Steamboat Buffet
Review (14)
HotPot Culture located at the top floor of Marina Square offers $8.80++ for a porridge lunch buffet with air-con and up to 24 dishes that you can choose from! This porridge buffet that HotPot Culture offers reminds me of a hotel breakfast buffet, with lots of random hits and misses as usual... those misses are the ones you'd wished someone warn you about, the hits come often as surprising as paintball attacks.A brief introduction: the dishes are Singaporean and China-based, with Sichuan pickled vegetables and also carrot cake. There is rice, mantous and porridge for your taking to reach your carbohydrates intake. On the other side, there is green bean soup and orange slices for dessert. They also serve homemade barley too.The usual porridge condiments like preserved vegetables, salted eggs, ikan bilis with peanuts, braised pork belly and beancurd are available too.Observing that most of the service staff had a strong China accent, I would think that the Singaporean dishes might end up like the "Singapore corner" in most overseas hotel buffets. I was pleasantly surprised that the carrot cake, char kway teow, beehoon, and the fried rice were wonderfully done up, albeit a little strong on the flavours. On the other hand, there were some filler dishes that seemed rather skimpy on effort such as the spicy chicken sausage and spicy tofu which tasted suspiciously similar in terms of its sauce.The supposed star of the buffet - the porridge - was miserably rice belatedly mixed with water, and was tasteless at best. While I kind of liked their rendition of sweet green bean soup with rice, Ave didn't think well of it. It's strange but in a good way. The homemade barley is passable though not spectacular.Overall, HotPot Culture has rather attentive service and a relatively peaceful environment even during the lunch crowd. Don't expect too much for the food quality, though it does makes for a filling and extremely value-for-money lunch. continue reading

Finally a day to meet up with friends , went to marina square . went for steamboat buffet there about 24 selection to choose frombut before that we have to choose the soup base . there 7 different kinds of soup base to choose fromChicken SoupHot & Spicy SoupFish SoupKim chi SoupVegetarian SoupHerbal SoupMa La Soup the great thing also it is a big variety of selection to choose from and we can choose what soup base we want and it is individual selection. anyway the steamboat buffet cost like about $18.80 but after GST and plus plus charges each of us pay around $21 dollars. the best thing i like is individual steamboat set , we can put whatever we want and we do not have to share with each another. hence if everyone of us ordered the different soup base we can try each other ones. for more details you can go to : http://www.hotpotculture.com/as on that day i prefer to have some light meal therefore i ordered herbal soup and with Mi Fen and vegetable ;) continue reading

Come to a same sentiment when deciding where to eat, we finally had our dinner at HotPot Culture. Because of the rainy day outside, I missed something soupy. Enjoying the exciting Chinese-style Steamboat Buffet, there were quite extensive choices for soup bases and pot boiling items. Restaurant was clean and comfy, we were served immediately upon arrival.Taking Tom Yum soup, I want to tantalize my taste buds for instant. Food was fine, mostly of them were fresh meat and veggies. Self-service basis, eat all we can, drink was free-flow. Ala-carte menu was available also, we prefer buffet version. For adult was $20.80 as we visited on weekend, the price subjected to GST and service charge. Heart-warming meal, we were satisfied and full after that. continue reading

First visit to HotPot Culture was to try their steamboat buffet with each own individual hotpot. Now we are back again to try out their porridge buffet.It was wide buffet spread that come with curry chicken , fried carrot cakes, fried eggs, braised eggs etc. They also have some other sauces for you to go along with dishes. We like the curry chicken it was spicy , and the meat is tender, the carrot cake is not too oily and soft. continue reading

One thing I love about hotpot culture is that every person has their own individual hotpot. I like it because this way, you can choose to put whatever you want inside the hotpot. One of my favourite side dishes that comes with the hot pot is the sweet and sour pork.It may not look appetizing here but it is in fact really delicious. The skin is crispy and drenched in delicious sauce. Around $30 for a buffet dinner continue reading
