"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Chong Qing No. 1 Steamboat

My cousin, brother and I visited this steamboat place in Chinatown yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised by the staff and freshness of food. It has two levels of air-conditioned tables and a few tables outisde the shop. When you entered, the staff will ask if you want bbq or steamboat. So far, every diner was having steamboat. You can choose between the Tom Yum, Ma La or Herbal broth.

There was a good variety of food to choose from. Besides the usual crab sticks, frozen balls, hot dogs, there were pig’s liver, pig’s stomach, mutton, shabu-shabu beef slices, pork, luncheon meat, handmade pork balls and handmade wanton! They were all so fresh!! I don’t usually eat flower crabs during steamboat, but their flower crabs were so fresh and meaty! The meat was not the mushy type. There was also cooked food – chicken wings, fried man tou, pickles, pig’s tongue and some other China appetizers.

Add $2 for free flow of drinks. However there is only two types to choose from. We paid $20 nett for our buffet. There are no service or GST charges. Visit this place for really value for money buffet steamboat!!!
