Beijing Steamboat @ Great Wall Restaurant, NUS Swimming Pool

A colleague asked if I wanted to join them for dinner. I said OK because I was already hungry at around 5 plus. We were going to have a mini steamboat. Where? At the NUS Swimming Pool. Hmm pool water for the steamboat? LOL....

It's the first time I found out that there's a restaurant there and it's called Great Wall.



The Beijing Steamboat's only available from 6 - 9 pm. It costs $6 and it has quite a big portion too. You have a choice of Mutton, Beef, Pork or Chicken.

One colleague had the beef version.



The other 3 of us had the chicken.



Come with a bowl of rice.



And a steamboat with flames that is so big and it lasts so long, that you do not need to rush to finish your meal so quickly worrying that the flames might die out first.



An aerial view to show you the approximate size.



Not the best steamboat you can get, but for $6, it is quite ok lah.

I've eaten here a few times, but no more. The food is pretty tired by the end of the day. Worse still, the scraps are left out overnight and the birds and (presumably) rats have a feast. I would arrive for a swim in the morning and there would often be an unhealthy looking mess waiting for the cleaners. I did tell OED about it and it was better for awhile, but then deteriorated again.

The food is a lot esp the meat portion. Its steamboat so in the end all taste about the same. The chinese students really like it though...huge portions...

Yikes! I'll never eat at the NUS swimming pool - too many bad memories of exams taken at the MPH! Urghh!

Greetings from Canada

Thank you for making the photos delicious again.

This steamboat is something new as I have never seen a personal steamboat before. I didn't realize at first until I saw the last photo.

Cheers.
