Pak John Steamboat has really taken the country by surprise. Since their debut in eCurve, Damansara, they’ve offered thick slices of smoked duck meat and it's free flow! Now that's rhythm to ears! Not to mention they had more than 100 items on the menu, not including their freshly made burgers, dim sum, waffles and various other desserts and drinks. They sure know that variety is the spice of life. Last but not least, all available broth were pretty flavourful as well! Since it's labelled as Halal, one can bring over a diverse crowd. 

    Tips

    If you love the smoke duck, don’t refill too quickly as they might tell you they’ve finished. (But that’s a lie, as when we asked another person to go, they have stock)

    Things to expect

    Pretty spacious place with a somewhat oily floor, good service and lots to choose from.

    Best with

    Cold Jasmine Greentea.

    Two Pesos SteamboatNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Two Pesos is one of the latest addition to the steamboat enterprise. Along with their concept of “individuality” – they’ve taken steamboat to another level. There are a total of 12 different types of steamboat set and style with each being absolutely different from one another and delicious too. On one hand, you can opt for the Vegetarian set which consists of only vegetables along with a light vegetable broth or perhaps you could go for the Mongolian set, which has a unique way of steaming your ingredients with a different soup-base.

    Tips

    Arrive early, best before 6.30pm as the queue starts then – usually with a 15-20minute wait. They also offer take-away steamboat.

    Things to expect

    Individual set steamboat with your own set of burner (not attached to the table) and pretty tight dining space. Vibrant and responsive workers as well.

    Best with

    Cold Passionfruit.

    Price

    As the name suggests, this is the place for coconut steamboat. It is also one of their signature broth, the implementation of coconut within give it a subtle yet noticeable flavour and depth, something that most people would enjoy. Furthermore, the restaurant is well ventilated and designed quite nicely. Proper wooden chairs with built-in electric cookers, warm lighting and a modern twist certainly does bring this place to life. Accompanying the coconut broth would be an array of premium meat and seafood, as well as vegetables and noodles. Steamboat buffs may baulk at first, yet it's sure to become one of your favourite steamboat broth. 

    Tips

    Come early if you do not want to queue.

    Some call it shabu-shabu, some call it steamboat, regardless of what they name it, it's quite evident that this place is another great spot for steamboat. Quite a number of items on the menu aside from the steamboat is fairly traditional, one that is taken from Taiwan. Whatever's left on the steamboat section is pretty straight-forward. Good slices of meat, fresh seafood and an array of vegetables to compliment. The other great thing about Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot is the mix-and-match of sauces. Tens of combination and different flavours! Full-fledged steamboat experience on cards!

    No one can deny that Sukiya is one of the best, if not most commonly visited steamboat or shabu-shabu place. The restaurant concept is simple, semi-quality meat at an incredibly affordable price with 4 unique broths as well as a wide range of vegetables, tofu and assorted seafood. People who come here aren't looking for the freshest of the freshest, but rather, a place where they can feast non-stop without worrying about the bill. Last but not least, they also have a surprisingly stunning soft serve machine that offers two different flavour - green tea and chocolate.

    Dian Huo Xin Wo excels in several things – their homemade meatballs and their broth. The variety of meatballs are made fresh every day and laid on a large sheet. It is then molded into a shape of a ball upon order. Each ball has its unique sense of flavour and texture and not one is alike. The tom yam broth too, was exceptionally good. Clear looking broth at first sight but extreme excitement upon the first sip – a great use of the sentence “Do not judge a book by its cover”!

    Tips

    Unfortunately, the soup-base has to be paid for. But we assure you, its worth it!

    A clean and spacious environment with plenty of balls to choose from.

    TST Hot Pot 天上天火锅

    This is what Malaysians mean when they say 'cheap cheap good good'! Not only is this place wallet-friendly, their steamboat is enough to have you salivating by smell alone. Though mostly known for their delicious Pork Bone Soup, those who like to live a little dangerously can opt for their Ma Lat that's both equally numbing and tantalising. Their fresh ingredients only make their already tasty broths even more of a flavour-bomb!
