Incredible Chao Niu Hot Pot at Dua Galleria, 2023 review update
Chao Niu Hot Pot; We have not been since Covid, and since they moved. Yes, they are no more Katong, they are now Duo Galleria. An uber cool new location for Chao Niu Hot Pot, close to the bustling Haji Lane. It’s on the ground floor with some rather cool neighbours and a stone’s throw from MRT.
Location location, location; Chao Niu Hot Pot new location at Duo Galleria
They’ve gone much more up-market now with the interior now at Chao Niu Hot Pot. I imagine they took this over from a previous tenant because the bar inside is not conducive to a hot pot I’d say unless they are trying to be a bar and bistro style.
A spanking new interior at Chao Niu Hot Pot Duo Galleria
See what I mean? You need a table to put the hot pot on, so why the bar? Still, it is a cracking interior now at Chao Niu Hot Pot, with much more room and new options on the menu.
I’ve seen a tattoo like that somewhere… That used to be on their menu when at Katong, but now all replaced with online versions.
Loving the new look, including the bar area. Very nice ChaoNiu.
This stunning painting you can own for $18,888. Ouch!!!
And now to the incredible food at Chao Niu Hot Pot
We massively over-ordered, as usual. The meats range from $15-$22, the more expensive options being beef tongue @$25, and Flankat $22. We paid extra as well, $15, for the Beauty Collagen Broth because that is knockout on the flavour front. We also ordered the incredible Roll Ring Bean Curd at $3.80. You throw these in the broth, count slowly to five and they’ll be perfectly cooked.
My other favourite addition is Asparagus Lettuce at $5. That is one delicious vegetable that I have only ever had at Chao Niu. Another must-try at Chao Niu Hot Pot is Knife Sliced Noodles, at $3.90.
Chao Niu Hot Pot deep-fried crispy beef. An absolute stunner and a new one on the menu.
I wonder why we rate this as our favourite, and best hot pot in Singapore.
Another new one on the Chao Nio Hot Pot Menu 2023, is deep-fried mushrooms. Boomski!!!
Chao Niu Hot Pot @ Katong
Back on 20th May 2019 we visited here for the 1st time, and have been back many times since. Remember that 1st blog?
Well, CLICK HERE TO HAVE A READ if you don’t. This is our absolute #1 favourite hot pot joint in Singapore. This is Chao Niu Hot Pot @ Katong. It is just awesome. The decor, the way you eat, the staff, the freshness of the meats, the sauces that are made for you, the sauces that you can concoct yourself, the stocks, the EVERYTHING. If you have not been yet then you are just missing out. This really is a MUST-TRY. We came back today after a suggestion from wifey and in unison, we all shouted YES!!! What a great suggestion by wifey and a very happy family before, during and after lunch today.
It really is SO GOOD here it deserves another blog mention, and my 1st VLOG is for them too.

If any fancies doing a big family dinner gives us a shout and we’ll show you the ropes as you can do DIY cooking or the very helpful staff will help you out. I, of course, love the DIY cooking option at Chao Niu Hot Pot @ Katong. Getting yourself involved is a big recommendation, get that little strainer and cook your own meats. It’s really good fun actually and I am sure it will give a certain level of self-satisfaction to have cooked your own meal.
