Xuan Xin Steamboat - A Reasonable, Value-For-Money Choice
This is my 2nd visit to Xuan Xin Steamboat at Tanjong Tokong. Was surprised to see that many patrons as it was a weekday. All the spaces in its already very limited car park were taken up as early as 7pm. So I had to park in front of Teppanyaki Restaurant as the nearby food court did not allow non-patrons to park.
Unlike other steamboat outlets, the ventilation here is pretty good especially those having an option for you to BBQ. This is because there is a special section called the Teppanyaki section where they will prepare and serve you. You are provided with small clips that are marked with your table numbers, so you just clip them to your plates of food. If you'd experience barbecuing food around the perimeter of your steamboat, then you will understand my feelings. Not only will you experience second degree burns but it is terribly uncomfortable. Why would you pay money to suffer? And it could be a hazard as well as I've heard stories of young boys being temporarily blinded by the oil splashes.
The food variety being offered here is quite reasonable. My favorites are the shrimps of course (they come in medium size and very fresh), fish fillet, calamari and chicken feet. Their other menu includes poultry, seafood (cockles, mussel, ketam bunga), fresh veggies and mushrooms, cooked items (fried chicken, fries, fried rice, fried mee), ice-cream and cordials.
There is a promotion running in conjunction with their 4th anniversary celebration, RM20.10 per person not including service charge (on weekdays only). So what are you waiting for, head over there if you're feeling like having steamboat.
