Only Me is a relatively new steamboat & BBQ buffet restaurant that opened in Kepong early this year. Despite being the new kid on the block, they are doing exceptionally well and are giving QQ a run for their money. If you don’t know yet, both restaurants sit in the same row and they are just a stone’s throw away from each other.
The price for an adult is RM38.80 while children under 90cm eat for free. Price wise, it’s pretty standard considering most of the steamboat buffet in KL charge almost the same. For those looking for a long and relaxing dinner, do consider this place because there’s no time limit or how much you can have.
While Only Me’s variety of ingredients is far from impressive (especially if you compare them with QQ), they make up in quality. Honestly, we did not expect much on from the seafood, more so considering it’s a buffet kind of establishment. But we were pleasantly surprised to find that most of the seafood here is fresh. Live shellfish including mussels, clams and cockles are available too.
If you’re a prawn lover I think you wouldn’t be disappointed with what you get. Besides the usual tiger prawns, river prawns like those used in Thai cuisine are thrown into the mix. They are easy to peel and come out a whole piece too.
Flower crabs were very enjoyable – the flesh was sweet and firm and did not have that dreadful ‘dead’ taste.
As for the live shellfish, needless to say they were absolutely fresh and tasted clean without any gritty feeling.
We didn’t really care for the BBQ but from what I could see, many customers seem to be having a blast with it. Like QQ, Only Mee also serve a couple of cooked dishes. The most popular items are their Crabs in Special House Sauce and Seremban style baked crabs.
They are undeniably delicious so it’s no wonder the customers rush for them whenever they come out from the kitchen. During our 2 hours at the restaurant, we saw the crabs being replenished three times, and we always end up with some bits here and there. So if you really want the crabs, be prepared to fight for it.
Overall, we were satisfied with the meal and felt they are definitely the better steamboat and BBQ buffet restaurant around. Thus, I would recommend them to any steamboat lover. One thing they should improve is their soups, as they were far from being great.
Lest I forget, for those who plan to come in 8 pax or more, do note that you are eligible for a free crab dish. The catch is, you need to make a booking three days in advance.
