小肥羊 Mongolian Hot Pot

I have been pretty busy this weekend with work as well as studying for the final exam. Term 1 ended on Friday and to celebrate the end of term as well as J’s birthday, we all went out for Mongolian Hot Pot at 小肥羊 located in Lansdown Centre (Richmond).

I never had this type of hot pot before. The soup base had Chinese herbs and spices and that made the food very flavorful. The reason why Mongolian hot pot is famous is because they stress how you don’t need to use any sauces to flavor the food. We ordered half spicy, half original for the hot pot soup base. I didn’t think it was too spicy and it tasted better than the original. It looks pretty scary in the picture though! So red.

There was a large selection of foods on the menu. From pumpkin (My sister’s favorite!) to lamb to seafood.. We ordered lamb and beef and mushrooms and tofu.. My favorites were the lamb and the fish balls~

A lot of veggies and meat!

Overall the ambiance in the restaurant was very nice. The price was on the high side, and on average it’s around $25 per person not including tax and tips.

After hot pot we had black forest cake.. Poor J got creamed by almost everybody. It was a fun and memorable night. :)

Happy birthday, J!!

    Haha, my dad did the architecture on that restaurant! We always get like 20% off when we go… but I don’t like that hot pot, I think it tastes weird =S I think I just don’t like those red beans =S

        Yeah, sometimes my mom makes this nice soup with it, and I would drink it all except those beans.
        It doesn’t taste bad, but it doesn’t taste good either >_< I like POSH better, haha.

        I have no exams, just 2 papers and they're due tomorrow. I haven't to wake up early to hand them in before 12PM though =_=;;;
