Eating steamboat is fun over here ~ the ideal way to enjoy a leisurely dinner outdoor on chilly evenings. Mmmm...nicer even when go together with tiger beer... This is the only place where we can eat steamboat outdoor without sweating profusely; In fact we didn't sweat at all, instead we feel very comfortable eating the hot steamboat in the cold environment.
Eating steamboat is a very popular thing over here in Cameron Highland. There are so many steamboat restaurants in Brinchang; There are some as well in Tanah Rata but not as many as compared to Brinchang. There's only one old charcoal steamboat - Highland Restaurant located at the ground floor of Jasmine Hotel, Brinchang; but we didn't try out that :)
We really enjoyed the Herbal Steamboat in Hong Kong Restaurant (located along the main road of Tanah Rata. RM 13 per person for herbal soup steamboat or RM 12 per person for mixed soup steamboat (duo flavoured - tomyam and chicken based soup). Things included in the "package" - beef, pork, prawn, fish, cuttlefish, chicken, squid, crabstick, beancurd, fishcake, fish wantan, fish springroll, fishball, porkball, pork skin, cameron highland mushroom, 8 types of vegetables, egg, noodle & beehoon...
The Herbal Steamboat is nice. We feel so full after eating the servings.. In fact, we can't finish all the servings :P
