KL 2017 Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner


My family had an early Chinese New Year reunion dinner because my sister’s family and I will be going to Penang on the Chinese New Year eve. My brother in law’s family is in Penang and he goes back there every Chinese New Year.

We had steamboat (hot pot in Canadian’s term) for the reunion dinner. We went to Lao Wang Steamboat.

As Chinese New Year is near, “Yu Sang” is already being served in the restaurant.

We had “hoi jit” (jelly fish) instead of raw salmon in the “yu sang”.

We wished each other good health, good fortune, good advancement in studies and career while mixing the “yu sang”.

After clearing the table, the server brought in our steamboat ingredients. We ordered a couple of set ones and a number of individual ingredients. The above is the set for seafood.

The pot was rather small for a big group of people.

We had the pork stomach pepper soup as our soup base. We ordered at least 3 rounds of soup refill.

While waiting for the broth to come to a boil, we snacked on some deep fried fermented bean curd marinated pork belly.

Here are some of the other individual ingredients that we ordered.

I like a lot of green vegetables for my steamboat.

A pot of abundance.

The condiments that I had was the chili sauce with kasturi lime juice and seasoned soy sauce.

The last items to go into the steamboat are the noodles and eggs. They are the fillers.

The bill came to RM336.60 (about CAD102) for a our group of 11 people. The funny thing is they gave us 2 coupons of RM400 each from Enjoy Our Tour company. Perhaps the owner of this restaurant also has a tour company.

It’s been many years since I had a reunion dinner with my dad.
