Given all the recent hype over high-end steamboats coupled with impeccable service, here’s one steamboat restaurant that does quite the same sans the crowds and long waiting time. Tang(唐) restaurant is one of those hole-in-the-wall dining venues located along Keong Saik, which may be easy to miss if you’re not observant enough. However, upon entering the restaurant, you’ll be taken into a well-furnished space, complete with contemporary furniture and oriental décor.

Even more enticing is the idea of having an exclusive, private dining space to enjoy a heart-warming steamboat away from the bustle and crowds. Prices at Tang are also reasonable, with MSG-free soup bases starting from SGD 18 and ingredients starting from as low as SGD 4. Tang is truly a hidden gem when it comes to scoring premium dining experiences with quality ingredients, making it an ideal and comfortable environment for family occasions or small gatherings with friends.

Beyond its steamboat offerings, Tang also offers a variety of specialties on its menu including cooked food, small bites and wine bar arrangements.

We were invited to try Tang’s steamboat experience, and were offered the Combination Pot with Two Soups (SGD 21+). With the option of three types of soup broth bases – the popular House Special (SGD 19+), Authentic Sichuan Spicy Soup (SGD 21+), and Tomato Soup (SGD 18+), the Combination Pot with Two Soups option is definitely more value-for-money.

We had the signature Authentic Sichuan Spicy Soup and the Tomato Soup for our soup bases, and both paired well with most ingredients.

For those who love the numbing feeling that comes with “Ma-la”, you will definitely love the Authentic Sichuan Spicy Soup base. Created from over 40 different spices and herbs, this soup base is definitely on the spicier side, but offers much mouth-watering pleasure at the same time.

The Tomato Soup on the other hand makes a subtle yet flavourful option that is often a favourite choice among the ladies. This would be a good choice for those who can’t handle spicy food as well.

Here are some of the ingredients that we tried:

Signatures

Translucent Sliced Fish (12 slices)

A must-have for all steamboats is none other than the slippery, Translucent Sliced Fish (SGD 22+) that is best cooked in the Sichuan spicy soup base. The fish is served in slices of 12, and are fresh and tender.

Shrimp Paste Dome

Meticulously hand-grinded to ensure just the right texture, the Shrimp Paste Dome ($14+) is yet another must-try at Tang.

Meat

Australia Wagyu Striploin ($39+/200g, $21+/100g)

Spanish Iberico Pork

With a variety of premium meats to choose from, be sure to order their Australia Wagyu Striploin (SGD 39+/200g, SGD 21+/100g) and Spanish Iberico Pork (SGD 25+/200g, SGD 14+/100g). Other meats include the Momoiro Pork Belly (SGD 27+, 200g / SGD 15+, 100g) and the A4 Japanese Umami Wagyu Beef (SGD 69+, 200g / SGD 36+, 100g), which are all at the highest grade. All meats are thinly sliced to ensure maximum absorption of the tasty soup broths, and for easy and quick cooking.

A la carte dishes

Sichuan Dandan Noodles

Szechuan Dan Dan Noodles

For something homely and flavourful, these Sichuan Dandan noodles (SGD 5+) make a good carb option that is light enough to complement the steamboat ingredients. Topped with generous amounts of savoury minced meat, the mouth-watering Dandan noodles will leave you yearning for.

Dumplings in Sichuan Sauce

Dumplings in Szechuan Sauce

For more Sichuan goodness, these Dumplings (SGD 5+) may look intimidating with that fiery red chilli oil sauce but they’re really quite manageable – and delicious too.

Vegetarian options are available as well and include a variety of mushrooms (from SGD 4+), assorted bean products (from SGD 4+) and various vegetables (from SGD 4+).

To pair all of these dishes, Tang’s Chef Zoubing has crafted a range of sauces with his own special recipes: chilli, garlic and black bean sauces. All of them are freshly made and go well with the steamboat ingredients. An attentive member of the Tang family will also be assigned to every table to serve and assist you in cooking the steamboat ingredients within the correct timing. As there are only limited quantities of each menu item everyday, it is recommended to make advanced reservations or arrive early.

Bar

Last but not least, be sure to complete your hotpot experience with some of Tang’s carefully curated selection of wines and assortment of champagnes and whiskies.

For a quiet indulgent meal with loved ones, drop by Tang restaurant for a premium steamboat experience that will certainly warm your heart.

Tang is located at 25 Keong Saik Road, Singapore 089132. For more information, visit their Facebook page.
