After feasting our eyes with thousands of lovely tulips at Tulipmania, it's time to fuel the body with scrumptious food. We took MRT to Lavender station and a brief 3mins walk to the Aperia mall. The steamboat buffet restaurant is located at level 1 of the mall.
The chinese restaurant has a bright and spacious layout, dark colored tables has build-in induction cookers. Steamboat Buffet is priced at $19.80++ per adult, $10.80++ per child. Patrons gets their own individual hotpot and 6 soup bases to choose from (Chicken, Tom Yum, Seafood, Tomato, Old cucumber pork rib & Mala spicy soup).
All food are ordered via a tablet ordering system apart from the Drinks, Fruits and Condiments & Sauces which we can help ourselves with at the counter. Mini Cornetto ice cream is included in the buffet price, limited to one per pax.
|Soft drinks, Can drinks & Mineral water.|
Hubby picked the Tomato soup while I had the Old Cucumber Pork Ribs soup. Both soup bases were served bland so that it can gradually gain flavors from cooking the ingredients without becoming too salty towards the end.
There are a lot of raw and cooked food choices to pick from on the tablet's menu. Unlimited serving of shabu sliced Pork/Beef/Mutton, fresh seafood, assortment of meat balls, handmade dumplings, fresh veggies & tofu and cooked food like fried rice & noodles.
The ingredients were really fresh and of decent quality, serving portion was smallish but can be ordered unlimited times, except for the scallops which is limited to one serving per pax. My personal fave are the Lobster balls, handmade dumplings, shabu pork belly and lotus roots.
We were filled to the brim after a couple of rounds of orders, no space to even have fruits. So we decided to finish off the meal with the mini Cornettos...yums.
Juan Dong Ji is definitely highly recommended for its good variety and great quality food, coupled with extremely pocket friendly prices. It is pretty hard to find a steamboat buffet restaurant that is air-conditioned and have unlimited meat and seafood offerings like this one. Go give it a try if you are around the vicinity.
