fish head steamboat for a celebration of 3 working years

Last Friday, we went all the way to the mainland for a dinner together with the lunchmates. It took us almost 2 hrs before we could reach the place, due to the heavy traffic on Penang Bridge.

We enjoyed our steamboat there. It was really a suitable place with good air ventilation for steamboat. It was not like other bbq steamboat restaurants that I have been to before this, and I always ended up smelling horrible when reached home. The soup for the steamboat was boiled with fish head and yam, and this is the signature soup for the restaurant. It was really good!!!!!!! We all enjoyed drinking the soup too...

We ordered 2 sets, which cost RM 158 each. Later on we added quail eggs and mantis shrimps, and the total bill came to RM 365.50 for 13 of us.
4 most "laku" dishes of the night

Other dishes which came with the package we ordered
