Tsukada Nojo
SingPost Centre #01-136

Tsukada Nojo offers a taste of Japan’s beloved hotpot tradition with their specialty Bijin Nabe.

This dish, featuring the Golden Collagen Chicken Stock, is made by stewing chicken bones for over eight hours, resulting in a rich and flavourful broth that’s as nutritious as it is delicious.

The chickens, known as ‘Jitokko’, are organically raised on the restaurant’s own farm in Southern Kyushu, a testament to Tsukada Nojo’s commitment to fresh and healthy ingredients.

The Bijin Nabe is a customisable affair, with a choice of soup bases that range from the best-selling Original Collagen to variations like Sukiyaki, Tomato, Pumpkin, Spinach, White Miso Soy Milk, and Spicy.

A single flavour pot starts from $19, while a double flavour pot is at $30 onwards; and the best part is watching the collagen ‘melt’ into creamy soup.

Then select your preferred ingredients from sections like meat lovers, healthy selection, or the must-add-on to cook in the flavourful base.

Some recommended choices include Beef Combo ($28), Pork Combo ($25), or Meat Combo ($25), each offering a selection of meat.

Fresh vegetables, prawns, chicken and chicken meatballs can be added to the hotpot, creating a comforting-meets-satisfying meal.

The experience doesn’t end there as you also get to choose your preferred noodles to top off the nabe. From Beauty Noodle to Thick Mochi-Mochi noodles, Udon Noodles, and Zousui – a type of Japanese rice porridge, the options are ample and exciting.

PUTIEN
SingPost Centre #03-106

PUTIEN brings the unique flavours of Fujian Province cuisine to SingPost Centre. This restaurant chain with a Michelin star is known for its light yet flavourful, down-to-earth dishes, prepared with a focus on fresh ingredients.

A standout attraction at PUTIEN is the seasonal Duotou Clam dishes. Known as the “King of Clams,” these exceptional seafood offerings are sourced directly from the coastal town of Putian City in China.

These clams are uniquely nourished by minerals, organic matter, and brine algae present in the black mud, resulting in them growing up to an impressive 6 cm in length.

PUTIEN showcases these clams in nine different ways, each one highlighting a different aspect of the clam’s succulence.

The menu includes Salt-baked Duotou Clam, Claypot Duotou Clam with Basil, and Red Mushroom Duotou Clam Soup. Diners can also opt for Scrambled Egg with Duotou Clam or Stir-fried Spicy Duotou Clam.

One of my favourites is the Steamed Duotuo Clam with Minced Garlic. The half-shelled clams are lightly steamed to preserve their natural, briny flavour.

They are then topped with a generous minced garlic and spring onions, which enhances the freshness of the clams with aromatic notes. The dish is completed with a light drizzle of soy sauce, adding a savoury depth.

Lau Wang Claypot Delights
SingPost Centre #01-137/138

Lau Wang Claypot Delights 老王 is a former coffee-shop stall (I first reviewed them way back in 2013!) that now serves as a beacon for those seeking traditional claypot dishes.

Their method of preparing individual claypots for each dish ensures that the food is not only freshly cooked but also remains hot throughout the meal.

Loved their Sesame Chicken ($6.30) which is available in both spicy and non-spicy variants. The signature dish has tender, succulent chicken thigh meat bathed in a special black sauce recipe. Best to go with a bowl of rice.

This, paired with the homemade Ngoh Hiang ($6 for 2pcs), is an absolute must-try.

Their Sambal Seafood ($10.50) offers generous portions of fish slices, sotong, prawns, and ladies’ fingers in an addictive sauce, creating a dish that is as hearty as it is flavourful.

The Super Mala Chicken ($7.80) and Sliced Fish Herbal Soup ($7.30) cater to diverse palates, with the former delivering a fiery punch and the latter offering nourishing comfort.

The Salmon Belly options, both the regular and the Black Pepper variant, are sinfully decadent, melting in your mouth with each bite.
