Dad treated us to a 2 in 1 steamboat and BBQ dinner last Saturday. We decided on MP Restaurant in Greentown, Ipoh. They have 3 types of soup choices for the steamboat - chicken, herbal or tomyam. We chosed the tomyam soup and after dunking so many seafood, meat and vegetables in it, the soup was absolutely delicious. The buffet spread was quite extensive. There's a wide selection of seafood and meat (all prepared differently for BBQ and steamboat), various vegetables and yong tau foo for the steamboat, a small selection of sushi, dessert, fruits and salad plus standard buffet offerings like fried noodles, fried rice, soup, roast duck, steamed chicken, sausages, vegetables, french fries, mash potato (DIY), etc, and of course, drinks. The seafood being offered was fresh although we had no idea how long we should cook some of them, so......... trail and error, lor. Some turned out fine while others.......aaaargh..... turned disastrous. Heh, heh, that's what happens when one has never done a day of cooking in his/her life but........there were some seafood that we have never before cooked at home, so............ Oh yes, the restaurant also provided a herbal drink for anyone who might want it.........you know, all those BBQed food. First time we've come across such thing (maybe we are 'katak di bawah tempurung', heehee). By the way, senior citizens (those above 60 years of age) are entitled to a discount, so can bring your parents or grandparents.
MP Restaurant is located at 12A, Jalan Chin Choon Sam, Greentown, Ipoh.
