Wow I can’t remember the last time I had a “proper” steamboat! Wanted to go HDL but it was fully booked, so I went to this place called “xiao Long kan” instead. Tried it in Cheng du(place of origin) and it was good.
Was not disappointed! Hmm the mala is slightly different from the one in chengdu. I think they’ve tweaked the recipe to cater to local’s taste. You can choose the “spicy” level of the mala too.
Ordered their tomato soup base as well. It’s better than HDL’s! A must try if you’re a tomato soup fan like me.
The ingredients are a little limited.. but it’s fresh and the soup is really good. The price is similar to HDL too.
P.s They have large INTESTINES!! So rare to find it in Singapore’s hotpot restaurants. A must try
P.p.s they have a few branches but the branch at Bugis seems to have a lot of negative reviews.. give the Bedok branch a try
