I have always enjoyed having steamboat with family and friends when I was younger, and that happy feeling stayed throughout whenever I relive the experience with friends. The only issue I have with steamboat is that it is usually difficult to clear up afterwards. But other than that, It’s really fun soaking the various seafood and meat items into the thick delicious broth!
Let’s not forget about the delicious dipping sauces that you can mix and match with!
Now, so far I have only been eating outside whenever it comes to having steamboat, and that rare, annual occasion at home when we are celebrating Chinese New Year festivities.
Now, through Steamboat King, I am able to order my favourite side dishes and save time on grocery shopping and preparation!
They have quite the selection of items on their online menu, and thank goodness, they have steamboat bundle packages which save me quite a bit of time in searching for my favorite items!
Here’s the link to their promotional bundle: Steamboat King Bundle A (3-4pax).
Now let’s order and fast forward to the future when the delivery magically arrives!
Let’s take a look at the ingredients I ordered:
House-made speciality soup base:
Out of their five options, I selected ‘Pork Tonkatsu Soup’ and ‘Kimchi Soup’, two of my favourite soup bases for Korean and Japanese food. I also selected an optional upgrade to top up the Kimchi soup to 1.5 litres!
I selected their ‘Pork Belly Shabu (200g)’ as I personally prefer pork shabu over beef shabu when it comes to steamboat!
Here are the pre-picked ingredients that come with the bundled meal:
- Chicken Sausage (200 grams)
- Handmade Fish Balls (6 pieces)
- Chicken Shabu (200 grams)
- XL Tiger Prawns (6 pieces)
- Fresh White Fish Slices (200 grams)
- Superior Fish Paste (150 grams)
- Egg Tofu (1 roll)
- Enoki Mushrooms (100 grams)
- Chinese Long Cabbage (200 grams)
- Shanghai Green (200 grams)
- Fried Beancurd Skin Roll (4 pieces)
- Rice (1 bowl)
- Noodles (1 serving)
- FREE Home-made Sambal Chilli sauce (60 millilitres)
- FREE Thai Chilli sauce (60 millilitres)
- FREE Goma shoyu sauce (60 millilitres)
- Drink (1.5 litres) x1
- FREE Fresh Cold Fruit (3 pax)
Now that I look back on my order, that was A LOT of ingredients hahaha. Thank goodness our family was around to help eat all that delicious ingredients haha!
The soup came in an easy to pour transparent tetra pack, which I really appreciate because I can keep the excess in the fridge without worrying about spilling it all over the place.
The vegetables came in a beautiful black plastic box, and the raw ingredients came in a nice six-way circular tray. The entire layout on the dining table was amazing!
I must say, both soups smelled really delicious! The fragrance of the pork broth was mouth-watering and the kimchi soup was really fragrant!
When I dipped the pork shabu into the different soup bases, I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the flavour. The pork shabu tasted amazing in both soups and I quickly rushed to try the other ingredients on the table.
Honestly, I might be a little biased towards steamboat, but all of the dishes tasted really good with the soups! I must say, the fresh fish slices were amazing! The prawns were fresh and tasty too. The superior fish paste was hands down one of the tastiest I ever had.
It was so good that sometimes I rarely used the sauces with the ingredients. But their chilli sauces raised the bar to the next level. It was excellent and valued for money.
Overall, I give this bundle meal from Steamboat King an eight out of ten pots!
If you do not have a steamboat at home, they also provide the equipment at an affordable price.
