Zi Wei Yuan Steamboat Restaurant @ Raja Uda, Butterworth

Zi Wei Yuan Steamboat is located along Jalan Raja Uda, near to the 9 Emperor Temple.  The Restaurant serves traditional charcoal heated steamboat and opens only at night (6pm-11pm). We manage to find a place as soon as we arrived since the restaurant was not crowded during the time we dine-in due to heavy rain but started filling up once the rain stopped. The ambiance of the restaurant is comfortable for dine-in. They have both indoor and outdoor seating area. The outdoor was covered with shed to protect over the sun and rain. They have both set and ala-cate items. Ala-cate menu offers seafood choices include fish, prawns, oyster, abalone, scallops, assortment mushrooms (Strawberry mushroom, Button mushroom, Abalone mushroom, Golden Mushroom), Varity of meat (Pork Balls, Chicken, Beef Slice, Pig Innards) and leafy vegetables. They also have 3 types of noodles to go with the soup (Vermicelli, Instant Noodles, and Yellow Mee).  I ordered 1 grouper steamboat and ala-cate (Mushroom, Fishballs, and Maggie), water and Herbal Tea.
Herbal Tea @ RM 1.70
Its spicy and savourish flavour gives extra kick to the food. Just dip the food in the sauce it is just perfect.
Grouper Steamboat @ RM 40 includes of big chunks of grouper fish, seaweed, taufu, and vegetables. The soup tasted smooth and milky. Soup was well flavoured with fish and yam that gives it a sweet taste.  It goes well with the foods but at the end, the soup gets salty as we refill the soup many times. 
Overall, it was a satisfied dinner with my sister and its heaven to enjoy the steamboat during the rainy season. The foods are tasty, fast service and attentive staff.
