Well, I miss my food post. I shall start blogging about one now. :-)
Annie ajak us to try this wintermelon steamboat at Puchong. Whenever it comes to steamboat, I am always a "Yes" person. Furthermore, this is a novelty thing that need to be tried. We arrived Low Maji at 7.30pm and it was full house. We left our names with the person in charge and sat aside to wait for our turn. It was a loooooong wait. We were seated after 45 minutes of waiting.
After we were seated, we quickly placed order: 2 x 2 pax wintermelon steamboat set. The wintermelon took 15 minutes to arrive, while Annie's one waited another 15 minutes for hers. The waiting time is so long, in my opinion.
There are 2 layers of this steamboat: Outer layer is for vegetables and fu chuk while inner layer (i.e inside the wintermelon) is for meat. Once the soup is decreasing inside the wintermelon, we have to scoop the soup from outer layer to the inner layer. Same process continues throughout the whole dining time.
At first the soup was a bit bland, but after cooking the ingredients, it became thick and flavourful. The ingredients were fresh. Oh, they have this special Low Maji sauce prepared at the table and I love the sauce!
As a summary, the steamboat was nothing to shout about except for the wintermelon thingy. It was not bad, but it was not great until I have to wait one hour plus for it. I will visit this shop again but during the non-peak hours. Good steamboat for raining days.
