Upot Singapore is where to go for one of the hottest new trends to come onto the local food scene: the conveyer hot pot. That’s right folks, just when you thought eating hot pot couldn’t get any more fun, this Taiwanese restaurant in Singapore went and took things to an entirely new level. Perfect for big groups, an experience at this Paya Lebar restaurant is best enjoyed with friends or family (so you can sample a bit of everything). You’ll find the restaurant at SingPost Centre along Eunos Road, just steps from the MRT station of the same name. Reservations are recommended at Upot, as it can get very busy indeed.
One thing’s for sure, there’s no other place in Singapore like Paya Lebar’s Upot. Inspired by the trendy conveyor-belt hot pot restaurants in Taiwan, this Singapore restaurant has garnered a lot of attention since it began. With nearly 300 different dishes – with a third of them available to choose from at any given time – and up to eight hotpot bases, you’ll be spoilt for choice when dining at Upot. Its location right at Paya Lebar station means it’s also easy to reach, so it’s even more of a reason to swing by Upot regularly.
Visiting Upot is kind of like visiting an amusement park for food. Well, not really, but it’s pretty awesome. First, select the base for your hotpot – choose from soups with flavours like wild mushroom, tomato, Thai tom yum and Taiwanese herbal pork – and prepare yourself for a whole lot of flavour. The conveyor belt works just like those you’ll find in some local sushi restaurants. Plate colours correspond to certain prices, so just grab whatever you want off the belt and have at it. At the end of your meal, one of the passionate Upot staff members will scan your stack of plates and calculate your total. High tech, right? So you know what you need to do next – book a table and head to this futuristic restaurant at SingPost Centre down Eunos Road.
We had an interesting dining experience at Upot. It was definitely an unique way to enjoy hotpot. I shall recommend it to my family and friends.
The food at upot is cheap and decent :) The mushroom soup is really good and you're more than welcomed to top it up with more mushrooms from items along the conveyor belt. No need to order and wait for the hot pot ingredients to arrive as well :)
Went back for the second time. Soup base was just as good, food was still quite fresh despite it being the end of the day. Staff were attentive and helpful.
