Soup Delight 🍜 Enjoying Hot Pot #DashOutSunday

avatar

Last Sunday was soup day, as we were having cassava soup for lunch and because we had an appointment to have hot pot in the evening. This was my first time having hot pot at a restaurant, but the very first time I had ever tried it was at a friends home, where everybody brought a food item.

That very first time the soup was crazy spicy - we only had the extra spicy version - it was a pot without a divider - not a real utensil for hot pot - so I wasn't able to enjoy the broth because of it. This time was different of course and we ordered both the regular and the extra spicy broth.

The pot arrived hot at our table, but wasn't boiling, so as we were waiting for that to happen, we were enjoying some fried dumplings and egg rolls. These two snacks - especially the egg rolls - were a real treat and a real surprise to my taste buds.

We had ordered a great deal of meat slices and balls, fishy items and two types of mushrooms. Noodles, corn and some green also couldn't be excluded. Oh and forgot to take a picture of the wontons, that we had ordered last minute.

Almost everything was to the groups liking, except for one not taking to the mushroom on the right, because of the texture and a different kind of aftertaste. I was surprised of the reaction at first, but after having thought about it, I remembered that I'm used to that taste because we're used to cooking it in our dishes.

There was only one thing that I wasn't fond of though and that was the crab stick, which had a strong artificial taste and I just couldn't register it. I only had one crab stick and that was enough.

And yet, we had enjoyed the (rest of the) ingredients, which my "tag team" foodie and I finished. I kept saying that I was done, but someone kept putting food items in my bowl, which proved that I wasn't quite done yet 😅. All in all, the amount we had gotten for our buck, is worth going back there.

I actually mixed them both 😅. The original was ok, but it got better after mixing it. I forgot to point that out in the post hahaha.

I know right haha, someone's looking out for me, but that tag-team-partner of mine knows I can eat a lot. We were the ones finishing the ingredients, while the rest of the party already had enough 🤣.

I was trying to figure out did you mix them, I supposed that yes :))

So, definitely yes :D

Yeah, the very first time we had tried hot pot, it wasn't a pot with a divider and we had the spicy broth. I couldn't enjoy the broth back then, so I've learned from my mistake 😂.

After seeing the first photo (without reading the post), I thought that you have prepared the meal, but when I saw the 4th, and 5th photos, it became suspicious... It was too many plates for 1 woman to prepare (no offense... 😃)...

All dishes look amazing! I don't like it too spicy either, but it gives a "touch" if it's hot a bit...


I have picked this post on behalf of the @OurPick project and it will be highlighted in the next post!

Hahahaha, we actually "made it ourselves" - except for the broth of course - because we had to put the raw ingredients ourselves in the soup.

But none taken, because I have yet to learn the art of dumplings, wontons and beef balls 😅.

Thank you for the support by the way oh and I forgot to mention that I just mixed the two broths hihi, because I like spicy but don't want to have any problems the next morning.

Hehe, I always find I get in such a mess when I eat hot pot 😂. There's more food and sauce on the table and on me than on the plate and in my mouth.

It's a lovely way to eat, though, and I love all the spices and condiments.

I kept asking for tissues because of that and I even spilled some soup on my jeans, because I tried to eat the corn with a utensil. After that happened I just used my hands 😂.

It's definitely recommended to try at least once and I'm in to hot pot more often now, but for now I'm good.

Yeah those fake crabs a re here too, fake indeed. No going around about it. I like how they had the ready made food along with the hot pot cause foodies don't wanna wait at all LOL! That two section put makes sense, cause not everyone wants spicy. In the last image, what is that round thing? Potatoes?

Yup, don't find the need for it next time and now I know it's not for me.

Hahahaha, it depends on how hungry I am 😅. Luckily, we already had lunch so I wasn't that hungry. I did have to be fast with photos because others in the party were.

Oh and I forgot to mention that I just mixed the two broths, which was flavorful.

There are a lot of round things haha, but I think you mean the mushrooms in the middle. Left to right: scrimp ball, mushroom and beef ball.

Those foods look so delicious. The spicy broth looked real spicy. Such a lovely spread. 😃

The pictures didn't do them justice 😅 !LOL

But I was trying to only take pictures of the ingredients and not the party at the table, because they didn't ask to be online and have to respect that. Another thing is that not all ingredients came in at the same time.

I'm actually pretty amazed at how we finished the leftovers after we were technically "done". !LOL

I wouldn't mind going again, but then we order new items from the menu exclusively.

!LOL Same, because I did mention a few times that I was done, but in a soft voice 🤣🤣🤣.
