Bountiful CNY Steamboat with Hotpot Heroes!

Who says steamboat meals are boring? They probably have not been to the hotpot joint in Tanjong Katong, Singapore’s first martial arts themed restaurant, called Hotpot Heroes! Step into this thematic restaurant and be transported to a modern arrangement of an old-style Chinese tavern. The red lattice window decor, wooden table tops, traditional Chinese trinkets and the elaborate serving trays were set to impress and elevate one’s dining experience.

For those who are sporting enough, feel free to throw on a set of the traditional costume and accessorize yourself with oriental pigtail hat for men, headdress for women, hand-painted folding fan, hand-held rattle drum and more. That’s @william82sg, @wishuponatart and myself all dressed up and having a little role-playing fun!

Besides the exciting ambience, Hotpot Heroes offers an array of dishes and broths to entice everyone’s taste buds. They have 5 different broths to choose from namely, Beauty Collagen Broth, Beauty Tomato Broth, Mushroom Broth, Sichuan Spicy Broth and Chong Qing Traditional Spicy Broth – my favourite has got to be the nourishing, rich and gratifying Beauty Collagen Broth! The tomato broth was also deliciously mixed to give a tinge of sweetness. I like that the tomato taste was not over-powering.

Here are some of the dishes we tried. You can even order the all-time-favourite Ru Rou Fan (Taiwanese Braised Pork Belly Rice) to go along with the steamboat!

I was impressed by the variety of dishes and condiments you can choose from at Hotpot Heroes! If you are looking to visit Hotpot Heroes, be sure to check out their All-You-Can-Eat buffet! They have 2 sets to choose from.

Since my favourite broth was Beauty Collagen Broth, I was assigned an Er Mei sect membership card! I found this initiative really enticing and at the same time cute! Time to gather your lunch/dinner kakis and head down to this hip and fun joint!
