Guangzhou’s one-of-a-kind steamboat restaurant 小鱼儿顺德私房菜
When in China, hot pots are a must-eat. But if you’re ever in Guangzhou, make sure to head down to 小鱼儿顺德私房菜 for an eye-opening experience – traditional Cantonese Shunde steamboat with an entire uncooked fish hanging above it.
The fish is deboned and pre-sliced so that it’s easier to cut into the soup with a pair of scissors, but diners can always ask the staff for help if they wish! Choose from a variety of fishes such as catfish and river-caught fishes, which range from RMB118 to RMB178 (SGD$24 – SGD$36).
In case you’re worried that the fish will be in the way when you’re scooping things out from the pot, there’s a button at the base of the hook that allows you to raise and lower the fish as well.
As usual, the soups have a free refill, and the hot pot set comes with a variety of vegetables. If you’d like to pimp up your hot pot, additional sides ranging from an assortment of seafood and greens are also available for add-on!
Make sure you head down early though, because this hot pot restaurant is undeniably fascinating and constantly packed during peak dining hours. I guess you can say it got us all hooked.
