Chaoniu 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 HAVCE A READ if you don’t. This is our absolute #1 favourite hot pot joint in Singapore. This is Chaoniu Hot Pot @ Katong. It is just fricking 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 #foodstoopid #hotpotmissingout – 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.

These guys are located in Katong at 195 East Coast Road. Bell them at 6909 8783. 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 Chaoniu Hot Pot @ Katong. Get 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. It’s pissing easy by the way!!!

Check these little platters out. Just an amazing array of cuts of moo-cow. We had flank, neck, sirloin, chuck, and, and. Freshly sliced every day, there is nothing frozen here folks. Super tender and massive on the flavour front, especially once cooked in their special secret broth. That takes about 5 seconds by the way as this meat is super thin. F@ck I love this place. It don’t get any better folks – especially when washed down with an icy cold Tiger too. HEAVENLY.

I found this new App that allows you to record from both front and back cameras on your iPhone, so I have attempted my 1st VLOG. Be proud Chaoniu Hot Pot @ Katong you are the 1st restaurant to get this 1st attempt. And be proud of me for trying. The kids had to help me though, of course, haha. #technophobe.

This is their signature broth bubbling away vigorously. If only you could smell this. It’s intense beef. The stock has likely been bubbling away for days as within it you find little lumps of fall-apart meat and the occasional piece of tripe that is like butter. Super soft means low and slow cooking and intensified flavour. You can just tell this has been going forever. Every now and then one of the staff comes and tops up the stock from a huge kettle full of the nectar.

1st time ever to eat Asparagus Lettuce. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I got this pic from our mates at Google. It looks so much like Wasabi I think. Super tasty vegetable though, especially as it is cooked in the signature beef broth – blimey Charlie. What a cracking new find. loved it. Man, I have I had a vegetable fest this weekend.

See what I mean about the decor? It’s uber-cool. Images like my Tattoo adorn the bare concrete walls with artwork of cows everywhere. It’s like New York urban loft hot pot. I really love it here. I could sit here all day, and we nearly did actually with our usual 1st in last out position for lunch. Hey, you have to take your time and enjoy, right?

Come on you have to agree this is on very cool restaurant interior. When wifey and I build our restaurant in the Philippines it really is not going to be far away from this. My tattoos will be on the wall, and we will have Mookata style BBQ devices on the table. One difference is that we’ll be doing al la carte cooking as well in a circular open-kitchen in the middle of the restaurant if guests want me to cook and watch me cooking their food.

In closing, I will say it again. Chaoniu Hot Pot @ Katong is the best hotpot I have ever had without a doubt. You have to try once, and I guarantee you will then be hooked, as we are. It has all the right ingredients of a perfect restaurant. The look, the ambience, the staff and of course the food. Bloody brilliant lunch here, yet again. Be proud guys, you continue to knock it out of the park. Folks, get your bums on a bus or in a Grab and get yourself in here to ex0lore what we did today. You’re gonna love it, I just know it – ENJOY!!!
