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~
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. :)
