Best places for hot pot dinners (and suppers) in Singapore

By July 11, 2018Local Life

TL;DR – Drop it like it’s hot.

Steamboat is definitely not reserved just for Chinese New Year, I can have it anytime, every time! If you are a hot pot fan too, besides the popular Hai Di Lao and Beauty in the Pot, here are some other noteworthy places worth checking out!


JPOT is one of the few hot pot places with Singapore-style soup bases like Chilli Crab, Laksa and Herbal Bak Kut Teh. Owned by the JUMBO group, there are seven types of soup bases and a large variety of ala-carte ingredients you can choose from, including fresh seafood, meats, dim sum and even fried man tou.

2. Shi Li Fang

Shi Li Fang is one of the more affordable hot pots around. The casual Taiwanese hot pot restaurant has nine outlets and has a large variety of seafood and meat items to choose from including items such as crayfish, scallops, lobsters, bamboo clam and even abalone. The $9.90 individual set meal is perfect to satisfy your hot pot craving when you have nobody else to share with.

There are 10 Shi Li Fang outlets in Singapore including Orchard Central, Hougang 1 and Eastpoint Mall. 

3. Shang Pin Hot Pot

Shang Pin closes at 12am, which makes it a pretty good supper spot. I personally highly recommend the black chicken soup base!

4. Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao Steamboat

If you are a big eater, then you might want to consider the Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao Steamboat buffet – which like the name suggests, comes with free flow piping hot Xiao Long Baos.

All outlets can be found at their website

5. Guo Fu Steamboat

Guo Fu Steamboat is another place with all-you-can-eat Xiao Long Baos. A premium beef hot pot place from Northeast China, Guo Fu is known for its herbal soups concocted in consultation with a Chinese medicine practitioner, which includes Male Vitality and Beauty Soup amongst eight other soup bases.

Address: 20 Cross Street #01-31 China Court China Square Central, Singapore 048423

6. Hai Xian Lao

Another great supper spot, Hai Xian Lao is open till 5am daily. If it is a cool night, we suggest you sit in their al fresco dining area. Food wise, you can expect your usual steamboat items of seafood, meats and vegetables but they do have a rather unique rich prawn broth soup base!
