1. Seafood Hotpot @ Fatt Kee Roast Fish

Fatt Kee Roast Fish is a popular spot for their bubbling pots of broth filled to the brim with all manner of fish, shellfish and other types of seafood. It also challenges your tolerance with broths that come with eight levels of spiciness, the higher the number, the spicier it is.

Many take the safe route and settle for 1 but if you dare, go higher and test your endurance.

The sambal that sits atop the fried chicken is composed of 400 chilies. A proud staple from the Yogajakarta region in Indonesia, the chicken is marinated with a medley of herbs before being deep-fried and smashed, giving it ample crunch to complement the potent sambal.
