Xin Tian Fu Chuan Cai, Tanjong Pagar

Sichuan hot pot

Here's another one of those many Sichuan hot pot places that have been popping up lately (130 Tanjong Pagar Road, 6227-1266). Unfortunately this one was generally forgettable. While the spices in the broth were reasonably authentic, everything still somehow turned out rather tasteless, no matter what kind of condiments we tried applying. More importantly, the ingredients were a letdown, both in terms of selection as well as the quality. It got better when they brought out a second round of beef later, but in the end, this wasn't anything to draw us back right away. I wonder if their a la carte dishes are any better.
