Review Summary:

Among the two hotpot we have tried, Chicken Hotpot may deem acceptable with the taste and the tender chicken, however, the Scandalously Spicy Shrimp was far off the mark dampened by the soggy French Fries and ordinary broth.

Chicken Hotpot Review @ Bedok Point 鸡公煲

Chicken Hotpot 9

We were caught by a whiff of the herbal scent when passing by the Chicken Hotpot outlet at Bedok Point, it smelt good and we finally succumbed to the temptation and decided to give it a try.

Chicken Hotpot is originated from Shanghai and has received some rave reviews from the media since inception in early 2000.

4 types of pots are available – Chicken, Shrimp, Beef & Fish.

Chicken Hotpot 7

We ordered the Chicken Hotpot and the Couple set.

Chicken Hotpot 5

This is their house specialty, come with Small, Medium and Large, you can have a choice of the level of spiciness, Non-Spicy, Mild-Spicy or Spicy. We opted the Mild-Spicy but frankly, you hardly can taste the chili sensation at all, it was just a little of chili flakes added more on presentation than to spice up the broth.

The broth was made of a special sauce which was thick and inundated with piquant herbal flavour, taste is subjective and some will like the strong bold flavour but could be over-bearing to others. There were capsicum, onion and celery added with chicken piece.

Chicken Hotpot used Kampung chicken for the hotpot and that reflected well from the tender chicken in the pot. Ala Carte side dishes like meat and vegetables are available and you can add to the soup for more flavour. Broth can be refilled but with bone stock so the gravy was gradually got diluted so do the flavour.

Scandalously Spicy Shrimp 

Chicken Hotpot 6

The broth was closely resembling the Thai TomYam soup with sweet, sour and mild spicy flavour. Cooked with Celery, cucumber, lemongrass and shrimps with FRENCH FRIES!! Can you image putting French fries in a pot of broth? May be it helped to increase the serving size and made the pot of hotpot looked full but with French fries?? Sorry, we totally cannot appreciate it. The prawns were way over-cooked and lost the tenderness and juiciness. A mediocre hotpot in our opinion.

Pork and Chive Dumplings (6 pieces) $6.8

Chicken Hotpot 8

Freshly made Pork and Chive Dumplings, not too bad with the juicy and flavourful filling.

Add on dishes are available and self service.
