LEGIT cannot contain my excitement because one of my favourite steamboat restaurant – Hai Xian Lao (海鲜捞) has opened their second outlet in town. Nestled on the 4th level of Shaw House (taking over the space by Joyden Concept previously), you can now enjoy quality steamboat without breaking the bank. If you’ve been following my post on Hai Xian Lao’s first outlet at Wilkie Edge, you would have already know that they are famed for their HUGE selection of soup bases such as Prawn, Laksa, Beauty Collagen, Herbal and many more! This time round, I FINALLY tried their Herbal broth and it was 👍🏻 🤤

Brought my mum (cos she’s a HUGE fan too) to the new outlet and well, she couldn’t stop singing praises of it. And she was eating way more than usual. We definitely walked out the restaurant with a very satisfying stomach. Can’t wait to check it out yourself? Remember to save your time and hassle  by making a reservation via www.quandoo.sg! Also, with Chinese New Year in 2 weeks time, you can seriously consider having a reunion dinner at Hai Xian Lao!

As usual, we got ourselves 3 different soups – Herbal, Beauty Collagen and the popular Prawn broth! And as you can see from the picture, we also ordered a table full of ingredients! Super shiok!

Let’s start with some healthy greens first! Hai Xian Lao has a decent selection and yes, I’m eyeing all the mushrooms. Goes really well with the herbal broth! My mum was tackling all the veggies throughout our steamboat!

How can you not order Fried Beancurd at any steamboat? Dip them in and count to 10, that’s how you supposed to eat it! So good my mum finished all 8 of them!

Not a HUGE fan of innards but if you love them, you should probably order them!

Seafood-lovers can also satisfy their cravings with a myriad of fresh seafood selection! The king crab was really FRESH and the meat was so sweet!

Hmm loving the pork belly and pork collar! Thinly sliced and served in generous portion!

The last dish was this perfectly fried pork cutlet. It was crispy, flavourful and not too oily!
