Steamboats are nothing uncommon. You can find it everywhere in Kuching, Malaysia, or in any other parts of Asia. But, having spent many years watching steamboat meals in the TVB drama serials, I couldn't help but to think that there might be something special with Hong Kong steamboats. So naturally when we were in Hong Kong, it was on my list of must-do.
According to our food bible, there's this place aptly called Yaw Guet Hei which literally meant Got Bone Smell, which explains why they gave us this.
In Hong Kong restaurants, they really make you do the work before you order.
Basically that meant Greg, being a banana, is out of the picture. Which left me (a half-baked handicapped reader trying to recall chinese characters from TVB subtitles) & CK who knows enough Mandarin to order the whole menu.
Choices for the soup bases ranges from the traditional soup bone with fresh corn and vegie, tom yam, chicken with wine and another more extensive version of traditional one.
Sww-eeeet! Where in the world did these corns come from?
They were one of the best that I've ever had.

From watching steamboat meals in HK restaurants in TVB series, now I was eating steamboat in a HK restaurant while watching TVB series. I knew I was in heavenly bliss.
I have completed the circle of life. I was finally where the stars were.
