Hotpot Heroes, Katong
The team behind this Tanjong Katong Road restaurant in Katong are truly heroes. They whip up some of the very best hotpot around and they do it with a smile. The decor is cool, the portions are huge and the tomato broth is so tasty it keeps us coming back time and time again!Book now
Hai Xian Lao
If hotpot fusion is what you love, Hai Xian Lao is the place for you. Combining different elements from a range of cuisines with spectacular results, the laksa base has to be one of our favourites at this popular Dhoby Ghaut restaurant. What’s more, the seafood offering includes Alaskan king crab, fresh oysters, green mussels and bamboo clams. How could you say no?!
Beauty In The Pot Centrepoint
Beauty In The Pot focuses on the Chinese philosophy of yin and yang, associating itself with balance and good health. One of the reasons we love this Orchard Road spot is because you can choose from over a hundred different items to cook in any of the six soup base options. Spice lovers will be delighted to learn that you can also choose between three levels of spiciness for your soup. Perfect.Book now
Shi Jian Hotpot JCUBE
Shi Jian Hotpot JCUBE really ain’t messing around when it comes to serving steamboats in Singapore. Situated in Jurong East, we strongly advise you to try the mala-style, black chicken herbal and the preserved vegetable when dining at Shi Jian Hotpot JCUBE. Just make sure you order some of the Shi Jian Singapore scallops to really seal the deal. You won’t be disappointed.
Whether you choose a single soup base (全锅) or do the half-and-half thing (鸳鸯锅), they cost the same.. & of course, the soups are refillable. We went with the latter because variety is the spice of life: Pig Bone Soup 上汤大骨 & Red Oil Spicy 锅红油麻辣锅. On the menu, there are 3 levels of spicy (we went with level 1 because I am humji), but off the menu, there's a level 4 & 5…. Try it if you dare. 😲 🔥
Upot Paya Lebar takes the Singapore hotpot scene up a notch with the conveyor belt hotpot of your dreams. Working on the sushi train model, all you have to do is select your base (we LOVE the Taiwanese herbal pork) and then as fillings you fancy zoom past, just grab them off the conveyor belt. Fun, efficient and totally delicious!Book now
City Hotpot Shabu Shabu
Whether you fancy meat, veggie or seafood, you can be sure that your eyes will widen in disbelief at the amount of choice you have at City Hotpot Shabu Shabu. One of our favourite bases has to be the herbal chicken soup filled with Wagyu beef and crispy pork belly.
