大年初五/ The Magic Of ChongQing Hot Pot

The Chinese hot pot has a history of more than 1,000 years and most likely originated in Mongolia. Family gather during the Lunar New Year for a sumptuous hot pot meal for reunion bonding and meal enjoyment.

Today, I went to The Magic Of Chong Qing Hot Pot located at 19 Tanglin Road, Level 4. This is my favourite hot pot store because of the good food and most importantly, the after-meal desserts.

I chose 2 soup bases (out of 3 varieties), Ma-La Spicy Broth vs Chicken Broth. The Ma-La Spicy Broth has 3 levels which you can choose from. If you don’t mention, they will just give you Standard Spicy.

I love their eight-treasure drink (you can choose either hot/ iced) as it refreshes the palate, especially after taking the Ma-La Spicy hotpot. It is a mixture of 8-types of chinese herbs, inclusive of ginseng.

Last to introduce are my fav. desserts, only served at this hotpot restaurant.

They have the chestnut cake, glutinous rice cake with egg (top with icing sugar) and fried bun (dip with condensed milk).

So get your family and friends together for a simple yet cosy Hotpot meal! Happy Chinese New Year!!
