Beauty In The Pot @ VivoCity - Finally A Nearer Outlet For The Westies
Taking over the space which used to occupy Paradise Dynasty at VivoCity is Beauty In The Pot. For those not familiar with the mall, it is located above Golden Village Cinema or besides the new public library at VivoCity. This is by far their latest outlet among the three Beauty In The Pot concept by the Paradise Group.
Like the other outlets, the restaurant offers a variety of soup bases such as the Signature Beauty Collagen Broth, Signature Spicy Nourishing Soup, Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth, Cooling Coconut Broth, Tomato Broth and Mushroom Broth. Depending on the choice of broths, it comes in single pot, dual or quad pots.
I like my meats for hotpot and I like the choices on Beauty In The Pot's menu. For Pork, they have selection such as US Kurobuta Pork, Nagano Pork Belly and Nagano Pork Collar. As for the beef, there are US Angus Prime Short Ribs, US Wagyu Ribeye and Beef Tripe.
One of my must order item at Beauty In The Pot is the thickly sliced Red Grouper served on a bed of ice. It is understand that they are freshly delivered from the fish market daily.
A definitely must order for me is the Fried Beancurd Skin. It is supposed to be only cook for 1 to 3 seconds, so one just gets the bite of crispiness while allowing the beancurd skin to soak up the broth. I personally prefer it to be slightly longer, allowing it to soak up everything.
If you are spoilt of choices and do not know what to order, just go for the different platter selections. Once you know what you like, you can order the specific item in your second round or next visit.
However I have a small complains. I am a bit upset that Beauty In The Pot is charging for the sauces per pax. Come on who eats steamboat without sauces. I have met some staff that didn't even explain to the customers but just put the charges at the end of the dinner in the bill.
