Two Pesos Malaysia (Taiwan Mini Steamboat) at SS2, Petaling Jaya

Two Pesos 两披索靓锅 Taiwan Mini Steamboat at SS2, Petaling Jaya

Two Pesos 两披索靓锅 is a Taiwan Mini steamboat / hot pot restaurant at SS2, Petaling Jaya. We noticed this restaurant when we went to buy Chatime which is next to it and it has since became our favourite place for a steamboat dinner that is nice and not expensive. This steamboat / hot pot place is very different from our local steamboat restaurants as it offers many kinds of different soups and comes in mini personal pot. According to the website. the soups at Two Pesos are invented by a golden awards winning chef, Ben Chen and his team.

Two Pesos is originated from Taiwan. You can read more about its story here. Basically the owner and his wife met in Boracay and fall in love. Both of them have the passion of making food and beverages that can make people happy. So they decided to start this F&B business. The owner saw his Philippines coins during the shop name brainstorming and decided to name the business as Two Pesos. Pesos is the official currency of the Philippines. Enough with the history, let me continue with the steamboat / hot pot photos.

Two Pesos’ Mini Hot Pots

Two Pesos Malaysia SS2
Every table in Two Pesos has 4 gas cookers. Here is an overview of our table with all our hot pot sets. This time I ordered the Mongolian Herbs Pot while laupoh ordered her Hello Kitty Lemon Seafood Pot. Our dinner gang ordered Two Pesos’ Original Classic Pot.

Two Pesos' Lemon Seafood Pot
Two Pesos’ Lemon Seafood Pot, RM 16. If you ask the waiter, he will tell you the soup tasted like tom yam but not spicy. If you like sourness, this pot of steamboat is for you. I’m not sure why it uses Hello Kitty pot though. Can anyone tell me what is the connection between lemon or sourness with Hello Kitty? Anyway it is very delicious and mix well with the ingredients.

Two Pesos Malaysia SS2's Mongolian Herbs Pot
My Mongolian Herbs Pot, RM 15.50. The soup has special herbs from Mongolian, I guess. The taste is very unique and mix well with my steamboat ingredients. As you can see in this photo, I chose rice and pork slices for my set. You can choose from either pork, lamb or beef slices. For the carbohydrate, you can choose rice, yee mee or mee hoon. This is also different from other steamboat restaurant as they don’t normally has rice.

Two Pesos' Original Classic Pot
Original Classic Pot with beef slices, RM 11. This is the cheapest set at Two Pesos but you still get quite a lot of ingredients as you can see here. All the fresh ingredients are arranged nicely for you and has very nice presentation.

  1. I just visit 2 pesos, SS2 last sunday, feel more and more disappointed each time i go, the using ingredients is more and more lesser and not fresh, portion become more and more smaller, but the price is getting more and more expensive. And the beverage, I order my favorite winter melon, when I taste it 1st mouth, I think I’m drinking mineral water, whole cup filling with ice only.. What the xxxx… I still remember 1st time I visit here before execute GST, the portion is great and fresh, got a lot of ingredients inside, the winter melon not too sweet but at least not like mineral water, the price is cheap and reasonable, now? (shake head)
