[Closing] JPOT at Tampines 1 mall has announced is impending closure, its last day of operations to be on the 16th of June (Sun).
Previously, JPOT has other branches at VivoCity and Parkway Parade, but they have both closed in the last 2 years.
As a farewell special, the JPOT team has launched a new Mala Soup base, to be paired with a Vegetable and Mushroom Platter at $8.80++ for an individual hotpot serving.
JPOT is one of the multi-brands under Singapore-based Jumbo Group.
As a form of gratitude to supporters, JUMBO Rewards members with a dining group of four or more persons at JPOT will also receive a complimentary hand-made Jumbo Pork Ball to relish with their hotpot.
JPOT offers its own unique version of the hotpot tradition with individual hotpots, but somehow the restaurant has not really crossed my radar in the recent few years.
One word to describe JPot’s selling point is “personalization”, offer diners Singapore-style soup bases in their own individual hotpots.
Soup bases include Chilli Crab, JPOT Superior Broth, Herbal Soup, Bak Kut The, Fish Head Soup, Fish Head Soup with Brandy, Laksa, Tom Yum, and Vegetarian Soup.
For the soup base, what was recommended was the signature JPOT Superior Broth Soup ($6.80 solo/$14.80 large).
However, during my recent visit, my dining partner thought that flavours could be been richer.
The best bet could be the Laksa broth, which was like the gravy of our popular local dish, without that much oiliness and ‘coconuty’-richness.
If you order ala carte, the choices include Local Lobster ($12.80/100g), Boston lobster ($10.80/100g), Crab ($21.80/300g), Geoduck Clam ($15.80/100g or $48.00/plate), Star Garoupa ($8.80/100g), Garoupa ($42.80), Prawns ($11.80). But if you can’t choose, go for the Seafood Platter ($58.80).
Recommended meats are Sliced Wagyu Ribeye ($24.80), Sliced Premium Beef Short Rib ($14.80), Hand-made Chicken Balls ($5.80), Sliced Kurobota Pork ($11.80), Hand-made Jumbo Pork Ball ($5.80), Hand-made Cheese Pork Balls ($5.80), and Marinated Pork ($4.80).
Some slices of meats come with a raw quail egg. Break and add it to the meat to make it smoother when you cook them.
For some local delights, order the Sotong You Tiao, Fried Bean Curd Skin ($6.80) and Fried Fish Skin ($6.80).
