Fufu Pot @ Plaza Singapura - Collaborate With Lucky Dumplings With Asian-inspired Dumpling flavours


Fufu Pot at Plaza Singapura specialises in personal hotpot filled with Asian-inspired flavoured broths. In particular, Stinky Tofu broth is a hot favourite, alongside White Curry, Army Stew and other exciting flavours. To amp up its offerings, Fufu Pot has collaborated with Lucky Dumplings to release two new dumpling flavours with similar Asian vibe.

Stinky Tofu 4/5

The Stinky Tofu ($21.90) hits all the right spots when it comes to flavours and aroma. A concoction of minced meat and spicy bean paste, the broth had an addictive savouriness and spicy accent. In addition, the stinky tofu is slightly porous, a cross between tau pok and dou gan (Chinese pressed tofu), which enables them to soak up the rich broth without collapsing. The usual pungency of stinky tofu has been mellowed down for our local context, but it allows the full umaminess of the broth to come through.

Fried Stinky Tofu 4/5

There is also a fried version as a side dish. The in-house chilli sauce was as zesty as a chicken rice chilli sauce, which added much brightness to the crispy fried stinky tofu.

Tonkotsu Miso 3.5/5

We also had a fufu pot that is much lighter in taste - Tonkotsu Miso ($19.90). Served with pork shabu shabu, Japanese chachu and Ajitama egg, it is like an augmented ramen bowl. The tonkotsu broth wasn't as rich as expected, and the miso flavour was missing. Nonetheless, the hotpot itself is pretty comforting if you are looking for a light-tasting broth.

Kimchi & Egg Dumplings 3.8/5

Mala Dumplings 3/5

Partnering with Lucky Dumplings came two new side dishes, which you get to try till the end of July - Kimchi & Egg ($7.80 for 4pc) and Mala Dumplings ($7.80 for 5pc). While the latter had all the crunch and numbness from fufu's chilli nuts topping, I prefer Kimchi & Egg much more for its juicier filling.


After all the highly flavoured dishes, cool off with some refreshing desserts. Beancurd with Peach Resin was pleasing with silky beancurd, while the ice jelly perked me up with its zest.
