The restaurant serves a wide variety of fresh ingredients similar to their popular concept Beauty In The Pot, but without the Shark Cartilage soup. Orders are taken via the tablet, many items are available in half or full portion as well.
The soup bases are reasonably priced at $3.50++ to $9.80++ per pot. However, the Ala carte ingredients aren't cheap and could quickly add up to an expensive bill. Try to order half portions and re-order extras if serving is small. Or alternatively, go during off peak hours (Mon - Fri, 3pm - 5pm) to enjoy the Tea Time Indulgence 50% discount on ingredients (excl. soups, drinks & condiments).
Condiments are DIY mix-your-own-sauce concept, the current trend for many steamboat places. There is a $2++ charge per head for the condiments. Ice water is also chargeable at $0.30++ per pax and it's refillable.
The individual hotpots were served in glistening golden pot-holders. The servers will first fire up the pots with a blow torch, then mini pots of soups will be placed over the fire.
|Teochew soup $3.50++ & Tomato Sweet Corn soup $3.50++|
The soups were really flavorful on its own and the flavor intensifies after cooking a myriad of ingredients in it. When it becomes really salty, it's time to ask for soup refills to dilute the taste.
|Fresh Sea Prawns $22++|
|Lotus Roots (Half) $2.50++, Dace Fish Balls (Half) $4++, Assorted Balls platter $11++ & Shrimp Dumplings (Half) $6++|
|Cuttlefish Paste $10++ & Ebiko Prawn Paste $12++|
|Pork Belly slices $14++|
|Ramen $2.70++ & Tianjin Cabbage (Half) $3++|
|Sweet Corn (Half) $3++ & Winter Melon slices (Half) $2++|
The ingredients are not only fresh but of high quality. My fave are the handmade seafood pastes, the cuttlefish paste was super springy and prawn paste utterly crunchy...amazingly good! The shrimp dumplings are must order as well. Basically, everything we ordered was great, period.
With the 50% discount on ingredients, our original $136 bill was reduced to $74 only, very worth it! We will definitely be back for more steamboat fix as long as the tea time promo is still on. Having said that, during non promo hours, you do enjoy better service. Serving staffs would offer aprons, plastic covers for smartphones and prawn peeling service etc. like at HDL. Overall, it is a great place to go to for good quality steamboat meal, just need to plan your visit according to your budget.
