It seems that the weather is getting back up to speed again. The sun is finally in sight, the temperature is above 25 degrees, and perhaps we can cease worrying whether winter is really coming to Malaysia.

Irregardless if it’s winter or summer in Malaysia, it’s always a good time for some piping hot steamboat. We’ve sourced out some good steamboat locations and best part is, it’s only RM50 (and below!) per person.

1. Happy City

Happy City can be found in three places: two in Kepong and one in Kota Damansara. They are particularly commendable for their seafood that is always fresh. No matter which branch you go, you can be sure that it’ll be packed with both steamboat and barbecue fans, because good seafood is always magnetic. The prices for a steamboat dinner buffet are RM48 per adult, RM33.50 per senior citizen, free for children below 100cm, RM22.50 for children between 101cm and 135cm, and RM48 for children above 135cm.

You get to enjoy buffet spreads for both steamboat and BBQ options at just RM41 for an adult, RM21 for a child between 120cm and 140cm, and RM11 for a toddler.

Eatmor Paradise was once Mo Mo Paradise, but the name change certainly did not change the fact that steamboat here is an absolute paradise for fans.

To think that an adult get these at RM48, a senior citizen at RM38, a child between 110cm and 140cm at RM25, and a toddler at RM10, it’s pretty darn worth it.
