Beauty In The Pot – NEW Outlet At Centrepoint, Opens Till 6am, 4 Soup Bases In One Pot
Beauty In The Pot by Paradise Group has opened a NEW outlet at The Centrepoint, which is really in the heart of Orchard.
The good news is, the hotpot restaurant opens till 6am.
Is it time to jio those midnight owl friends for ‘beauty’ pot suppers?
Before I continue, I am writing this piece with mixed feelings. While I still like the food and soup bases, there were some unsatisfactory incidents that happened with the service – which I choose not to elaborate further here.
I have given the appropriate feedback, and believe the team will take the necessary action to remedy and improve service standards for customers.
A friend did ask me why I even bothered to write in – I could have posted on social media and let it go viral.
However, I do not think that would not solve the problem. My reply was, ”If I didn’t even care, I could choose to ignore. But coming from a customer’s point of view, I cared enough.”
Back to Beauty In The Pot at The Centrepoint, the restaurant boosts of a larger seating with 3 private rooms that can be connected.
For parents who want to eat in peace, good to know that there is a children’s play area for the little ones.
On top of the 2 signature broths of Beauty Collagen Broth and Pork Bone Soup offered at the Beauty In The Pot OneKM Mall outlet, there are 4 new soup bases – Longevity Wild Pine Mushroom Broth (Vegetarian), Cooling Coconut Broth, Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth and Vitamin C Tomato Sweet Corn Broth.
The soup pot comes in single, twin and quart pot.
If you come in a bigger group, the quart pot which offer 4 different bases make sense if you would like a variety. For a quart pot, each soup base would cost from $5 to $9.
My personal favourite is still the Beauty Collagen Broth cooked with shark’s cartilage which was smooth, milky and tasty, yet not overly salty.
This base generally would work well with meat, seafood and vegetables added in.
The group also ordered Coconut Broth as this was the most interesting of them all. My recommendation would be to complement this with seafood and vegetables, as too much meat could eventually mask off the light coconut taste.
I also realised that the tomato broth was sweeter and lighter than competitor’s Hai Di Lao – which was more robust and appetising overall.
The ‘handsome boy’ service staff who served us was generally prompt, and made suitable recommendations. Though the restaurant overall, was visibly short-handed, and thus food could take A WHILE to come.
Ah yes, if you are wondering… ”Daniel ordered so much ah?!”
It was because I waited for soooooooo long (like one hour), I told my friend ”Just order everything.” For an estimation, each person could be expected to pay before $60 – $80. (Of course depending on what you order.)
To be fair, Beauty In The Pot uses good quality cuts of meats, so consider that a premium to pay.
For those intending to make a reservation, I tried to and it was almost impossible to call through.
They are possibly full for the next few weeks, and going down personally to make a 10:30pm offpeak reservation, could be your safest bet. Until they figured something out.
