Since its birth 4 years ago, Beauty in The Pot has never failed to tantalise our palates and vanity souls with its delicious and beauty-enhancing soup broths (yes, we couldn’t resist its collagen broth). Despite the sprouting of various hotpot competitors, the brand does not lose its shine and continues to charm us with the opening of its largest outlet at One KM Mall.
Spanning over 7,600 square feet, the new outlet distinguishes itself from its “siblings” by channelling a pink princess vibe. The walls and ceiling take reference from the beautiful cherry blossoms during spring, while the flooring features white marble stippled with pink quartz. All we would say is the place is certainly a wonderland (and perfect IG backdrop) for all the ladies!
Besides being a heaven for the femmes, the place serves as a great venue for holding company gathering (birthday parties too) with its “private dining rooms with individual pots” concept. These rooms can cater up to 10 people, and we like the fact that it can be combined to form an even spacious room. Moreover, each pot comes with an exhaust system, so you can just sit back and enjoy the hotpot session in a well-ventilated setting.
For the foodies, you will be delighted to know that the outlet serves up to 6 soup bases which includes Signature Beauty Collagen Broth, Signature Spicy Nourishing Soup, Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth, Cooling Coconut Broth, Vitamin C Tomato Sweet Corn Broth and the vegetarian-friendly Longevity Wild Pine Mushroom Broth. A single pot retails from SGD 14, while a quart pot starts from SGD 5 each.
Our favourite is the Cooling Coconut Broth, which comprises of young coconut flesh, chicken’s feet, spare ribs and snow fungus. It offers a subtly sweet taste that gradually changes to savoury with every sip, and goes down easy on our throats. We recommend pairing the broth with seafood and vegetables, as too much meat might mask off the light coconut flavour. The Signature Beauty Collagen Broth won the second place in our hearts with its rich and flavoursome taste. Every sip was so comforting, as the flavours linger in our mouths.
There are also more than 20 condiments and sauces available, and as usual, patrons can choose to top up SGD 3.80 to enjoy the condiments and fresh fruits.
Some of the dishes that we recommend trying includes the Fried Beancurd Skin (SGD 4.90/half; SGD 9.80/full), Signature Homemade Fish Tofu (SGD 2/piece) and Ebiko Prawn Paste (SGD 18.80).
The Fried Beancurd Skin is irresistibly crispy, and you can enjoy it on its own or soak it in your preferred broth. Do not get fooled by its appearance, for it is not at all unctuous and hence not cloying. For the first timer, be sure to follow the 3 seconds cooking method, to get an interesting mix of textures (think beancurd skin with crispy interior and soft broth-soaked exterior).
The Signature Homemade Fish Tofu not only pleased us with its adorable shape but also its melt-in-your-mouth texture. In fact, one piece is never enough!
Handmade daily, the Ebiko Prawn Paste is shaped out of 100% prawn flesh. Every bite just sends a euphoric sensation down our spines as the Ebiko bits explode into a juicy punch in our mouths.
In conjunction with the opening, female patrons can look forward to receiving pink roses from the hunky male models during selected dates and times. Guests can also receive a pair of exclusive Beauty in The Pot chopsticks, along with an SGD 20 catering voucher (while stock last). Wait no further, and bring your fellow hotpot lovers over to Beauty in The Pot now!
