Malaysians sure do love their steamboat restaurants, and Lava Steamboat over at Citta Mall serves Thai-style hot pot that's pork-free. Besides steamboat, the restaurant also has signatures such as sizzling Hokkien mee, caviar egg seafood fried rice and sweet and sour crab, so there's more to expect than just the name implies.
