My colleagues ordered the set for us to share: $138++ for 4 pax. I was quite surprised to find out that the steamboat is actually a personal pot. I chose the Silky Porridge Soup Base since I’ve heard good reviews about it and other places don’t offer this. It wasn’t porridge per se, meaning there weren’t any grains in it. Instead it was more like a slightly starchy rice water (trust me it’s not as gross as it sounds) which was not bad. There was already some taste and flavour before I added in any ingredients.

Seafood Platter
This platter was huge! It consisted of live prawns, sliced fish, scallop, handmade prawn ball and fish ball, sea clam, shrimp dumplings, siew mai, tau pok with fish paste, red chilli with fish paste and fish paste tofu. Overall I did not enjoy most of the things here especially the yong tau fu, siew mai and dumplings etc which were soso/not very nice. I liked the fish and scallops though, and the handmade prawn ball was really good. You could still see small chunks of prawns in the prawn ball.

Beef Short Rib and Kurobuta Pork
There were a few choices of meat to choose from – Beef Short Rib, Kurobuta Pork, Pork Loin, Chicken, Marinated Beef, Marinated Pork and Marinated Chicken. We chose the first 2. The Meat were not bad but I’ve had better ones elsewhere.

Platter of Homemade Spinach Skin Beancurd, Fried Beancurd Skin, Fried Fish Skin and Fried Wanton
I liked everything in this platter! Everything was crisp and nicely fried and not oily at all. I placed some of the fried fish skin into my silky porridge and it was quite nice! The fish skin was really crispy so even though I placed it in the porridge for about a min, it did not turn soggy at all.

In the set there was also Spinach, Tang-O and Enoki Mushroom included. For the carbs you could choose 2 items from either rice, Laksa noodle, vermicelli, instant noodle and pho/thin hor fun.

It worked out to be about $40/pax and for this price and quality I really think that it’s not worth it (don’t forget this is a set so you may not necessarily like all the items included). I ordered ala carte at Crystal Jade Steamboat (Zhongshan Mall) and really enjoyed all the food and spent only $32/pax.
