The Pioneer Steamboat in Singapore

Total Reviews: 147

Steamboats are everywhere now – Geylang, Chinatown, Tan Quee Lan, Kitchener Road. Hotpots are associated with winter season, but yet springing up in perpetual HOT summer Singapore.

Options are plenty, but quality (and hygience) may be otherwise. But Chong Qing Hotpot, a renowned pioneer in Singapore since 1993, still remains one of the most popular.

The buffet dinner is priced at $30.90++ during weekends. It’s almost double the price of those offered at nearby Bugis, but the added service and consistent quality makes the eating affair more worthwhile.

5 Ways to Enjoy Your Chong Qing Hotpot @ Suntec

1) Select 2 choices of soup: Ma-La, Faithful Chicken, or Preserved Sour Vegetable. My recommended are the first two.  To prevent my buds from getting too numb, I go for a 80% chicken broth/20% spicy combination.

2) Dip your thin sliced meat into the four different sauces: sesame seed base, sesame oil, sweet chilli and chilli with garlic for that additional kick.

3) To ease that buffet guilt, add lots of vegetables and mushroom (especially yummy soft Golden Mushroom) to balance that oily intake.

4) Save space for the complimentary one standard serving of Sliced Salmon, Fu Zhou Fish Balls, New Zealand Mussels, Sliced Squid with Abalone Sauce and Chicken Sausage (well, maybe you can leave this out.) The dishes came quite late after we are almost done eating!

5) Save MORE space for some fried items such as Meat & Chives Dumpling, Fried Buns and Cripsy Spring Roll which came at the end of the meal. Eat it before you call Surrender. You can give the Xiao Long Bao a miss if you mind the thick skin.

The meal came up close to $40 per person (pricey for a poor person like me). I did enjoy the experience though – an opportunity for good friends to gather and friendly service from aunties who can’t wait to stack up your table with plates of meat.

The Verdict

Hot pot, Hot soup, Hot food… but High price.

The Magic of ChongQing Hotpot @ Suntec City - Chinese Feasts would like to thank mr. daniel on his review that was published in 2008. But we would like to correct his 5 steps in eating Hotpot. The correct way as mentioned by our staff is the" three magical steps", First is the sauces served when eating hotpot, it allows the food to cool down before reaching the palate, and help enhance the taste of the dishes, Second, The delightful tid-bits served between meals allow the guest to rest their palates so as to enjoy their hot pot meal and the third step is the eight treasure tea served hot or cold which helps balance the ying and yang in the body after the Hot Pot meal.

We thought we give this expensive place should be good as it's highly recommended by one of my friend. Upoon walking into the restaurant, the heat was unbearable as there's tables of boiling hot steamboat & you can barely feel the aircon worse still the air inside is not ventilating. The lst straw was to find hair in the dumpling that we're eating when we told the waitress, she just simply take the plate away no apologise or any sort was make. Thats the one & last time i will step into that restaurant.

I went there a few times, the food variety is fairly huge although you may have to wait a bit longer if it is during the weekends. Overall i would say the place is not bad but i just find the price a bit too expensive for me.

This is my favourite Mala steamboat restaurant. It's Mala taste suit me well. I love the dip sauce too and it's Ba Bao tea, really nice to drink. Always went to the tanglin shop. And the service is good too and the boss is friendly.
