|King's Laksa Steamboat - Our Spread|
King's Laksa Steamboat ('KLS') is a steamboat buffet restaurant renowned for its Signature Laksa soup base. Founded in 2010, KLS has been around for a while and has their own loyal patrons.

Once seated, you can see a white laminated order sheet, where you can choose some of their specialities. Soup base, finger food, noodles, meat, seafood and dumpling.
For the soup base, KLS also offer chicken, herbal and ma-la. We choose their signature dual soup Laksa and chicken. The Laksa soup base is rich, lemak and packs of flavour. You can even see the top grade of dried prawn they use on the bottom of their stock. Simply put, the Laksa soup base is top notch. The chicken soup base is milky, robust with a touch of soothing effect in contrast to the laksa soup base.

KLS also offer triple soup base for those who want more options. You just have to top up $8.
|The Sauces & Condiments|
Other than the ingredients mention on the order paper, they have 35 more steamboat ingredients for you to choose from. Check out the pictures below. This part is self-service, including the sauces and garnishes.

The meat is sliced thinly and the portion will depend on the number of people ordering. My personal pick is their pork and sliced mutton because of their fattiness. For healthy diners, they also have chicken breast, beef and lean pork.
|Seafood: Cockles, Clams and Prawns|
Meat: Lean Pork, Mutton, Chicken and Pork Belly
For the seafood, our personal pick is the prawns and crabs. The prawns are fresh, bouncy and crunchy, while the flower crabs tasted fresh and sweet. Of course, there are cockles that you can choose to have with the laksa soup base, however as it is served with its shell, it becomes messy when you want to scoop the meat out.

Another reason that you must visit KLS is their cooked food. Their prawn paste chicken wings really got standard. Well marinated with prawn paste, fried upon order, you sure will get piping hot chicken wings on the table. Taste-wise, it is crispy, aromatic and succulent internally. Even our fellow har cheong gai addict gave her two thumbs up for this. We actually order the har cheong gai a couple of times.

|Fried Tofu - Accidental Order - tasted like fried fermented tofu|
The same applies to other cooked food such as Fried Fish Balls, Luncheon Meat, Fried Tofu and Mini Mantou. I enjoy the fried mantou with the solid laksa broth, something that you never try but you can't deny its deliciousness.

The rest of the ingredients are as enticing, with such extensive selections I am sure that everyone can find something that they like. Not in the picture are beancurd skin and Nissin instant noodles, that are must-have ingredients in steamboat.
On top of the mention above, the buffet price included free flow of drinks, dessert and ice cream as well.

The décor of this place is bright and spacious. However, as you are eating steamboat in the air-conditioned room, expect to come out a bit smelly.
