Pudu, KL – Steamboat @ Sze Chuan Village

The shuttlebugs led by Elaine wanted to go to Pudu to buy lenses for their Canon DSLR at Plaza Pudu after work. Parking at this place is really a challenge even at night after office hour, be prepared to walk :(. We then proceeded to Sze Chuan Village Restaurant for ‘ma la hou guo’ which is sze chuan style steamboat. The soup pot is have 2 area, the inner pot is the ma la soup which are herbal chilies soup while the outer pot are herbal chicken soup.

I have eaten at their old branch in Sunwaymas various times but they have now located it to Bandar Sunway. You order what you like to eat to go with your steamboat, you will be given a form with a long list of items available and you just tick away.

We sure did ordered a tonnes of stuff, beef tripes, quail eggs, sliced lamb & pork, pork stomach, tofu, vege, porkballs, etc. In total we ordered 20 meats, 6 vegetables, 6 tofu, 2 noodles, 1 egg related plates ranging from RM4 to RM8 per plate. There’s an additional charge for soup at RM25.00 but you get some chicken in it and bottomless soup refills.

The sauces here to dip your steamboat food is quite unique, there are four types, one is a peanut sauce, a sesame sauce, chili paste and fermented beancurds (foo yee). You are supposed to mix the flavours according to your taste ;).

The soup itself is tasty and adding in all the goodies, for sure it will be good, after all you are getting premium soup ;). There are chicken meat and herbs in the whitish soup. The ma la soup is basically dried chili in oil plus herbal chicken soup cooked together. Elaine complained the ma la not spicy enough but her standard is different la :P.

Most of the food are fresh and nice, it is especially fun cooking the sliced meat as they cook very fast and you will need to cook them in your ladder in the soup for just 10 secs or so.

The way chinese tea served here are different, instead of pouring from the pot to the glass and add your own ice if you fancy, they have a beer jug with ice and the waitress will help you pre-mix them before serving, so service is quite efficient here ;).

In total we spent about RM280 for 10 persons, cost more than the average steamboat but once in a bluemoon eating here is ok for me ;).
