Steamboat


Chinese-style hotpot, eaten communally. Side dishes of raw meats(chicken, pork, beef, liver, minced balls), fish, squid(sotong) and vegetables are cooked by dipping into the hotpot which is kept simmering at a boiling temperature. The best part of the steamboat meal is savouring the soup after all the meats and vegetables have been cooked and eaten. It is at this time that the soup is at its richest and tastiest !

Although I've known about this hotpot buffet shop and it's competitor-neighbours for some time, my friends and I finally made it here for dinner after the recent IT Show (Mar 2007) at Suntec. I was pleasantly surprised to find the quality of food and service to be quite excellent (note that this was a Thursday and we arrived at close to 9pm).
We went for the medium-spicy chilli soup on 1/2 the pot and chicken broth soup in the other half. The chilli mala soup (麻辣汤) was great and I liked the chicken soup too. The freshness of the meats and seafood was pretty obvious. The large flower crabs and juicy prawns were a delight, though my personal favourites were the thin-sliced meats - mutton, beef, pork - which were not over-marinated and went well with the mala soup. Also, this shop offers about 7 or 8 types of dip sauces - sesame oil, peanut, fermented beancurd, soya sauce - nice ! yumz !
All this for $15 flat ! Finally the most incredible thing I saw here - and this is something I've not seen in Singapore for a while - is that the shop workers were actually generously topping up the food at 10pm+ (officially their closing time) ! If you know of a place that beats this for value & quality, let me know !

This steamboat stall at this old hawker centre serves range of usual steamboat fare - prawns, fish head meat, tofu, pig liver, beef, chicken, enoki mushrooms(the Chinese call them golden needle mushrooms, 金针菇) and vegetables - and comes with a small pot of satay sauce dip. However, be warned that everything here has very light, if any, seasoning. The soup (and the satay) is quite bland. Then again, the fact that the stall dares keep the seasoning light, does indicate its confidence in the freshness of the food, and you can be sure that they've skipped the MSG and tongue-numbing salt/chilli sauces.

*Happy Steamboat* I've found

*Happy Steamboat*

I've found a new steamboat place at Sempang Bedok (At Shop & Save Supermarket). They serve 2 base soup, (chicken & tom yum) both unique and tasty.

Their handmake meatballs, thin-sliced beef and pork are tasty (Steamboat & BBQ) and able to make me crave for more.

Their seafoods are fresh especially their prawns are extremely fresh and crunchy!

Delicious in-house chilli sauce go well with all their dishes!

They even import Japanese Wok for BBQ! Thumbs UP!

Really recommendable!

Gd food at economical price!

I wish I have photos to post it all!
