Hotpot, or Chinese fondue, a great idea for eating out in a group

If you know fondue, it is easy to imagine hotpot being an excellent idea for group eating out with family and friends. With the soup base at the centre of the table, everyone could order their favourite hotpot ingredients to cook.

how to eat hotpot

At HOT&HOT, we have six flavours of soup base, satisfying both spicy lovers and those who do not eat spicy food. To prepare the soup, our chefs will make fresh pork bone broth every day. Together with different other ingredients, various flavours are awaiting trying. The vegan broth is, of course, also available for halal and vegan/vegetarian foodies!

We have over 100 options for the ingredients – from seafood to sliced beef, from vegetables to mushrooms. Some ingredients, like meatballs, ribeye beef and noodles, are popular internationally. There are more ingredients derived from Asian cuisines.

For example, Chinese sesame balls – fried stick rice balls with a crispy outside and creamy inside.

Or frozen tofu – tofu in a unique porous structure that absorbs soup flavour sufficiently.

And fried tofu skin rolls – one of our best sellers – is a bean product that will become soft and tender after only 10 seconds of shabu. You can still taste the freshness of soybeans.

Easter dinner – hotpot dishes in spring style

Easter is a great time to taste a bite of a spring vibe. At HOT&HOT, we have multiple ingredients that match the spring atmosphere. Here is our suggested recipe for your spring hotpot family meal.

  • Soup base flavour: mushroom soup base

It is one of our non-spicy soup-base options, and it tastes milder and milky. Customers usually cook vegetables in it.

  • Chunky Cucumbers with Garlic

This cold dish will be a great starter for your hotpot meal. It is made of cucumber mixed with a unique sauce in Sichuan style, which is mildly spicy and month-numbing!

  • Mushroom mix

The mushroom mix includes various mushrooms, including Enoki Mushroom, King Oyster Mushroom, and black fungus. Mushrooms in the spring are the freshest!

  • Fresh prawn

Fresh prawn is one of our best sellers all the time. Unlike frozen shrimp, we serve whole fresh prawns. You can cook it in the soup for around 1min and

  • Sweet Potato Noodles

Like rice noodles in Pho, sweet potato noodles are also made of plant starch. After cooking for around 10min in the hotpot soup, it looks crystal and transparent but tastes chewy and bouncy – some call it a Q texture.

  • Gong Cai, or dried celery

Its Chinese name Gong Cai literally means tribute vegetable. The highest quality celeries are selected, and the processing skills are dedicated. The magical thing about Gong Cai is that it is still crispy after several minutes in a hotpot. Besides the unique texture, it absorbs the soup flavour as well. It is a must-try in your next hot pot meal!

  • Matcha Ice Cream milk tea

At HOT&HOT, we serve bubble tea next to the hotpot, as the first restaurant in the Netherlands to combine hotpot and bubble tea together. The cute green colour of Matcha ice cream matches the spring vibe perfectly for bubble tea lovers and matcha fans! It is available in our Rotterdam store.
