Restoran Talipon, Kuchai Lama

I've always heard that Restoran Talipon is a place that serves cheap all-you-can-eat steamboat buffet at RM18.80.
Somehow, never had the urge to go until one fine day, gary was feeling really carnivorous and he wanted meat. Lots of it. ._."
So off we went to Talipon, rather early actually, just before 7pm and it's already packed with customers. We took our seats and soon, was off to take some food to cook..
The selection was ok, marinated meat, some seafood, lots of balls ( fish balls, sotong balls, veg balls etc..hehe), vegetables, desserts and cooked food section (ie, fried bee hoon, curry chicken, finger food etc).
Gary had his fill with loads of meat for grilling While Candy and me took other stuff for the steamboat..Slather the hot pan with margerine and cook, cook, cook! The pan was very hot, so the meat was cook quite quickly...The steamboat (pot?) on the other end, took it's sweet time to boil....sigh..We had to wait quite a while for the steamboat food to cook, luckily there were some side snacks/ dishes we could eat while waiting..
Though food was abundant, I find the food quality just mediocre. The only thing I enjoyed was the bak kwa and lamb which I had loads.. But then again, it's RM18.80, what can I say? Guess this will be the place for very hungry-feeling carnivorous-dont mind the quality-average tasting food customers. Quite a mouthful eh? ;p
Restoran Talipon is located at Old Klang Road. Drive pass Pearl Point (on your right) until you reach the next traffic light. Turn right, drive on (road goes slightly uphill). You will see Restoran Talipon on your left, just before a traffic light junction.

Once upon a time when my metabolisme rate was sky-high (when there's still hope to grow taller), this was a fav major pig out place. And I believe the price was lower. Now, *sigh*.

I stopped going there since I found 2 dead flies buried beneath the piles of lamb and chicken there last year. Food was getting more lousy, service became worse, and price is getting higher. :-P

Sounded pretty okay till I read tankiasu's comment. Ugh...

But I like the concept though, esp the bakwa. What to do, born-and-bred carnivore here... ;)

expanding on tankiasu's comment - I once went to the one next to the LDP. Didn't eat there as I was turned off with the loads of flies hovering over the food.

I used to go to their branch in Kelana Jaya. Love the BBQ more than steamboat. Did you try the marinated Patin? So yummy especially when the fatty part being bbq-ed till crispy. Yummzzz. Since a long time I didn't visit that place cos Hubby said it's so hot and sweaty when dine there. Hmm..must drag him there one weekend..SOON.

tankiasu: omg!eeewww...yeah, food was just average/ below. as for service, it was ok for me coz it's buffet..didnt really need them to serve us that much..

kenny: you? carnivore? sure or not? ;p

wmw: yup, just opposite Kelana Jaya LRT

jackson: hehe, think this will be years later for me to visit this place again (unless i'm coerce!)

boo: really? i didnt go to the one at LDP coz it usually looks rather, erm, quiet...

teckiee: you've been? guess the food selection is same as the one at kuchai lama?

durianberry: guess lots went there to pig out and chat (while waiting for thier food to cook) for hours..yup, the bakwa is yummy..

jason: so, have you been to any of these?
