Hong La Jiao 红辣椒火锅 is one of the very famous steamboat restaurant in Penang especially it signature Dry Steamboat. Restaurant operation hour is a little bit odd as they only start business from 6pm and close on 5am. Hong La Jiao offer rather authentic Sze Chuan type mala (spicy) steamboat but I am not very sure whether Dry Steamboat is origin from Sze Chuan or not. Hehe! Let it be, as long as it taste good.
Assorted dipping sauce available and RM1 charge per head, that is how it work in China as well where dipping sauce are not provided FREE. Well, personally RM1 for all this unlimited condiments is CHEAP! You can mix and match whatever you want as long as no wastage.
Huge variety of steamboat ingredients available. More than 100 ingredients available from the A4 size menu! We are so greedy to order so many ingredients. Price is reasonable, vegetable around RM2 - RM5, Meat around RM4 - RM8.
Here is our dry steamboat! Teng Teng! The long awaited dry steamboat with mud crab. RM88 for 2 mud crab in the dry steamboat while the white color soup is radish duck soup RM58. Refillable soup! So is the dry steamboat really good? YES, it is really really good. Crab are extremely fresh and fully absorb chili fragrance, we thought the spicy taste will overpower the crab sweetness but we are wrong, the crab still taste sweet and delicious. So how to eat dry steamboat? Well, they recommend us to finish all crab then they will pour water and we start eat soup steamboat as usual. The soup really taste good, spicy but flavorful.
