Lolipot Shabu-shabu @ Bay Avenue Queensbay

Had another treat from 2 of my best friends again, so this is a newly opened restaurant in bay avenue, queesbay. They serve steamboat in a rather unique way which they provide each of their customer with their very own pot instead of sharing one together. The ingredients are presented in a conveyor belt, the names will be listed beside as well. However, better ingredients such as beef slices and prawns are not being provided in the conveyor belt, you will have to order from the waiters instead. Chili sauce wasn't provided as well, you will just have to ask which annoyed me a little, they could have been more generous and just leave them on the table for the customers' own preferences.

Customers are free to take any steamboat ingredients they prefere from the conveyor belt, pork intestines are also provided (not halal). :/

They have 3 kinds of soup bases to offer, this is tom yum, the other 2 being the clear soup version and ginger milk.

Ginger milk soup base. So as the name of the restaurant suggested, shabu-shabu, it wouldn't be completed without some perfectly sliced beef right ? Basically you just need to dip the beef slices in the soup and gently move it, they are best while served in medium rare don't you think so ?

Their prawns were rather fresh as you can see, the flesh was pretty chewy and crunchy, adding 1 or 2 to ur soup could make your soup sweeter, especially in tom yum =)

Some of the more appealing steamboat ingredients provided, fish slices, mussles, abalone slices, scallop balls, several types of mushrooms etc....

Since it's being served in buffet style, the drinks were in free-flow style as well, the drinks available were orange juice, mango juice, peach tea and plain water. The hot dessert was being offered was red bean soup on that night, not sure if they change it everynight or what.

The colourful ice cream with a lot of interesting flavours resting aside caught our attention while we entered the restaurant, there were 6 types of ice cream, and you can have as much as u can too :D

Having air-conditioner around when you are having steamboat is no longer a dream for us, it's getting pretty common nowadays, with just Rm33, you get to experience fine dining and the all the favourite of Asian Chinese- steamboat. Experience the new, fresh and trendy concept of 1 pot per person. Simply cook and choose anything you like without worrying about others. Highly recommended if you are craving for steamboat and you are looking for a cozy place to hang out with your friends or just to have a fine cuisine. Lolipot Shabu-shabu might be your answer.
