Went to the famous Yuen Steamboat Restaurant, located at Sunway area last night.
There are many selections of marine creatures (prawns - udang harimau, mantis, kertas & alien lookalike, fishes-bawal putih & another 2 types, cuttlefish - torpedo, kurita & katak, kerang sate, 3 different types of sea cucumber and various other siput that I do not know the names). Also
available are various other balls and stuffs that you put into soups. Vegetables itself occupied a big table. Also available are mee/bihun/nasi goreng, fruits and a few other kuihs, don't forget there are various flavours of ice-creams.
That is the most lavish spread of seafoods I had ever seen and it's all you can eat with only RM20 price tag.
I saw quite a number of Malays even though it is a Chinese restaurant and I could not find the 'halal' sticker. So, I stick to seafoods only la. Between the three of us, we ate around 1 - 2 kg of prawns & a lot of flowers (as vege). Since mandi bunga is good, we figured makan bunga is
Since I like to try weird items, got a shock of my life when one of the sea cucumber type menatang that I took suddenly sprouts flower-like-thingie after been cooked. Took some gumption to eat those. But, I really could not eat the mantis prawn and the alien look-alike prawn (it looks like a cockroach laaaa).
Overall, I would give 3 1/2 stars out of 5. The area is clean enough, the tomyam is good tho the soup is a bit bland. There are many selections of food. Tho the minus is that it does not have the 'halal' stickers or at least a confirmation that all the chicken are taken from halal slaughterhouse.
But, I still like the Seoul Garden more. Hehehe.
Ada la..dia stick on the cermin...right infornt of the seafood.

Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
