If you don’t mind having mookata at a hawker centre, check out Sedap Thai, a steamboat stall located on the first floor of Berseh Food Centre.

A Platter Set ($20) comes with various veggies, seafood and marinated meats, and is more than enough for two people. But if you’re feeling especially hungry, they’ve also introduced an a la carte buffet at just $20 per person.

There’s no soup involved in Sedap Dan Sihat’s “steam pot”. Simply put your food into the steamer, and the heat will do all the work for you. Most of their sets include their star item – shiitake mushrooms with quail eggs – but be prepared to order more because it’s simply so good.
There’s also an option to add congee to your meal. The congee is placed below the steamer, and it will slowly absorb the juices that drip down from the rest of the food. The result is a flavourful pot of congee that’s extra satisfying.
