VV Hai Li Lao BBQ Steamboat 威威海里捞烧烤自助火锅城

 Last week Mamarazzi was busy baking. Her mooncake presentation had improved much and she baked a batch of red bean paste mooncakes for me and my girlfriend. Well, at least that was what I thought she baked la.  mana tau she also baked lotus paste with yolk mooncakes ..said for Papa to eat but actually to bring back for Ah Kong and Ah Mah.

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.



Price quite cheap looks reasonable. Our friend treat us for this makan session. Thank you very muchie ...


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.



Mamarazzi was surprised by the drink section. Wah they also provided teapot for tea lover like Mamarazzi to make tea.

For me, of course I choose those fruit juice.






Initially we didn't know how to use the multi-tier pot provided. Went and try to BBQ the chicken wings on the pot. The hot plate was not hot enough to BBQ the chicken wings.


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 . 

The man at the kitchen will clean the crabs for you.  The crabs can either be BBQ(they will help you to BBQ it) or you can steam it .

We divided the crabs. Some we BBQ , some we steam.

They also have this catching live prawns game. Each table is given a card. And when it is time, they will call out. Representative from each table can test their skill by catching as many prawns as possible.


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.


Mamarazzi steamed them in the steamer. Aiyak.... they only provide garlic...tarak ginger. if got ginger will taste nicer leh.


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

  21. Sounds like a good place for buffet steamboat. Thanks for sharing. Did you say '30 seconds' for fishing prawns? If so, your papa must be a wonderful prawn fisherman to have caught so many.
