The Singapore steamboat craze shows no sign of, well, running out of steam yet. It seems like a hip, new phenomenon, but it’s actually been thriving for a long time. One of the original steamboat operators in Singapore is Mini Steamboat Delight, who’ve been steaming up a storm along Tanjong Katong Road for thirty years. Foodies in the know have long flocked to this special steamboat restaurant, where a huge range of dishes meet Mini Steamboat Delight’s homemade sauces and stocks.
If you haven’t yet encountered steamboat dining in Singapore, you’ve either been living under a rock or not living in Singapore whatsoever. If you do live in Singapore and haven’t done that steamboat thing all your hip and self-satisfied foodie friends are muttering about, then why not go to the origin of all things steamboat along Tanjong Katong Road. Mini Steamboat Delight is the place, and it’s been serving the steamboat experience to generations of foodies for thirty years!
The concept behind steamboat is simple. A hot pot of variously flavoured broth is kept simmering in the center of diners’ tables, to which various ingredients are added and cooked according to taste. Thin slices of meat and chunks of seafood, vegetables and mushrooms, wontons and dumplings, are common delicacies subjected to the steamboat treatment. At Mini Steamboat Delight down Tanjong Katong Road, the tradition is upheld. Many fans of this Singapore steamboat veteran say, however, that it’s Mini Steamboat Delight’s homemade red sauce that does it for then, not to mention the friendly atmosphere of this cosy venue, which promises to keep diners happy for years to come.
Yummy yummy chilli and love love the Tom yum! Have been patronising them for more than 20 years!!! Great place for steamboat at affordable prices!
Reasonably priced, great service and nice quality food. Better to go in a big group to enjoy more variety.
The food is still as good as last time. Keep it up!
Food and ambience is okay. Will come again for casual dining
