A. This hot pot combines the Spicy flavor and Coconut Curry flavor varieties. The Handmade Seafood Balls have a firm, chewy texture because of the fresh ingredients used. Cheese Shrimp Balls are very flavorful after absorbing the flavors of the broth and the combination of velvety melted cheese and shrimp is very unique. The above hot-pot side dishes cost between NT$50 and NT$260.
B. The Assorted Stew (NT$260) contains large intestines, beef belly and beef tendons cooked for four hours, while the Assorted Seafood Pancake (NT$180) is an authentic Hong Kong-style dish. The thickness of the meat served at this restaurant varies according to how evenly the fat is distributed, and other high-quality items like Japanese pork and Angus short ribs are also available.
