This is about the most value for money steamboat I've tried before.
There are 2 branches which are located just a few shops apart. The orange colour themed branch seems to be the more popular choice which I supposed was due to the atmosphere and the fact that its newer.
Variety was wide. but only limited to a portion of the menu if you order buffet. There are about 5 types of soup base and you can choose a max of 2. We chose the satay and scallop soup base. Satay was so so though it was said to be the more popular choice there. Though I felt its more like because Satay wasn't so common at other steamboat eateries. A bit spicy and full of peanut taste. Scallop based soup taste great enough without cooking the ingredients. Soup base not too salty so we don't feel uneasy after eating a lot which should be the case for steamboat soup base.
Foodstuffs fresh and in "happy" portions (lolx). Though I don't eat prawns but my friends commented that the prawns were very fresh and they ordered 5 plates of them. The "tou kee" was fresh and chewy without the oily smell that tou kee at many places have. They also have items like Golden mushroom, fish slices, fish paste, all kinds of meat and vegetables, cutter fish, prawns and "hum".
Drinks not free, we ordered the home made lime juice @ $6 per jug which was about just right for 5 pax. This drink is real good~ Must try~~ The taste of lime is very distinctive and not diluted.
What we don't like was the service there. Firstly we wanted to sit inside in the air con-ed area but was told that its better we sit outside as its better atmosphere to eat steamboat outside. But I guess the more obvious reason was we had only 5 pax and the only table inside was for more than 8 pax. The person who serviced us keep trying to coax us to order the Ala Cart (and we kept saying no) which was way more expensive and limited than the steamboat buffet. Our second order did not come at all. The person who changed the gas fuel for us accidentally touched our food with the gas can and her hands and don't even bother to change the food for us. Our bill didn't come when we asked twice for it. (We had to stare at the counter for some attention)
We went to this cheery little steamboat place at Tanjong Katong Road called Paradise on Earth.
I feel like I've hit the lottery. Hubby who normally loathes steamboat actually likes this place and would come back again (in fact, he doesn't want to go anywhere else!). Most of our experiences with steamboat have left us quite disappointed. Here, at Paradise on Earth, the food not only looks and tastes fresh, it's really quite value-for-money. Very pleasing on both eye and wallet.
About 60 items (meat, seafood, vegetables and dishes) plus dessert come free-flow with the buffet price. They also have a premium menu (house specialties) of about 30 items that you can order separately. You won't be complaining about lack of variety here (got a sudden craving for live bull frogs and geoduck? no problem).
They have about five soup choices (you can have two). They are well-known for their satay flavoured soup - we liked this better than their hot & spicy (mala style) soup. Others are fish head, dried scallop and tom yum.
You must try the fried rice here. Looks like plain old Yangzhou fried rice but it's delicious - the first time I had it, I took three bowls! I like the sweet-sour-spicy dipping sauce too. Oh, they also serve you a nice plate of achar - pickled pineapple, carrots and cucumber (that will later appear as a $2 charge on your bill). However, there is no GST and no service charge at this place. Hurrah!
