Korean Stone BBQ Steamboat, Ampang

My buffet marathon in my latest visit to KL has gone from crazy to absolutely madness! If you follow my blog closely, I have been to 2 Japanese Buffet, 1 Chinese Dim Sum Buffet and now a so called Korean style buffet. This place is called Korean Stone BBQ Steamboat which located along Jalan Ampang. This road is very jam during dinner hours. If you came from far, this is not a place you wish to dine. You will be torturing yourself when seeing yourself stuck in the long traffic jam. Everyday voucher brought me here with thier link as follow:

Let's begin by picking up our raw food.
More raw foods
Drinks are not included in their buffet package. Charge separately @RM1.00 per pax but it is bottomless. Kinda stupid to me because I do not understand why don't they just add inside the buffer package cost. Oh ya...btw, their buffet is cost RM27.80 per pax.
Some cooked rice, noodles, porridge and shark fins. Hardly can taste the fins
Here is their desserts. Look at how dirty this is. You don't feel like picking up food from here don't you? However, when you are just paying RM13.90 per pax when using Everyday voucher for a buffet, you just can't complain.
Live frog for BBQ too. I saw how they slaughter them. I lost my appetite after that.
Big Clams. This one is nice. Take more!
Here are their livestock. Just a few fish to be picked and the crabs are the most popular ones. They finished very fast.
This is the so called Korean Stone. You put the food you wish to be grilled here.
This is their steamboat. They only got two soup choices for you which are Tom Yam and Clear Soup. It is a total insult if to compare with Restaurant Harbour Steamboat's Tom Yam soup.
I am showing off my grilling skills. Anyway, the lighting here are so bad. I can't even see my food is ready or not.
This is how our table is look like. Well, it is normal when we are eating steamboat right? I think I consider my table as the cleanliest.
They occupied the whole 2nd floor. Open air concept steamboat. Pretty good idea.
Cooking your own food is always a fun thing to do but to judge the food freshness, this restaurant no where near that unless you choose from their livestock counter. Parking here is ample. The service is very poor here. The waiter and waitress are not alert enough to check whether to refill the soup in your steamboat or not. Another thing very absurd is you must purchase their wet tissue either you are going to use it or not. Where got such thing, right? Nonsense!

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
