Shabu One Steamboat Buffet, Lot 10, Kuala Lumpur

Hehe...overindulgence of food had already started even before the Chinese New Year that commenced on 3rd February 2011!

My darling John, his mum and I were treated by our sons and daughters-in-law to a glorious steamboat buffet at Restaurant Shabu One on January 30th, in celebration of their dad's birthday, a day ahead! A great halal (pork-free) place for all Malaysians to eat healthy food, the steamboat-way, where one can eat-all-you-can within the 2-hour dining time allowed. Lovely too that maximum dining time was not strictly imposed that day and we got to spend great bonding times with our family members...eating, yakking and jollying, almost an hour longer!

It was a first-time for John and I. And, we were indeed impressed by the place and food! Stylish and modern, the place was bright, cool and clean! Comfy too with tables well-spaced and not crammed at all like some other restaurants. Moreover, its steamboat concept is a modern one, using hot pots over the induction cookers to cook - really neat, clean and fuss-free.

And, beckoning its customers with a lavish spread of numerous kind of fresh food for the steamboat - truly wide, varied and properly displayed on the serving counters. Reminded me of walking leisurely in a supermarket, picking fresh produce! It boasts of more than 100 varieties of fresh seafood and signature dishes!

There are four types of soup base to choose from, namely Tom Yam Soup, Hot & Spicy Soup, Chicken Soup and Chinese Parsley with Century Egg Soup.

Sauces were aplenty and you can even concoct your own fancy sauces!
