Cheap Hotpot Buffets Under $30 in Singapore

profileHui Juan Neo
Source: Tenor

In Singapore, we usually have hotpot (aka steamboat or shabu shabu) at social gatherings like Chinese New Year.

If you didn’t prepare the food at home, you’ve probably ordered hotpot delivery sets.

Hai Di Lao and Beauty In The Pot are two restaurants that are known for their soup bases and exceptional services.

But, they can be expensive. Based on personal experiences, my trips to those restaurants cost me about $45 each time.

If you don’t feel like paying that much, we’ve compiled a list of hotpots below $30 per person so that you can get quality and quantity!

And if you feel like eating alone, we have places that serve single hotpots too.

Hao Lai Wu

Hao Lai Wu is a restaurant that allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds – Barbeque (BBQ) and steamboat.

Unlike usual hotpots, their hotpots come in the form of a crystal pot to prevent you from getting burned, and their smokeless grill allows you to leave the restaurant without smelling like the BBQ.

This means that you won’t have a film of oil on your skin!

The restaurant also provides a special egg roll upon request and could be a good appetiser before you dive into BBQ or steamboat.

Paying Your Bill With A Credit Card

If you’ve not been using a credit card to foot your bill, you’re missing out on cashback, rewards or miles.

Personally, I’d choose a cashback card simply because I have low monthly spending and I liked the idea that I can save while I’m spending.

There are credit cards suitable for dining out and if you’re unsure which one to use, hop over to our friendly Seedly Community to ask questions!

If not, you can also visit our product review page to see what others have said regarding the card that you’re interested in.

Lastly, make sure you know how to eat your money’s worth at a buffet, before going for one!
