It was our 4th anniversary, we were talking about where to go for dinner for only 2 of us, my hubby likes China hot-spicy hot pot/steamboat, we actually wanted to go Clarke Quay, can walk walk there after dinner, but I suddenly remembered the Auntie Lucy's advertisment on Channel 8, hence decided to have a try but did not check the review online. On the way, I checked the actual address and made a call to confirm where the shop is now. When we reached there, Owen road, a very quiet street, a few uncles were outside at the shop dringking tea, looks like food court type of feeling, and we were the first customer at the day, later 8 pax family came, that's all for that night. The conveyor belt is something fun but the food is just not OK, fresh meat only provided mutton and beef, no port belly, we did not satisfy the 3 kinds of soup too, pickle soup, tamato, hot-spicy, we did not even touch the tamato soup, the pickle sour soup can drink, hot-spicy (mala) is not too our taste at all, we had to add some chilli padi, chinese spice (hua jiao), plus some chilli paste, after cooking for a while, the soup taste bitter, I talked to the waitress lady, she says “不可能吧？not possible the soup become bitter‘, my husband then added some fish sauce, light soya sauce...the watermelon was even not fresh at all, the skin goes rotten, sigh...I definitely throw out even I happen to store watermelon until like that, we finished our dinner there, full but not satified. Good points, ambience is OK, black duck HUBEI ZHOU HEI YA is good, the chef cooked sour-sweet fish for us (3 tables only), beef/mutton were fresh but nothing else. Somemore we paid S$25 per pax plus 7% GST, plus 10% service charge, the most expensive HOT POT we eat ever, really a bad choce made by me. That is why I titled 1st and last time to go Wuhan Steamboat City
. That is maybe why they moved out from the Central clarke quay to quiet Owen road.
