We ordered the Mongolian steamboat (RM25), which is written as “Little Sheep” on the menu.  Little Sheep is a huge Mongolian steamboat franchise originating from China, now with business in several countries, and is now synonymous with Mongolian steamboat.  At first glance, the red soup base seemed to be “mala” but it’s not.  It is milder, less numbing and much more gentle for my stomach.  The white soup base is a beautiful soup base, light textured yet so rich with Chinese herbs.

We took the sour plum juice (RM5) thinking that it can help us cool down after eating the steamboat.  While it did its job, I was disappointed that it tasted like over-diluted ribena instead of the sour plum I was expecting.

Lu Ding Ji works a little different from other restaurants.  Most restaurants specialize in one kind of cuisine, like Hakka, Sichuanese and so on.  At Lu Ding Ji, they carry speciality dishes from different cuisines, which I thought was kinda convenient because you get the best of each cuisine all under one roof.   Here’s more of Lu Ding Ji’s speciality item on the menu –  chicken in pig’s stomach (绝味猪肚鸡), from Guangzhou,

I loved Mongolian soup base for the steamboat.  All of the a la carte items we ordered were in copious amounts and most of it were at a reasonable price.  The only things I found pricey was the mushroom platter (RM25), the vegetables (RM15) and the so-called sour plum juice (RM5).  Some of the other signature dishes seemed to be rather expensive too on the menu, but I think Lu Ding Ji is still worth a shot for next time.
