Chongqing Hotplate originates from The Flying Plate restaurant, the dishes soared.

In case you don't know, The Flying Plate is the first restaurant that uses Chongqing Hotplate in Singapore. Since then, its the only restaurant that uses Chongqing Hotplate in Singapore. But we didn't have the usual bbq marinated meat and beers you would normally get from a Hotpot resturant with Chinese Teppanyaki styled of cooking. Yes I am confused, why the plate are flying? Anyway, we order some very delicious Sichuan Cuisine!

Mala Soup with slice beef
The good thing about The Flying Plates is you can choose your level of spiciness. Not many restaurant would bother really, but if the plates fly, it got to be good. Back to our sichuan dish. As you know, the Mala sauce is a popular oily, spicy, and numbing Chinese sauce which consists of Sichuanese peppercorn, chili pepper and various spices simmered with oil. It is regarded as a regional dish for Chongqing cuisine actually. Now I know why Chongqing cuisine is synonymous with Sichuan cuisine.

Salted vegetable soup with slice fish
Hmm, what can I say about this dish... its very appetizing, the color of the soup is rather clear. Actually you can't go wrong with salted vegetable, because it can go with toufu or chicken, but

Sichuan is fish slice

I am a huge fan of anything sweet and sour. Really! It encompasses many styles of sauce, cuisine and cooking methods. It is commonly used in China, but has been used in England since the Middle Ages and remains popular in Europe and America. So its an international hit dish! So i love this sweet and sour pork dish! Ok, I love deep fry too! It just makes my mouth water when I think about deep fried bitesized pork coated with corn flour, in sweet sour sauce! YUM!

Well, ironically, I can't write much about this signature dish cause I was almost blow away by the spices used for this dish. Hahaa... but if you love spicy, this has to be THE dish for you!

Ok the last dish we had was actually called The Flying Plate, so maybe the mystery of the flying plate would finally come to light, but all I saw was prawns cooked with beef. I have never been so confused in my life; but its good! I mean the tastebuds say good. Haha...
