Chicken Pot – Mini Hot Pot from Shanghai

Was walking around Compass One when I realised the western stall at the basement has been taken over by a new tenant – Chicken Pot. Priding itself as one that serves the most authentic hotpot in Singapore (I’m not quite sure about that honestly), this concept originated from Shanghai and has opened their 4th outlet in Singapore. There were a few tables taken during early dinner time and perhaps like me, were curious to find out what Chicken Pot has to offer

Their signature Chicken Pot – served on bone in a black pepper based broth. We had this non spicy but there was still an evident taste of black pepper in it. The broth was really salty, like way over salty. The chicken on bones was quite frustrating to eat, like I felt like there was more bone than chicken

Fish in A Pot $18.80 (small)

Catch of the day (Snapper of Grouper) which I had no idea what catch it was that day.  I thought the fish was decent and the portion generous. Laid on a bed of sichuan broth with more sichuan vegetables than other vegetables I could find, the result was a rather sourish broth towards the end. Perhaps they could have more cabbage than sichuan vegetables in the pot instead

Probably the most surprising dish of all. We had this really spicy which the chilli gave a nice kick in flavour. The prawns were deep fried to a crisp texture, laid on a bed of fries which work well together. The prawns were so good I thought they could rename their name to Prawn Pot instead

Overall, I thought there is room for improvement. Perhaps they could further adjust to adapt to the taste of the locals. Otherwise given the rather heavy flavour, I doubt our kidney would be able to take it
