We cannot get enough of the pretty pink furnishings and delicious wholesome broths.
Hot pot restaurant Beauty in The Pot, known for its nourishing soup bases, has just launched its third outlet at OneKM mall.
Decked in hues of millennial pink and rose gold across the 288-seater outlet, it is the perfect place for a get-together with your girlfriends. Upon stepping into the restaurant, the pink furnishings, rose gold charging points and marble floor tiles won us over immediately. It has got to be one of the prettiest hot pot restaurants around.
Starting off at the condiment bar, we got to concoct our own sauces ($3.80 per pax with unlimited serving of fruits), such as Beauty Sesame Dip and Crispy Soybean Spicy Dip, based on simple recipes shown on the wall. If you like your condiments simple, go for the pre-prepared Appetising Thai Dip, which happens to be our favourite. It was a nice blend of sweet and spicy that went well with all the dishes.
What is hot pot without the stars of the show? Known for their myriad of health benefits, Beauty in The Pot’s broths really delivered. With six different broths to choose from, you would be spoilt for choice. And thanks to their quadruple pots, you can have up to four flavours at once.
The crowd favourites are the Signature Beauty Collagen Broth and Signature Spicy Nourishing Soup (‘Mala’), but we enjoyed the lighter flavours of the Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth. Simmered over two hours, the herbal aroma from the chicken broth carried a taste of home. It is said to improve blood circulation and strengthen one’s immunity.
Other flavours include the tantalising Cooling Coconut Broth. Your taste buds are in for a treat with this broth made with real coconut flesh and juice, spare ribs, chicken and snow fungus – all to nourish your lungs and soothe your throat.
Veggie-lovers will also be pleased to know that they can choose from the vegetarian options of Longevity Wild Pine Mushroom Broth and Vitamin C Tomato Sweet Corn Broth.
Other than its cosy interior and wide variety of wholesome broths, you’ll be glad to know that Beauty in The Pot does not compromise on its ingredients. They assure quality and freshness by preparing their ingredients in-house daily.
One of the highlights is the Ebiko Prawn Paste. The little bits of crunchy and juicy ebiko from the handmade paste added texture and dimension to the dish.
The Signature Homemade Fish Tofu tasted more like fish cakes, but we had no complaints. The soft texture melted in our mouths quickly, and left us wanting more. Made with a blend of yellowtail fish, soya bean and egg white, the tofu comes in adorable fish-shaped pieces.
Meat lovers, rejoice with the wide selection of meat, from sliced pork belly (from $7.50) to US Wagyu beef (from $24.50). They are all thinly sliced, taking just a few minutes to cook.
Another must-try on the menu is the Fried Beancurd Skin. Enjoy it on its own or dunk it into your favourite broth for a couple of seconds, for more flavour. Even after soaking up the broth, it remained crunchy and crispy with every bite.
While everybody loves a good hot pot meal, nobody likes to reek of oil afterwards. The good news is, these imported-from-China pots are equipped with an exhaust system surrounding them to contain the fumes, so you won’t end up all greasy and smelly after your meal.
