A week ago, I received an email from Cactus Kit, the admin of http://ieatishootipost.sg/, regarding their Makan Mission trip to Sandakan. A night before heading to Sandakan, they will be dropping by in KK, hence, they wouldn't want to miss the good chance of having good food in KK. Angeline and I planned a 'welcoming' dinner for them at Sri Maju Steamboat which is just located across the street of their hotel.
The frozen "Loong Dan" (Grouper) Fish
Instead of having the normal Steamboat, we reserved the special Grouper Fish Steamboat for the dinner. The owner was kind enough to show us some parts of the frozen fish.
The huge fish immediately caught everyone attentions
Loong Dan Steamboat
Recommended by the owner, the fish steamboat shouldn't mix with other ingredients (i.e. prawns) as it will kill the taste of the fish. So, what's so special about the fish? The meaty fish not only tasted fresh and nice on its own, the thick fish skin also had a nice texture. The broth was so flavourful as well. Simple and nice.
Wow....yummm
The best part of the fish is the 'tail'. The skin was soft and flavourful.

Yam Rice
Yam Rice is one of the signature dish of the restaurant. Flavourful rice with yam chunks and chicken meat as ingredients, topped with fried onion and spring onion for the extra aroma.

What'll happen when a group of foodies got together?

Behind the scene...
While the 'makan kakis' at the next table had started their feast, our table which consisted mostly foodies and bloggers, were still enjoying the photo shooting.

Finally, it was time to enjoy the meal...
I'm hungry...rrrryy
The Loong Dan Fish Steamboat itself ( 7kg x RM120 per kg), cost RM840 and the whole dinner for 21 persons cost RM900. The dinner was kindly sponsored by Saracen Reef World.
