2 in 1: Korean sizzling steamboat

As a steamboat lover, I’m often on the lookout for affordable steamboat places in Klang Valley. When the food is halal, even better! Because my Muslim friends can then join me without worrying. rif took me to Red Wok for dinner two weeks back and I found the food quite tasty.




Assorted vegetables

We went for the All You Can Eat Steamboat/Sizzling Buffet, which offered a good variety of steamboat and BBQ items. This buffet also included fried rice, noodles, roast chicken, braised beef brisket, squid kerabu and other fried items.


Fried fish paste and fuchuk


Roast chicken and squid kerabu

The kerabu packed quite a punch and I liked that they were generous with the squid. Also tasty was the beef brisket – redolent of 5-spice and cooked till tender.




Assorted meat and seafood balls


Red Wok offers three types of soup (clear, tom yam and herbal) but when we were there, they only offered clear soup or tom yam. I wouldn’t recommend the clear soup because it was rather bland in flavour. Get the tom yam instead.


Nom nom time!

The latter was flavourful, even before the ingredients were added in. Best part is, we didn’t feel thirsty after the meal so I’m guessing not much MSG was used. The steamboat items were pretty basic – the regular items were there and ingredients were refilled constantly to ensure supply.


Steamboat ingredients

rif took charge of the grilling since I terrible at that. Unless you want to get oil spatters on your body or clothes, grilling and sizzling items are best left in rif’s expert hands.


Red and green chilli sauce

The green and red chilli sauces were good stuff. If you like your food to be spicy, these sauces (especially the green one) will kick it up a few notches.


Ice cream and chocolate cake from the dessert selection

Ice cream, cakes and fresh fruits are available for dessert. I found some of the cakes a tad sweet, but the chocolate cake was not too bad. On the whole, I enjoyed both my visits to Red Wok.


Creme caramel


Fruit salad

The food isn’t fantastic, but it’s definitely one of the better steamboat buffets around. And for RM33 per pax (Korean sizzling steamboat), it’s good value for money. The steamboat buffet cost RM28 per pax. Prices are nett.

oh Red Wok! My friend who went there said it was so-so. Also based on your review, it seems like it’s above average only!?

Bangsar Babe June 18, 2013 - 11:02 am

It’s above average, and I still think it’s better than the popular steamboat buffet places in Sunway. For RM33, you get what you pay for. ;)

yay, looks like a lot of ingredients to produce a very flavorsome steamboat! i have to admit that steamboat’s not on my mind during this current smoggy weather, but when the rains eventually return, maybe it’ll be time to head to red wok! :D

Bangsar Babe June 18, 2013 - 11:25 am
