One of the latest additions to SkyAvenue at Resorts World Genting is Beauty In The Pot (美滋锅) which hits the spot- the resorts' all year round chilly weather would be perfect for hotpot, a go-to method to warm up. The newly opened hotpot specialist however, woos female guests with its name and special emphasis to "Beauty", offering Collagen-filled hotpot broth in a unique way. Set on the highest floor of SkyAvenue, guests visiting the hotpot restaurant will be awarded with fantastic view overlooking the hilltop, with occasional mist and hill fog painting the picture. But be prepared for a long wait if you are planning to visit this place during this holiday season, do queue and take the number earlier (at least an hour before your actual visit). It's also noteworthy that the hotpot restaurant offers 20% discounts on all hotpot ingredients after 10:30 pm (only applicable on Mondays to Fridays, excluding weekends and Public Holidays).
Quart Pot- Beauty Collagen pot (Rm 15)/ Longevity Wild Mushroom Broth (Rm 13)/ Spicy Nourishing Broth (Rm 15)/ Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth (Rm 15)

Firm Tofu (Rm 3/ small)
It's quite obvious that Beauty In The Pot is using the same strategy as the market leader- Hai Di Lao... by offering top-notch service. Guests visiting the restaurant are invited to be seated near the main entrance with complimentary snacks served; the table will be cleaned before the guests are invited to be seated at the table. The well-trained server then explain the menu and ordering system... one odd thing though... they would bow to the guests every time they have ended the conversation.
Moving on to the menu, guests must first select the hotpot broth and they don't come cheap. For our novelty experience, we had the quart pot with 4 different soup bases. We found the signature Beauty Collagen broth most appealing with sleek texture and bold flavors. While we thought the Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth was quite good either; the remaining soup bases were of standard average.
The hotpot ingredients are of premium quality, expect to find handmade fish balls, fresh fish paste, imported meats, luxurious seafood etc on the menu (you may find more info on their website). We found most of the hotpot ingredients were fresh... at least the hefty price tags are well-justified. At the end of the meal, we were also served with a small jug of complimentary Yuzu Sorbet for palate-cleansing. Good for novelty experience but would I come back? Only if I have that extra budget to splurge.
