About Street 50 Restaurant & Bar

 

There aren’t many kitchens in Singapore that boast flavours ranging from from Italian, French and American, to Vietnamese, Indonesian and Singaporean. One such kitchen is at Street 50 Restaurant and Bar, located in Bay Hotel just outside of Sentosa. 

With its hotpot buffet proving a hit with customers, Street 50 is extending the buffet timing from 6.30pm to 2am on Fridays and Saturdays. With supper being the most important meal of the day (night) to us owls, we had to give this a shot!

 

Hotpot Time!

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_8712.JPGWe got the $50 for 2 Pax Promotion Set, which was a hotpot set for two, with 10 cans of mini Asahi Super Dry Beers – the glasses provided are miniature too. We went with Siamese Luck Tom Yam soup, and the Imperial Chicken soup for the soup bases. b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_8697.JPGI really liked that we had two separate hotpots so you can get the best of both worlds and sample both broths. With your personal pot, it’ll be easier for you to fish out your ingredients as well! b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_8710.JPGOn to the ingredients! The Meat Platter had shabu-shabu beef, pork fillet, sliced chicken, pork liver and more, while the Seafood Platter had items like squid, white clams, flower crabs and red prawns.b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_8728.JPG There was also a Vegetable Platter, a Yong Tao Foo Platter, and a Noodles and Rice Platter. In particular, I felt the ingredients that deserved special mention were the black fungus from the vegetable platter, the fish paste, and the glass noodles. b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_8719.JPGThey soaked up the tom yam soup nicely, complementing the original taste of the ingredients with tom yum’s spicy sourness. The squid was was also worth mentioning – it was easy to chew and didn’t have the rubbery, choking quality that squids often have. b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_8733.JPGWhile the freshness and taste of the ingredients are important, it is the stock that make or break the meal. The Tom Yam soup did not disappoint, it was thick and flavourful, with the right mix of tangy and spicy, and a hint of sweetness. The Imperial Chicken soup is ideal if you prefer something clear and light.b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_8691.JPGAnother thing that I appreciated was the huge amount of sauces and dips they had available. From sesame paste to fermented beans, garlic chilli and more, they had 12 different kinds for you to flavour your soup with.While the soup is good enough without you adding these, if the ingredients have yet to absorb enough flavour, the sauces will come in handy. b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_8695.JPGYou don’t have to worry about finishing your soup too fast, because servers are constantly making rounds with the jugs in hand to top up your perfectly instagramable oriental styled pots.

 

Verdict

 

With the freshness of the ingredients and the flavourful broths, this is one of the better hotpot restaurants I’ve been to. Street 50 Restaurant & Bar extended their hotpot buffet hours from 6.30pm- 2am, so those who want a satisfying supper after their late night movie at VivoCity can head here.

Take note though, that the hotpot is only available from Fridays to Sundays.
