"Remember to Remember"

Shabu-Shabu Restaurant @ Bandar Puteri Puchong

My dear friend, Khee...had left for India again. A few days before her departure, we decided to meet up again for her farewell dinner. My girlfriends decided to pay me a visit at my place since it's been quite a long time they ever come to "my territory"! Did some silly camwhoring and girl-talked for a while.... then left for Puchong for our dinner!

AiWei and I was initially contemplating whether to have Shabu-Shabu or head straight to Bumbu Bali. We ended up at the Shabu-Shabu restaurant since Lick insisted that we should give this Japanese steamboat a try.. I've never had any shabu-shabu, so it's kinda new and I wasn't reluctant 'not to try at all'!



Since the last time MeiYen reviewed on this restaurant, and reminded us that there'll be lotsa people, we decided to go there earlier. We managed to choose our places to sit comfortably as there were not many people yet still.... We then saw people swooshing in later while we were eating. Luckily we were here earlier ;P





We optioned for the buffet dinner at RM25 per person. If you can really eat, it's really value for money!! They serve ala carte too, with price as low as RM1 per plate of steamboat dish... but the serving is very small!



This is a Japanese Steamboat restaurant and what's different is that, instead of sharing a pot of broth like we normally do at typical steamboat restaurant, each of us get a pot to cook the dishes ourselves :) Just put in whatever that's available on the conveyor belt and cook! We just put in lotsa vege, pumpkin, tomatoes to make our broth yummier! and.... we had fun doing that!

The dishes served were kinda ordinary... I thought that, what makes it special were only the conveyor belt concept and a pot for yourself. Yet still, I enjoyed it :) We had fun trying each others "soup" See... we still prefer sharing ;P

The sauces served...



With soya sauce, fried shallots, chopped spring onions... what else ya? I still prefer that sauce I had at Bar-B-Q Plaza ;) The chili was good. If it's hotter it'll be better definitely! :)

Let see what we had... yikes! Didn't get to capture everything that I ate.. Was in my pot.. Cooking!

Kimchi!! can be added to the soup base, but I ate it just like that. Delicious!

The sliced pork was tender. Don't cook it for too long ya!

We made an order for fried dumplings too


The baby octopus tasted just wise

The fish noodles ;)

and sausages?? Ok.... thought they would serve Japanese dishes, but it turn out to be dishes of a different origin...


Noodles... looked instant to me.

I love their fishballs! Bouncy!

I really have no idea what's this. Yam? Crispy and sweet... not bad at all!

For dessert, we had slush! From the self-service counter, they serve grape and orange slush. Preferred the grape version although it tasted like Ribena to me!




Hope to see you again real soon Khee!!!


my gals


Before leaving......!


Ok. I was really full. We headed back to my place after that and celebrated a one-day-late mooncake festival! The moon was still as round and bright as ever! Hung up lanterns and pictures taking time! Took lots to fascinate!

Helo! ^^ the orange slush gave a refreshing feeling after a full meal =) serving the food in a conveyor belt is a nice concept if only the pot can be of Chinese steamboat style =D

Been here once, actually runs by my hubby's cousin. I like the conveyor belt concept, but then it makes steamboat less fun. To me, I prefer the traditional style where everybody surrounds the boiling pot. More fun that way. This place makes me feel lonely lor..just like eating steamboat alone.

Big Boys Oven October 9, 2007 at 11:11 AM  

precious pea, I think it will be more fun to use those ancient steamboat which use charcoal!

the small shabu-shabu pots reminds me of little girls playing with masak masak.... sure lots of fun isn't it ? ^_^

ai wei October 9, 2007 at 11:56 AM  

too bad we can't get to sit at the 'family' table. sitting at a line really not much fun e. but it's good that we can play 'masak-masak'. haha

I think my boss came here last week and she says it's good.

MeiyeN October 9, 2007 at 1:25 PM

hi there! good to have you here :) I personally don't really fancy the orange slush served here. preferred the grape version :) yea.. it's a cool concept but... it's japanese style. Think the chinese will not incorporate that. Prefer sharing ^^


precious pea~
Oh really? *nod nod* agree agree :) I prefer eating together, as in... in a closer environment, surrounded with more ppl. The conveyor belt concept is good but perhaps dining on a family table will satisfy me much better ;)


big boys oven~
wow.. charcoal? definitely will taste yummier!


ling239~
Yes! masak-masak. one thing good about having a pot by yourself besides hygienic is that... we can just put in anything and cook!


aiwei~
yea.. that's for ala carte! think they should offer family table for buffet style too!

~Christine~Leng October 10, 2007 at 3:59 PM  

jason~
why don't you give this place a go? tell me what you think then ;)


meiyen~
yes.. thanks for reviewing this place! :)


christy~
do check this place out ya? the dumplings... they're mixed with prawns and meat as well.
The slush can definitely quench our thirst! ;)


new kid on the blog~
it's kinda special too... first time eating them :) Love them. When you're visiting KL.. can consider visiting this place!


kampungboycitygal~
I read your review on Mizi :) they don't have the buffet style :( anyway.. these two shabu2 restaurant are managed by the same owner :)
Buffet... more 'tai' right? ^^

wenching & esiong October 10, 2007 at 9:18 PM  

Ai Wei actually told me that we were in the same place on that day. We were in Mizi on that day and u guys were in Shabu-shabu. Haha! I haven't been to Shabu-shabu but Mizi was quite ok to me. Gonna try this place out soon!

celine October 10, 2007 at 10:58 PM  

We can choose whatever soup base we want, right?

~Christine~Leng October 11, 2007 at 8:56 PM  

wenching&esiong~
yea.. she told me :) you can drop by shabu-shabu next time gal! btw.. I think both are managed by the same owner if i'm not mistaken..


celine~
hi! thx for dropping by!
I'm afraid not :( they only have clear broth. It's up to us on how we wanna cook up different the taste by placing in different ingredients. It's like... masak-masak! can be fun ;)

Precious Pea October 12, 2007 at 8:15 AM  

Christine, can you give me your email ar? Need to contact you.
