2 of my favourite place for steamboat are Damansara Village steamboat in Kayu Ara and Ho Ho steamboat in Jalan Segambut (near Jalan Ipoh). Both of these places doesn’t put too much low quality processed food in their set(ie processed meat, fish ball etc). Damansara Village pride itself with non-MSG soup base, one person set is RM18.80, slighly higher priced than others which i find is well worth it.


Favourite live tiger prawns, RM23 for 300g etc.


Set for 2 pax, RM37.60


300g live prawn underneath. We could hear the prawn moving, but it “knock out” after few minutes. It is better to request them to bring the live prawns later so that it will still be alive when putting into the soup. The prawn are sweet tasting and firm.


Clear non-MSG soup in Damansara Village


Next is Ho Ho steamboat in Jalan Ipoh, above is 2 person’s set for RM33


Yummy roe crab which is RM65/kg (menu pricing is RM70/kg but they say the price may be lower depending on the supplier’s price). It doesn’t look orangy like what is in the menu, but i still find it very delicious. The plate above is RM45.50 for 2 roe crab


View from the other side, the roe is mostly yellowish in color and not bright orange color as seen in other blogs


RM86 in Ho Ho for 2 pax, not bad for a very satisfying meal. Considering to eat the crab on a monthly basis 🙂 its roe is really good, almost like eating uni (sea urchin) in Japanese sushi restaurant, but much cheaper, and the meat are fresh and not soft.

Huge complex housing this steamboat restaurant, full of customers.


Many soup base available, only chicken soup is free, wonder whether the fish head soup base (RM28) will be good.


cheapest set available, ~RM68, recommended for 2 pax


powered solely by charcoal, takes longer time to boil the soup.


the chicken soup base not flavorful enough


fresh prawns included in the set


crabs are small but quite good


Overall, i find it is quite expensive steamboat place as they don’t have those RM15-20 per pax sets, still prefer Damansara Village steamboat.

Movenpeak Steamboat in Ipoh Parade


Set for single person


Seafood Set, RM19.80, too big for a person portion, can be shared, comes with crab, balitong, mussels, squid, crabstick etc

Their soup is without any MSG.


newspaper clipping dated back to 2006, damansara village steamboat is a joint venture between 4 friends, monthly rent of the land is RM10,000, whereas RM400,000 is used to renovate and set up this steamboat business(RM100,000 per person)


flower crab, very fresh


tiger prawn, still moving, fresh from the tank


500g of giant clam

bamboo clam

bamboo clam, RM12


We had herbal soup base which is quite strong in herbal and wine taste, overpowering the fresh seafood taste, prefer chicken soup base.
