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 :)
