Unlike most steamboat restaurants, this one serves fresh, “live” seafood. Don’t be surprised to find your crabs and prawns still jumping on your dining table! Oh yes, Damansara Village is a pork-free, MSG-free restaurant, which has an extensive menu that could fit any budget. While there are set meals that diners could order, there is also an à la carte menu for custom orders.
While many people have had steamboat dinners before, I bet many do not know the proper way to eat steamboat. I have to admit I had no clue and what I usually would do is dump everything into my pot. Well, here is an eye-opening video that I recorded, when Allan Phoon gave a demonstration on the art to enjoy steamboat to the maximum. What is the first ingredient into the pot? What should follow suit? Check out my video below.

As you can see from this video, first item into the pot should be the crabs, followed by prawns, clams, fish, mixed condiments, and lastly, either vegetables or noodles and eggs.
Anyway, also different from all other restaurants, DV@LW spots a man-made “drain” structure, where children can fish. Nets are provided for them, at no cost. Steamboat dinners should be a leisure meal, so this “longkang” (drain) fishing is good to keep the kids occupied.
As one of the partners, Allan Phoon, is the owner of Farm In The City, in the pipeline is to bring in some animals to DV@LW. 2013 is the Year of the Snake, so the official mascot of the restaurant is a snake by the name of Saladin. Cared for by Allan since it was a baby, this 20ft long python now calls DV@LW home. Even if you are not a snake lover like me, Saladin is worth checking out, if only for its sheer size.
