I had a surprised last week after tuition. Uiks....car were full of stuffs... Yup...another spontaneous trip balik kampung. Mamarazzi purposely didn't tell me about the trip so that I won't be restless during tuition.
Aiyaya.... memang like this one leh. We always do things spontaneously leh. Just like the week before this. A friend texted and asked us to go out for buffet ... think think think...where to eat ah? Then recalled one of Mamarazzi's ex-colleague posted in Facebook about this buffet style steamboat restaurant in Serdang.
Mamarazzi immediately called the number to make a reservation while her friend contact the rest of the gang. Unfortunately nobody from the restaurant answered the call . Mamarazzi sent a text message and shortly she received a confirmation from the restaurant. Off we went food hunting.
Guess what's the first thing I did when we arrived at the restaurant.... Check out the washroom. *LOL* . Yeah....long journey.... need to empty my bladder. Came out of the washroom, I immediately informed everyone that the washroom is air-conditioned. Wah lau eh.....!
There were large variety of food . Two tables seafood.
A table of red meat...marinated beef slices, lamb slices, chicken meat, marinated ikan kembung and etc.
A cooler of processed meat.
Ingredients for steamboat were store at a separate section. There were 3 or was it 4 cabinets full of vegetable, tofu, fishballs, meat ball, mushrooms and etc that goes well in steamboat.
For me, of course I choose those fruit juice.
Asked the staff . The lady explained that the first tier is for steaming. After steaming, we may place the cooked food on the 2nd tier to keep warm . Third tier is for BBQ meat slices. while the lowest is for steamboat.
If we want to BBQ chicken wings , crabs or fish... we can use the big grill provided at the other section.
Papa went there to grill some Chicken wings...
..fishes for us.
Mamarazzi went and "sapu" seafood.
Guess what I "sapu" first... yup..Ice cream. Wow Wee! They have two ice cream box/cabinet. One was the normal Nestle or was it Walls ice cream while the other was Yuyi ice.
Mamarazzi liked the Yuyi ice better than ice cream. Said tasted more refreshing.
Each paying adult is entitled to a live crab. Ones can
kiap choose the crabs from the aquarium .
We divided the crabs. Some we BBQ , some we steam.
We have to queue up and fish as many prawns as possible in 30 seconds and put it into the glass containers. The prawns we caught are ours to do as we please.
Papa managed to catch a jar of prawns. Not an easy feat. The naughty prawns can swim very fast and hard to catch. They can jump very high too.
No wonder there is a Chinese saying " kek toh sang har kum thiew". which translated to " angry till jumping like live prawns". meaning ones feeling livid. Just like Mamarazzi when she saw I mess up the house after she clean up.
Jeng Jeng! fresh and juice steamed prawns .
Dessert. These are not provided by the restaurant. Our friend's ex-neighbour got them from her "dusun"(orchard).
The restaurant have fruits and jelly too for dessert. I ate loads of jelly and watermelon.
Forced by Mamarazzi to pose for this photo before we call it a night. I enjoyed the buffet very much. Didn't eat much but it was fun running up and down taking food and drinks for everyone.
I also enjoyed watching people catch crabs and prawns. I heard that if certain table have certain number of people, they are entitle to catching a live fish.
For mamarazzi, this buffet is worth it. Large variety of food and drinks. Service was very good. They kept refilling the soup whenever it's low. Soup base wise..taste was average. Nevertheless, we would certainly come again if have kaki/gang to eat together. Buffet steamboat is best eaten with many kaki
