Nonetheless, business is still bustling at japanese collagen hotpot specialty restaurant, Tsukada Nojo Bijin Nabe (塚田農場 美人鍋). A queue starts to form even before the restaurant is open for business when we visited during dinner time on a Sunday.

We waited around 20 minutes to get a table, but the wait was alright as patrons are registered with a queue number and the staff will given you a call when there is a table available. Meanwhile, we were free to do some shopping in the mall.

The restaurant has a set of dining instructions on how to best enjoy your hotpot. If you find it too confusing to do it on your own, you can get the staff to help you:

The first soup refill is free. The three of us drank up all the soup right to the last drop. The ingredients for the hotpot are a little stingy. However, what you get are quality assured:

The food items do not seem much, but we were quite full after we were done with the noodles at the end.

The restaurant also serves other menu items like their bacon rice rolls. We ordered one for Asher which he enjoyed a lot, thinking it is a bun:

The hotpot is only available during dinner. For lunch, they serve ramen and the other ala carte menu items. Here are some of the stuff I tried on another visit with my colleagues:
