For family gatherings in the Northeast, consider this Muslim-owned steamboat joint at Punggol Ranch. Bring your appetites, because the Steamboat Buffet ($26 on weekdays, $29 on weekends) allows you free-flow access to fresh ingredients — the seafood is especially notable, with options like crayfish, plump prawns and dory fish. Be ready to snap those up, but thankfully, they often get refilled very efficiently. The steamboat pot comes with an attached grill, so you can mix things up by cooking marinated meats like black pepper beef and curry tandoori chicken. There's a selection of cooked food like chicken wings and rojak to keep you going while you wait for the food to cook, along with free-flow drinks. Pro tip: This place is packed on the weekends and they aren't always efficient with taking phone reservations. Plan this for a weekday instead, or come by really early on the weekend.
Avg Price: $30 per person
