Beauty in The Pot is one of the concept from Paradise Group. It’s one of the crazy crowded steamboat aka hotpot restaurant in Singapore.

IMG_20160102_130045_HDRTheir signature is the Beauty Collagen Broth ($20 per pot / $25 for twin flavors). The collagen soup base isn’t boiled from chicken but from Shark Cartilage which give you rich flavors on your tongue and also abundant benefits for your health. *p.s. also the beauty for the ladies 😀

Collagen Soup was too delicious till you can’t get enough of it but don’t worry, they give you four bottles of refills and it’s free! So it’s okay if you don’t order drinks because the sup itself can make you so full already.

The Ingredients are fresh and superb tasty. You can order either one or half portion (half portion can suit for 2 pax). Order half portion on each ingredients and you can get to taste a lot. We ordered some kinds of mushrooms, Sliced Pork Belly ($12), Ebiko Prawn Paste, Fried Fish Skin ($5), Tofu, Lotus Root, Spinach.

There’re a lot of ingredients for you to choose. They provide an iPad for each table so you can look at the menu slowly while swiping them one by one on the iPad 😀

The Mixture of the soup and ingredients is so delicious. You can put all the ingredients inside the soup or you can just agar agar put inside the soup for few seconds and eat it. Before that, you can dip the ingredients inside the sauce that you can choose and mix by yourself.

The Service of this restaurant is excellent. The waiter / waitress will treat you like a queen / king all the time! They are very attentive and polite, and they bow ALL THE TIME! Like if they remove your plate, they bow, help you with the soup, bow, take your orders, bow. This maybe the greatest restaurant service so far.

Will I come back again?

YES for sure. The collagen soup is so addicting and probably will make you want more and more.

Tips:

If you want to come, be sure to call and make a reservation first. We came at 10 pm to have late dinner but it’s full house and the receptionist told us that we have to wait till 1 am which means 3 more hours. So we decided to go back and have dinner somewhere else then go back to the restaurant for lunch the day after. *we called and made reservation at 11am when the restaurant just opened 😀

Rate : 9.5/10

IMG_20151002_170440_HDR
Buddha Tooth Relic TeIMG_20151002_171621_HDRmple and Museum (新加坡佛牙寺龙华院) is a four-storey Buddhist Temple located in the Central district of Singapore. It was built based on the Tang Dynasty architectural style and also to house the tooIMG_20151002_170607_HDRth relic of the historical Buddha – claimed that it was found in 1980 in Myanmar.

From outside, you can see the grand building, like super huge temple, and it is! When you step inside, you can see every beautiful part of the temple. It’s artistic, colorful, and very Zen. It gives you warmth and peace when you are inside the temple. It’s also very clean and wide. You can take elevator to go to the Sacred Light Hall (Sacred Buddha Tooth Relic Chamber) on the top floor, which is the repository of the sacred Buddha tooth. *no photographs allowed in this place

There are a lot of Buddha statues around the temple. There’s also a beautiful garden located on the top floor. I suggest you to visit this place at least once even if you’re not Buddhist. It’s worth it to see around the place and enjoy the Zen vibe.

Around the temple, it’s already the Chinatown market which sells lots of cheap things and souvenirs.

Tips :

If you want to visit this place, for ladies I recommend to wear shirt / dress that can cover up your shoulder and also long skirt / pants. But if you wear sexy shirt like me last time also don’t worry because the temple provide a scarf to cover your body before you enter the temple.

Makansutra Glutton’s Bay – Singapore

Location : Raffles Ave

Rating : 5/10

Makansutra Glutton is a food centre located in Marina Bay, Singapore. It is usually crowded at night. There are quite a lot types of food there, hawker style.

I went there on January 2016 after I took a ride at Singapore Flyer. Actually I have spotted this place the day before and thought because it was quite crowded so maybe the food will be great.

But..

1451873588520Turn out the food sucks.

I ordered Fried Kwetiao for me and Hokkian Mee for my boyfriend. I forgot which stalls I ordered from. The fried kwetiao tasted better than the hokkian mee even though both tasted bad :’

They’re just plain, like you just mix the noodle and the ingredients with no salt, no sugar, no preservatives :’))

But thankfully I also ordered some chicken wings. I saw there was quite a Q so the taste must be good (again) 😀 The chicken wing cost SGD 1.5 each. I bought three. Tasted okay if you compared to the kwetiao goreng and hokkian mee, but still not spectacular enough to make me want it more and more.

Ah, but this place is quite cheap. So if you want to eat on budget maybe this is one place to consider, *if you don’t mind the taste tho :’D

Have you visited this place? What do you think? Any good food here to make me want to visit again? 😀
