By hotel standards, it’s a decent chicken rice, with a high price point as expected.
I found the rice fragrant and of very little oiliness - probably to suit the palate of their international guests better.
The chicken breast meat I’d asked for was acceptable with only a slight dryness at its thickest point.
There was an accompanying bowl of soup that unfortunately, tasted rather plain but the chilli dip did please me. Intensely spicy it was not but nicely balanced with lime and ginger it was.

There are 5 soup bases to choose from - we picked bak kut teh which had a well-balanced sweetness with strong herbal flavour, and a pretty spicy blazing magma (Japanese miso) that’s good for dipping your meats in. There’s also clear chicken soup, tomyum and Sichuan mala soup, made from their secret recipe which uses 28 spices and ingredients!

The hotpot ingredients were fresh and pretty affordable (prices start from $2) - we particularly loved the iberico pork collar ($5)! Other than that, there’s also cooked side dishes. Personal favourite was the Seasonal fiery mala Fish ($10.80), crisp, meaty and the mild spiciness proved to be very addictive!

Thank you @dingxianhotpot /@brandcellar for having us and @cweizhi for extending the invite!

This whole baby many was carefully prepared with more than 20 ingredients, including saffron, cumin, coriander seed, then roasted whole. It's served with mint yoghurt, spicy tomato salsa and chilli dip. I liked this, and I went for a second round!

This dish is served as palate cleanser after a series of palatable dishes and in anticipation of the dessert 🙃

This bowl of udon soup is my favourite. Broth has a good level of soy saltiness flavour and the udon is bouncy and Q! I love it that much more because you can pair every bite with their free flow side dishes like seaweed, radish, chilli padi, and fried batter flakes. It may not look filling, but if u enjoy the sides as much as i do, this will most definitely fill you up. Go give it a try guys its worth a taste!

This was a really good bowl of chirashi don, with huge chunks of fresh salmon, chutoro and swordfish. $9 base (includes salmon, tamago and cucumber), chutoro ($6), swordfish ($3) and unagi ($2.50).

Wasn’t exactly muah chee, as its texture leaned more towards something like a harder jelly. The yuzu flavour wasn’t strong in this too, I’d skip this and try others instead!

Thank you @dingxianhotpot for having us and @brandcellar for the kind invite! 🙆🏻‍♀️

Really good! Freshly fried, can see the steam when u bite into it. Sides are pretty good too. The bun not as nice as Popeye's

Amazing experience we had at Astons Marina Square. The sides which includes the usual sides u get with an Astons meal (excluding fries) are free flow! Not forgetting the drinks and ice cream too!

For a buffet, price not that high strting at around $13.90, with GST included ! Very value for money.

My go-to favourite for Brown Sugar Boba Milk (青蛙撞奶) is from @rbteasg which I didn’t get a chance to share with y’all as often 😂
.
P.S. I personally love Yuancha for their quality tea & Hollin’s for their flavoured matcha & cocoa pearls! KOI is doing great in terms of maintaining consistency while Sharetea reminds me very much of my 2nd home. Playmade’s pretty decent for multiflavoured pearls but it’s too far for me. Still need more tries from other brands like Liho, Muyoo, Partea & more.
