After spending an educational day with the children at Resorts World Genting and getting amazed by Superstars of Magic 4, what better way was there to fill up our tummies by having a meal of seafood hotpot at Resort Seafood Restaurant.
The restaurant is quite newly renovated, it is very spacious and tanks of fishes, as well as Canadian geoduck, Australian snow crab and Boston lobster in aquariums greet you at the entrance like any seafood restaurants. Inside, it is cosy and warm and overlooks the beautiful view of the mountains, with sections that can be used for private corporate functions.
On every table is this hotpot, shaped in Ying and Yang, we had the package for 8 for our table with herbal soup. We could choose our soup base as well, from Resort Fish Head Soup, Herbal Chicken Soup, Chicken Soup, Tom Yam Soup or Spicy Soup.
We could choose from more than 20 types of sauces prepared fresh daily. This is so cool as we could mix and match to our own favourite taste.
Choosing the sauces was the first thing to do before the meal was served.
Some of the raw dishes that were part of our package before they were cooked in the hot pot included:
This was my first time eating Ostrich meat, and it actually tasted more towards deer or lamb meat. The prawns were super fresh and sweet in itself. If you have children, they might not go for most of the dishes, but the noodles, so thankfully they had noodles too, and I made my own dry noodles by added the shallot and sesame oil from the sauce counter.
Steamboat or Hotpot is really a great bonding time of cooking and eating together. We love all the fishballs as well as I believe they were all freshly made in house by Chef Lai Kok Yeow and his team. I love to watch the steam that evaporated from the pot and the aroma of the food being cooked right in the centre of the table. All the ingredients used were of high quality, freshly kitchen prepared, straight from the market or aquarium while specialty ingredients were air-flown. You can be assured of a hearty great meal here with your family.
