Tian Sian Hui Wei has 3 incredible soup bases for you to choose from, Original, Spicy, and Vegetarian. These 3 soup base is already enough to make a lot of first time customers turn into their regular customers. Seriously! One of the main reasons Tian Sian Hui Wei has such a high return rate is due to the soup base alone. A lot of customers simply cannot resist themselves from having another sip of their soup.


Once the soup is delivered to your table, the smell, the fragrance of the soup alone will make you drool! ~ (〃∀〃)~♡ It is just that good!


The soup base comes with a price of RM41 for Big Pot, and RM35 for Small Pot, but we highly recommend that you go for the Ying Yang Pot where you can enjoy 2 different types of soup base at one go~~~ And we really recommend that you choose the Spicy Soup Base as one of it. The Spicy Soup Base is prepared using large amount of vegetables, allowing the spiciness of the soup to have just the spiciness but at the same time not irritating to your throat. Just plain awesome.


👉Steamboat Food Ingredients👈

To preserve the freshness of the ingredients, the food ingredients is ordered in an Ala Carte method, you order what you want, and the ingredients will be prepared fresh from the kitchen.


We had a few of their extensive menu and here are some of the most recommended ingredients that we think you should try. First is of course the meats~~~ ( ̄﹃ ̄)


The meat slices here are all very thin, 1, 2, 3, swipes in the boiling soup base and it’s ready to be delivered to your mouth. But worry not, although the slices are thin, the amount of meat slices given will shock you as they are delivered to the table. The types of meats that you should go for? Definitely the Pork, Beef, and Lamb~~~

Then there’s this special food item.


The look of this food ingredient gives out a scream saying “CHEESEEEEE”!!  But when we took a scoop after it’s cook, we found out that it contains crab meat, bits of shrimp, potato, and some other ingredients fusing together with the cheese to produce an extraordinary flavour. To perfectly cook this dish, all you need to do is to simmer it in the boiling soup base for 5 to 10 minutes~~

👉How to Enjoy Steamboat at Tian Sian?👈


If you notice, we did not introduce any special sauce like we did for other steamboats. This is because Tian Sian promotes a way of enjoying steamboat without sauces. This is also how the Taiwanese enjoy their steamboat! But after receiving feedbacks from the customers, they have prepared some basic sauces like soy sauce & chilli for you.


Here are some tips for you to consider when dining at Tian Sian Hui Wei to enjoy maximum flavours and satisfaction.

1, Eat without sauces.

2, Have some meats first then finish with green veggie.

3, Drink the soup after you refilled the soup

4, The spicy pot will get more spicy as you eat, so you need to take out the chilli if you cannot take too much spiciness.


Again, Tian Sian Hui Wei is fully equipped with air-conditioning. So you can enjoy your steamboat without worrying that it’ll be too hot! So faster go ajak your kawans and families liaw~~~!
