Bone & Pot

Even before this place was opened, there were a lot of banner along the road in Taman Mayang. Initially we thought it was some chinese 'dit da' center, but after it was opened, we found out that it is a steamboat place.

The place was incredibly packed at night. So, the day when my bro left to SG, my parents wanted to try out this place. They picked me up at LRT station and we reached the restaurant at 6.30pm, and there were only 3 tables occupied. Please come early if you wanna try out, because by 7pm, the restaurant was packed and that day was a Friday night.


The waitress there was very friendly, she introduced their special dishes and assisted us in ordering the food. We ordered fried sotong as my mum wanted to try. The sotong was fresh and it was really crispy and not oily. The only complain was the portion was too small for 3 of us! We wanted more!


There are no set menu. You pick your broth and dishes. We picked beef slices, it came in a rather big portion. My dad was really happy with it and said it was really good (note: my dad is picky with beef).


Oyster mushroom, vege, dumpling. yee mee and pork meat balls. The dumplings were filled to the brim, it has prawn pieces in it, it was very tasty. The pork meat balls as well.


We picked 2 types of soup: Pepper broth (left) and their signature pork bone broth. Honestly speaking, my parents and I prefer the pepper broth as it was really peppery. The pork bone broth was so-so only. The pepper broth was diluted after they added soup in it but didnt add pepper. So make sure that you drink more during the first round.


They have 5 different sauces for you to choose. I personally like the fried garlic. Let me warn you first, the chilli on the bottom right was really spicy, not for the faint-hearted.


Hot boiling soup with lots of ingredients.


The food was enough for the 3 of us (not a big eater) and the bill was RM80. It was a bit expensive for steamboat considering that we do not order any seafood (except the fried sotong). Nevertheless, it is worth a try if you are willing to splurge on good steamboat, their ingredients are fresh and the broths are nice. Will I go back again? Yes I will.
