Seafood Porridge Steamboat

Just came back from dinner together with my dear colleagues. Some of my colleagues couldn't made it cos of other commitments. We had seafood porridge steamboat in Tianjin seafood porridge steamboat restaurant in Ayer Itam. We ordered the Family Set (cater for 7 ~ 8 people) at the price of RM 138+. There are 8 of us altogether. So, it's just nice. Thanks to the organiser, who is also my buddy ;) We really enjoyed the dinner and had a good time chit chatting.

The first time I get to know about porridge steamboat is from a posting I read from my friend's blog few days ago. Hahhaa..I didn't expect so fast I can taste it already :) In fact, I never know the availability of this porridge steamboat in Penang till a couple of hours ago :) All the credits to my buddy cum colleague who organised this :) For those who have never heard of porridge steamboat, the concept is the same as the other steamboat except they use watery porridge as base instead of the usual tomyam soup or chicken based soup.

Things included in the Family Set include pork, prawn, fish, crabs, chicken, liver, crabstick, fishball, porkball, fish cakes, chinese mushroom, button mushroom, abalone mushroom, century eggs, vegetables, peanuts, noodle etc etc ... (I also can't recall exactly what is available inside the "set", cos too busy eating and chatting).

This is indeed something different from the steamboat that we normally eat :)

The restaurant called FARMLAND STEAMBOAT RESTAURANT, i think it is located in the center of KL.I like the porride espcially after we throw all the ingredients in. The porride tasted distiguishly chinese-sweet!! worth to try for those ppl that never tried b4. =)

izchan said...

rambling do you think you can put the address out next time you tell us about the foods ... :P

it kind of defeats the purpose of introducing us something that nice and denying us the satisfaction of actually digesting it.

not that I am complaining of course.

I am too fat as it is.

food is the enemy.

especialy the good tasting ones.

Chen said...

izchan,
Putting the address up sounds like doing advertisement, hahahah....
btw, if u want the address, I can give u :)
Food is human's good friend... not enemy :P
Remember? Nowadays, to most of us, we live to eat, not eat to live
