Most steamboat restaurants use shared steamboat pots but Silver Pot in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur offers individual ones.

The individual pots are great for those who are concerned about sharing food and utensils.

Owner Harris Zainal said he is very particular about hygiene and the individual pot also offers diners their own choice of soups.

There are three type of soups to choose from – herbal chicken, tom yam and vegetarian.

There is a wide array of fresh vegetables and seafood to sample as well. Apart from the raw seafood, frozen processed seafood is also available.

Harris is stringent about the quality of food served and he makes sure the seafood and vegetables are fresh.

Every morning, he goes to the TTDI market to handpick the catch of the day.

“I will remove the yellow and brown parts of the vegetables,” he said.

He added that customers’ satisfaction was his top priority.

For RM22.90, diners can enjoy a buffet steamboat selection for dinner which includes a grilled selection of chicken wings, asam pedas ikan pari and prawn satay.

While the steamboat experience is nothing to shout about, I give Silver Pot brownie points for its grilled items.

According to Harris, the chicken wings are marinated overnight using his mother’s secret recipe.

The prawn satay, which is covered in mayonnaise with chilli mixture and then grilled, is a must-try.

The ikan pari in the Asam Pedas Ikan Pari is cut up in small cubes, making it easy to eat.

Interestingly, diners can enjoy their steamboat or grilled items with rice, fried rice or noodles.

There are four types of noodles available – wantan mee, vegetable noodles, egg noodles and yang chun noodles.

For meat lovers, the steamboat restaurant also offers slices of mutton, beef and chicken.

Of course, there are also delicious sauces as a steamboat dinner will not be complete without them.

Diners can also opt for the a la carte menu.

Lunch is available at Silver Pot at RM19.90 as they do not serve the grilled selection during lunch.

During Ramadan, the restaurant offers a buka puasa buffet priced at RM27.90 for adults and RM15.90 for children.
