Fancy a no-brainer make-your-own-dinner but without the hassle of shopping, cleaning, chopping and preparation that cooking at home entails? Well how about hot pot or steamboat? It’s the easiest way to feed the family that I know of, with each picking and choosing what he or she likes best.
At Treasure Pot, all the preparation is done for you. You sit; you order your choice of soup or two if you prefer (choose from Tom Yum, Salmon Fish Head, Special Bone Pot, Imperial Pork Stomach, Seafood Soup, Spicy Hotpot, Pork with preserved cabbage); you go to the food display; you select everything you wish to eat; you pile it on your plate and you start cooking.
Ah and the dipping sauce, what will you choose? Well you have a dizzying choice of 20 (too many to list) to choose from: be a purist and choose one or play master chef and mix them. If you’re not happy with the result, go back again and mix some more. And after you’ve had your fill and refills of the different meats, fish, prawns, vegetables, go back and choose your type of noodle (from six options) to finish the now robust broth. And wash all this down with complimentary orange juice.
If a little sweet tooth is hankering for attention, then head for the ice cream. It’s all included in the price of RM30+ for adults, seniors RM25, children under 12 RM15+ and toddlers and those below five eat for free. Now if that isn’t the best deal in town! And all in air-conditioned comfort too.
