SquareMeal Review of Shuang Shuang

Chinese-style hotpots have been fast-tracked (via conveyor belt) to hipness thanks to Shuang Shuang, a refreshingly modern addition to Chinatown. Dishes contain no MSG, and hotpots are picked from plates priced by colour, bubbling past on winding belts. The process is ideal for the uninitiated, with the menu helpfully explaining the myriad dining accoutrements. Mala broth arrives fizzing with Szechuan peppercorns: a great match for a plate of plump prawns. Chewy, hearty fish balls stuffed with pork are also unmissable. Vegetarians have plenty of choice too, small parcels of stuffed tofu being another must-grab conveyor-belt plate. A small range of snacks adds to the options, including crispy, fatty pig’s ears fried in strips, or delicately spiced scallop and prawn fritters. Prices soon mount up, but whether you’re on the frenetic, steamy ground floor or tranquil, spacious first floor, you’ll receive well-trained service and a superb introduction to Chinese hot-pottery.
