I heard that the owner has his own boat so he able to provide fresh seafood everyday, according to the owner he use deep fried fish as soup base so you won't feel thirsty after eating. Anyhow, we are looking forward for RM30 seafood buffet, this is very interesting as RM30 can merely get you half kg of prawn or a grouper fish maybe.
Steamboat Ingredients

Let see what RM30 buffet is. Let start with something standard, vegetable and fish balls. There is around 7 types of vegetables with corn available while many different type of fish ball which is the normal type of fish ball you can get in market.

Well, since this is Seafood Buffet Steamboat for sure we look forward for the big prawn, crab, squid...etc. Let see what they offer.
Yes, there is fresh kapa (Shell) which we really enjoy eating it, it is very fresh and big.
Fresh Shell

Fresh fish meat which is cut into small pieces, it is fresh so no worry the small pieces of fish meat will become "nothing" after cook, it still in one piece even we cook it for long time.
Fresh Fish

Grouper Fish meat, cut into small pieces which some are whole piece of meat while others are fish head, fish head is my favorite and you will be surprise by how many plate of fish meat we consume. We are crazy....we ate almost 2 full plate of fish meat, you will see one of the plate in later photo.
Fresh Grouper Fish

Big fresh white prawn is here, we are really surprise by the big prawn offer here. Normally in steamboat buffet they gave either tiger prawn or very small prawn but here big prawn served and they refill it frequently. 4 of us easily eat more than 1kg that night, maybe more? em...
Fresh Prawn

Mantis Prawn, this is rather disappointing as the mantis prawn is really really small, maybe now is not the season since Mantis Prawn peak season is between March to May.

There is flower crab as well, they cut one crab into 4 pieces and we can still see the big body part and crawl. Although not all are big but there is jackpot of very big crab, we enjoy eating the crab as it is fresh and delicious.
Fresh Crab

Squid is available as well. That pretty much cover all type of seafood available, worth it? Yes, i would say.
Fresh Squid

We start the engine slow and soft, with just a few pieces of fish meat, squid and mushroom but for just the first few plate.

We have to remind you that the Chili Paste is so good, it taste spicy, sour and sweet. We ask the owner whether they can sell us or not but they refuse, seem like they are keeping the secret recipe only for their customer. Maybe i will return just for the Chili Paste.
Chili Paste

We start to lose control after 3 plate of "soft opening", now we are in full gear. We have a few round of overflow plate like below but since we are tamjiak so only this photo capture, we are too busy eating and none taking photo after that. But what i can tell is we have around 4 more full plate like below. We really enjoy eating steamboat during cold weather and we are there for 4 full hours. Who are we? The 2 crazy couple with 4 big stomach, Jazz, Trista, Laygin and Enqvist.
