Hot Pot @ Chuanxi Ba Zi, Sunway Velocity

Sunway Velocity Mall is a popular spot for many hot pot cuisines. Here to join the ever growing craze for Chinese hotpot, Chuanxi Bazi has brought the authentic taste of Sichuan to us. The flagship store located in Sunway Visio Tower stands at an impressive 3600 sq ft with three private rooms and the capacity to accommodate up to a hundred and fifty hungry guests. I visited their grand launch to check out what they have to offer. Old Chinese inspired interior design I tried t

Spice World Hot Pot, Clarke Quay

Despite the scorching weather here in Singapore, you’ll always find lots of people eating hot pot. Most of the big hot pot chains in Singapore even have a constant queue! That is no exception for Spice World Hot Pot in Clarke Quay. And as part of its first anniversary in Singapore, Spice World will be introducing eight new menu items and a fun dessert hot pot. Let’s start with the broths here at Spice World. We had their signature spicy butter mala soup, that comes in a shape

City Hot Pot @ One Raffles Place

Imagine enjoying a hearty hotpot meal while basking in the beautiful sunset view at Singapore's Central Business District (CBD). That's what you can expect at City Hot Pot Shabu Shabu. I haven't visited many hotpot restaurants around Singapore so I had no expectations stepping into City Hot Pot. As we got the City Hot Pot, the friendly wait staff recommend the Set B ($60.99) for us to try. It's a steal and more than enough food for 2. After we've gotten your choice of meat an

Teppan Kappou Kenji, Tanjong Pagar

When you think of good food in Tanjong Pagar, Japanese cuisine comes to mind. But Teppan Kappou Kenji wants to stand out from the rest with fresh seasonal ingredients directly important from Japan. The establishment is the brainchild of Chef Kenji Okumura, a master of Kaiseki dining with decades of experience. He honed his skills under the master chef at the illustrious Nadaman Japanese Restaurant in Nagoya Tokyu Hotel. We had the opportunity to try Chef Kenji’s 8 course Omak

Beauty In The Pot, Genting Skyavenue

Beauty in the Pot is finally in Malaysia and its first outlet is in Genting Skyavenue. It’s the perfect spot to open a hot pot place, of course, because of the cooling weather. Beauty in the Pot, Genting Skyavenue is pretty high in demand so make sure to call in advance to reserve your table. They’re known for their collagen pork broth, which is loosely touted to give you a better complexion. We’re not sure how much soup you’d have to drink to enjoy smoother skin but no matte

New ramen and shabu-shabu soup bases at Ramen Champion, Clarke Quay Central

Ramen champion is bringing some local and Thai flavours into its menu this season with the introduction of the Laksa Tonkotsu and Green Curry. Enjoy the Laksa Tonkotsu ($13.80++), a marriage between local and Japanese flavours with ramen noodles, black fungus spring onions, ajitama and pork belly cha shu. Thai food lovers will be excited to try the Green Curry ($14.80++). The full aroma of the soup is enlivened with lemongrass, garlic, ginger, and shallots. This was my prefer

Otaru Suisan, Bugis+

A new shabu-shabu joint popped up in Bugis+ and it has just unveiled its brand-new 90-minute shabu-shabu buffet promotion from $17.80 onwards (for adults)! Diners will be spoilt for choice here with their unique Japanese and Asian-inspires soup bases at affordable prices. We loved the Rich Tonktosu soup base, but this is just one of the eight different soup bases Otaru Suisan has to offer. The rest of the soup bases include the two new soups, Setouchi Lemon and Sapporo Curry,

The HotPot, Publika

Hotpot, or steamboat, is really one of my favourite things to have. It’s the ultimate comfort food. That’s why when I heard of The HotPot Publika, I had to try it! Disclaimer: It isn’t a buffet hotpot. So leave those expectations at the door. The HotPot is located at a quieter part of Publika (which is actually more accurately known as Solaris Dutamas). If you’re not familiar with the place, it might be hard to find it. But if you’re familiar with the place, it’s really near

Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodle, Singapore

I bet some of you have noticed that the weather here has been a bit chilly lately with it raining almost everyday. So what's the best thing to eat on a cold rainy evening? Hot pot, of course! Or steamboat, as we call it here. Put aside the usual China-style hot pot buffets as well as the expensive ones with super long queues, and check out Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodle, a unique hot pot joint with (I swear!) one of the best broths ever. I did some digging and found out that this p
