Jpot steamboat

First impression is that the restaurant is spacious. Visited here for a few times already and the most recent visit was made because i bought a groupon for weekday lunch. The pricing here is quite expensive and is not buffet style. However, the quality of the food is quite good. Well presented and looks clean... Some steamboat buffets could be quite disgusting, if you know what i mean. Tried their supreme broth, herbal, tomyum and bak kut teh... All are good. even the refill soup is good *thumbs up*. Some steamboats out there give you very diluted tasteless soup as refill and i hate it. My favorite is the jumbo pork balls. Very yummy! The only item on the menu that i would not order again is the cheese sausage. $1.20(iirc) and only 2 tiny pieces, and tastes very salty. The meats and seafood are all of decent quality. Vegetables are also properly washed. Overall, i would visit again... If in the mood for steamboat and hubby is willing to splurge. Hehe...

My last visit to JPot was almost 3 years ago, and I guess they must have done some minor revamp as the chairs were no longer the same. What I last remembered were the high-back sofa benches along the glass façade. However, these have since been replaced by orange cushioned seats

And gone are the days when we placed our orders manually with the staff as all tables were equipped with iPads. Yah, I don’t remember seeing these iPads on my previous visit. Which we felt was actually a pain in the neck as it was difficult getting the staff’s attention when we wanted to make some clarification about the set menus.

And yes, the only menu which we received in hardcopy was for the various set menus (pages 1, 2, 3) where the breakdown of the dishes was shown. To place orders for these set menus, one will also need to use the iPad.

And from the menu, we ordered:-

1) Menu D, $108 for 4 pax comprising of:-

(A) Soup (choice of 4 items) – We were each given our individual pots and we went with (clockwise, top left) fish head soup (additional $1), bak kut teh, JPOT superior broth and tom yum from the 9 flavours that were available. And all were pretty good although bak kut teh was not a very versatile soup base to be cooking ingredients like prawns as it altered its flavour.

(B) Spinach & mushroom

(C) Seafood & noodle combination platter – Live prawn, sliced toman fish, sliced squid, scallop, red chilli with fish paste, pork noodle, fish noodle.

Due to the (silly) 3000 characters limit, continue to read my review on other dishes here: PART2

3) Hand-made jumbo pork ball, $5 – I guess the presentation was probably more for its novelty. As it was big, we had to further divide it into smaller pieces to ensure the meat was cooked thoroughly. And because we had to divide the jumbo-sized ball, it caused the meat to sort of disintegrate. Stick to ordering the normal small-sized meat balls. At least one is assured of bouncy balls!

Other than being very full from ordering too many a-la carte items in addition to our set menu (haha), we enjoyed our lunch at JPot. The lack of human touch which we felt initially with the automatic ordering system proved not to be an issue as the staff consistently checked on us. They would regularly go on their rounds to top up our soup, or clear the empty dishes. Not topping up of drinks since these were free flow (after paying the respective prices) and self-service.

I liked that the recipes were pasted at the self-service counter for the dipping sauces. If not I normally have lots of problem trying to come up with a tasty concoction. Ha. And cause I was wearing a white skirt, I requested for an apron. I got to learn that aprons were available when the staff offered my brother one as he was wearing a white top. The lady was worried he would stain his shirt. Thumbs up for good service!

This is the 1st time here as the feedbacks were quite positive. We arrived around 4:30pm on Sunday. The staff who showed us our table informed us to finish our meal by 6pm so that they can served the dinner crowd. I was wondering what kind of request is this? I was a bit pissed by the request. But got over it soon as we wanted to order and try out the food here. We had ordered a plate of pork belly and we were served with something too fatty for our liking. We requested them to help to change to something less fatty. They refused to change and insisted that belly is that fatty. Food so so only. Overall my experience here was not a pleasant one and i will definitely not return here anymore. There are many steamboat restaurant in sg to choose from.

What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
