Angkiki Steamboat Hot Pot @ Anson Park, Georgetown, Penang.

Despite the roaring steamboat restaurants mushrooming in Penang, one still finds it tough to find a cheap and good steamboat place especially if you wish to cut through the novelties and get straight down to the solid basics. The opening of Angkiki Steamboat is definitely a good news to local foodies. Expect no classy setting nor very cozy ambiance but rather, it is housed within a very simple and no-frills hawker center along Anson Road. Angkiki Steamboat provides unabashed steamboat packages at very affordable prices. Their specialties are their soup bases- Nyonya Assam Pedas and Tom Yum which are carefully designed to suit the locals' palates. Wallet-friendly, ample parking space, worth-trying soup bases, aplenty choices are some of the reasons why this place is worth a look.

Angkiki Hot Pot continues to impress us with their choices of Soup Base- Assam Pedas, is skillfully cooked with remarkable flavors. The assorted herbs and ingredients were fully utilized to accentuate the flavors. The final product is a spicy yet appetizing broth which works perfectly well with any kinds of steamboat ingredients. While their Clear Soup is pretty standard-average, their Tom Yum soup base is worth a mention here. We love the flavors of the soup, it was spicy though veering towards the sweeter side, it comes with a mild-hint of acidic tilt. It may not be too suitable for those who prefer a sour-base Tom Yum but this version of theirs have certainly amazed us. On a side note, diners can request to have the level of spiciness altered and customized to their own liking.
