$14.90++ tteokbokki hotpot buffet at Rendezvous Hotel
If you’ve not heard of 90 Minutes, it’s probably because this tteokbokki hotpot restaurant only opened in late April this year, not too long before Singapore went into P2HA. Centrally located on the first floor of Rendezvous Hotel, in between Dhoby Ghaut and Bras Basah, prices for the tteokbokki hotpot buffet here start at just $14.90++ per person!

The name of this restaurant tells it all—each dining session is limited to just 90 minutes—but it’s the restaurant’s goal to give every diner a satisfying meal in the one-and-a-half hours they’re allotted.
There are seven hotpot bases, or sauces as they’re known as at 90 Minutes, to choose from. They include Homemade, Gang Jung, Volcano, Carbonara, and Mala, but you can also get the restaurant’s preset combinations of two to three of the sauces.
Of course, being a tteokbokki hotpot restaurant, 90 Minutes has five different sorts of tteokbokki on the menu. Round Rice Cake, Sliced Rice Cake, Sweet Potato Rice Cake, or even Cheese Rice Cake—there’s a tteokbokki for everyone.

These rice cakes are part of a menu with more than 30 different items that you can choose from for the buffet, which ranges from cooked sides, to your classic hotpot ingredients. On the side, you can enjoy Korean Fried Chicken and Mandu, while pairing the tteokbokki with liao such as Eomuk, aka skewered fish cake, Cheese Tofu, Sliced Abalone, and more. There’s also sliced meats and seafood including Prawns and Lala.

Zhng-up your tteokbokki hotpot experience here by topping up $9.90++ for a Cheese Ring, where your hotpot is encircled by a ring of melty, oozy cheese and corn. End your meal with Ramyeon, which is included in the buffet, and finally, get the staff to mop up all the deliciousness in the pot by making fried rice with seaweed and luncheon meat.
