i want to vomit blood liao. i try to organize a steamboat gathering for my colleagues, i recommend coca and the raja inn, they said no good, the soup base is tasteless. omg.. i really don know what to recommend .
Actually soup base are meant to be tasteless. Because most tasty soups have a lot of MSG content. And soup is always meant to be drank at the last part and only small portions.
If initially is very tasty, after cooking for few rounds with the seafood and others, the soup will be very saltish at the end.
I also don't know what to recommend you.

wah earthlyblue, u seem very experienced in steamboat. I guess you always go steamboat buffet and gobble every food you see?

Swordsman, Raja Inn their soup is so nice!! Tell your colleagues if not enough taste, they can throw in salt, pepper, soy sauce or even chili sauce! Which will of course, spoil the original taste of the soup!!

no offense but china people are damn unhealthy bunch of people. they like steamboat with very strong taste. They love sichuan mala (damn oily). chicken soup (damn salty) and herbal soup (damn bitter).

that's why they love melamine too. LOL... more protein!

last time when i was working in thailand few years ago, every week i will eat steamboat at least once. eating steamboat is like a way of life to the thais. not only MK, Coca type but those road side issarn style hotpot steamboat which they call (jeem joom). Imagine the number of MK restaurants are much more than the Macdonalds' KFC, that shows you how they loved steamboat. It's only these few years more and more steamboat joints sprout out in singapore. I will not go those steamboat places where you have to take your own food, because the food is exposed in the open and not very hygienic due to people walking past by and breathing, talking while getting the food.
i am selective on food. When i went Paradise on Earth, I will only ask for 1 plate of prawns (4pcs) or sometimes i don;t order. but when I go Coca, I will order at least 3-4 plates, because the prawns from Coca is tastier and fresher.

In our lifetime, we can only live that long and eat that much. Don't waste money and time on lousy food.

No lar !! Most of my colleagues are singaporeans, got 2 are malaysians, out of the 2 malaysians, there is 1 vegetarian, so it's quite difficult to organize a steamboat outing or makan outing to cater to everyone's taste, some don eat spicy food, some like spicy food, there is 1 person who is vegetarian. I thought i very picky on food, they all are more picky than me. lol.. oh yeah all my colleagues I'm inviting are girls.

Yeh.. same here.. I'm also organizing steamboat dinner, but damn difficult...
One vegetarian. One muslim (no pork). One don't eat seafood...

So...

Mission impossible for me...
