After another round of intense shopping and massage, we saved our stomachs for this cheap ‘thai style “hot pot/bbq” that we found round the corner of our hotel. I do apologise I have no idea where this place is because it was like a round the corner stumble upon place .. but to sum up, its super cheap! when converted back to SGD, we paid around $7 per person just for a buffet style of ‘bbq+ hotpot’ …
The area is very spaced out .. and we saw alot of people that seemed to come here after their work .. so we thought we give it a shot 🙂
so this is what happens :
On every table, theres this :
and a worker will come by and bring this and light up the whole thing. He will then pour the water until a certain level ..
then .. so we glanced around to see how the people cook their stuff and followed suit.. while waiting for the pot to heat up and all, some of us went to get some of the cooked food and meat
and so …
Verdict: 1.5/5 of us will return for the chin chow .. ahhaha the free flow dessert – the chin chow was chewy and sweet. Nice to cool off from this ‘bbq/steamboat’ .. we all thought this is like a Thai version of seoul garden .. but hey its cheap so can’t really complain much :p Good experience nonetheless 🙂
What is a cooking utensil on the last picture?
Hi there, You referring to the gold “inverted pot”? It is something similar to combining a grill and a steamboat together.
hmm if you think of a top hat, except that it is made of metal. The top part of it is for cooking meat, and the circumference around it, is filled with water/soup, for ingredients that can be cooked in soup such noodles, dumplings, vegetables etc..
I think the concept of this is so that as you cook the meat, the essence is being drained into the outer circumference of the pot.
Hope this answers your question!
Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
The issue is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
I’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something relating to this.
Thank you for your compliments 🙂
Am very glad to know you take interest in my passion 🙂
