If you are looking for cheap steamboat, read on for my tip on how to make your money worth at Shi Li Fang hotpot restaurant or read my review on another affordable hotpot restaurant, known as Pot Addiction that is located at Sembawang.
Always ask for the Shi Li Fang’s Set Meal Menu
Shi Li Fang hot pot restaurant have two menus, 1 is the ala carte hot pot menu and the other is the set meal hotpot menu. The first time we went, they offered us the ala carte menu instead. But after doing some research, I realised that it is more worth it if we have ordered from the set meal menu! Damnnn!
Shi Li Fang’s Seafood and Meat Ala Carte Menu
Shi Li Fang offers the meat and seafood in normal portion and half portion for you to choose from.
We ordered Japanese kurobuta pork, shi li fang pork tenderloin, shilifang specialty beef, superior lamb slice, shi li fang specialty chicken, and cheese tofu that came in cute heart shapes. Got ourselves the prawn & fish roe paste as well.
In my opinion, after ordering both the full portion and half portion. I recommend to always order the full portion as the half portion is a tad too small.
In my opinion, the half portion is too small. Just opt for the full portion.
Our other portions of the beef that was nicely sliced.
Shi Li Fang’s Soup Base Menu
We ordered 4 soup bases, Shi Li Fang’s specialty mala soup at level 1 spiciness, it turned out pretty good, not too mild, just nice!
We ordered the ravishing tomato soup, tasty mushroom soup and the japanese style pork bone soup.
The mushroom soup base was quite nice though bland at the start. But after cooking some ingredients, it became very flavourful. Mala was the hot favourite as usual.
The pork bone soup was super yummy from the start, even without cooking any ingredients in it. I found myself helping myself to the pork bone soup often. ( I’m usually not a soup person but it was too good that I couldn’t resist).
We ordered mostly meat and some golden mushroom. The total bill came up to be about $34/35 per pax.
Shi Li Fang’s Ala Carte Vegetable Menu
So because we ordered ala carte, for vegetables, we had sweet potato vermicelli, oyster mushroom, lotus root, chinese cabbage, tang oh, and some handmade noodle.
For the handmade noodle, they did a small performance just like Hai Di Lao style. But i think this differs per outlet. Some outlets, they just prepare the noodle without any performance. I think it’s really going the fuss free style. Or maybe it’s because they know we are locals, not foreigners.
More worth it to order chicken/pork set meal
The second time, we learnt the tactic and ordered from the set meal menu, but we ordered the mussels 3 person menu. And again, the dishes felt a little too little. Then I realised that it’s because we ordered the seafood.
Had we ordered the set meal for 3 pax(without Beef and Lamb), we would have gotten the following:
Japanese kurobuta pork + pork belly + shilifang pork tenderloin+shilifang specialty chicken + crispy pork
When we ordered the seafood 3 person menu, we got:
Superior chicken slice + superior marbled pork slice + prawn + mussel. And the best part is, only one person out of the 3 of us eats mussel. So it was a bit of a waste. But we ordered 3 Vegetable Platter C.
