On arrival, I was a little unsure since the ground level looked more a spot for high octane beverages, but the service staff were quick to attend and point me upstairs.

Unlike most hot pot joints, this is one classic signature stamped with a rich class of Beijing, exuding anything/ everything inspired from ancient Chinese royal dining etiquette. A mechanized automated self hearing ‘jing’ (井trans: well) seats within the table, while a dedicated concierge is stationed at the table to cook for you. Unless, otherwise excused from the table, the concierge shall see to the entire course of lunch/dinner.

The meal is started with a plate of fresh fruits, for it is believed in ancient times that the fruits trigger enzymes activity, and readies the palettes for the meal that follows. A young Shaoxin wine is poured for us in a ‘Jue’ (爵 trans: nobleman’s wine cup) to warm things up a little, while waiting for the jin (金trans: gold) & jun (菌trans: fungus) soup to come to a boil in a 鸳鸯yuan-yang pot.

The jun soup is a stock prepared using fungus assortment, has a bit of the woody fragrance. And the jin soup is a rich broth harnessed from bones & cartilage assortments.

Started things off each served with a bowl of the jun soup with evenly portioned fungus assortment, followed with a bowl of miniature fotiaoqiang 佛跳墙 , comprising of dried scallops, abalone,  sea cucumber & sharks fin substituted using fish maw. This arrangement calibrates the palettes, before the meal builds up to a crescendo.

Served next, prawn with turbot combination, and shrimp & meat ball on carrot. The meats are battered to pulp & neatly cut to shape for purpose of consistency of doneness, texture & taste. The soup base was good enough to lightly influence the taste, and I found very little need to use the sauce dips.

Then there was Kurobuta & Veal Tripe, lightly boiled to tender perfection. A light dab of chili oil adds a tingle to the taste. A sip of the shaoxin wine sweetens the experience too. The sliced snow fish & giant prawns were also cooked in good timing. The fish doesn’t flake, and the prawn shell was easily removed, without compromising the meat. A dab at the seafood sauce or a drip of shaoxin is also good.

The matsutake & golden mushroom combo was another delightful experience. I have to say mushrooms are after all, meatarian’s vegetables.

The garden greens comprising of lettuces & spinach, with in house handmade noodles, flavored & naturally colored (cabbage, carrots, spinach & eggs). The noodles are served together with the enriched soup, bringing a closure to the meal.

A light white fungus with longan & red dates dessert seals the meal in sweet bliss.

Possibly the only fine dining hot pot concept available in town, and it’s not everyday that one gets to experience a meal in the life of a blue blood brat.

Opened in March 2013, Cuisine Master Hot Pot (食神锅奉行)  is hailed from Beijing, China and was founded by Master Chef Zhong Li Wen, one of China's top 10 Chefs.

There is no ala carte or buffet menu, just pick from the 5 nine-course set menu that ranges from $78++ to 198++ per pax.

We have the $78++ set menu and the imperial experience started off with a refreshing fruit platter. On the side there was a trio of appertiser consists of Marinated TomatoesPeas and Black Fungus which one can nibble while waiting for the food to be cooked. The marinated tomatoes were a delight with its sweet and tangy flavours.

At Cuisine Master Hot Pot which is famed for its soup culture comes with only 2 types of soup base. The signature Golden Soup which is a rich concoction from "old hen" and "old duck", slow cooked over 10 hours for a creamy texture. The other is the Mushroom Soup which is a clear soup prepared with over 5 types of imported exotic mushrooms. All the soups are freshly prepared with all natural ingredients, with no additives or MSG added.

Before cooking the raw ingredients, we are each served a bowl of the soup to taste the original flavours before they are diluted by the impurities or got too rich after all the cooking. The clear Mushroom Soup was packed with earthy flavour that very comforting.
The Buddha Jumps over the Wall is cooked in the signature Golden Soup to showcase the flavourful soup. An impressive luscious bowl of soup with rich and creamy consistency.

I was delighted to see freshly made Shrimps and Pork Balls being served. I love the fact that chestnut was added to the pork balls giving it an extra crunchy bite.

Next up was vegetables and mushrooms. We have the Chinese Yam which has a lot of health benefits. We also have seasonal Matsutake Mushroom and Assorted Greens making it a balanced meal.

For the seafood, we had Prawn and Turbot Platter as stated in the $78++ set menu. However I doubt the fish is turbot, it looked more like grouper from its appearance and texture. The prawn and fish were cooked in the beautiful golden soup. Fresh and quality seafood that is always a joy for hot pot.

For meat we have the Kurobuta Pork and Beef. I thought they were too thinly sliced to be able to enjoy it to the fullest. While I enjoyed the succulent kurobuta pork, the beef was overcooked and tough for me.

Not to be missed is the Special Homemade Noodles that comes in 4 different colours. They are made from egg white (white), spinach (green), carrot (orange) and purple cabbage (purple). The delectable noodles were springy and had a nice bite to it.

Wrapping up the dinner, we have the refreshing White Fungus with Longan and Red Dates. It was a welcoming dessert that helped to cleanse the palate after all the rich flavours. Once again its all about healthy, well being and optimum digestion.

Ever wondered how it feels like to be served throughout the entire meal and your only job was to consume the food that has been placed in front of you? Was invited to Cuisine Master Hotpot and the experience was as such.

From the hot towel to wipe the hand, the already plated fruits before the meal, a cup of shaoxing wine to warm the tummy, a taste of the soup simmered for long hours, each and every individual items cooked for us and delivered onto our plate. Gosh, the service staff was forever busy while we just sat there and waited to be served. Felt a bit of luxury.

Had the $78 per pax set, and I'm guessing the most premium item would be the mini buddha jump over the wall (dried baby abalone, fish maw and dried scallops). Drink as much as you can of the golden soup at the beginning. Recommended.

Also enjoyed the matsutake mushrooms, prawns and the beef. Am quite taken with the beautiful arrangements of the greens. So pretty looking!

Thank you to the two gentlemen who took care of the cooking and serving. Diners can practically ask them anything such as the origins of the shop, the sauce used, nutrients of the food that we're eating etc.
