What I feel sets Longqing apart from other hotpot offerings in Singapore is the soup base .
🔸
I've tried their all soup base they serve - spicy mala, lotus root and lily bulb, pork bone clear broth, tomato soup, wild mushroom, and shark's fin melon herbal soup, and I found them to be thick and deep in flavours, and has none of the artificial flavourings.
🔸
I also found they have several gems that you should order - Japanese flying squid ($16), handmade pork balls and fish paste ($12), and pig stomach ($9), just to name a few of my favourites.
🔸
Treat from the boss.

They have just opened at MBFC, and they're serving premium ingredients (for eg, sashimi grade scallops) at prices similar to other hotpot places. My favorite has to be their wagyu beef and prawn balls (it's real prawn meat rolled into balls).
🔸
They've 4 choices of soup - Mala, collagen with cod fish bone, tomato soup, and herbal soup. I chose the Mala, which was fragrant without being too spicy or numbing, and the collagen cod fish bone soup which was sweet and creamy.
🔸
They also serve cooked food, and I absolutely love their Iberico char siew and their roast duck. It's also near where I work. So I'll definitely be coming back again.

For what you'll be getting, this buffet is value for money. In addition to free flow of Chinese dishes, there'll be five complimentary premium dishes:
🔸
1. Double-boiled supreme mini Buddha-Jumps-Over-The-Wall to Peony Jade, 鲍鱼迷你佛跳墙 (pictured)
2. Sautéed Prawn coated with Custard Salted Egg Yolk 玉河畔招牌奶皇虾球
3. X.O 1/2 lobster serving per person, 野菌焗開邊龙虾
4. Steamed Chilean Sea Bass with Minced Chilli & Garlic Paste, 朵椒蒸鲈鱼
5. Deep-fried Fresh Plump Oysters in Cantonese “Bi-Fung-Tang” style, 避风塘炸生蚝
🔸
These complimentary dishes are available only for one serving, but the other dishes I've tasted were good as well. I liked it enough that I'll be heading there on my own in June.

Putien is still serving these succulent DuoTou clams, and I really think any Putien fans should try at least one of their 8 clam dishes. I didn't realise how plump, fresh and juicy they were until I tried them.
🔸
These clams dishes are here only for a limited time, because mid-spring was the time of the year which gave the best harvest of DuoTou Clams, freshly air-flown from the coastal town of Putian.
🔸
The full menu of the Duotou clams done 8 ways are:
1. Chilled DuoTou Clam in Fermented Wine ($22.80)
2. Deep-fried DuoTou Clam ($22.80/$31.80)
3. Baked DuoTou Clam on Hot Plate ($19.80/$29.80)
4. Steamed DuoTou Clam with Wine ($22.80/$31.80, pictured)
5. Stir-fried DuoTou Clam with Ginger and Spring Onion ($19.80/$29.80)
6. Steamed DuoTou Clam in Minced Garlic ($19.80/$29.80)
7. DuoTou Clam Omelette ($19.80/$29.80)
8. DuoTou Clam Soup with Tofu Meatballs ($19.80/$29.80)
🔸
Pictured is the Stir-fried DUOTOU Clam with Ginger and Spring Onion. I was told it can be found in most homes in Duo Tou Village, as stir-frying is a common cooking method in China. The beautiful aroma from this home-style cooked dish lends extra comfort when eaten with a bowl of warm steamed rice.

Very clean tasting pork that isn't gamey. This is charcoal grilled and marinated with white wine, peppercorn, and served in Chinese Hoisin sauce. Also loving the fat-lean meat ratio here, and with its taut fats and skin, this is tender but not gelat.

8. DuoTou Clam Soup with Tofu Meatballs ($19.80/$29.80)
🔸
Pictured is DuoTou Clams filled to the brim in a bowl and steamed with an important ingredient – the traditional Chinese wine, Huadiao. The sweetness of the clams is gently infused into the alcoholic broth, packing the bowl with a heady aroma. One of my favorite out of the 8!

My first time having DuoTou clams, and I was impressed by how plump and sweet these clams are. It's velvety smooth on the outside and full of sweet clean tasting juices within (swipe for pic).
🔸
Pictured is the Chilled DUOTOU Clam in Fermented Wine, one of the two new flavours offered by Putian this year, giving us a total of 8 ways to enjoy this sweet delicacy this mid-spring. It's the time of the year which yields the best harvest of DuoTou Clams, which they are freshly air-flown from the coastal town of Putian.

If you haven't tried Duotou clams, I'll recommend you to try at least one dish, and see how different it is from other clams you've tried. I'll also share some of my other favourite Duotou clam dishes over time.

This is pork belly braised in their special house sauce. For $10, you get two large slabs of the tender flesh with melty fats. Perfect to go with rice, as it's very addictive with the sauce.
🔸
The Salted Plum was formerly known as the pop-up Five Ten, and it is now settled into its permanent home along Circular Road. Therefore, as with Five Ten, expect to see amp-ed up offerings of Taiwanese tapas including house-made Taiwanese Sausage Patties ($10), Fried Chicken with Nori Mayonnaise ($10), and Shiny Rice ($0.50) which is rice topped with lard and garlic oil.

传统新界乡村粽. Out of the 5 dumplings in RWS Gourmet Dumpling Set ($98++), this is my favourite.
🔸
Created by Fengshui Inn, this dumpling combined the goodness of five grains - soybeans, wheat, broomcorn, foxtail millet and rice, with a tender 10-head whole Australian wild abalone.
🔸
I love the abalone, but that's not the reason why this is my favourite. I like that it's rich and perfectly moist due to the chef’s homemade recipe of superior soy sauce, and it has a yummy mixture of ingredients - plump pork belly, fermented red bean paste, roast pork and salted egg. It has that familiar taste of dumplings we are accustomed to, but the use of premium ingredients had elevated it to another level.
🔸
This is available at Fengshui Inn at $48, or part of the RWS Dumpling Set of 5 Gourmet Dumplings at $98.
🔸
To get the set of 5 Gourmet Dumplings:
* Pre-order from today to 15 June 2018 (advance order of three working days is required)
* Collection is from 21 May to 18 June 2018 from 12:00pm to 8:00pm daily at Feng Shui Inn, Crockfords Tower G2.
* Tel: 6577 6688 or 6577 6599. Email: [email protected] or [email protected]

Amazingly flavourful and rich broth, this now goes into my list of favourite fish soup that I'll keep going back for.
🔸
The broth consists of a soup base with chicken, duck, pork and fish skin. There are 3 different types of fishes to choose from - Ocean Catch (pictured), Wild Caught and Snapper, with a choice from 3 types of broth - original (pictured), miso or spicy.
🔸
Perhaps the secret to its deep flavour was how it was simmered over charcoal for 10 hours, retaining the cooking style of the 50s.
🔸
I'll definitely be back for this again, and likely many times.
