Kampong Chai Chee Steamboat @ Punggol Settlement

Kampong Chai Chee Punggol steamboat

If you’re a fan of ‘battleship’ a.k.a. steamboat, Kampong Chai Chee has a steamboat set for 4 to 6 pax at only $29. Purchase your voucher via Fave / Groupon. This halal eatery has a few outlets in Singapore, but we picked the Punggol one as it’s pretty quiet – great for a chill Sunday dinner. The seafood platter for “4 to 6 pax” is the one you see above. I think it’s more suitable for 3 pax instead of, say, 6 people. 😉 Unless your friends are all supermodels who eat only salad greens.

I was a little worried about dining here as the reviews both on Groupon and facebook seemed to suggest that they were short of staff here, the food’s not the freshest, and there isn’t even any sauce to go with the steamboat.

Interestingly enough, besides the portion size, I don’t think we have any complaints about the food or service here!

As you can see, there’s chili sauce and even sliced green chili! It’s free flow so you can go ahead and take as much as you like. The chili sauce is very spicy (so shiok!), and tastes like really good chili sauce for chicken rice. Haha!

Kampong Chai Chee Punggol review

I thought the fish tasted ok, but my pal said there was a “fishy smell”. In any case, we’d cooked everything thoroughly so I don’t think anyone had a tummyache after the meal.

For the soup base, we chose chicken soup as we had a little kiddo dining with us. The other option was tom yum – too spicy for him. The chicken soup was delicious!

Not sure why there were only 3 eggs when it’s a seafood platter for 4 to 6 people, but my pals don’t eat eggs so… good for me and too bad for them. 😀

If you’d like a quiet venue for a meal with family or friends, and with a nice view to boot, pop by Punggol Settlement. It’s SO QUIET there these days. Even a seafood restaurant has folded, and I fear that many more eateries will follow suit. The place is a little out of the way, yes, and it’s more convenient if you drive. But there’s also a bus service which stops there. So take advantage of the promotions available and treat yourself to a good meal with a scenic view. 🙂 (I’ve reviewed Georges By The Bay previously)

*We paid an additional $4.30 for 3 plates of rice. Drinks are charged separately too. 😉
