Finding a Muslim-friendly steamboat/seafood place in Klang Valley can be quite a headache, considering that most steamboat/seafood joints serves pork and many other non-Halal items on their menu. Scouring Klang Valley for a Muslim friendly seafood restaurant, we found this seafood restaurant; Kungfu Steam Seafood. Located in Bandar Puteri Puchong, this Pork-Free restaurant offers all things steamed seafood.
Kungfu Steam Seafood is not your usual steamboat or hotpot restaurant. New to the Malaysian shores, Kungfu Steam Seafood is all about enjoying the freshest seafood items steamed at your table, using minimal ingredients to retain the natural flavours of the seafood served. Steaming process doesn’t take really long, only 3-5 minutes each time with their powerful steamer, giving you enough time to enjoy your dishes at a rather comfortable pace while chatting with your dining companions.
Upon entering, you will see the Kungfu Steam Seafood Market on the side of the restaurant. This place houses plenty of live seafood. Spotted easily at the aquariums over here are premium fishes, lobsters, crabs, prawns, clams and many more.
Kungfu Steam Seafood offers a main dining area on ground level with air conditioning. A plus point as you wouldn’t have to feel steaming hot while dining. There are also four private dining rooms on the first floor. The restaurant is also children friendly as there’s a playroom provided at the ground level for young children to keep themselves occupied while the adults are dining.
Before the steaming starts, you will be asked to choose from a choice soup or porridge. Your choice will then be placed into a pot beneath the steamer so that when all the ingredients are being steamed above, all the natural juices and flavours will drip below and flavour your choice of soup or porridge. Interesting, no? We will only get to see the final outcome of the soup or porridge at the end of our meal, when we are done savouring all the seafood items.
There are plenty of seafood items on their menu that you can indulge in when you patronize this restaurant, but here’s recommending some:
Signature Flower Crab Porridge, Clams, Scallops with Garlic and Glass Noodles and Live Tiger Prawns
Mixed Mushroom, Mixed Vegetables, Enoki Chicken Rolls, and Red Snapper
Clams (RM4.80/100gm). These clams are simply steamed with sliced ginger and goji berries. There are no msg, salt or oil added to them.The outcome? Naturally sweet clams that’s good to be had on it’s own.
Live Tiger Prawns (RM12.80/100gm). Tiger Prawns was next after the clams. They are pretty fat and were carefully arranged on the steamer by the staff. Topped with a garden of salad, these crustaceans looked so beautiful in their bright orange hue. Juicy, sweet and tender, you’ll simply be begging for more than just a plate of these.
Scallops with Garlic and Glass Noodles (RM19.80/2pcs). These fat scallops were placed on a mound of glass noodles and were simply garnished with chopped garlic and goji berries. The bland glass noodles absorbed all the juicy goodness from the scallops and were absolutely delicious.
Red Snapper (RM9.80/100gm). The Red Snapper was fished out from the aquarium outside prior to steaming, so I can vouch for it’s freshness. I’m not really a fan of fishes with lotsa bones in it, but I had this nevertheless. The flesh was juicy and while the skin had a lovely collagen-like substance. No added flavours whatsoever. A pretty refreshing way to enjoy a fish dish, I must say.
Enoki Chicken Rolls (RM16.80). These thinly sliced chicken rolls were practically pregnant with enoki mushrooms, baby corns and carrots. Highly recommended to those who wants a variety in their meal and not just the seafood.
Mixed Mushrooms (RM19.80-BIG). Suspects spotted on the platter; enoki musrooms, Shittake mushrooms, oyster musrooms and Shimeiji mushrooms alongside with some baby corns. These mushrooms were bursting with umami flavours. I’m a huge fan of all things mushroomy, and therefore, I enjoyed these alot.
Mixed Vegetables (RM19.80-BIG). These were our fibre source of the day. They were no added flavours to it, and yet, they tasted just as sweet after being steamed.
Signature Flower Crab Porridge (RM33.80-BIG). Once the steamer cover was lifted at the end of our meal, we were treated to the sight of bubbling porridge and flower crab. The staff will assist you to add on spring onions, ginger slices, salted vegetables and coriander to the porridge for extra flavours. The porridge was creamy and thick. The natural flavours of seafood were well infused into the porridge. A very comforting and satisfying ending for our meal, I must say.
My experience over here is very enjoyable, and being a non-pork eater, knowing that the restaurant does not serve any pork or lard puts my mind to a peaceful rest as well and I could eat without doubting the ingredients.
Overall, the dining experience in Kungfu Steam Seafood, Puchong surpassed my expectations with both ambiance and service and I highly recommend this for those who would like to dine with their family, friends or even business associates.
