Lin Yuan

Our first eating expedition in Cheras since heaven-knows-when.

Pumpkin porridge steamboat is Lin Yuan's specialty _ a unique gastronomic pleasure.

To immerse in the sweet, creamy broth: quail eggs, pork tendon balls & fish paste dumplings, combined with a couple of raw chicken eggs cracked inside.

A little spicy sambal & house-made soy sauce ensure a powerful kick.

Toss in some noodles for the final step to satisfy the tummy.

  2. Wah. Devil took one look at this and said, "You went to a kopitiam?"

    Then we noticed it's steamboat restaurant. Hmm, pumpkin porridge. Sounds yummy but like Ulric asked: Good or NOT?

  3. ulric: it's good, though it'll be tastier if you add more ingredients (various seafood & meat). prices are fair too; the bill here should cost less than one bowl of ramen per person! :D
    kenny: ohh, i think most folks who like the taste of pumpkin will enjoy this steamboat/porridge. it does make me wish that restaurants would be more inventive with steamboat flavors. how about wasabi steamboat, or maybe even an entire broth that's composed purely of EGG! yums! :D

  7. How interesting! These neo-steamboat places are a whole new genre to me. I recently went to somewhere in Seri Petaling where they also made steamboat porridge but with crab roe and the shells, yummo!

  8. Hungry female: ooh, I live in Sri petaling, and I think I know which outlet u're referring to, but I've never managed to visit it. Crab roe steamboat sounds mind-blowing (and less arduous to eat than regular crab!) =)

  9. Wasabi steamboat actually sounds intriguing if they don't overdo it. Hmm.
