Tianfu Hong Kong Style Steamboat (天府港式火锅小厨 ) @ Tanjong Katong Road
Looking through my photo album, I realized I have missed out on this set of photos. This is a very much overdue post whereby the foodies kaki (Carrie, Daniel, Jacob, Karen, Nicole, Rachie, SiTing and me) decided to have an informal gathering over a steamboat dinner. We decided to go to Tianfu Hong Kong Style Steamboat along Tanjong Katong Road. Actually I have known this place when they are back in their former location at Tiong Bahru before relocating to their new premises a couple of years back. My first taste of satay soup base steamboat was also at Tianfu Steamboat.
The menu is pretty straightfoward. Either order from the set menu and/or selection of ala carte items. To make things easy, we decide to go for the Standard Set Menu ($188 for 6 pax).
The standard set comes with house special US beef or US kurobuta pork, prawns, promfret or red garoupa, sliced clam abalone, fish Maw, drunken kampong chicken, homemade 4 treasures, homemade shrimp dumplings, mushroom platter, vegetables platter, crispy beancurd skin roll, crispy deep fried yam, fried salad youtiao, rice vermicelli and dessert.
The standard house soup base (Ma La hot & spicy, tom yam, fish head and chicken) is free while the the special and superior soup base comes with an additional charge. We decided to go for the Lobster Premium Soup ($12) and House Special Satay Soup ($8). The lobster soup goes pretty well with almost all the ingredients. The soup base itself was rich and flavourful. For the satay soup, it has a nice nutty finishing but can be a bit unique for some people. May not be too suitable for all the ingredients.
Overall it is still quite an enjoyable dinner catching up with fellow foodies friends. The set is quite worthwhile with the portion that is served. This place can be quite crowded so do make sure you make a reservation if you have a big group.
