What’s new on the menu?
The new mainstays include Eight Treasures Porridge (S$16), which features a medley of pumpkin, sweet potato, red dates, water chestnut, shitake mushroom, corn, broccoli and carrot; while the Double Happiness Chicken Porridge (S$16) is a nourishing dish, filled with succulent chicken chunks and fresh mushroom.

The Sliced Smoked Duck (S$6.80) are flavourful and tender, and are bound to delight. Then, temper the meat indulgence with Stuffed Cabbage Rolls (S$6.80), which features minced pork, diced prawn, mushroom and water chestnut wrapped with soft and sweet cabbage. Filled with crab stick and bean vermicelli, the Vietnamese Crab Meat Rolls (S$6.80) promise an authentic taste. Finally, the Bacon-wrapped with Baby Potatoes (S$9.80) will certainly satisfy carb lovers.
Traditional steamboats tend to leave an unctuous layer of fat and scum after protracted cooking —there is none of that at Steam Box. All the ingredients are brought to the table raw, then freshly steamed —not boiled— before your eyes using the innovative culinary technique of high-speed steaming.
Steaming is one of the most iconic and traditional Chinese cooking techniques. Using steam cooking ensures that all the natural juices and nutrients of the ingredients are sealed in. In turn, the dishes boast a light yet robust flavour. Buoyed by this cooking technique, the restaurant can promise a healthy indulgence.
