Fans of steamboat, or “hot pot” would be delighted to know that they can now indulge in this steaming affair at Celestial Court, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur until 30 December 2014.
The “All Steamed Up – Oriental Steamboat” promotion offers 5 unique broths and I really have a hard time deciding which one is the best as they are all so good. But if I have to pick a favourite broth, then it has to be the “Lui Yee Hung” Chinese wine with Cordyceps Herbal Soup. The extra-fragrant wine lifts the broth several notches up the taste level for sure, besides being very good for the lungs and blood circulation.
Another milder broth but with wholesome goodness is the Chicken Ginseng Soup. It’s more subtle, with just the sweetness of the chicken and distinctive aroma of ginseng flavouring the clear broth.
My dining friends love the numbingly spicy Hot Slipper Lobster Soup which is a fusion of slipper lobster based broth and “ma la” sauce. It certainly give a good kick to the tongue.
The Thai Tom Yam Soup is mildly spicy with doses of lime juice for that extra sour twist. However, I feel this is too mild as I prefer my tom yam to be bursting with all the dangerous flavours, the way it should be.
Lastly there’s the Jade Porridge, a thin porridge-based broth with blended spinach in it which is supposed to be good for your bones, eyes and contains anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory anti-oxidants. Perfect for the health conscious.
For this steamboat meal, diners can either opt for the set menus or order a la carte or do both. There are 3 sets: Mushrooms Set @ RM49.90++, Poultry Set @ RM55.50++ and the Seafood Set @ RM68.80++.
The a la carte menu lists a huge variety of items under “seafood”, “meat”, “bean curd”, “mushrooms” and “vegetables” with prices starting from RM8++ per portion.
So head on over to Celestial Court before 30 December 2014 to catch a steaming session there.
