It has been more than a year since I last had hotpot at Bugis Hotpot & BBQ Buffet. I searched Google for a hotpot place and Ma Ma Spin Pot 麻姐旋转火锅 sounded interesting. I read that conveyor-belt hotpot is not a new concept but this is my first time to one so I am still pretty psyched.
Ma Ma Spin Pot 麻姐旋转火锅 is located opposite Woodlands East Industrial Estate, it is a little inaccessible. The only bus available is 858, most people will choose to walk 15-20 minutes from Admiralty MRT.
Ma Ma Spin Pot 麻姐旋转火锅 is decorated in garden-theme with leaves and flowers hanging down from the ceiling. There is a claw machine in front of the entrance and Grab & Go Charger where you can rent a portable power bank at S$1 for 24 hours.
Ma Ma Spin Pot 麻姐旋转火锅 is not halal-certified but there is a huge sign next to its SafeEntry sign that says “no pork no lard” so I believe it is safe for Muslims to dine here.
There are two types of seats – counter seats with individual pots or group seats with shared pots.
There are 10 soup bases to choose from, my girlfriend and I chose Collagen 胶原蛋白汤 and Mushroom 美颜菌汤. The collagen soup are literally huge chunks of collagen blocks which melts to form a thick delicious collagen soup. The mushroom soup is made with different types of mushrooms that produces a clear and flavorful soup.
There is a huge sauce station next to the entrance with more than 15 sauces to make your preferred concoction. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in an effort to reduce cross-contamination, customers are not allowed to take their own sauces. There is a form where you can select the sauces you want and the staff will take them for you.
This is supposed to be a conveyor-belt hotpot restaurant but there are only a few miserable plates of ingredients on the conveyor belt. The plates are color-coded.
Again due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you are encouraged to order your ingredients from this form and the service staff will deliver them to you.
If you want to have something to nibble on while your hotpot cooks, you can order from the Grilled Items and Main Dish menu. Grilled Fish (Mala or Sichuan Vegetables) [S$26.80] is supposed to be a signature dish of the restaurant. The Mutton Skewers [S$2 per stick], Mid-Wing Skewers [S$2 per stick], Cuttlefish Skewers [S$2 per stick] and Bacon Enoki Skewers [S$2.50 per stick] are superb.
Ma Ma Spin Pot 麻姐旋转火锅 in Woodlands is open until 1am, making it a great midnight supper spot for those who live in the area.
