So I did return one fine evening when Pookie wanted to meet for dinner. And we had the steamboat!
This was the portion for two people. I like the rather generous plate of veggies which is rare in Singapore. There was a good mix of everything from beef, pork, fish, squid, prawns, fishballs, pork liver to eggs. The soup stock was light and chicken-flavoured with just a few drops of shallot oil. But it gained strength and intensity as dinner progressed.
I like the beef slices (I am guessing flank) here. They were plenty (yay!), thick and tenderised just a little to give them a smoother feel. The marinate was also tasty with sesame oil and, I think, soy sauce. Simple flavours that complemented the beefy taste of the meat.
Because Pookie had not tried the chicken rice there and we were
Now I realised I missed out their seafood horfun which Ice recommended to try. Dang. Looks like another visit is on the cards. Moohehehe.
Total price for two for the steamboat, one person's portion of chicken and a bottle of Tiger was about $30. Definitely accessible and a good change from turkey season.

Chew On This: I don't eat pork liver but love drinking liver soup! So I made some by ladling hot soup into a bowl of raw liver and mashed it with my chopsticks. Let it sit for a bit and ta-da! Instant liver soup! LOL.
