The key to good steamboat
PENANG folk are famous for recognising a good deal when they see one – especially when it comes to matters of the stomach.
And wallet-conscious gourmands would surely agree that they have found the perfect place in Golden BBQ Steamboat Restaurant.
The steamboat set comes with a pot for the soup and a circular grill.
Some steamboat pots come in two halves so that you can choose to dip your sticks into either the clear soup, or the super-spicy Tom Yam soup for which Golden BBQ Steamboat has become famous for.
Diners are truly spoilt for choice, with a plethora of barbecue and steamboat food items to choose from. One will find at least four or five different varieties of marinated beef, fish and chicken; and a grand selection of assorted fruits de la mer. On certain “lucky” days, value for money pickings also include mantis prawns, better known in the Hokkien as heh-kor. A free flow of different types of drinks are also available.
There are also no artificial food enhancers that go into the making of the soups. Yeong reveals without hesitation that, “It’s no secret recipe, we just use lots of fresh ingredients, and put many different types of vegetables into making the stock, with lots of corn included.” Indeed, one can taste the unadulterated flavours that are satisfyingly delicious in their own right.
