I think I have caught the steamboat bug. I have been craving for steamboat for the past two months and after trying to recall how many times of steamboat I had so far...it was a shocking total of 8 times which included two homemade version. In fact I just came back from one very yummy and satisfying steamboat dinner which I will going to post soon. Please bear with me as the next few posts will be featuring on steamboat. I think just let me release the bug in my blog and who knows? I might be cured through spreading the bugs to you guys. Hehehe.
Apart from the combo / noodle set, you can order extra serving of your favourite steamboat ingredients at very reasonable price.
Chilli paste and fried shallots are served unlimited here. If you want something spicy, go for the blended green chilis.
Another thing special about this place is that everyone gets their individual pot of soup. So, if you are fussy person who doesn't like people wash their chopstick in the soup, this would be an ideal place. For the soup based, you can either have clear soup or Tom Yum Soup. While WMW and I opt for clear soup, Teckiee tried the Tom Yum which I find it too spicy for me. I notice Teckiee having a hard time finishing her order due to the spiciness of the soup. I also saw that there is a curry chicken noodle set in the menu, so i guess with that, you will get curry-based soup.
WMW had the Sliced Lamb Noodle set priced at only RM9.80. It came with vermicelli and yellow noodles and of course the thinly sliced lamb, some fried beancurd sheets, chicken balls and veggies. Like WMW said, it's like ordering a bowl of noodle soup, but only differece is that you have to cook it yourself.
Since I was craving for steamboat so badly, I ordered the Sliced Lamb Combo Set (RM21.90) which came with a plate of the usual steamboat ingredients such as fish paste, fish ball, quail egg, stuffed beancurd, fried foochuk, fish, prawns, variety of greens and noodles. Pretty good as all their ingredients were very fresh. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
My set also came with generous portion of thinly sliced lamb. Very fresh and it didn't have any strong smell at all.
WMW ordered the Veggie Balls (6 pieces for RM3.80) which is one of my favourite too.
So the next time if you are clueless of what to eat while you are at Ikano, do give this place a try.
