What better way to kick off 2014 than to have a hot pot of steamboat?
On my visit to
美人鍋 (direct translation is "Beauty Pot"). It cost $25++ per pax and a minimum of 2 pax for each order. (Only available at 5pm onwards. Do note that there is a meal time allowance of 1.5 hrs for each table but i think they are not strict about it.) So what happens if you have 3 people eating? We still ordered the portion for 2 pax and some sides. Prior to dinner, we had to go Mac to satisfy some hunger pangs. So our dinner portion at the restaurant was just nice for 3 ladies!

|Japanese rice wrapped with bacon.|
The stock comes in a coagulated form because it is full of collagen! As with all rich soup, too much of it will turn you away. So please drink in moderation.
Our dear Sharon helped us cook the ingredients without us asking her to. She explained to us what the ingredients were and if they were organic while she put them into the soup. She made it such a good looking pot.

For $25++ per pax, i think it is a little steep to be honest. But it is a good experience nevertheless. Will i come back? Maybe not. There are plenty of new and interesting things to try as well. Maybe i'll try their lunch next time. The noodles (mochi noodles) that came last was a nice way to round off the meal.
