Flying Plate is the very first and currently the only branch of Chongqing hotplate in Singapore. Offering Chongqing hotplate barbeque-style, this restaurant also serves the most authentic Chongqing dishes along with their special in-house sauce. If you are looking for a place to bring your family and friends to for a hearty feast or simply just a casual dinner spot, I would highly recommend Flying Plate.
The Flying plate is a hidden gem of a restaurant situated at Bugis. The food here is more casual and homely and less refined. They are famed for their signature dishes such as Boiled Beef with Chilli, Fried Pork with Pineapple, Spicy Chicken Wings, Boiled Fish with Pickled Cabbage and Fried Pork with Laoganma Sauce. In particular, the Boiled Beef with Chilli stood out as one of the best dishes I ordered. It is easy to be fooled by its unphotogenic appearance. The beef is incredibly fresh and tender and it is a must-try for those who love your chilli. You are highly recommended to try their Fried Pork with Pineapple too. A simple dish as it is, the pineapple adds a sour kick to the entire dish and made it very appetizing. Not only was it delicious, this nostalgic dish is also served in a generous portion. Another praise-worthy dish would be their Boiled Fish with Pickled Cabbage, which is priced reasonably and is simply comfort homely food on a plate. I was told that they use pickled cabbage from Sze Chuan for this dish and the soup is painstakingly boiled for more than 8 hours. This clearly explains why it was so good. They also sell various types of beer in bundles, which allows you to end off your meal on a high note.

Not only does this homely restaurant serve delicious food, the service is excellent too. The staff will help portion out the dishes and change plates every now and then. If you are thinking to head down over the weekend, I would highly encouraged to make reservations to avoid disappointment. This restaurant is almost always crowded, especially during weekday nights and weekends.
