A place for steamboat

A great place for steamboat. Ambience is good, environment brightly lit with natural sunlight. The interior deco gives a very clean and comfy feeling

Food is not bad especially the minced meat on bamboo stick. after cooking, it taste juicy with the freshness of the ingredients, flavorful and its fun to do your own meatballs as you scrap ido into the pot from the bamboo holder. 

Other items com quite common steamboat items. I think what differentiated them is their soup base which is quite tasty and savory. One last thing, I love theicondiment to counter as you can mix and match your own sauces and they have a lot of variety, the service staff was also very helpful in sharing some of their special concoction. Good service.

Jpot

Out of curiosity, i wanna try out this new restaurant. I came to this restaurant twice. 

It is a must to reserve before you come. If not, you may need to wait for 1 hour.
There do have indoor and outdoor setting. 

Prepare to sit outdoor if you dint book the place in advance.

There have many types of soups like:
· JPOT Superior Broth
· Bak Kut Teh
· Herbal
· Laksa
· Silky Porridge
· Tom Yum
· Vegetarian 

You can get to choose what side dishes you want to have. 
Think before you order as the portions are quite alot for me. 
You can self make your own sauce too!
Last but not least, you wont regret coming here!

Great Hotpot Place!

Pot is a  pretty good steamboat restaurant! The one at VivoCity is usually pretty crowded though, so its best to make a reservation, especially on the weekends. JPot offers a range of different soup bases, of which I have tried multiple, and I have yet to be dissapointed by any so far! They have a pretty extensive range of seafood and noodles as well, and all are very satisfying. Great place to check out if you want a nice steamboat with the family!

A great place to have steamboat

I was first introduced to this place by my boyfriend. The place has good food and great ambience. Though you should fix an appointment before going down as there are typically queue. They have a station where you can create your own sauce. Everything is good here. My favourite is their fried fish skin and fish noodles. They have quite a number of broth you can choose from and a wide variety of ingredients. I love mushrooms and hence I love it here. They have a wide variety of mushrooms for you to choose from.

JPOT, part of the Jumbo Group, was founded in 2009 and in my opinion, is one of the best steamboat restaurants in Singapore. Even though Hai Di Lao service standards and frills are absent, service is nonetheless polite and efficient and the food standards are comparable.

JPOT employs the use of technology to speed things up and free staff for other tasks. When you arrive, get your queue number from an automated machine. A wait staff will lead you to your table once your number appears on the screen. Upon seated, you can proceed to browse and order from the electronic menu on the iPad affixed to each table. The system will calculate the total spending (excluding GST and service charge) which we find helpful to curb overspending due to over-zealous ordering.

Condiments are displayed a la buffet style and include chilli padi, fried garlic, fresh garlic, ground peanut, roasted sesame, chilli oil, garlic oil, sha cha sauce, sesame oil, sesame peanut sauce, garlic chilli sauce, soya sauce, Chinese parsley, spring onion and leek.

What we like about Jpot is how hygienic everything is- individual pots and thongs are provided for each diner. Unlike large sharing pots where you can opt for 2 soup bases, at JPOT, you only get one. However, with individual pots, you have total control, and do not have to coordinate cooking times with your dining companions. Soup base choices include Superior broth, herbal bak ku teh, silky porridge, laksa, tom yam and vegetarian. I hope that they’ll have Mala soon!

The quality of the soup bases are excellent, and the ingredients sparkling fresh. I had the Herbal broth ($5.80), a calming, comforting soup with layered flavors. It didn’t take long for the food to arrive; we had Seaweed ($2.50) and Tang-O ($4.80).

Fishballs ($5), Sliced Toman Fish ($7.80), Vermicelli ($2) and Sea Cucumber ($9.80).

Grain-Fed Ribeye ($12.80) and Prawns ($10.80) deshelled and deveined for convenience.

Fried items and dim sums are also available to give your palate a break from hotpot food. Spinach Beancurd ($4.80) and Fried Shrimp Dumpling ($5.80) never fail to grace our table when we are at JPOT.

Not only does JPOT have a wide variety of offerings, the food is utterly scrumptious too! We could eat here again and again, without getting tired of it. To stretch your dollar, go for the set lunches which start from an incredible value-for-money $16.80++. The Vivocity outlet is particularly crowded on weekends, hence do make reservations well in advance!

Horrible place

Absolutely no value for money. One of the worst restaurants I've been to. Spent almost $200 but got less than 10 pieces of meat. Furthermore, the slices of meat are extremely thin and have to be shared within a family of four?! This is atrocious. Ordered a "set meal" for 4, well, the amount of vegetables they gave can feed a family of four but the amount of meat can barely fill a person and I have to pay almost $200?!?! I strongly discourage anyone to eat here, worst experience ever in a restaurant. honestly, I would rather go to a hawker center, or maybe, just buy veggies from a supermarket and dip them in hot water. DONT EVER DINE AT JPOT!
