Town Steamboat Restaurant

There is this new buzz in town; this new steamboat buffet place which was located right in the middle of Macalister Road.
I have been there 3 times since it opened (sorry it took me so long to post this up:)

My first time was the funniest; we have been passing by this place almost every evening and noticed the large crowd there.

Therefore we decided to try it out one fine evening and a quick glance at the notice board misled us to think it was only Rm9.90.
Haha...we missed the 1 before it; it costs Rm19.90 per pax:)

Anyway, it was still worth it; based on the wide variety they have; from raw to cooked and even dim sum and pastries, salads and snacks, and also desserts and fruits.
They have Chinese tea range and cordial drinks too!!
This is the first ever steamboat buffet I have seen which serve Dim Sum as well:)

They have the inner section and the outer section; can accommodate up to 20+ tables.

We opted for the dual soup; clear and spicy tomyam soup with a divider in the intersection.

The best part about steamboat is you cook all of your food at the same time and voila, you can eat them once it's bubbly and steaming!:)

Only at Rm19.90 per pax; it is by far the most enjoyable steamboat experience in Penang town:)

  10. Hi ling239, those fish are already cooked; not to be dipped into the pot but rather, grilled on the aluminium foil:D

    yammylicious, yeah, they serve dim sum!!:)

    flanboyant, sure sure, can I request for the pineapple to be FED-EX?:p

    cynthia, agree, really loads of stuffs!:)

    christine, yeah, dim sum is the unique thing to be served for a steamboat buffet!

    little corner, yeah, lots of variety!:D

    new kid, similar but if you want my opinion, this is better now:) I prefer this to Nagore, for the variety and the price worth and also the items are more fresh:D

    meiyen, they are really fresh!!:)

    bigfish, yeah,on normal rate, I'd think it's pricey but the variety, it's WORTH it!:D
