Da Miao Hotpot is originated from various cities in China including Chengdu, Shenzhen, Wuhan, Shenyang, Xi-an. Serves up Sichuan cuisine, Da Miao Hotpot’s special blend soup is said to contain more than twenty spices, vegetable oils and herbs. For once we were so engrossed in their exciting performances and food is secondary. We were served with Da Miao Traditional Yuan Yang Soup Pot which is a combination of Fresh Mushroom & Pig Bone Soup and Da Miao Special Spicy Soup. Some of the dishes that we have enjoyed imported Australia Prime Beef, Pork Slices, Fresh Shrimp Paste, Scallops and Chicken Slices. Da Miao Special Spicy Soup is not for the faint, having a generous sprinkling of peppercorns and splashings of dried chilli with a thick layer of chilli oil on the surface. Da Miao special spicy soup has more numbing over spicy, it is also aromatic.

What makes Little Sheep Hot Pot different from the Chinese hotpot mainly is its use of lamb meat with only 180 days which is said to be natural, healthy, and precious and could only be taken once a year. Little Sheep Hot Pot is all-hailed from Inner Mongolia, China, known for having hot pot without any dipping sauce. However, there is a variety of dipping sauces where you may mix and match. Also, appetiser and fruits to tuck in while waiting for your food. Usually when we order lamb meat, it has a very overpowering smell and flavour to it that. We can’t tell whether this plate of sliced meat is lamb as it has no bad gamey lamb smell or taste.

One of China’s Top ten global hotpot brand is now in Singapore. Spice World Hot Pot is founded in 2003. It was noted that there is NO artificial flavouring, MSG or flavour enhancers. Keeping the soup broth as authentic as you were having in China. A good mala hot pot starts with the soup. The soup broth is brewed for at least four to six hours in Sichuan China before air flown to Singapore for its secondary preparation. Using deep forest peppercorns from Hongya farmlands, chillies from Guizhou and Sichuan China to brew the soup broth. Born out of Singapore’s love for spicy food, you can choose the level of spiciness (mild, medium, hot) of the mala soup broth you’ll be devouring. Diners can choose to have a Teddy Bear or Hello Kitty shaped out of mala soup, turn on the heat and watch as it melts into a pool of mala broth.

Set within a beautifully designed Southwest Chinese-inspired space, this Chinese hotpot restaurant in the heart of Bedok (located between Bedok Mall and Bedok Food Interchange) offers delicious dishes made with high-quality and fresh ingredients.  The outlandish red lanterns might seem a little out of place in the heartlands, but the opulent décor and gorgeous paintings are sure to draw the attention of passers-by. We tried 3 different types of soup bases, contained in their 3-flavour pot (奔驰锅). Hailing from Chengdu, Sichuan, where the people there are renowned for having high tolerance to spicy food, the signature soup is definitely the Traditional Spicy Soup (牛油红锅).  This bubbling cauldron of fiery-hot soup is extremely comforting, especially on a rainy day or when the craving for something spicy strikes. For those with lower tolerance for spice or prefer a milder broth, the tomato and mushroom soup bases are available too. The Australian beef is slightly more fragrant whereas the American beef is more fatty and retains the beefy flavour.  Both cuts are sliced thinly so you can enjoy them shabu shabu style.

We can’t decide which broth to get! Huadiao Collagen Soup or the Spicy Pickled Crayfish Soup? The collagen soup is light and balanced out the heavier spicy crayfish soup. There are some ready to eat side dishes like Lala Clams in Spicy Sauce and Flaming Pork Ribs to nibble on while waiting for the soup to boil.
