Once I knew #BurppleBeyond was available at “Hotpot Heroes”, a new place in my neighborhood, I decided to have my next family dinner there.
The four-broths combo pot was what we went for and this is the combination we had: medium level Sichuan Mala (spicy, oily but tasty), Wild Mushroom (we liked its strong earthy fragrance), Beauty Collagen (neutral tasting but could be more “collageny” I felt) and Beauty Tomato (pleasantly sweet and easy to drink).
Because there were 6 of us, we could redeem a maximum of 3 X Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 deals. Our picks were the Meat Dish (U.S. Angus beef short rib + sliced pork belly), Seafood Dish (a whole golden pomfret + a bowl of asari short-neck clams) and Handmade Dish (prawn paste with ebiko + mixed balls platter). Of course we couldn’t resist piling on other items that are mainstays in any respectable hotpot meal like luncheon meat, fried beancurd skin rolls, assorted mushrooms and vegetables.
I felt the overall quality of the food here was really decent - attractively presented and fresh in taste.
The mix-your-own-dipping-sauce section had an acceptable number of condiments to play around with but could have been topped up more promptly.
Service was earnest and sincere but as this place is very new, things weren’t so smooth-running yet and the staff were slightly slow to respond at times. However, I am sure things will improve very soon since they all seem to have a positive and good attitude.
I must admit I felt a bit thirsty when I got home and when I woke up this morning. Not sure if that is due to MSG in the soups or my overzealous attack on the luncheon meat 😂
