Four Seasons Hotpot City- Hotpot Buffet at SM By The Bay Mall of Asia

There's a new hotpot buffet in town! Four Seasons Hotpot City is brought to us by the same group behind the famous all-you-can-eat restaurant Vikings. This time, shabu-shabu/hotpot takes center stage as guests are treated to a wide selection of soup base, fresh vegetables, high quality meat and seafood, noodles, drinks, desserts and more!

While Four Seasons highlights their vast selection of hotpot ingredients, guest can also enjoy a variety of ready-to-eat appetizers and pre-cooked dishes. 


Japanese Station- Sushi, Sashimi, Maki Rolls

Salmon, Tuna, Tamago, Kani, Ika, Maki Rolls
various sushi rolls

Bread Station- Baguettes and Ciabatta

Cold Cuts and Starters- smoked ham, smoked chicken, century egg, ngoyong roll, picked cucumber, deviled eggs, fresh spring rolls

Salad Station

I love the selection of appetizers. There were a lot of choices, yet sampling most of the items won't fill you up before the main highlight. I especially enjoyed the fresh spring rolls, deviled eggs, and cold cuts.

Hot Dishes

Now, let's move on to the hotpot selections. 
Soup Broth: Vegetable, Pork, Sinigang, Sibut (Chinese Herbal Soup)

Diners can choose 2 different soup base. We opted for the traditional half plain (vegetable) half pork broth and requested for some sate sauce to go with it. 

We started going around the stations to fill up our trays with our preferred ingredients. 


Beef and Chicken Station

Pork Station

Meat selections were endless, but I recommend going for their sliced beef and lamb. 


I also enjoyed the seafood station where we got to feast on unlimited servings of shrimp, squid, scallops, oysters, baby octopus and crab. They have frog legs too! 

squid, clams, scallops, shrimp, fish, oysters, octopus, sea cucumber


carrot noodles, chili noodles, squid ink noodles, polonchay noodles, HK noodles, hofan, macaroni

Four Seasons Hotpot City offers different kinds of interesting noodles. I regret not trying their squid ink noodles and chili noodles. 

Dumplings and Balls

Welcome to dumplings and balls city! The vast selection of mixed balls and assorted dumplings can be quite overwhelming to the point I felt like everything tasted the same. But there were still some variants that stood out. How I wish they would serve my favorite mozzarella and taro balls soon! :) 

tofu balls
fresh squid balls, shrimp and squid paste, fish balls, fresh chicken and meat balls, meat dumplings
assorted dumplings, fish cakes, stuffed balls


Vegetarians or healthy eaters will find their piece of heaven at the vegetable station. Fresh and crisp leafy greens, assorted mushrooms, and a whole lot more! 



These are just half of the drinks offered at Four Seasons. They have a lot of interesting juice flavors, tea, soda, and beer to choose from.

Chocolate Fountain and Kakanin

Fresh Fruits

Dessert Shooters

I would say that Four Seasons' introductory rates are so worth it, so make sure to take advantage of their current rates now. Expect A LOT of food items so there's definitely something for everyone. Plus, They also have an ongoing birthday promo wherein the celebrant gets to eat for free on his/her birthdate or birthmonth. I'll definitely take advantage of this promo since my birthday is just around the corner. :)
