Cuisine Master Hotpot

Don't expect sloshing soups and greasy tables at this high-end establishment. This place serves premium sets including multiple courses of top-notch ingredients like baby lobster, grouper and Australian ribeye. There are also affordable noodle bowls, with toppings such as slipper lobster and Kurobuta pork, for lunch.

Hai Di Lao

Judging from the crowds, it seems like this hotpot restsaurant is a winner with many. The Sichuan hotpot chain offers good service and affordable grub. The food doesn't disappoint with seven savory soup bases, a double flavor option and a comprehensive list of hotpot items including their famous mashed shrimp and homemade tofu.

Hotpot Kingdom

MBS just got a little cozier with this hotpot restaurant. Although it's pretty premium with ingredients like Kagoshima wagyu beef, lobster and handmade meatballs, we're here for the flavorful broth. It comes in flavors like Macanese pork bone, fresh fish soup and beef consomme, among others.

Imperial Treasure Steamboat Restaurant

The first thing they do when you're seated is plonk down a 12-condiment rack so you can create your own dips. Here, you can also get double soup options with broths like Imperial drunken chicken and pork bone. The menu is equally as dizzying with ingredients like homemade cuttlefish noodles, Kurobuta pork belly, sweet prawns and an assortment of meatballs.

The Magic of Chongqing Hotpot

The essence of good hotpot is in its soup base and this place does it well. The rich chicken stock is a winner, so is the chilli-based soup. There are four dipping sauces and a wide selection of ingredients like sliced beef, fish paste and golden mushrooms.

MK Restaurant

This popular suki (Thai-style hotpot) chain features a wide variety of ingredients to be cooked in a tom yum or vegetable soup base. Dip the cooked meats in flavorful sauces like their signature suki or fish sauce. Other not-to-be-missed options are the MK Roast Duck and homemade red ruby dessert.

The Mushroom Pot

If you're a mushroom lover, there's no other place for hotpot than here. This place is known for its wild mushroom hotpot buffet, with a wide selection of importad mushrooms like golden fried shitake, Thai-spiced mushrooms and monkey head mushrooms. Also on the menu are ramen sets and individual paper steamboat sets.

Shabu Sai

This shabu-shabu buffet restaurant offers a range of meat, seafood and vegetables to be cooked in a variety of soup bases, including curry dashi and tomato, with around 20 condiments to match. For those craving something a little cold, there's also a sushi bar to take advantage of.

Shabuya & Shochu Bar

A spacious restaurant with wood planeling and a waterfront view, this shabu-shabu specialist is also a littly boozy with a wide range of shochu. You can cook your meat and seafood in three types of stock: tonkotsu, spicy miso and shoyu.

Tsukada Nojo

A cozy 30-seater specializing in bijin nabe, or "beauty pot" in Japanese. It comes with white, collagen-rich pudding pieces and once heated, creates a creamy golden broth. Ingredients-wise there are chicken meatballs, zucchini, prawns and enoki mushrooms to choose from.
