Spice World Teddy Bear Mala Hot Pot
Address: Block B, 3 River Valley Road,#01-06/07 Clarke Quay Singapore 179021 | Opening Hours: 10.30am – 4am (Sun to Thu); 10.30am – 6am (Fri & Sat) | Reservations: 6265 9777
Spice World Hot Pot has been in the limelight recently for its new Teddy Bear Broth, which – we’ll give it to them – is a downright creative idea to get more people posting about their hot pot meals. The broth essence, which is served in solid Teddy Bear form, melts into the boiling water to create a flavourful soup base. Is it kind of macabre? Sure (Melting into a pot of boiling water is not much fun, one would surmise). Are we still going to whip out our phones and record it all? Hell yeah.
