Things we enjoyed:
The Flaming Drunken Chicken Broth with Moutai (limited time & only at this outlet) – Robust flavours of chicken & herbal components.
The Moutai has a savoury taste. The way it’s served is a spectacle: the restaurant staff will pour some into a ladle and light it on fire, before pouring it into the broth.
Unicorn-themed ice cream (limited time & only at this outlet) – Subtle flavours of minty bubblegum. The texture was smooth, and it was not overly sweet.
Things we didn’t’ enjoy:
For foodies looking to capture pictures to post on social media – the lighting makes it just a tad hard to capture the pastel interiors on camera
Local hotpot chain Beauty In the Pot is adding a touch of fantasy to its latest outlet at NEX. To celebrate its opening, the restaurant has been decked out in a Magial Unicorn Wonderland theme, and diners can look forward to a new hotpot broth as well as unicorn-coloured ice cream to complete the experience.
The new hotpot broth flavour, aptlly called the Flaming Mountain Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth ($22++, or twin pots at $12++) to fit in with the fantasy theme, is available at the NEX outlet for a limited time only. Order this and you will be in for a visual treat: Moutai is type of Chinese liquor, and before adding it to the broth, the restaurant staff will pour some into a ladle and set it alight. The flaming Moutai is then stirred into the pot.
Not only is this new broth a spectacle to behind, it is really tasty as well. We like the rich flavours of the chicken and herbal ingredients.The savoury taste of the Moutai really brings out the taste of the other broth ingredients, and is a must-try as the flavours bode well together.
Aside from the new broth, we also got to try some of the restaurant’s new premium ingredients. The Ebiko Prawn paste ($18.90) had a nice prawn flavour with a springy texture while adding a nice textural element to the dish. Go for this if you love seafood.
Meanwhile, the Fried Beancurd Skin ($5.40/half portion; $10.80/full portion) was crispy, making it satisfying to munch on. Other new premium item additions include US Wagyu, the Signature Homemade Fish Tofu ($2.40/ a piece), dumplings, and scallops.
To round of your meal, the restaurant is offering a unicorn-coloured ice cream from 5 October 2020 onwards, while stocks last.
We were curious what this fabulously-coloured ice cream tastes like, and were pleasantly surprised that it’s a minty-bubblegum flavour. Creamy and smooth yet not too sweet, this limited-time-only ice cream is an ideal finishing touch for all diners- young and old. And of course, perfect for the ‘gram.
While you are enjoying your meal, there are also fun activities.
One of the different activities include posting a photo of you and your fellow diners on social media platforms from 5 Oct to 20 Oct with #BITPNEX and #Paradisegrpsg, to stand a chance to win a $100 Paradise Group dining voucher.
Up to seven winners will be selected to celebrate the inauguration of this outlet.
Those celebrating their birthdays at Beauty in The Pot from 17 October 2020 and beyond will receive a special gift (expected to be something large in size) from the restaurant, while stocks last.
