Water based broth is used for vegan hotpot instead of bone soup. While the spiciness of spicy soups bring you to Sichuan, China, the sour-sweetness of tomato soup and the flavorful mushroom soup gives you a refreshing mouthfeel!

Step 3: dipping sauce
While waiting for the food you ordered, you can make you own dipping sauce. Dipping sauce is a very personal thing, there are no rules to choose what to put into you sauce bowl. You can always DIY your own dipping sauce at our sauce bar. If you prefer to follow a recipe guide, we also provide classic dipping sauce recipes at our sauce bar.

If it is your first time having hotpot, and you don’t know how much to order, we would recommend you to have two-flavor soup base, a cold dish, several hotpot side dishes (for example 2 dishes p.p.), dipping sauce and snacks. There is also a vegan hotpot set carefully selected by us that is suitable for 2-3 people to enjoy.
There are a few things to keep in mind while u eat hotpot. Make sure you wait for the soup to get boiling before you or your friend put the ingredients. Different foods have different cook times. For example, taro usually takes longer cook time than mushrooms. One last thing is that the food will be very hot, so keep things leisurely.
More to explore
Besides hotpot, there are also tasty snacks which are originated from Sichuan, China. For example, fried pumpkin cakes have crunchy skin but are soft inside with real pumpkin stuffing. Take a bite to explore the rich taste :p
