Curry Hot Pot--Kuo Bee Pen Da


9, Lane 171, AnHe Rd., Sec. 2
(02) 8732-1069
Hours:12 pm-2:30 pm,5:30 pm-1 am

    Kuo Bee Pen Da's unique Curry Hot Pot uses a soup base of old hen, JinHua ham, lean meat and other ingredients. These are slowly stewed for eight hours. More than 20 Chinese medicinal herbs are then added before being fried to make the curry powder. As you drink it, you will not only discover a simple curry flavor, but also a gentle, spicy taste. The basic hot pot costs NT$400; beneath it there is dried ducks' blood and jellied tofu. Customers can order items to add to the pot: selections include beef (NT$330), sliced fish (NT$250), and pig intestines (NT$250). Shrimp and egg balls (NT$250) and yan dumplings are available. The chrysanthemum honey tea is highly recommended (one pot for NT$160); drunk with the curry pot, it helps to reduce internal body heat. This restaurant has simple, yet fashionable decorations, with a touch of Chinese style. On one pane of frosted glass are the autographs of several famous visitors. --By Selena Huang
