Had the opportunity to try out Steamboat cum BBQ at Restoran G-Pot – located at 8, Jalan Kaskas, Taman Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, Cheras . I have a very high standard as far as steamboat is concerned.
There are 4 type of soup base that is the clear soup, tomyam, herbal and pumpkin porridge. My ratings for the soup base is below average. I sampled some of the seafood but it was not that fresh except for the prawns. Did not give a good impression.
But, what i found to be slightly better was the BBQ, which is using a metal plate, quite like the Korean BBQ. Most will use the marjerin as the base for the frying but since this is a steamboat restaurant, they have shallot oil. So, we decided to use this oil instead as our base as it is less fattening. Surprisingly it turns out quite nice when we BBQ the wafer thin pork slice, beef slices and lamb slices. Oh and also the Prawns. This was the saving grace for the night.
I hope the restaurant can ensure much fresher seafood in the future.
Overall my ratings for the BBQ was 2.5 out of 5.
