Fish Soup Base Steamboat @ Kuchai Lama

If you asked me what my favourite food is, the first answer would always be steamboat.
People always like to eat steamboat during raining or cold weather, but I tell you, I can eat steamboat at anytime and any places.
That's because I am a soup lover; I guess this is the practice since my childhood as my mum cooks soup for us of every dinner. *whatacaringmum*

I usually go to the Restaurant Shabu-Shabu at Puchong when it comes for steamboat.
That's the place me and Lik love the most as we can eat all you can at just RM30 plus for 1 person.
However, I will always want to try out new steamboat everywhere in KL.

I know about this newly opened HoChiak Steamboat & BBQ from my brother.
He also the same kind of person who love soup like me.
So I'm kinda believe in him whenever he recommended me a new place with nice soup. *hehe*

No fancy interior decorations, yet a simple and traditional Chinese restaurant look with all wooden furniture.
There are few tables inside the restaurant and also 2 tables are available at outside.

For just 2 person, we ordered a set of seafood platter @ RM 26.90.
It's quite big for 2 person though.

Also, the "yee mee" noodle and egg come with the set as well.

We also ordered 3 side dishes just in case not enough for us. What a big eater!
This is the home-made fish ball @ RM4.00 for 5 pieces.

This is the squid pork meat ball @ RM4.00 as well for 5 pieces in total.

We at first thought the dumpling would be in raw and we can put them in the soup (the menu never mentioned it)
Yet, we were pretty surprised when it came in fried, also the size of each dumpling is very small.
It costs RM7.80 for 6 pieces, and we think this is not that worth it.

This is the best recommended fresh fish soup base from the owner.
They do have other soups like Tom Yam, yet I strongly recommend this fish soup as this is the most highlight from them.
Each soups cost RM8,00.

Each person will serve with their in-house source with the steamboat.
Love the fried garlic so much especially you deep it in the soup!

Looks so #yummylicious, right?!

I really enjoy having their fish soup.
We asked for few times refill, because I can drink one whole bowl by myself! *haha*

The boss is a nice and friendly man, he speaks to every customers who dine in and ask their opinion about their food and dining experiences.
He told us that he has actually spent 2-3 months to get this distinctive and perfect soup base.
Plus, he also pointed out that the soup is free from any artificial flavourings, unlike the others soup that available in the menu.

This is actually my second time to this restaurant, yet I still feel satisfy with their food quality, and services.
Please do try out their lamb BBQ as my brother said this is their best BBQ among the others!

If you are a steamboat lover like me, you probably no harm to try this new place out!
