Steamboat at Tasty Pot Sunway Mentari

The Chinese people have an affinity for steamboat. It’s comfort food at its best and is one of the most popular choices for Chinese New Year reunion dinners.

It’s been a long time since we had steamboat (since our Chinese New Year reunion dinner!) so when I got a flyer from a colleague about Tasty Pot, it just about piqued my curiosity! So off we went for a feast at Tasty Pot on Sunday.

The selection of food at the buffet counter is enormous. There’s the fresh seafood section (large meaty crabs, flower crabs, prawns, shellfish of all kinds including green mussels, scallops, clams, bamboo clams, etc). The fish ball section has enough items for a feeding frenzy. Then there’s also the vegetables section where you get all types of vegetables and noodles. Tasty Pot has an additional section for BBQ (salmon fish head, fish, prawns, sausages, potatoes and lamb). Finally, there’s a section for the usual fried noodles and fried rice for those who can’t live without their carbs. For RM23.90 per adult and RM11.90 per child it’s great value for money!

The crabs were very meaty, quite unlike those teeny little things we normally get at buffet lines. However, take note that the claws are as hard as rocks. It takes tremendous effort to crack them open! The crabs are very popular at the buffet line so they run out fast. However, the staff does replenish the food, although there’s some waiting time. There’s a selection of 2 soups per table, of which you can choose from a variety of herbal chicken, Thai tomyam, curry soya bean, soya bean and porridge. We selected the herbal chicken and Thai tomyam. We really liked the herbal chicken soup. The soups were quite tasty and sweet especially after cooking all that crabs and prawns! After dinner, there’s the desserts counter where ice-cream and fruits are served.

Tasty Pot is located at No. 9 Jalan PJS8/18 Dataran Mentari, Bandar Sunway, 46150 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Tel : 03-5630 1282.
