This is one of the few restaurants that made it to the top thanks to their signature pork bone soup. It ticks off every box when it comes to the perfect soup base – rich, milky and flavourful all in one pot. Plus, refills are free so slurp and drink away! They serve a decent portion of ingredients which is sufficient for big groups and they have other finger food as well which are great for munching on while waiting for the soup to boil. We highly recommend their deep fried pork belly with shrimp paste which is super crispy; trust us, it’s going to be your new addiction.

2. Dragon Door Inn Steamboat

Nestled along the street of Jalan Manis, Taman Segar, its exterior will surely catch your attention with their bright red lanterns hanging from above. Forget about the conventional way of cooking on a gas stove, Dragon Door Inn breaks away from the norm by using a charcoal pit instead. So, get ready to be drenched in sweat or pro tip: try to sit further away from the pit and avoid the heat! Their pork bone soup and herbal soup seem to be crowd favourites and since they go on an a la carte basis, the bill could be a little hefty but with their fresh ingredients and impeccable service, it is definitely worth a try.

If you’re looking for a cozy spot with a relaxing ambience to enjoy Taiwanese hot pot with your pals, Taifeng is the place for you. This restaurant is often raved by foodies for its signature sour vege soup base. Tangy and packed with flavour, this broth is an exceptional choice if you’re up for something different. Additionally, true steamboat lovers would be aware of another factor that makes a shop stand out from the rest – their dipping sauce, and Taifeng’s signature dipping sauce is certainly a winning point for the restaurant.

Another one of a kind steamboat restaurant to add to the list has got be Watercress Steamboat. A fan of watercress or itching to go on another food adventure? You’re gonna have to give this place a shot. They are famous for their watercress soup base (duh!) but if you’re not fond of this vegetable, feel free to go for their tom yam base instead. We would say this is relatively affordable, so it’s perfect for gathering and splitting the bill.

If Coco Steamboat is known for their pork bone soup, Le Tian definitely comes in a close second. Some foodies have even claimed it to be better than Coco Steamboat and we would say that it really depends on your preference. They use a variety of fresh ingredients so you’ll be spoilt for choice. The only downside is that it can be a little crowded and finding parking may be a pain in the neck. So, be sure to come earlier or take the MRT to avoid the traffic!
