Eat: Hopo Fusion Style Hotpot

As temperature dip, cravings for hot pot goes up. Hot pot is mostly a communal activity, but Hopo does it where each person gets their own simmering pot.

There’s soup bases to choose from such as spicy beef to Malaysian Laksa to fermented tofu (stinky tofu!). Jenny and I shared a non-spicy beef soup. It’s not found on their regular menu, rather a separate menu; as though they’ve realized that not everyone can handle spice.

It was alright, enough for the two of us but depending on how hungry you are, it could be enough or too much. Aside from doing hotpot at home, the hotpot restaurants I’ve been to does all-you-can-eat, but Hopo presets your food items based on the soup you order and well, you get more vegetables than meat.

It made me prefer doing hotpot at home, or all-you-can-eat where there is more variety.
