Calling all hotpot lovers! Lobster & Beef Steamboat is now open at Precinct 10, Tanjung Tokong, Penang!
Lobster & Beef Steamboat is one of the few Chinese restaurants in Precinct 10, Tanjung Tokong, Penang where one can savor a bubbling pot of steamboat with unique soups. Conveniently located around Corner Keng Cafe, the newly opened restaurant specializes in steamboat and lobster dishes.
We wandered in the neighborhood outlet on a weekday. With a modern look, the spacious restaurant has an inviting seating area and private rooms on its ground floor. On the upper floor is a dedicated space for private events.
For those craving crunchy bites before the meal, check out the abundance of items to munch on. Some of the fun bites include fried white bait fish, fried fish skin, and fried prawn dumplings.
To appeal to the varied tastes of soup lovers, a selection of collagen soup, beef soup, and old hen herbal soup is available at RM30 each. Our choice was the collagen soup, creamy smooth and subtly flavored with meat sweetness.
