There are four kinds of Hot Pot available -- Chicken, Prawns, Beef and Fish. We got 3 to share among the 5 of us. Here's what we got:
Bite-sized chicken pieces cooked with flavorful dark sauce and veggies. This reminds me of the traditional Claypot Chicken minus the rice and is slightly similar to our Filipino chicken adobo too. Somehow we had a hard time grasping the concept of turning this into a soupy treat. Well, what do you know?! As soon as we asked that more soup be added, it was actually very good that we had about 5 refills of the soup. It goes so well with rice too!
I initially thought I wouldn't like this one because of its intimidating name. I am not a fan of spicy food but who would have thought that this was actually my favorite among the three. I love the spicy, coconut-y Tom Yum Soup broth! It would have been perfect though had they added in fresher prawns as it tasted quite mushy which is probably due to it being stored in the freezer a bit too long. At the bottom of the pot are hand-cut fries which eventually turned soggy but was still good as it soaked up all the Tom Yum flavor. Yum!
Tender cut of beef with a generous serving of vegetables. This one reminded me of the Korean Beef Short Ribs (Kalbi Jim) only it had a more oriental flavor brought about by the coriander, onions and celery. The guys loved this and I'd say the amount of the beef in this pot made it so worth it!
It was a fun experience to try a new kind of hot pot. This is perfect if you love anything really flavorful as each kind will give you a strong kick of flavor and even some heat depending on how much you can take.
