Finally gotten myself a desktop to work on my articles and pictorials. Having quite a few places to recommend and to share with you all. And let us continue with my food blog on yet another buffet treat.
There is always a craving for steamboat buffets even in a hot and humid Singapore. We have so many varieties over the years and you can really find so many different styles from Japanese which is one of my favourite to Chinese SiChuan style. on this article, I would like to share with you this lovely steamboat place, Coca steamboat, where you can have Ala-carte Thai-style “Suki”
On the web or maybe in the restaurant, you might be guided on “how to fully enjoy” the true Thai-style Suki Steamboat. but honestly speaking, I feel that you should just follow how you would want to enjoy it yourself. this Ala-carte steamboat buffet first starts off with a set of vegetables and a small portion of meat. You might want to consider to inform the serving crew of your preference of food (especially if you’re a carnivore).
The food served are fresh but there is a limited choice of food available and of you’re looking for thinly sliced beef, I would not suggest you to order the beef on the buffet menu. You can however order it separately and i think they have quite a variety of meats available for additional orders. Sometimes when have steamboat, we would casually just dump everything into the hot boiling soup but here at Coca, they can help you “start up” the first round of food and put them in accordingly so that the food cooks perfectly all at the same time.
Oh I forgot about the soup base, there is a few choices to choose from. Similar to many other steamboat places, you can choose up to 2 bases to enjoy. I wouldn't say the soup is fantastic, but I definitely enjoyed drinking it after a few rounds of seafood and meat boiling in it.
The seafood is fresh and of course crunchy vegetables. Just a reminder, you might not be able to find crab sticks or some basic ingredients for your steamboat here. In fact, Coca focuses more on the higher quality range of food like fish glue, cuttlefish, sotong balls, prawns and poultry.
With the amount that you have to pay, you can expect good service, fresh food and of course, get a great company to enjoy this wonderful meal! Give it a try and let me know what you think of and gosh I’m craving for steamboat again! (Maybe a Japanese style this time)
