steamboat at Xuan Xin

Have been craving for steamboat for the past whole month and to my surprise the last time i had steamboat was during the Chinese New Year. So, can't really blame that i have such a crave. And so after looking through the available steamboat restaurants in Penang, my pals and i have finally decided on Xuan Xin, Tanjung Tokong, Penang.
This place offers a wide variety of choices for steamboat in buffet style. They also have bbq whereby you don't need to do it by yourself as there will be a bbq chef waiting in his "cubicle" and all you have to do is make the pick. They also have a variety of soups from basic chicken soup to tomyam to papaya (November's special) to broth and many more.
Besides that, they also cooked meals such as fried rice, fried noodles, fried chicken, fried mantou, wedges. As for other side dishes, they have rojak, dessert and ice cream.

starter dish

varieties of fishballs

vegetables-a must for "steamboaters"

our soup selection for the evening-clear chicken and tomyam

types of sauce-must try the sambal-like sauce on the left

prawns-fresh according to my friend

our bbq plate consisting of squids,fish,chicken and pork

rojak-ooh, i love this so much!! the sauce is super good!!

all drinks are free flow and you have 3 selections i.e orange, green tea (above right) and blackcurrent (above left)

 isn't it nice to end every meal with everyone's favorite dessert?-the ice cream which comes in 6 flavours!!
Price is RM27.50+ for adults and RM12+ for children age 6-12 years old.
Although a little pricey compared to other buffet style steamboat, i personally like this place better as first, it is air-conditioned and second the ventilation is better so you won't smell a single bbq "fragrant" on your body unlike other places.

Where at?
101, Jalan Tanjung Tokong, 10470
