Also tried to XLB from this stall. The dumpling skin had a relatively good texture and thickness, while the filling was of good portion. I did wish that it was more flavourful and juicier. The price does make the shortcomings easier to overlook, but I’d prefer DTF XLB over this.

That being said, the chilli oil dumplings remain unbeatable in my heart. Please recommend me other delicious hong you cha shou places for me to expand my horizons!🥹

After all that hong you cha shou, I have finally found space in my stomach to get the bowl of beef noodles as well. I enjoyed the slight sourness of the soup and the spice from the chilli oil. I did think that the soup was a bit on the lighter side and could’ve been just a notch stronger in flavour. But the qq noodles were on point, as always.

Very unorthodox mala here… it isn’t the numbing, spicy mala you’d find everywhere. While still carrying that tinge of numbness, it was on the saltier side, almost that of indomie Mee goreng flavour!? Perhaps it was just heavy on the msg, but I wouldn’t think I’d call this mala.

I really went all the way to Yishun for this but I’m glad it didn’t disappoint! The Bak Kut teh here had more of a peppery tinge, which I personally prefer. The pork ribs weren’t as tender, but they weren’t too dry either. One of their popular staples, the dry fried mee sua, was an interesting pair along with the soup. Fried with dark sauce, the mee sua was on the sweeter side — perfect for people who love sweet and savoury flavours coming together. While a great alternative, I am personally still a fan of white rice together with my Bak Kut teh😅 would definitely return try their fried porridge though!

Loved the idea of how happy pot has their mini pots so affordably priced. Went for the mala broth which really packed a punch with its numbing spiciness. A decent amount of ingredients came with this set — the choice of chicken/pork/beef together with other classics like crab sticks. Of course, you could choose to add on ingredients if you desire. But this is definitely a place to consider if you’re going solo and looking for a warm, comforting, hotpot fix.

Delibowl is a halal chain which prides themselves on serving Sichuan delicacies, a fare quite often difficult to find without pork and lard. With their Express chain, it aims to serve it fast-food style, where people can grab a quick fix of Chinese food when needed. This Mapo tofu rice really packed a punch, and a good option if you’re craving something spicy. I thought it was pretty decent, nothing overwhelming but it did deliver its job to make a simple Mapo tofu meal.

City pot serves affordable hot pot sets that come in both individual and sharing pots. Went for the super value set meal that was enough for 2 pax. And because I was craving for something comforting and spicy so I went for their laksa broth. While expectedly the laksa broth is not as good as what you’d get in hawker centres, I thought that how the laksa broth was done for the purposes of a steamboat was decently right. The texture was on the thinner side while still slightly creamy with a bit of spice. If you don’t think it’s spicy enough, you can add chilli from the condiments section for the added punch. A good option for people who like to have their own mini pots, while still sharing a platter of meat for your friends!

Lau Wang Claypot delights has become one of my go-tos for a simple weekday dinner, especially when their food is seemingly reminiscent of home cooked fare. Most of their food, served in a claypot, always comes piping hot, ensuring real comfort that warms your soul. The traditional nyonya chap chye priced affordably at $6.30 comes in great portion, with vegetables stewed til soft. I loved the slightly sourish taste of nyonya chap chye, or what some might describe as a “siap siap” taste, which was well delivered. I’d recommend getting this especially if you’d like a vegetable dish to pair with your food!

Chicken herbal soup is comforting and refreshing, but is mild and light on the herbal side. From its clear broth, don’t expect the thicker, and more herbaceous soup you’d find in emperor herbal chicken soup. But this warm soup is enough to satiate you on a cold day.

Sambal seafood here is extremely worth it with the generous portion of ingredients — sotong, prawns, and fish. The sauciness goes amazing with plain white rice and the spiciness really packs a punch🥵

2 rolls of ngoh hiang for $6 is considerably a decent price point. It was, however, on the softer, oilier, and mushier side. While full of minced meat, I was hoping for more of the chestnut crunch in each mouthful.

If you are too spoilt for choice and are looking for an option that is good for groups and enough to satiate everyone together with all the satay and grilled prawns you are about to order, you can consider Hotpot stall at Lau Pa Sat. I know, I know, it’s weird… but for some reason, the vibes at Lau Pa Sat were pretty fitting for an outdoor hotpot sesh.
A platter of different meats — chicken, pork, and beef, vegetables and fish paste ingredients given as part of the hotpot set. An additional $5 was required for the tonkotsu broth which deserves a shoutout because it was not too creamy for hotpot and yet slightly sweet. The flavour of the pork broth was apparent but light on the palate as well. Apart from the hotpot sharing sets, they also have individual hotpot sets at less than $10, which is honestly a steal and looks both cute and fun to it. To outdo themselves they also have mookata! So rest assured you have more than one options to satisfy any cravings you might have. If all else fails, remember that you’re surrounded by alternative options here.
