Citarasa Seafood Market Steamboat is not the usual steamboat restaurant. You literally ‘shop’ for your food because you get to choose your steamboat ingredient in the market area. You don’t have to order the steamboat set and force to have something you don’t like. Of course, they do have steamboat sets for you to choose but i prefer to choose my own ingredients. They also serve cooked food, you can ask for steamed fish, fried rice and other regular restaurant dishes at here.
Check out the fresh steamboat ingredients they have in the market area. They have plenty of fresh seafood, big crabs, big oyster, live fish, live prawns, fresh sashimi, veges, noodles, soup base ingredients, fish/meatballs, chicken/meat slices, cooked food ( fried calamari. fried fish fillet,etc..), fresh fruit juice and fruits. There is no pork serving here, it’s a pork-free restaurant.
Just get what you want and put them inside a basket, leave it to the staff and they will send them to your table.
The chicken soup taste much better than the tomyam soup. If you want a really nice tomyam soup, you can get extra tomyam soup ingredient from the market place and it’s cost RM5 extra. They have some soup base ingredients in the market place, you can boil your own herbal soup, salty vege tofu soup, etc.. The chicken soup is good enough for me.
I suggest you to pick the fresh fish but not the pre-packed fish, the fish i get was not so fresh and has strong fishy smell.
Fresh and big oyster! RM9.50 per one, big size. You will need at least two bites to finish 1 oyster. I enjoyed the oysters with lemon juice and a hit of Tabasco.
Big fat scallop.
Fresh prawns, toothpick for scale.
Fish ball with roe filling. Must try!
Overall, here is a good steamboat place. As for price, depends on your own pocket. Can be as cheap as possible or you can pay more for better stuffs.
