Food trends come and go, but hotpot remains a culinary constant. And when you say let’s go for a hotpot meal, most people would assume you’re talking about the well-known stalwart from China. No, let’s talk about another hotpot restaurant specialising in nourishing soup bases with fresh quality ingredients and homemade specialities that will make you spread the gospel further.
Beauty in The Pot is as it sounds: a steaming pot of comforting broth brings the delectable harmony of rich flavours and abundant benefits all into one hearty meal. The brand is already huge in Singapore, including overseas venture into Genting Highland Malaysia and Yangon in Myanmar.
For those who aren’t familiar with the hotpot brand, Beauty in The Pot is one of the multi-F&B concepts under the Paradise Group. The homegrown restaurant group currently operates FIVE Beauty in The Pot restaurant outlets in Singapore, with the sixth BITP outlet coming its way in late 2019. Locations include: KINEX, Centrepoint, VivoCity, JEWEL Changi Airport and the latest, The Star Vista.
The brand new Beauty in The Pot outlet is located at the second level of The Star Vista mall, next to its sister brand Le Shrimp Ramen outlet. The restaurant spans over 6,300 sqft with an impressive 212 covers, including two private dining rooms which sits 10 pax each and can be combined to host an even larger group.
Every Beauty in The Pot outlet features a different look — this one is designed to flaunt the girl power in the family. Decorated in an iconic art deco style, the restaurant is glammed up in pastel blue and red colors theme, with big influence on the concept of “Good Food Good Living”. The dynamic interior boasts a hint of glamour that nods to romanticism and showcases specially commissioned Beauty Female portraits which epitomises strength, courage and absolute beauty of all women.
My favourite seat in the house for the Beauty in The Pot outlet at The Star Vista would be the cozy section near the windows, ideal for two to four diners.
In celebration of its new opening, Beauty in The Pot has launched a new seasonal broth at The Star Vista outlet, as well as a limited edition promotion for Citi, Standard Chartered and Paradise Group members, whereby customers can enjoy a complimentary twin pot broth on July 6 and 7, 2019.

Expect intensely intimate flavours of fresh big prawns and premium conpoy in the umami broth-packed broth that has been cooked for more than eight hours, along with a blend of spices such as star anise, cinnamon, clove and white peppercorn. You will also find fresh clams added into the soup base for natural sweetness.
