Umami Steamboat serve 4 types of soup namely Tom Yam, Chicken, Fish Head, and Herbal soup. If you love Tom Yam then you shouldn't miss this because it is thick and spicy enough to satisfy your 'pedas' need. Alternately Herbal soup is one you shouldn't miss too. It doesn't have the 'over herbal' taste and everything is tongue friendly that you can even drink directly from the pot even before you begin!
Right before you begin, you can actually munch the moment you sit down. No more waiting for it to boil after a long and tiring day. Head to the snack corner for a start to open up your appetizer.
A wide variety of ready cook snack / food is there for the hungry monster for people like me. They aren't ordinary snack, they are addictive snack which range from east to west.
Drooling already? Remember this is just the appetizer. Oh before I forget there are plenty of speciality when it come to choices for sauce. Most Malaysian can't / wouldn't dine without some awesome sauce and Umami got that cover, so you sauce lover need to fret not.
Just before I even have chance to go into the main dish, there were already more food served, this time it is from the BBQ area.
I personally loves the fried chicken, it is my munching "buddy" within the waiting period. I just can't stop om nom nom nom that piece by piece till I strip it down bone by bone. One of the best part here compare to other places is that Umami offer a wide variety of side dish and you will be amazed by what they have on the dish selection area.
Now ain't that mouth watering? No? Indeed these are just some 'typical' dish that every steamboat should have. But here come what really differentiate Umami from the rest..
Yes, from scallop to oyster to lamb to beef to crab and the list goes on are some of the few dish you will see in every table. Malaysian do loves seafood don't we? All these are freshly served where you can still feel the tender in every bite. Think that's the end of the dishes? Sorry to disappoint you, there's more..
The only regret I had having dinner here in Umami is that I don't have a huge tummy to fill everything in. I didn't get a chance to try out everything and let's not forget there is a salad station too.
I would say with given dishes, it is definite a catch to dine here as everyone would go home not just with a full stomach, but also a satisfy on the face. Umami did train their staff well in handling a full house customer, they tend to change a new plate for you once it is almost full with shell, they will come adding in more soup shall yours is drying up soon, and they handle you like they how they wish to be handled.
