Hot Pot China is the only place in Chennai which we have visited repeatedly in last 3-4 years, only because how consistently they are serving the amazingly scrumptious Chinese.
We went early evening on a weekday and so getting a table was easy (We suggest book your table for your meals on weekends)
We were so hungry and we were so happy that we planned to have a 3 course meal.
The moment we took our place and gulped down a glass of water to quench our thirst they treated us with spicy Kokum shot, which was a perfect blend of fresh Kokum pulp with salt and pepper. That was like the perfect start to this gastronomic affair.
Meanwhile without wasting time, we quickly grabbed the menu and ordered “Sweet corn Soup”. Oh boy! Bowled over by the freshness of corn, small pieces of carrot and grated broccoli; it was making it the perfect soup. Better at Strike 2 again!
Pineapple Salt n Pepper was the starter.
For me it was new. Being a fan of barbeque pineapple, we wanted to try this and it was not a bad choice for sure; sweetness of the pineapple and pepper complementing it so well.
(Order only if you like taste of pepper).
On our previous visits, they had always served complimentary dim sums. On enquiring, they told us that they discontinued the practice and trust me, we were heartbroken.
Being a hardcore Dumplings fan, we couldn’t miss on that. So we asked them, “What is the best dim sum they can serve us, steamed ones.
His suggestion was the Steam Pokchoy Dumplings.
It was different than what I have tried till date. It was filled with all greens. Grated zucchini, broccoli, lemon grass served with fresh pepper salsa.
Once we finished with the dim sum, it was time for the main course and we ordered “Butter Chilli Garlic Noodles” with “Four Treasure Vegetables in Schezwan Sauce”.
And with the first bite of those Noodles, I was on Cloud Nine. Picture of those noodles will speak for itself.
It was beauty. That taste of butter with Red Chilli Flakes is something I can still not forget.
Four treasures with Schezwan sauce.
We were so much into the noodles but this did not failed us.
Well cooked Vegetables and in good quantity with lots of sauce.
To end it we wanted to have dessert but we were already full. So out of greed and after lot calculations and after doing permutations and combinations we ordered hot chocolate Roll will not say that was best it was the only Okay dish of the Day.
While discussing with the manager he also told us that, they will be changing menu from next month and new menu will be covering Asian food as a whole.
Overall it was wonderful experience and waiting for the change in menu to try it again.
Another thing which we appreciated about them is the half portion they serve. That not only gives us space to try other dishes it also reduces wastage of food.
Why Revisiting? Coz we keep visiting n more so Write about it again n again!
