I always have a thing for steamboat, not entirely sure why. But perhaps because the thought of the immediate satisfaction of watching your food getting and eat it right when it’s ready. Bangsar would be the last place that I would thought of going for steamboat but Hong Kong Hot Pot proves me wrong.
Hong Kong Hot Pot is quick to catch its own following since established not long ago, but garnered a lot of attention last year. It’s located as the same row as The Social Bangsar, right opposite of Bangsar Village.
Hong Kong Hot Pot (香港热锅)
This place itself is quite unique. It used to be located right above Tour Le Jour, but since it’s closed down, they took over the spot, offering space at the ground floor as well.
If you take the escalator up at Telawi Square, their restaurant is located right at the top floor.
What’s fun about this place is that they even offer Karaoke room but only limited rooms though as only 3 rooms available. You’ll probably have to call and book in advance to secure the room if you’re coming in a huge group.
What to order in Hong Kong Hot Pot (香港热锅)?
What’s the most important in a steamboat or hot pot? Of course is the broth itself. What made Hong Kong Hot Pot famous itself is the broth that they offered. We ordered the Sakura Pork Bone, Sichuan Spicy as well as Fresh Tomato Soup base.
This will really make all the difference, really. You can, of course opt for mix soup base to enjoy the best of both worlds.
For the absolute must-order ingredients have to be their Signature Crispy Fried Fish Skin. Be it dip into your self-made sauce or run it over the soup, you’ll hear that crackling noise and enjoy your bite.
Then it’s the Sakura Premium Pork Slice that you’ve to try. It’s arranged in a flower-like pattern and the meat itself is meat and fat balanced, making it enjoyable once you’ve it cooked through.
Their fresh hand made Prawn, Squid and Fish meat balls is to die for. It’s so fresh that it bounces in your mouth as you bite through them.
