Nice place in town for healthy and soupy stuff

Wild mushrooms broth used for both steamboat buffet and paper pot, was a tad bland initially but became better as the ingredients were cooked in it. My choice of Pork Paper Pot Set came with a bowl of rice, a side of green salad and fresh fruit – a slice of sweet and juicy watermelon. Lean and tender meat was well-balanced by the beancurd, leafy greens such as tang-o as well as different types of mushrooms including enoki and shiitake. Not just in terms of taste and texture, but also nutrition so the soupy meal was healthy too. See full review and pictures at http://live2eatdottravel.blogspot.sg/2013/12/the-mushroom-pot.html.

overpriced to the max!

General miscellaneous food at exorbitant prices. I'm expecting my p*** to come out gold. The food itself is nothing special, average at best. Staff get your orders wrong and keep giving you things you don't actually want. For 40 bucks I might as well head to a much fancier buffet with real actual quality

Mushroom hi-tea buffet

Years ago I missed the opportunity to dine here at a gathering and have been curious about it ever since. So when K didn’t object to eating mushrooms (one of my favorite veggie), mushrooms and more mushrooms, I suggested we try the hi-tea buffet.

We skipped the more filling dishes like rice and noodles and ordered mostly from the starters and house specials.

开胃小菜 (starters):

泰式野生菇 (wild mushrooms with thai spices)

- refreshing and not overly spicy.

腐皮野菌卷 (beancurd mushroom roll)

- strong earthy flavor due to the mushrooms, which went well with thai-style sweet and sour sauce.

如意蛋卷 (spinach egg roll)

- extremely crunchy, light and clean-tasting.

特色小吃 (house specials):

蜜桃猴头菇 (monkey head mushrooms in house dressing)

- served with crushed walnuts in a mayo-based dressing tinged with sweetness, the deep-fried mushrooms were delectably crispy.

野生怡灵菌炒黑椒猪肉 (black pepper sliced pork with c.v. mushrooms)

- black pepper wasn’t overpowering and pork slices were tender, but there’s too little mushrooms to make any impact on the dish.

宫保猴头菇 (szechuan-style monkey head mushrooms)

- served with crushed cashew nuts, the crispy mushrooms didn’t pack much heat and flavors were weak.

野菌酿腐皮 (crispy beancurd roll)

- topped with a dollop of ketchup, the deep-fried beancurd skin was crispy and filling was generous with succulent mushrooms. rather moreish so we had two servings.

芥末花枝 (crispy squid with wasabi sauce)

- wasabi sauce was competent, batter was crispy but too bad the squid was rubbery.

虾春卷 (shrimp spring roll)

- shells were ultra crunchy though the shrimps were unremarkable.

饭、面 (rice & noodles):

黄金馒头 (fried buns)

- soft fluffy buns with a slightly crispy crust accompanied with condensed milk.

是日甜品 (dessert of the day):

海底椰 (sea coconut)

- a tad sweet and the fruit wasn’t too firm.

We weren't asked if we wanted tea and no one offered us water but staff were efficient at taking and delivering orders.

Note: Hi-tea buffet is available 3-5pm daily. Price for weekday is $13.90 while weekend is $16.90. No walk-ins (as indicated on website). Wet towel costs additional $0.30.
