For their Tze Char dishes, my favourites were the super appetising Curry Fish Head ($25) that went really well with rice, the flavourful Double-Cooked Pork ($10, $14, $18) and the Buttermilk Cheese Prawn ($20, $25, $30) that featured fresh prawns in a rich & creamy sauce! I had mixed feelings about the Chili Crab (1 crab for $30, 2 for $50) though; the crab was fresh and came with free mantous (fried buns) but personally found the sauce too sweet for my liking.

For Mala Xiang Guo, each 100g of ingredients (no matter meat, seafood or vegetables) is priced affordably at $1.99 with hotpot base at just $1. With a wide variety of fresh ingredients to choose from, this is easily one of the most value for money mala xiang guo you can get!

They are conveniently located at 236 Upper Thomson Road, within waking distance from Marymount Mrt Station.


Throwback to a really good and filling hotpot dinner with a friend few weeks ago at @city_hot_pot’s Guoco Tower outlet where we had the set meal for 2 pax (Set B)

The set comes with fresh ingredients like Wagyu Chuck Eye Roll, Prawn Paste, Pork Collar, Fish Fillet, Prawns and more. Plus we get to choose a staple each (we both chose the braised pork rice for an additional top up of $1).

There are a total of 15 soup bases to choose from, with options like Fish Maw Fish Soup (my favourite!), Fish Soup with Milk, Prawn Soup, Herbal Fish Soup and more! Another plus point is that each customer gets an individual hotpot with 2 soup bases each, which is definitely a much more hygienic concept.

Overall, i’d definitely recommend this hotpot place for its fresh ingredients, delicious soup bases & value for money set meals!

The three newly launched individual set menus are priced at $36.80++, $48++ & $68++ per person (min 2 pax), and you can even top up $38++ / pax for wine pairing.

The $68++ menu includes the Stir-fried Ramen with Lobster in XO Sauce, a unique, must-try dish that shows off the chef’s penchant for experimentation. Next is the Stewed Japanese Kurobuta Pork, with house made barbecue sauce permeating every inch of the superbly tender loin meat. The nourishing Double-boiled Shredded Shark’s Fin in Shark’s Cartilage Soup (cooked for 5 hours) and the great appetiser combo of Chilled Black Fungus and Jellyfish in Vinaigrette, Crispy Whitebait tossed with Salt & Pepper, and Crackling Pork Belly are some of the other highlights of this delectable set menu.


Another dish that i really liked from The Famous Kitchen is the Steamed Fish with Preserved Vegetables on Hot Plate. The broth is sourish and on the saltier side, which i found to be really appetising while the fish (marble goby) is fresh and really tender! Highly recommended!

The Famous Kitchen is a casual family-style restaurant specialising in delectable seafood creations and Nanyang cuisine – a cuisine celebrating Teochew, Hokkien and Cantonese cultures assimilated into Southeast Asia.

One of their popular dish is the Oven Baked Volcano Chicken with its very insta-worthy presentation. The chicken is first served to the table sprung upright and served with crackers and sauce. It is then doused with rum and set on fire, where a quick flame will burst out that is sure to look great on your Instagram.

Taste wise, it was very impressive too! The exterior was crispy while the chicken meat was juicy and tender with a flavourful bite. Goes really well with the 2 different sauces (crushed coriander & mint dipping sauce) too! Advanced order needed.

Featuring more than 30 authentic stalls direct from the Ningxia Night Market in Taiwan, come enjoy authentic Taiwanese delights with live performances in an open space!

Of all the food i tried, the standout for me was probably the Fried Squid ($12) from stall 12! It was very crispy and well marinated, and as you can see from the pic the portion is huge too! Other food items i would recommend are Sesame Chicken Mee Sua & Braised Pork Rice (Stall 7), Braised Beef Noodles (Stall 13), Taiwanese Sausage with Glutinous Rice & Traditional Soya Beancurd (Stall 19).

Standouts from the eight or nine course menu* (priced from S$588++ for 4 pax to S$2888++ for 10 pax) include the Grand Shanghai Fortune Pot filled with lux ingredients like abalone, sea cucumber, scallop, prawn and pork knuckle, the nourishing Double Boiled Shark Cartilage Soup with fish maw & bamboo pith, Steamed Soon Hock which melts in the mouth, and the signature Crispy Smoked Duck infused with osmanthus tea-leaf. Be sure to save space for their unique pan-fried Nian Gao, delicately sweetened with organic cane sugar. (*ingredients and dishes vary based on chosen set menu)

I personally have not tried their original braised pork rice in Taiwan but the version served here (M-$4.90,L-$5.90) is pretty good! The braised pork is flavourful with a melt in the mouth texture! Other noteworthy items include the Kong Rou rice (M-$5.90,L-$7.40) and Golden Chicken Chop ($4.20), which is crispy and very well seasoned.


Choose from 6 different soup bases (laksa, collagen, mala, herbal chicken, tomato & spicy fragrant); my personal favourite is the spicy fragrant. Pair your soup with a variety of more than 50 side dishes such as beef & mutton slices, beef tripe, fish maw and bamboo clams etc. Free-flow selected drinks and ice-cream are included too!

For mala xiang guo, i would recommend going for their 大辣 if you’re a spicy food lover.
