Yugami Steamboat @ Sri Petaling

This hotpot hangout is steaming up Sri Petaling with specialities of fish-based broths that linger pleasurably in the memory.

 We're instant fans of both the clear fish base & the curry fish alternative (RM29.90 for a small pot, RM39.90 for a large one; splitting of flavours is possible), brimming with fresh grouper slices & veggies. Each conveys clean, well-tuned nuances for a reliable foundation - in a pinch, we'd pick the curry, since its creamy richness makes each spoonful more satisfyingly robust.

The selection of meat & more to toss into the pot is predictably solid - special mention for the pork neck & the lamb (RM15.80 each), sterling specimens of succulence. You'll also find everything from house-made squid balls that supply a textured chew (RM7.80 for four) to commercially produced lobster balls (RM6.80, a budget-friendly possibility), juicy Taiwanese sausages (RM6.80) to crispy fried fish skin (RM9.80), yam & pumpkin to watercress (RM5.80 each), century eggs (RM3) to seaweed (RM4.30); the menu goes on & on - prawns, jellyfish, la-la, abalone, crab sticks, tonnes of tofu & all manner of mushrooms.

 With good components comes good results - a meal here is an enjoyable experience of trying out a variety of tasty ingredients that work well for soup-slurping & stomach-stuffing. Don't skip the excellent sauces - Yugami's attention to detail ensures that everything on the table should be lapped up.

 The restaurant also serves recipes like salted egg yolk sotong (RM19.80), Hong Kong-inspired 'typhoon shelter' garlic prawns (RM31.80) & basic fried rice (RM8.90), but our admiration is solely for the steamboat. Many thanks to Yugami for hosting us.

  1. It's been a while since I've had steamboat. This spot looks like it uses very fresh ingredients.

  3. Count me in! I love steamboat. Clear soup for me, please. Curry may drown out all the flavours of the fresh ingredients. A time and place for everything!

  7. Nowadays steamboat restaurants serve not only steamboat but more food varieties to attract customers, although I'm an avid fan of steamboat but SRi Petaling is too far for me :(

  8. I assume RM29.90 or RM39.90 is just for the broth...with no ingredients in it?

    1. Contact.ewew: ooo, the initial serving of the broth actually does contain fish and veggies in it ... and the soup itself is refillable :)

    1. Pureglutton: i've never had curry fish steamboat before, and i wasn't sure whether it was something unique to this restaurant or not, but ya, we really enjoyed our meal here (even though it was a hot, humid evening, heh, unlike today) :)
