This time round, I organized a steamboat buffet dinner at Umami after reading quite a number of good reviews.
Umami is a steamboat buffet restaurant located in Sunway Mentari. We serve a large variety of fresh seafood, BBQ, vegetables, meat balls, drinks, fruits and desserts in a cozy environment. — Umami FB pageI made a reservation a day before since we're going in such a big group, 25 pax. and thus we get to dine in the VIP room #likeaboss cause we're awesome like that HAHA so not! Or else we will scare their customers away cause we were real loud and noisy :P
|Interior and exterior of Umami, they have outdoor seating as well (:|
|Everyone gets a set of these (:|
- Umami Chicken Soup
- Thai Tomyam Soup (✔)
- Fish Head Soup (✔)
- Thai White Tomyum Soup
- HK Herbal Soup (✔)
- Umami Pepper Soup
I tried the Umami Pepper Soup as well but it was too pepper-ish, tasted literally like a bottle of pepper mixed with water. The soup base tasted just okay, not flavourful enough to my liking.
|While waiting for our soup to be prepared, we went to get our ingredient for the steamboat.|
|You find yourself spoiled with an assortment of raw seafood, greens, frozen food and noodles! So many to choose from ╮((゜∀゜))╭|
|Drinks (Pu-er Tea, Ice Lemon Tea and Orange Juice) and ice provided as well. It'd would be better if they serve hot tea.|
and of course, ice creams! :D
|There's also a salad bar for starters! Love how colouful they presented it. Thumbs up for their salad, especially the egg salad and their sweet juicy cherry tomatoes (:|
|There's snack bars too. The deep fried squid ball and fried wantan are simply awesome, crispy to bits!|
Variety of condiments to go with our food, I personally love the thai sauce, so appetizing.
Without further ado, time to dig in the pot of treasure!
Fish head soup & Tomyam soup.
|Herbal soup & Tomyam Soup.|
|Look at the truckload amount of food we took, as if we have been fasting for weeks :P|
Not forgetting, there's beef (MY FAV!) and lamb strips too! (Y)
Too bad the lamb was not marinated so the gamey smell was too strong that it actually ruined the whole broth, had to request another new pot of soup. The beef was okay though.
|The feast doesn't end here, there's also grilled food prepared by the staff outside ranging from chicken wings to seafood.|
Not sure what type of clam is this, pretty chewy. I like (:
Their superb fingers-licking-good grilled chicken wings; to die for! Well marinated and coated with bbq honey sauce. How I wish my tummy is big enough to eat more of them T_T
|Say cheeseeeeeeee! Taking a break after round 1 of feasting :P|
How can I miss the icecream.. Chocalate chips and raspberry swirl vanilla icecream HO YEAH
|Ais Kacang for free upon ordering from the staff (: I didn't get to try this so I'm not sure how does it taste.|
After 2 hours plus of laughter and non stop stuffing ourselves with food, I guess everyone must be super bloated :D Good thing that Umami has no time limit so you can eat all you want and all you can without time constrain.
Now now, a dinner outing wouldn't be complete without some group photos right? Here goes!
|Candid shot :P|

Despite our age, we're still acting like a bunch of kids. Nehmind, forever young *self comfort LOLOL*
|That's what you get for being short T_T|
|Don't play play, my guy classmates all know how to pose for camera also!|
|Group photo according to colour of our clothes HAHA #lame |
Needless to say, it's always fun hanging out with these bunch of crazy classmates :D
