Taste of Szechuan

Took the parentals out to celebrate an early birthday. We decided to go for hot pot and picked Taste of Szechuan. It’s a few doors down from Hung Phat Vietnamese and Izakaya Tomo.

We dropped in on a Monday for a late lunch (around 2:45pm). The place was empty as you’d expect.

Service is standard and our waitress came by to refill our pot once. Sauce station was typical although chive sauce was a new one for me.

There’s two lunch specials ($15.99 for 3 meats & 3 veggies or else $19.99 for 4 meats & 4 veggies).

You choose your meat, vegetable and main dishes (aka. noodle or rice) from the list.

3x Lunch specials ($15.99)
DSC08768We opted for the mushroom broth flavour and spicy & hot beef tallow broth (medium). Beware, this broth isn’t playing around. Good spice and heat to it (it is Szechuan after all). Tons of peppercorn and chili flakes. We all picked different things to try.

For meats, we went with sliced lamb shoulder, house special tender beef (just as described), handmade pork and cilantro balls, handmade lamb balls (these were gamey and delicious), shrimp ball, squid tentacle and Ecuador white shrimp (fresh and sweet).

For vegetables, we opted for tofu sheets, needle mushroom (aka. enoki mushrooms), king trumpet mushrooms, watercress, tung ho, broccoli, seaweed, fungus and green onion cake (hot and crispy).

For mains, we tried the hotpot noodle (chewy and toothsome) and sweet potato starch noodle.

I’d come back again for lunch (and this coming from a guy who barely goes for hot pot).

Better quality meats compared to Hot Pot 97.
