Glass…

This place is new…

…located round the corner from my house and when we came back from fetching my girl home from her school in the jungle last Wednesday, that evening, we went to check it out…

It opened over two weeks ago and I was planning to come over already that Wednesday as my girl was home too then but we were invited to a birthday celebration so all plans had to be put on hold until last week.

My attention was drawn to the cookware used for the steamboat and for barbecuing the meat. It was made of glass…

…very thick, most probably some special tempered glass that is able to withstand the heat.

It was raining all afternoon and soon after we got there, it poured cats and dogs and since it was not hot that night, we opted to sit in the non-air-conditioned section. They do have one side that is air-conditioned…

…and I like how they have those individual exhaust hood over each table so the place would not be filled with smoke and one would not leave the place smelling like what one has been cooking.

The prices are very reasonable…

…cheaper than here…or here and obviously they do believe in the age-old maxim that “it’s the early bird that catches the worm”. You can click the link to their Facebook page

…and have a look at more of what they have there.

They did not have much in their pre-cooked buffet spread, just the F4 but no, not that one-time very popular Taiwanese boy band but fried rice and fried bihun

…and fried kway teow and fried mee

…and there were some sausages and french fries and fried chicken wings in a food warmer. I did try the latter and thought it was pretty good. For dessert, they just had ice cream and watermelon, nothing much.

However, they did have a very wide range of choices in the sections for the barbecue and steamboat…

…and we loved the homemade chili dip…

– it sure was very good.

I did not take photographs of everything but we had a lot of seafood – the prawns…

…and the cockles…

The pre-marinated meat for the barbecue…

…was very nice. I liked especially the beef and the lamb, not so much the chicken and all in all, I would say that we had a really delightful BBQ & steamboat dinner…

…that night.

We sure would not mind going for it again soon.
