my OPS sakura gang came for 5pax 海底捞hotpot on 22.3.2018. ^^
this really the easiest of all makan, no cooking required, just buy beef & pork & vege etc, AND eat & enjoy! ^^
i had all 4 types of mushrooms – enoki, shimeji, shitaka & also abalone mushroom. i like the texture of the abalone mushroom. really good! 🙂
for vege, i just use chinese cabbage, both for the soup base together with ikan bilis & yellow beans.
& also to add in the course of the hotpot meal..
& i bought fish balls, teochew fish cake, and also beef balls.
i was at donki at orchard central basement 2 few days back when i had lunch with sis & bil at tanuki.
so i bought both the kurobuta (thin cut) & also the white pork (thick cut).
quite surprising the slightly cheaper white pork was a lot tastier than the kurobuta…odd!
i had also some good beef from phoon huat delicatessen, i think short ribs. it was very nice indeed.
when i was in shanghai with WM last sep2017, WT & GY got me to buy some bamboo pit. i was quite clueless on the preparation..
anyway it was quite easy, just soaked in water, drained & then add to soup or hotpot..
it was pretty good actually, but i guess just the texture, not much of a taste to talk about.
& i always like to rolled dry bean curd skin.
WM brought ice jelly made by J, very nice & refreshing…
& FM made a nice blueberry cake…
we had a fun lunch & fellowship & talked about the upcoming trip to kyoto, nara, osaka.
