Crispy Taro Ball

$10.80 · 7 Reviews

Smear on some condensed milk if you like your desserts extra sweet. Even @jonathanleewe who doesn't like Orh-Nee, approves of this.
You may think "taro after hotpot's too heavy for dessert", but trust me, no matter how full you are from your meal here, you wouldn't wanna miss these balls 🤓

9.8bucks/serve of 6pcs

These can be elusive as they are hand-made in small batches by the Head Chef. Do make sure to reserve them when you make a table booking. Otherwise you may miss out on ending your steamboat meal with these delightful domes of smooth yam paste coated in a thin, lightly crispy dough.

First, the service by the staff is nothing short of excellent. They were quick to refill the broth, check if the food was ok and if you needed anything.

We ordered the 2 pax set at $70 and added dishes from the ala carte menu, not forgetting to order the crispy taro balls ahead.

I must commend on the mushroom broth, which was so intense, earthy and sweet as ingredients are added along the way.

Ingredients were fresh and the selection that came in the set was quite a variety.

Don't forget to add luncheon meat, fried beancurd roll and the dumplings!

Total bill: $150

And you can't end a meal here without having these! 🙌

The crisp outer layer plays as big a role here as the oozy, chewy taro center. Let them know you want to reserve these the moment you step in cause it sells out fast!

Really love the fresh ingredients for steamboat here (the tofu skin, luncheon meat, super tender Pork collar, Beef shirt Rib Slices and juicy dumplings!) Oh my, the pig liver was so good 🙃The mushroom base was great - till they added the chicken soup stock in without the mushroom Essence and the mala base was on the oilier side but super spicy and shiok!
Super affordable set menu for 6 at $180 (around $30+ per pax!) - that comes with premium pork collar and US short ribs!
Pro Tip: preorder the Crispy Taro Balls ($7.80) when you reserve your seats here - they sell out real fast!

Crisp chewy tapioca starch shell encasing two beautiful pastel hues of orange sweet potato and purple yam. Served warm, these mildly-sweetened glorious balls are guaranteed to satisfy ☺️ 7.8bucks/serve

You wanna know how good these Crispy Taro Balls were? Well, despite feeling stuffed from the steamboat dinner tasting, most of us felt like we could do with a few more of these each! 😜
Made in small batches using sweet potato and flour, these golf ball-sized spheres were crunchy on the outside and ever so slightly chewy all over. Surprisingly, they weren't greasy at all and the smooth yam paste filling wasn't too sweet either.
My advice: Do allocate space in your belly for them.
