Sea Fresh Hot Pot 蒸味鲜 Jalan Macalister

Eating healthy is always good but how do we ensure what we eat are healthy? Well, the simple way is to eat unprocessed food, without sugar, without flavoring, without salt, without MSD…etc. As long as the food is natural then it is healthy for our body. With that said, the best option is to eat something that freshly steamed. We ate in Steamed Seafood Hot Pot 蒸味鲜 at Golden Triangle before and since then we fall in love with simple cooking “Steamed”.

The restaurant located at Jalan Macalister offering big space for dining within two floor, each table are fill with the special steamed cook. It is very simple but super efficient, it took only a few minute to cook meat, seafood and vegetable.
