Of all the steamboat restaurants in the Klang Valley, Citarasa Seafood Market Steamboat is probably the only one which adopts the market concept whereby customers are given the choice to choose their ingredients before the ingredients are sent to their respective tables. Yes, the ingredients itself and not the ones you choose on printed menus. How cool is that?

NSK - Citarasa Seafood Market Steamboat

There was already a line when we arrived at the restaurant but we were quickly given a table as there were only the four of us. We took our table cards and went straight to the center where all the fresh ingredients are. We took a short tour around before we start to shop for our ingredients.

Almost all the ingredients are nicely packed with sling wraps and neatly arranged on the racks. There have the usual ingredients like fishballs, meatballs, vegetables, prawns and etc. and also premium ingredients like grouper fish of different species; imported fresh lobsters and crabs.

The price are displayed on the item itself allowing customers to do a quick calculation on how much they wish to spent their meals on. Ingredients are replenished constantly and this allows customers get all the choices they want. This, I think is a very good concept as customers who come later are also given the chance to enjoy clean and fresh ingredients unlike those at buffet steamboat restaurants.


Once we have chosen our ingredients, we move to the check out counter. At the checkout counter, all ingredients scanned and thereafter sent to our table.

Citarasa also cooks some of your ingredients and we opted to have our grouper fish steamed with soya sauce.

Overall, we had a very satisfying meal and our bill comes up to about RM160++ for the four of us. The price is almost equivalent to the price of a steamboat buffet in Kepong but if I were to choose, I would definitely choose Citarasa. The reason is simple, their ingredients are better and fresh.

Cameleon Beancurd Restaurant (Vegetarian) at Jalan Putra

Posted by Apple Foodees On June - 30 - 2014ADD COMMENTS

I don’t go to vegetarian restaurants a lot as I don’t like mock meats and fishes. Since there are no other restaurants around Jalan Putra (there is an ongoing construction at The Mall), we decided to take our lunch at Cameleon Beancurd Restaurant (Vegetarian). They serve the usual stuffs just like any other Chinese restaurants around but all meats and fishes are made of beancurds.

Beancurd Noodles

I ordered their Beancurd Noodles which is basically noddles with mock “luncheon” meat and mince meat with broccoli and cucumber. This dish looks simple but I am sure, a lot of effort is put in into making those mock meats. It comes in a set with a drink of either a glass of watermelon juice or honey lime juice – if I remember it correctly. For your information, if your total bill is more than RM30 and if you have a RHB credit card, you will be entitled to a 10% off your total bill.

Should you feel that you would rather order their juicy and tender steaks from the ala carte menu, you may also do so as their buffet will run concurrently with their ala carte menu. Heads up, their buffet spread will only be offered at their Jalan Yap Kwan Seng branch starting from the 2nd week of Ramadhan month, that is from 8th July 2014 to 27th July 2014.
