Finally, for the last 3 hours before returning home (St.Paul's Church), we arrived at this shopping mall. Though the intention was not shopping, just to kill time, we leisurely walked from one floor to the other stopping by at the stalls. After the first hour, it sort of became tiring and with the last buffet breakfast at Philea Resort & Spa, hunger called. While I was hoping for another Nyonya meal (BESS Kopitiam, Eleven Bistro or Bistro Year 1673), the friends however preferred a steamboat meal at Johnny's I have been to at the Summit Subang Jaya outlet.
Anyway, we sat in this quite nice and clean ambiance and the friends ordered a couple of items for the plain soup. We also called for ais kacang and coconut water possibly to be shared among the three of us.
The first arrival was the metal pot with the clear broth and then the varieties of seafood and veggies. As the soup started simmering, the chilies, fish balls and veggies were added in and then, scooped up and eaten with the spicy dips. The clear soup by itself was quite bland but once the items were cooked inside, it flavoured up and the dips, wow! lovingly spicy as per my liking. The ice kacang and the chilled coconut drink definitely were good to wash down the spiciness.
Johnny's will be a good change compared to a steamboat meal at the road side stalls because of the air-conditioned ambiance as not to sweat profusely. But of course, comes with a different pricing.
