Last week, we took a ride to Damansara Village at Damansara Jaya for a steamboat dinner. This is a steamboat restaurant opened by an ex-radio deejay, Patrick Teoh. Damansara Village sources it’s seafood from Pulau Ketam so you can be sure that the seafood serve here are fresh.
There are many choices for you to choose from, from the number of ingredients sets they have on their menu. We opted for the ones with fresh crabs and live prawns. You can also order the more pricier sets which comes with fresh fish.
Two types of crabs are served for our set. I do not know much about crabs, but I think both of it are salt-water crabs. It doesn’t contain much meat, but it is sufficient to make the soup tasty.
Our set also comes with live prawns. Yes, you read it correctly, live prawns. It was still “jumping and moving” when we struggled to take the best shots of it.
Clams. One thing that I fear the most here is that, when the clams are exposed to heat, it will open up, releasing the water stucked in the clams. And the worst part of it, is that we ended up drinking it as it mixed with the soup while cooking. I wonder, how do you cook clams while having a steamboat? For now, I chose to ignore it. If you know any good methods, I need your advice. lol…
Process fishballs, meatballs, wanton and pigeon eggs are some of the main ingredients for our steamboat.
Noodles, egg, muscles and ABALONE are also served here too. I didn’t know that these were slices of abalone before VK pointed it out to me.
They have other cooked foods as well; paper wrapped chicken, fried balls as well. So if you like to compliment your steamboat with something else, you may order these as well, just like we did.
