Paradise on Earth, Tanjong Katong Road

House Special Beef with Satay and Scallop Broth

While I love Sichuan hot pot, I've never been a huge fan of local "steamboats" since the broth, sauce, and ingredients were usually a bit of a bore. But when it was suggested that we come here tonight (200 Tanjong Katong Road) due to some satay-based broth that they offered, I was intrigued. Did that mean that we were going to be dipping our food in some thick peanuty like stuff bubbling up from underneath?

Sorta. It obviously couldn't be that thick, so it was more of a thin stock with a bit of that peanut aroma. But aside from that, there was nothing really that exciting about this, as the taste got all covered up by the dipping sauce anyway...which in this case was a respectfully spicy Thai style one, but not one that I particularly used too much of either (I brought along a little bottle of Taiwanese sa cha sauce to use instead). Oh well. At least the fried rice was quite addictive with its smoky flavor.
