This is one of the many chains of steamboat in China which is very popular but affordable at the same time. Tried it sometime late last year and it was really good. Didn’t snap pics of simple stuff like potatoes and radishes. Think you can figure it out. ;P Check it out.
Rating: 5/5. Service is not bad and food is good.
Taste: Really tasty!
Price: See last pic.
RTE: Most likely… when I have company. you can’t do streamboat alone! 🙂
Location: 福田区八卦一路工业区. Tell the cab driver Xiao Fei Yang, they will know what to look out for.
When we talk about steamboat, many will talk about the influx of steamboat shops that is crowding out Liang Seah St/Beach Rd/Tan Quee Lan St area. So you will be wondering which one is good? I’ve checked out a few before, 2 of which always advertise on TV… found out that they are not as good as what they claimed to be… especially the one that we have to pay for the soup stock per pax and the other one which claims to have not MSG in their soups… all bullshit and many hidden costs.
So I was checking out this place called Golden Chopsticks along Tan Quee Lan St with some music mates… or rather those who actually bothered to meet up or reply an invitation sent weeks before. I called up for reservations and realised that the place on Sat is really crowded and hot. Literally hot too… be prepared to sweat like mad when you are there. But overall, the food was alright for the price they stated on their website (http://www.goldenchopsticks.com.sg) with no hidden costs or +++. Free flow desserts, ice-cream and drinks. Best of all, they have skewered BBQ stuff which you find in China free flow too! Check out their website to see the stuff they offer… don’t expect the lady in pink on the home page to be there… I didn’t see her there… ;P
Taste: Most important is the soup base. It’s quite nice for all the different kinds of base.
Price: $19.80 nett per pax on weekends
RTE: Maybe when I’m back in Singapore. Now in Shenzhen, there’s a super power ma la hot pot chain of restaurants… will feature it when I go visit them.
Finally!!! I had the chance to visit this famous canteen located in our Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU). One of the pretty famous stall among the students is this Louisiana Western stall. So without wasting time, I got hold of a friend to bring me there as she is working there. Hence once we reached that place, we placed our orders immediately. 🙂
Taste: Very nice and a lot better than most western food stalls that I have came across.
Portion: Very good for the prices we paid.
Price: $6.50 for my mixed grill hot plate (most expensive already) and $4.30 for the Grilled Fish
RTE: If I’m in the NTU vicinity, I will definitely return to eat!
