One Pot (一锅) @ Jalan Benaan Kapal (Kallang Park) - Cheap & Quality Hotpot In A Ulu Food Centre
In my wildest imagination I would not have imagine having hotpot in an ulu food centre that I have not even known of its existence. I love eating hotpot, so for my birthday celebration, I suggested to go to One Pot (一锅) at Kallang Park after reading MissTamChiak review of the place.
I was taken back to find a food centre located at a quite corner in Kallang Park. Even all the stalls were closed except for One Pot during my visit. However the place is packed with people having hotpot.
Diners can choose from the pork, chicken or beef set. The pricing begins from $15 for a pax to $60 for 5 pax. The set is served in a wooden box. It comes with fresh ingredients such as the choice of meat (depend on the set you order), fish, quail eggs, luncheon meat, fish balls, crab sticks, prawns, minced meat, mushrooms, tang hoon and vegetables. I have to say that is some presentation.
You can be guaranteed of quality when you sight Brent the stall owner, slicing fresh pieces of pork and beef using the meat slicer. Who says you can't enjoy quality Kurobuta Pork and Australian Ribeye in a hawker centre. You will get this at One Pot.
Besides the ingredients from the set box, depending on Brent's morning marketing, you may also find other ala carte items on the menu. During my visit, we ordered the meatball, dumpling, fish dumpling and beancurd skin.
One Pot for the time being only offers Japanese Pork Bone soup base for their hotpot. Unfortunately there are no other soup bases. Trust me the Japanese pork bone soup base is really tasty and goes well with the ingredients. Noteworthy is the dipping chilli sauces, one is spicy and the other slightly sweeter.
What stood out for One Pot is its value for money hotpot with quality ingredients. My meal above for 4 pax is only around $60. It probably will cost you around $100 in some hotpot restaurants. Furthermore, parking there is free too. However, do call Brent to make a reservation before going down to avoid disappointment.
