To create a hot pot experience that is truly authentic, the experienced chefs at Fontana go out of their way to gather the freshest and finest ingredients from all over the world and make their very own, signature hot pot broths. Fontana, with its panoramic views to the Performance Lake – courtesy of dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows – is the perfect setting to indulge in a hot pot bursting with flavor while watching plumes of water dance to music.
There is so much more to hot pot than meets the eye. It is an experience in itself, and representative of Chinese food culture. The chefs at Fontana have specially created 9 signature broths featuring traditional, herbal and regional flavors. These include lobster with tomato broth, a nourishing chicken with Shaoxing Huadiao wine broth, a Chongqing pickled mustard greens broth and more.
The quality of ingredients is paramount at Fontana. Guests may order from signature set menus or select whatever they wish from an a la carte menu featuring premium seafood, high-quality meat, organic vegetables, mushrooms and more. The homemade meat balls, fresh and tender shrimp mousseline, cuttlefish paste and homemade noodles and dumplings are all highly recommended for the perfect hot pot experience. As a refreshing complement to the hot pot, Fontana has also crafted its own specialty beverages that include an Osmanthus sour plum drink and herbal, flower-infused teas. For a sweet ending to the entire experience, guests may also select from 8 varieties of ice cream and sorbet.
Beyond hot pot, Fontana also serves timeless dim sum classics during breakfast and lunch for an authentic "yum cha" experience. Each delicately handcrafted dim sum is freshly made-to-order and steamed to perfection by our chefs. Guests may also pair their dim sum dishes with any one of the fragrant, premium teas on offer at Fontana. It's a wonderful way to spend a leisurely weekend.
A perfect space to celebrate with family and friends, the restaurant is a two-tier theater, with spectacular views overlooking the fountains. Drawing inspiration from the porcelain, textiles, furnishings and architecture of the Ming dynasty – the interior décor is a masterful recreation of Chinoiserie design in the 21st century. The dazzling Viardot Dragon mirror collection by renowned Chinoiserie artist Gabriel-Frédéric Viardot takes center stage in the buffet area. Viardot spent five years traveling all across the globe to complete this remarkable collection, which illustrates the significant influence Chinese art has had on European and American design.
