Dinner At Fung Sheng Steamboat, Bercham, Ipoh

Yesterday afternoon (Friday) while I was having lunch with my sister and friend, a Whatsapp message came through and the message was "I have booked 4 places for steamboat for tonight." It was because we as senior citizens (60 years and above) can enjoy special price at RM25.90 per person. For those 13 - 59 years, the rate is RM59.90. So yesterday evening, we were here at Fung Sheng Steamboat which our friend came to know through Facebook.

Our friend booked a table for 4, indoor with air-con.
Upon arrival, we requested to change our table to the outdoor with fresh air.
Fortunately, there was a table that was not reserved yet, just next to this little garden.
To get the food that we want, we have to walk a short distance to the indoor with air-con.
This is where we get the plates or bowls to hold whatever we picked for the steamboat, grill or bbq. Just take a walk around here to check out the food which are displayed on your left and right. The following are some of the food items available.
Some of the seafood available.
Meat on skewers.
Shelled prawns on skewers.
For the steamboat or hot pot, we can choose 2 out of 6 soups available. We picked pork bones and tom yam. The other 4 soups are tomato, cheese, and etc. (I can't remember the other 2 soups).
We started with crabs, prawns and fresh mushrooms in the steamboat.
Nice big and fresh prawns.
 Both the soups we picked were tasty. Every now and then, they will come to top up on the soups.
Then we had cuttlefish and scallop, After 2 rounds of food from the steamboat, we moved on to grilled food.
To start off, we picked some meat and shelled prawns on skewers.
Grilling in action.
We tried different types of meat, chicken wings, prawns and crabs. At 8:30pm, we were informed that we can try our luck at catching live prawns and crabs with locking tongs. Only limited number of prawns and crabs were let loose into the water trough. Not easy to see because the trough was dark and the bright lights shining up from the bottom of the trough is glaring to the eyes. I went with our friend. Hooray, our friend managed to catch 3 crabs and 1 big prawn.
We can use this oiled paper on a metal tray to grill our food. When the paper gets black, one of the staff will come to change a new one for us.
The chicken wings were well marinated and very tasty.
We need to watch the chicken wings because it gets charred easily.
While waiting for the crabs to cook on the grill, we had our jelly dessert and fruits.
This was the last item we ate. By then we were all very full.
The cost of dinner came to RM113.95 for 4 people including 10% service tax.
On our way out, I saw this painting on the wall.
This place is worth going again because the food is fresh and the service is good.
I used to share about the big grasshoppers seen in my garden. One day when it started to munch on the edibles instead on just on the leaves, I decided to move the grasshopper to a shrub away from my house.
Since then, it has not appeared in my garden again. I hope it likes it new home.


A father can give his sons homes and riches,
but only the Lord can give them understanding wives.
(Proverbs 19:14, The Living Bible-TLB)

  3. I want to join in too but need to wait many years to get senior citizen discount!!! Lol. Used to enjoy such steamboat gathering during younger days. But now also can do steamboat at home but of course the hassle, preparing and cleaning. Eating out is more convenient and more choices.

    1. Oh yes, you will have to wait a long time to enjoy the seniors discount. I did steamboat one CNY but I prepared too much. Since we are no longer big eaters, it is back to a few simple dishes for CNY for 4 of us.

  4. The food looks delicious. Here in the US we are still worried about being too close to other people at buffet restaurants. You are lucky that you have a safe environment.

    1. Not surprising because we all have our own preferences. Thank you, Krolowa.

  14. Steamboat outdoors? That's nice...and so cheap!!! Here, more expensive and we get all the frozen supermarket stuff, not worth paying the money for that at all. No crabs and at best, some tiny shrimps, no prawns...not worth the trouble of removing the shell to eat even!

  19. Oh my goodness what a delightful place. I imagine that food was excellent. Oh goodness, did you capture Mr. Grasshopper and move him to his new home? They move quickly. I like to tell them to scoot along, bye bye.
    We had a big breakfast and a small lunch so tonight we had a small snack. I ate a handful of mini pretzels and my husband had bean dip with potato chips. I like your meal much better. Thank you for sharing with us. I learn many new things each time I visit you.

  22. I can see by your photos, you had a delicious and plentiful dinner to eat. All your photos are so beautifully done. Your grasshopper is probably munching on another's veggie patch as I type this. :)
