The other day, some blogger friends suggested a steamboat gathering in Cheras area, and it was a long time since I last had steamboat food. One thing led to another and suddenly I found myself sitting in this new found restaurant below some apartments in Taman Cheras called AS Wang Steamboat Restaurant. The ambience wasn't really top notch, but the crowd that was there gave me an assurance that the food was going to be good!

Off Jalan Kuari,
43200 Kuala Lumpur
Eight of us fitted into one table, while ordering steamboat ingredients for 7. Looking back, we should have ordered food for 6 or 5m because the servings were so big! The restaurant waiter just piled up the steamboat ingredients, and it looked like a small mountain. Check out below for the raw food that we were going to put in.

We were all hungry souls that time as it was already close to 8pm when we reached the restaurant. Luckily they provided some crunchy wanton as appetizers for us while we were waiting for the food to cook.

The restaurant provided us with 2 choice of soups, tomyam and herbal soup. I actually preferred the tomyam soup as it gave a spicy, tomyam'ish taste to the food that was thrown in. The food was good, and a serving of 7 was definately too much for 8people. I ate until I had to loosen my belt at the end of the meal! Price was affordable at RM 124 for 8 persons, which came out to be only RM 15.50 per person.
On a side note, since we were a bunch of bloggers, lots of cameras was brought out. Snap snap, it was a happy night with lots of talk about who, what, why, when, and how are things going on in the blogosphere. Check some pictures of the attendees for the night. Friends make the world go round!
