Steamboat Ingredients List

We just love to eat steamboat especially charcoal steamboat that has the heat and flavor. Lot of people asking us what the ingredients that you recommend and what can be added into steamboat. My answer is whatever you love to eat and whatever edible can be put into the steamboat, I think I might get slap for giving that stupid answer. Well, I just want to let you know that don’t be bound by what other people think, go for what you want and create something special. Nevertheless I would like to share with you what we eat and how crazy we are on ingredients prepare for steamboat. Since it been sometime we never eat, it time to get myself prepare a list for upcoming steamboat.

Just remember not to over buy, we tend to buy too much every time end up steamboat on second days. It easily goes wrong at fish ball stall where all type of fish ball look interesting. Let me share with my formula. 1 person normally can take up to 10 different of fish ball each, so just multiply the number of person you have for the steamboat. You might be saying that is less but trust me with all other ingredients such as vegetable, meat, seafood…etc it definitely more than enough.

Let get the list write up.
