one of the more enjoyable and delicious hotpot / bbq buffets i’ve gone to 🤍 the tomato soup was so addictive, couldn’t stop drinking. & shoutout to the bbq meat platter - it was a MOUNTAIN of meat and we were trying our best to finish but so so yummy!

also the place was so pretty and the staff were very approchable and friendly too so the dining experience was a huge plus!

@haolaiwusg has about SIXTY (yes, six zero) options on their impressive buffet spread, which is a nightmare for indecisive folks. Fortunately, Hao Lai Wu has very kindly compiled a selection of their greatest meat marvels into a convenient & well presented BBQ Meat Platter.⠀

The BBQ Meat Platter features their Signature HLW Pork Chop, Signature Chicken Chop, Black Pepper Beef, Special Marinated Pork Belly & Signature Chicken Wings. The Signature HLW Pork Chop was flavourful & tender for a lean cut of meat, and it had been marinated in a mixture of soya sauce, cumin & black pepper for a salty, peppery & herby kick. The Signature HLW Chicken Chop, on the other hand, was marinated very simply with what appears to be soy sauce & sesame oil, and the juicy chicken was the mildest flavoured of the lot. The Black Pepper Beef was intensely peppery, ideal for the pepper heads out there, and the Signature Chicken wings were spicy, savoury and slightly sweet. ⠀

My favourite definitely has to be the Special Marinated Pork Belly, which really lives up to the ‘Special’ in its name. It appears to be marinated in a chili paste of some kind, but the spice levels are surprisingly well moderated. You do get some spice, but it’s well balanced out by a deep delectable umami and a little bit of numbing on the tongue. All the fat rendered from this fatty pork belly imbues this Special Marinated Pork Belly with a pungent, primal smokiness that satisfies the primal part of the brain demanding the smell of searing meat on a grill.⠀

Once again, thank you to @theprsalon & @haolaiwusg for the invite!

No matter how hot it gets in Singapore, I always love me a good barbecue & hotpot buffet. Of course, good BBQ & hotpot buffets don’t come cheap, but at @haolaiwusg, they’ve struck an ideal balance between affordability & quality. Their BBQ & Hotpot buffet starts at $27.80++ from Mondays to Thursdays, and goes up to $29.80++ on weekends & public holidays.⠀

Although you do need to top up anywhere from between eight to fourteen dollars for either a single soup pot or a split soup pot, paying less than fifty dollars for ninety minutes of stuffing yourself silly is still quite a bargain. Besides, their Collagen Beauty Soup & Authentic Spicy Mala Soup ($7 each in a split pot) were incredibly delicious and I had no qualms paying for the sapid soups. The Collagen Beauty Soup was rich, thick and luscious from all the pork bone & chicken skin boiled into the broth, and had hearty herbal flavours as well. The Authentic Mala is everything a hothead could ever want: it’s spicy, numbing and savoury, ready to breathe fiery life into everything that is cooked in it.⠀

Speaking of things we could cook, oh boy! You are utterly spoiled for choice here at Hao Lai Wu. Choose from my personal favourites of spicy pork ribs, special marinated pork belly and yakiniku beef cubes to baby octopus, flower crab, bamboo clams, a whole load of veggies and the universal hotpot must-have: cheese tofu. If you’re in an adventurous mood, you can even get assorted innards such as pig’s liver & intestines, and beef tripe to channel your inner masterchef. They also have ready to eat braised meats as well, such as braised chicken feet, braised pig’s intestines & even braised pig’s trotter if you can’t wait for your grill & hotpot to get going.⠀

Here at Hao Lai Wu, you roll in hungry, and you roll out absolutely stuffed with your wallet still intact. I think I’ve just stumbled upon a hidden gem, my friends.⠀

Thank you for the invite and hopefully the first of many collabs @theprsalon, and 多谢多谢 to @haolaiwusg for the insanely generous hospitality!

Wide variety of seafood, vegetable, marinated meats for BBQ and kid friendly options for steamboat. Soup bases are quite flavourful, therefore there is no need for sauces.

Staff are friendly and helpful. Buffet prices are affordable.

They do have bubble tea and bingsu options at additional price, collaboration with another stall, but eat-in customers get to enjoy discounts.

Definitely will go there again!

The meat dishes were absolutely outstanding, as they were flavourful and super well-marinated. The stand-outs were the chicken wings, sliced pork belly and meat platter with various marinated meats.

We were also treated to fresh seafood, including sliced fish, baby octopus, cuttlefish, new zealand mussels, bamboo clams, lala clams, crab and fresh prawns.

Other dishes you can get in the buffet are coriander pork balls, fishball with roe, USA sliced beef and so much more.
