From the Burpple community

This is our go-to for reasonably priced hot pot and affordably priced beer; the industrial chic setting of brick walls and cement floors is a nice plus. Along with standard ingredients like sliced meat, seafood and veggies, the Steamboat Buffet ($29.80) also features lesser provided ingredients like pig intestines, prawn paste and beef omasum (a part of cow stomach). The latter is especially delicious having soaked up all the flavours in the mala broth. Like Guo Fu Steamboat, the price here excludes the broth base β€” expect to pay an average of $18 for two soups, so come in a group to keep the cost down. Some favourite broths among the Burpple community include the Sichuan mala, the pork-based bone soup and sweet tomato. Beer lovers would appreciate that the beer here averages at $6 a serving, with four big bottles of Qingdao going for $20!

If you are looking for all you can eat buffet concept hot pot yet with fresh ingredients, check this one out.

Good ambiance and very price friendly beer ($6) as well. They've made a lot efforts in the whole decor also. Will come back again! πŸ‘πŸ»

Steamboat Buffet (~$40/pax)

Newly opened @55steamboat serves up excellent soup bases like their pork bone soup and mala soup. The rich pork bone broth is already very tasty on its own. Overall, ingredients were very fresh. I particularly enjoyed their big intestines strips, an item seldom available at buffets. Another item deserving special mention is their handmade prawn ball. Served in a piping bag, the service staff will assist you to add the prawn paste into the soup in the shape of little prawn balls! Once cooked, the balls are a nice pinkish red and delivers the sweetness and crunchiness of the fresh prawn meat!

55 Steamboat is currently running a 10% discount opening promo so capture the opportunity to try this at a stealπŸ˜‰!

Newly opened 55 Steamboat is located at 55 South Bridge Road β€” easy to remember. This cosy place is outfitted with brick walls and cement floors, and will surprise you with its reasonable prices, attentive service and high quality meats. At $29.80 per person (no GST and excluding soup base), expect interesting options such as pig intestines, prawn paste, beef omasum (have this in your mala soup!) and lamb slices on top of the standard choices. Expect to order multiple plates of the sliced beef and marinated beef β€” they're excellent. Choose from three levels of spiciness for their mala Hot Spicy soup base, and also try the sweet Tomato for a non-spicy option. Bear in mind that two soups will cost $18, so be sure to dine here in a group of four or more like Burppler Hwans Lim did to get the best value (psst, she came twice in a weekend)! Pro tip: Come with beer-loving friends β€” four big bottles of Qingdao go for just $20 (that's cheaper than at most coffeeshops)!
Avg Price: $40 per person

Sorry about the photo that doesn't do this justice. Fans of η™ΎεΉ΄YTF will love this! It's basically free flow of your favourite prawn balls. πŸ˜‚

With the constant rain and chilly weather, there's only one thing on my mind – hot, steaming bowls of soup soup soup! πŸ˜‹ Just opened a week ago, 55 steamboat has quite a wide range of items on the menu (some you won't normally find at the standard steamboat places too), better quality and very friendly service to boot! πŸ™Œ

The soup base we got was the Mala (level one for us please πŸ™ˆ) and the Bone Soup – a pork bone base. The bone soup was sooooo gooooood! Right off the bat, we were slurping it down. And the owner says no msg! Do note that the soup is a separate charge ($18) so bigger groups of about 4 pax would be more worth it. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦

The meat range is nubbad, with sliced meats that will satisfy. We mainly stuck to the Marinated Beef that was super tender and the Sliced Pork Belly. We also loved the Pig's Intestines that was super shiok after taking a slow bath in the mala.

Overall a great experience, but can be pricy if you're going down with just 2 pax. I'd recommend grabbing the nearest couple and making it a double date. πŸ‘―πŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈ
