Wireless Steamboat @ Stadium Negara Restaurant

Just wondering if anyone of you know this place which is famous for its old clunky wireless steamboat. Ooppss, I mean they use charcoal instead of electric hotpan.
My family especially luv to frequent this place for its steamboat and crabs while my fave has always been their grilled chicken wings and grilled sotong. Seriously, very good stuff! Have not tried Jalan Alor's famous chicken wings so Stadium Negara's chicken wings remain the best I have tasted so far.
Here comes the wireless steamboat! Chuck everything into the pot first. Wee...people use hot charcoals one ah, dun play play.
Waiting...waiting....waiting patiently...


Taadaa...steaming hot stuff, help yourself with the food.

Omg, my fave grilled sotong! I swear that you have got to try this if you luv seafood.

Yar, look so unappetising hor? But never judge the food by its look!

Our must-have everytime we dine here--Crabs in sweet and sour sauce.

Soak the mantous with the delicious sauce...mmm...mmm....*boss, another plate of roti bakar*

But do take note that the food are pretty pricey here. That nite the bill came up to RM800 for 15 of us. @_@"" so expensive!

LOCATION: hmm...I'm so bad in direction. All I know is that this place is located @ Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, near Munakata Japanese restaurant which meiyen had reviewed earlier on. 10 mins from the KLCC LRT station. I can ask Char siew bao to revert to you on the direction if you wanna give this place a try.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

MeiyeN said...

O_o rm 800 for steamboat?!!!!!! my god...... that's really expensive! oh by da way, heard from my ex-classmate this place is famous.. wanted to have a gathering here last year but was canceled due to flash floods!

Xiu Long Bao said...

jian: no lar, but gotta admit that the crabs are of XL size. Yummy somemore, so we paid RM300++ for the crabs. that sotong if use charcoal to bakar sure become 'sotong overed bakar' lar.

wmw: haha...ya hor. Duno y sooo expensive. Charcoals are cheaper than electricity wee.

boo_licious: Rm800 for 15. Crabs oledi cost around RM300++, XL size one. Maybe abit overpriced.

jackson: haha...can spend RM800 in MAX ah? then u must be stuffing yourself to the max.The crabs are really good! fat and juicy.

joe:We know the rest owner very well oledi la. My aunt even brought her japanese clients there. Oishi leh. Expensive because of the big fat crabs.

meiyen:Good place for gathering! Just take note of the expensive items. That place is abit muddy and secluded tho.

Eh they are on Jalan Yap Kwan Seng now? Used to be in Stadium Negara woh, been there once yeeaaaaars back.

Xiu Long Bao said...

tankiasu:
Really? no wonder they are named as stadium negara la.

Kenny Mah said...

That is really expensive... but the food looks darn good lar... Suddenly have a craving for crabs suddenly... but not golden crabs... LOL

Thanks for the review!

sc said...

the steamboat is so very old school! looked so 'used' already..hehe..but woah, aint RM800 a bit steep for 15 pax?

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

your crabs must b really made out of gold lor..haha

Tummythoz said...

Tankiasu is right. They were doing super good business when located outside the stadium. When they moved a few years back, I've only been once and found d quality deteriorated. So, never been there again. But since u say so good, I'll try again.

Jian said...

Hmmm XL wan ar? Reminds me of the huge chilli crab I had back in Spore...RM300...lolz
I can eat 15kg crab in Penang ady...a restaurant just put up a banner 1kg crab = RM20 lolz...

But no matter what.....small crab kenot fight wif big crab. The gigantic crab claws are the best part to eat...one bite and ur mouth is filled with crabmeat! *droolzzz*

Char Siew Bao said...

It was my first time there and i absolutely love the golden goldilocks crabs! Best part if dipping ur man tou into the sweet and sour gravy! Yuuummmmmyyyyy...

But i have heard from a lot of ppl that the quality has deteriorated, if that is the case, can't imagine when it was d old days... wuz it really dat gud?

teckiee said...

Ohhh that place! Ok I know where already. On the right hand side after I pass the Australian embassy right? I always see tons of people there but have not tried. And RM800 is ... burns my whole pants! not only the pocket.

ps.. i was thinking tech when you said wireless...HAHAHA

Xiu Long Bao said...

sc:yalor, dat hot pot is like a antique oledi. Must be older than me...haha! I tot the food are abit pricey too but my family just luv to frequent this place @_@ nvrmind since im not the one footing the bill ;p

joe: LoL...but the crabs are really yummy lar, drooled when i look at that pix.

tummythoz:but I only luv their crabs, grilled chicken wings and sotong. Other than that are so-so only for that kind of pricing.

jian:Rm20 very cheap leh! Faster go eat ;p I had that Singaporean Sri Lankan crabs too! Sooo big !

csb:Lucky u! Managed to tag along this time round...LoL

teckiee:hmm...I guess so..need to check with csb cus i always dream in the car, nvr take the effort to locate the plces...keke ;p Rm800 is for 15 pax lar, and only if u order those expensive stuffs. Definitely affordable one. Yar, that 'wireless' thingy is to mislead u all one...haha...

jason said...

*eyes popping out*
RM800 ar??? *fainted*
But I think it's hard to find such classic steamboat restaurant anymore

Xiu Long Bao said...

jason: haha...dun pengsan first! The so called 'golden' crabs are worth the price. Veli veli nice! But do try their chicken wings and grilled sotong, affordable and yummy i assure u!

Mark said...

RM50++ per person, okay larr.... Giant crab... sotong sommore... Oh my!

Jian said...

Oh Penang has this steamboat restaurant (Goh Huat Seng) which is still serving classic style steamboat...Eating experience using those charcoal heated steamboats were not good. Everytime leave the restaurant with charcoal smell on body and hard to control the heat. And ashes flying everywhere : P

Xiu Long Bao said...

jian: haha...true oso. But my parents say charcoal-ed food taste better wor.

Jian said...

Boil soup using charcoal is the best combo. That applies to CKT, tong sui, etc : )
