Qi Xiang Hot Pot at The Chevrons is the same team from Qi Xiang Chicken Pot in Kovan. They are known for its unique beer-infused chicken pots. For this new hotpot restaurant, they uses traditional claypots with yuan yang claypot options. The best part is that it is open till 3am daily. Time for late night supper!
There are 4 types of broth base to choose from including:
1. Signature Broth S$31.90 for full or S$24.90 half pot
2. Pumpkin Soup S$29.90 for full or half pot
3. Green Pepper Sauerkraut Dory Fish Pot S$37.90 for full pot or S$20.80 for half pot
4. Qi Xiang Hotpot’s Famed Boiled Chicken S$9.90 for half chicken or quarter thigh meat options, S$15.90 for whole chicken.
The staff recommended us to try Signature Broth and Pumpkin Soup. We heed the advice and chose the recommended base. We had the Signature Broth with added boiled chicken into it. As for the Pumpkin soup, it takes more than 5 hours to be ready and is said to be rich in chicken and pork collagen. The broth tasted rich, creamy and sweetness in it.
They also let us try a small bowl of Green Pepper Sauerkraut Dory Fish broth. The broth cooked with herbaceous peppercorns, ginger, sour mustard leaves, and laced with chili oil. We liked this version that gives a nice punch in flavour and peppercorn aroma. It is quite appetizing too.
There are over 80 delectable hotpot ingredients in the menu such as premium meat like Australian Wagyu Beef ( S$49.90 for full portion, S$24,90 for half portion) , Seafood Items, Vegetables and Mushrooms. Here are some of the ingredients we had during the hotpot session.
As for cooked food, we tried the improvised version of XO Homemade Carrot Cake S$10.90, Smoked Infused Duck Breast Braised in Szechuan Sauce S$22.90, Prawn Pizza S$9.90. The carrot cake is simply addictive with crispy morsel and crispy egg bits, beansprouts and spring onions. And of course the XO sauce to finish off.
The Smoked Infused Duck Breast Braised in Szechuan Sauce has been R&D for 8 months before they finalized and served in the menu. The dish is prepared with braised, sous-vide, then tea smoked with house-made Szechuan sauce. Thus, this explains why each slice are succulent tender and umami in flavour.
As for the Prawn Pizza, well-executed and you can taste the bits of the prawns in it.
With S$5 per pax, diners can enjoy free-flow drinks, fruits, and condiments. The staff will push the trolley full of condiments’ ingredients to your table for you to pick and choose. It is either you DIY or you get their in-house special chili sauce, which is quite fiery hot. Even my friend who takes spicy can feel the heat.
