Winter is approaching, meaning one of the most popular activities will be hitting Hong Kong by storm – Hot Pot! Yes, we Kongers also Hotpot during the summer, while blasting aircon (yes very contradictory), but what can beat that warm and fussy feeling when you gather round eating food together, from a boiling pot!?

Hot Pot, as one of the many traditions, has allowed dozens of similar restaurants to pop -up around town. Whether you prefer the all-you-can-eat versions (to save that extra penny for a dessert later) or the more luxurious speciality hotpot joints, there is bound to be one for you.

Megan’s Kitchen, though won’t break the bank, is definitely one of the higher end Hot Pot places. Serving premium quality ingredients and sporting friendly, yet professional service. Megan’s Kitchen is known for their innovative menu, with funky soup bases like Tom Yum Koong Cappuccino and Sichuan Chilli & Escargot, you will never get bored! Their ingredient offering is just as interesting and fun! Peking duck dumplings, Rainbow Cuttlefish balls and cheese or garlic stuffed balls, are just a few amongst their exotic hotpot choices!

So what are you waiting for!?

Hotpot Soup base

(Tom Yum Koong Cappuccino | Tomato & Crab Soup in Soufflé finish)

  • Tom Yum Soup was not too spicy with a good flavor of coconut and lemon grass. Very appetizing and perfect for seafood. (really looked like a cuppa coffee!)
  • Tomato & Crab had good tomato flavor and was slightly spicy, but more seasoning could be added to give a more robust taste. Egg white soufflé also became a great healthy snack on the side!
